Have to agree with you - surely it means more if lots of people genuinely want to see Serenity, rather than a few well-meaning BCs casting multiple votes?

My thought is that if people see a 15% or higher on the polls, it may pique their interest enough into going to see it and opening themselves up to the shiny goodness that is Serenity.

Hmmmmm...

It's completely wrong and unethical... but if people who have never heard of Serenity see it at the top of the list they may just go, "huh?! Serenity? It must be good, I think I'll go see it..." And then they'll buy the DVDs and watch them and get the comics and then start posting here - we'd actually be doing them a favor... how can that be bad?

Public awareness by any means!!! A higher % on such a high profile site means more people will be asking themselves, "What is this thing call Serenity?". :)

That can't not be a bad thing! ;)

I've said it before about these online polls - they aren't contests we can win or tests we can cheat on. They are purely for entertainment, and if I can get Serenity more exposure by voting more than once I will do it. So should you!

Here's a quote from MSNBC about their live votes and surveys,
"MSNBC’s Live Votes are not intended to be a scientific sample of national opinion. Instead, they are part of the same interactive dialogue that takes place in our online chat sessions: a way to share your views on the news with MSNBC writers and editors and with your fellow users. Let us know what you think."

IMO ethics and online “Buzz Gauging/Non-scientific” polls are apples and oranges. If it was supposed to be a scientific poll then there are many things MSN could have done to prevent/reduce the number of multiple votes.

In part, the purpose of these polls is to gauge the amount of “buzz“ that is surrounding a film. This includes gauging how quickly word of the poll spreads among the fan base. It is obvious that “Corpse Bride” fans got an early start on the voting/multiple voting. If a certain fan base were to try and be ethical in one of these polls, it would only prove that the fan base wasn’t as excited about their film (or in some cases, not as large and not capable of high vote count).

Multiple voting in these entertainment polls is expected. If it wasn’t then they “Would” take steps to make it a poll that produced more “scientific” results.

Basically, it's all in good fun and let the most rabid fan base win!!!! :)

I agree that this poll is just for fun, and it probably won't matter if someone votes more than once.
However, I will not change my mind that doing so is wrong, and I won't do it.
I'd also like to think that most Browncoats have enough class to not rig a poll. That way, when Serenity wins, we know it's because it really is the most anticipated movie.

That's my point too - if we all vote once, and it still wins, we'll know that Serenity is genuinely anticpated by lots of people. I appreciate your argument that it's all good hype - but it's still false hype.

But hey, it's all a bit of fun anyway.

I do appreciate the point about voting multiple times - but.....

I think we can use all the help we can get - I just had a relative email cause of this poll -- he'd never heard of Serenity and wanted to know what I could tell him about it. He was interested cause he wanted to know what could have come close to Corpse bride!

So even if people don't vote - they are looking at what other people are waiting to see-- :D
