SPLOOFUS GOOFUS- "NEW RULES" [A LA BILL MAHER]

Okay, this thread has been started to get serious about voting Sploofus Goofus to be the new mystery flavor for Rita's Water Ice.
It's like a "new rule". If you agree, stick to this thread.
If you would rather debate Collioure's "lawn chair dilemma"- you may appreciate the other thread's ebb and flow.
Collioure has been one of the diligent "Ice Guy" voters however, so kudos to him.

The current leader entered this namby pamby suggestion only about 6 hours ago [approx. 2:30 a.m.]

PEDO BERRY - has over 15000 votes and a 4.99 rating!!!!!
How can this be? Who is Pedo?-- Does he/she have 15000 fans?
NOOOOooooooooooooooooooooooooooo.
Manipulation.

So let's fight back. Sploofus has our own army of manipulators.

Use this link to get to the Sploofus Goofus page.
Vote early -and often! It can be done. Voting continues until April 17.

[I hope it works]

Let's do it..

As Alvandy said, this is now a Lawn-Chair-Free zone.

For the Rita's newbies -- when you go to that link, you should click on the FIFTH "Ice Guy" (even though it appears grayed out).... Clicking on the FIFTH guy means you are giving Sploofus Goofus the highest vote.

(It appears grayed out because the website is portraying the current voting score, but you can -- and should -- vote with the highest possible vote, i.e. the fifth guy.)

We suspect that the competitors are selecting the first Ice Guy for Sploofus Goofus, thus dragging down our average vote. We can do the same to our competitors.

As for Pedo Berry, sounds like someone has rigged their computer to keep voting over and over. Which requires deleting cookies (I think) and in this case automation.

Rita's will pick the flavor name out of the top finishers, so we can win even if we aren't first.

Go, Sploofus Goofus, go!

Thanks to Bigdavy, Nelly, OC, Jank, Collioure-- and all the others who are voting regularly

Bigdavy has pointed out the problem for us. Several entries have figure out multiple/ automated voting schemes.

My opinion [and hope] is Rita's will see the obvious vote rigging scheme and look at serious contenders.
I think if we can amass just a few thousand votes, Sploofus Goofus will be considered because of our novel and "goofy" name.

It would be a mystery where the name Sploofus came from!
Perhaps some folks would google "Sploofus" and voila- they might visit the website and Sign up!!

Justin has given me his blessing to our campaign. No copyright issues using Sploofus as part of the name.

So- keep voting.

46 votes later and we drop from 4.14 to 4.06.

We're being undermined. I hope it isn't a disgruntled Sploofuser who is not "with the program."

5 Ice Guys on every click.

Let's make Sploofus famous!

Have you noticed how PEDO BERRY's rating has dropped? It now has an even more unbelievable 21307 votes but the rating has dropped to 3.82!

There is a lot of manipulating the votes going on. Computer hacks are rampant. [ Not us, of course ]
It might be best for us to stay out of the Top 10 for now, and keep us off their radar.
Slowly move up the ladder!

Not "quite" allowed- there are flukes in the Rita's program. Some have exploited that.
Some entries have over 20,000 votes- the biggest being 67000 votes. How can that happen?

Let's be like Chicagoans!

Me thinks something sinister is afoot.
Sploofus Goofus has slipped below a "4"!

You've got to delete your cookies to vote more than once.

When I was on earlier one name got 60,000 votes in 5 minutes

We are being targeted! Fight back.

Who said it's over?

In the words of John "Bluto" Blutarsky -
Bluto: Over? Did you say "over"? Nothing is over until we decide it is! Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? Hell no!

We have 8296 votes!!!
But the rating is 3.91

Something rotten is going on.

Thanks to all who are still persevering. Justin is happy that Sploofus is getting some recognition and publicity.
Let's keep voting.

I've checked the rules and Rita's could exclude any entry that has used automated voting schemes, so some of the top entries are bogus and may get shelved.

I think we should try to acquire a few more hundred votes and try to get between 3.90-4.00. We will then have an opportunity to make the finals.

So- let's show them the Sploofus spirit!

Thanks
Al

I wonder if someone should resubmit using a similar name, sploofus goofus fruitus or something like that. Then we could all vote again but only once per computer. If we all hit the man on the far right we won't need as many votes

I have submitted a new name. Thanks for the encouragement to continue!!

See a new thread for details.

It's now called SPLOOFUS GOOFUS FRUITUS [KUDOS TO O.C.!!!!!]

note: they have a new security feature after you vote- so be it.

But there are vote leaders that have over 100,000 votes. They did not use automatic voting schemes?
e.g Colberry 159,000+ votes.
COLBERRY?
Ugh.
Give me a break!
