    At the top of this (and every) THW forum page is a navigation menu bar.
    The menu includes a link titled “Vote for Us” See it?

    This link directs users to Game Sites 200 while at the same time allowing them to cast a ballot for their favorite site in a straw poll.

    Check out our profile page at gamesites200.com.

    How Game Sites 200 Works
    Game Sites 200 is a top sites list that is dedicated in showing you the best sites. We have over 35 games lists, each with their own respective sites.
    Ranking of pages are done according to the number of votes in by a site each month. A 'vote' occurs when a person clicks on the GameSites200 voting link on a site's page, and then clicks on 'OK' to vote. Advanced anti-cheating measures are taken in order to ensure the lists remain free of cheaters.
    A vote out is a hit we send to your website.
    Our code is based on the powerful and versatile evoTopsites, a commercially available top sites list.
    Every month, we reset the number of votes in [a member can still view them from accessing the member's section] so that new sites have a fair chance of reaching the top.
    The benefits to this are that sites with higher ranking are usually better than sites found through a search engine. Anyone can optimize a site for search engines, but getting people to vote for them is an entirely different matter.

    I encourage every loyal Hive Workshop member to navigate this link in both directions once per day.

    Is it worth the effort?

    I hate it when people leave out the "I don't care" choice. In which case I'll go with the top one.

    Well... you may as well count those that don't care checking the number of views the thread has. Substract the number of voters and you have the number of people who don't care. Yes, it's rather barbaric what I said above, as views are not user-restricted as votes are (one user could check the thread repeatedly).
    Then again, that means he/she might not want to post/vote yet is still interested, so that lowers even more the number of users that don't care.

    Simply by checking this thread it means you give a nickel about THW. Voting in the poll further represents that. Voting for THW on GameSites only adds you to a statistic. Of those who care.

    It's your call. Do it or not. But always try to give a little from what you receive back to those who offered you something - in our case, from THW.

    Cheers!

    I believe the choice you're looking for is "I’m not old enough/not registered to vote," since that's generally the only excuse for not caring what happens to a country.

    I never noticed it, I'll be sure to click it.

    For those who are indifferent, I provided the option

    Umm…meh…I dunno.

    I guess I should have made it "dunno/don't care."

    Somebody um... kinda cracked me up when they said (elsewhere) that they weren't OLD ENOUGH to vote. LOL: click the link anyway and see what happens, young Skywalker.

    Well said, BlackDoom: articulate, profound and wise. We Americans can't say such things these days.

    I will update the chart in a couple of days so that we can all see just exactly how much impact we are making.

    As everyone can see from the above line graph, The Hive's position on the gamesites200 Warcraft 3 Top 200 has continued to climb and has now solidified comfortably in position numeral uno.

    [sound]http://hiveworkshop.com/gfx/wolve/sounds/coolyea.wav[/sound]

    The Hive's loyal users have driven us to the top of the chart and are keeping us there by an overwhelming margin!

    What we all can do to keep THW firmly atop the Warcraft 3 Top 200 FTH!
    • As always, navigate the voting link in each direction once per day.

    • Save the gamesites200 Warcraft 3 Top 200 in our internet shortcuts:
      each time we buzz to The Hive, stop off and bump the ballot box.

    • Add this vBulletin code to our signature files or posts:
      [URL="http://www.gamesites200.com/warcraft/in.php?id=25"]Vote[/URL]

    For The Hive! :coolgrunt:

    This is promising :)

    I vote once every few days, only because some days I forget. I have an absolutely terrible memory.

    Vote Every Day!

    Some lamah spammer clan has bumped us out of our top position at gamesites200. They went from 165th place to first and are outvoting us at an alarming rate (probably just a few persons spamming the ballot box).

    Are we going to let a site described as "Advance Dota League" beat out we dedicated and talented Warcraft III modders?

    yeah maybe

    NO WAY!
    I'M GOING TO

    VOTE
    EVERY DAY!
