    It tracks vote by email address associated with the facebook account. Meaning you can only vote once per account. Just make a stinkin account and get your vote in. I don't care if you have to make a fake email just to make an account. VOTE!!!!

    I don't know why or how but I have voted 4 times with one account, I suggest you keep trying to vote. Maybe delete cookies to vote again. How can a down hill trail in Michigan win? What are they going to do, buy some dirt to build a hill? Come on people vote already!

    I tired to vote again and when you click to vote it then shows the stats and doesn't give me the pop up that happened the first time I voted. Same with you???
    Also I read that when voting first began they had some problems and had to start over. So if you voted right at the beginning, you might check to make sure you still get a vote in.

    Try and re-vote if you can. Chances are, your earlier vote no longer counts. I was able to re-vote this morning.

    Sorry, don't do FB and likely less a crybaby than yourself. If Bell truly wanted to determine which area had the most passionate riders, they shouldn't limit the vote to members of a "social network".

    P.S. name calling is no way to build support for, or a consensus of trail users of an area.

    To be fair, we only heard about the poll via a social network. How else besides a very expensive ad campaign would they spread it? I kind of think that's the point of a social network...

    I do however, think its limiting feedback not having an online poll. Or a phone-in. Or chipping on block tablets. Whatever was around when you grew up.

    I never knew facebook was such a bad thing. I can understand not having an interest in using it. I have a FB and rarely use it for anything but news on things like this poll and other interests. It's not like it has to be tied to your everyday email or even have your real name on it. This forum is worse than facebook.

    Anyway, who really cares. If you want a shot at having more awesome single track then find a way to vote. Otherwise it will be sad when we loose and loose the opportunity that could have helped biking in our area.

    Number one: I asked my parents to vote for me, but my dad was born and raised in Michigan. Big conflict of interest, so I did not push as hard as I typically would have.

    Number two: If I quit mountain biking I would have no use for MTBR. I would miss NateDogs posts though.

    Number three: If you have not seen the South Park "Facebook" episode you "may" have missed something special.

    Cheers and have fun everyone! I had no intention of sending this thread soooooooooo OT. I sure hope that everyone got out on two wheels this weekend! That is why we are here.

    We are down by 5%. Time to rally. Vote and consider posting this (or something like it) on your FB wall to get others to vote for SRTS:

    Friends, please do me a favor that will take about 10 seconds. We are trying to land a $100,000 grant for a local trail and need more votes. Click the link. Then click "Downhill Projects." Last, click on "Sandy Ridge Trails." Thank you. https://www.facebook.com/BellBikeHel...69747409753569

    This is what I get asked when I try vote. Does this concern any of you?

    Bell Built Grant would like to access your public profile, friend list and email address.

    Apps accessing your public profile get your name, profile picture, age range, gender, language, country and other public information.

    Yes, so I looked the other way and pushed the button for my vote. It's for a potential $100K for SR. I guess there really is no free lunch.

    Yeah, it concerns me. In fact I hate it.
    But I voted for Sandy Ridge anyway... I live 3+ hours away from Sandy.

    --sParty

    P.S. When I voted Monday it was 35% Sandy, 40% other trail. We're losing ground. Literally.

    Re: Vote for sandy ridge trail building grant!!!!

    It has to access your profile name to track the voting. All of the sweepstakes and polls on Facebook asks this because you don't have to enter any info like other sweepstakes style requests.

    When you sign up for anything on Facebook, there is a 99% probability that any information about you on Facebook is shared with the app, contest or survey company, regardless of how much information you provide at the time. The information is used to determine your marketing profile. The details are in the pages of fine print of the Terms and Conditions of your Facebook account. How do you think Facebook makes money?

    Of course, FB depends on us actually entering legit info into our profile(s), so we've got that going for us.

    This is probably one of the worst run online voting I have ever seen. I think I have voted 6-7 times, all from the same computer and Facebook account. It always takes my votes. Unless everyone is commited to voting everday, there is no way we'll catch up.
