Every build off that I have been in a Builder's Choice vote is brought and we all think it's a great idea. What do we need to make it happen? I don't think it can be done with the polling tools provided with the forum software. Does anyone know if SurveyMonkey can support a restricted access list of voters? Without some automated polling, it would have to be done manually by someone.
I made a survey monkey that lets you rank the builds 1-54. I can post the link if we are interested in a "builder-only" ranking.

Haha. From tapatalk it takes you into the browser of your choice and then dumps a tapatalk "get the app" screen on you...
Like the dude said it's a hassle...

Oh it works, but like most cell phone apps trying to run full internet programs, the interface just isn't smooth. You can read forums all day in tapatalk, and post pictures from your phone but the quality is only as good as your phone and you're missing a lot of stuff we see easy on a computer.

UH oh.....seven days to vote, and I thought that meant you could come back and vote within that seven day period, never thinking you had to cast all of your votes one shot..(what a dough-head....or maybe I'm not) ..some of this voting stuff is not very clear when one is a first time voter. :13:

...I want to add more votes...now It seems that I can't..
any workaround?

No, and it wasn't very clear. I sent a message to Rat Rod specifically asking him to state that, and to put all the voting rules up front, that was yesterday morning before it even got posted. Also the bit about multiple votes (new rule for this build off). I got no response whatsoever. Kind of urinates me off...

Seems like a nice idea:
12 votes based on the question: Which bike would you like to stare at for a whole month on the wall over your desk/work bench.
Will try to remember that for next years vote!

And with the 4 votes I got until I last checked, I nevertheless will join in again next year. The fun is in the building and sharing. Ok, winning is fun too, but hey, I'm a winner already: I won a new and unique bike to ride with!

And for the others on the same end of the list: Without us there would be no winners at all! Rat on!
That's the right attitude man! We build for ourselves first.....that's my motto!

I'm glad to hear it wasn't just me....lol....:bigsmile:
I read a lot of "Oh, I didn't know I could cast multiple vote" threads.
and, when I first read the voting thing, I mistakenly thought that the 'polls' would be open for 7 days"...so I just cast one vote..figured I'd come back after reviewing some of the other bikes...

Oh well, what's done is done.....
It sure was a great experience

The post explaining it ALL is the first one! Right before all the Pretty Pictures. I don't think it's fair to complain about the rules when they ARE posted. Understand if you're using a phone to access the internet, it's YOUR choice to use a program that doesn't show you everything (tapatalk) or a real web browser like Chrome or Firefox...
