I'd like to point out, that the MOTD in the game still references the OLD poll.  The new poll, which has already expired, was not voted on by myself, or any of my guild because we were not made aware in game that the poll had changed.  While my guild's votes may not have made much difference, I think it is unfair to have had a second poll and not notified everyone in the same manner you notified everyone about the first poll.

2nd one was a farce anyway.  It's obvious someone found a way to "hack" the poll.  It shot up over 2000 votes in one hour, it was NOT the way to do so.

I dont get why they even needed a second poll.  Seemed fishy to begin with.  I mean is there going to be a THIRD poll to put the first and second place winners in?

whats up with having a second poll, not telling us in advance that this was going to happen, and not clearly mentioning it once it was decided?  I call shananagins!  let the first poll stand

the problem with the first poll is that they split las vegas up into 3 categories which was not fair.

There was indeed a flaw in the polling system. There was an exploit that I discovered by accident during the first poll that would have allowed me, if I so chose, to cast as many votes as I wanted to.

I'm sure I'm not the only one who discovered this flaw as it was quite easy.

No doubt that's what happened to the 2nd poll.
