Tutorial - "Why is vote not working?"

Postby wanestars » 26 Sep 2011, 15:37

Voting site: http://vote.citycraft.co.uk/

This is possibly the most-asked question, and the least answered, so I thought I might try to help people who have been having trouble.

Why is it the least answered?
With any computer system, there are a million different ways for things to go wrong, which makes it so hard to answer.
These are the problems I think are the most common problems, but I do not guarantee they will work for you.

How do I know if it's working?

Actually, it will tell you before you vote if it isn't working -- But it will not let you try again on that site that day.

Image

The red text says it cannot find me on the server, which means I will not be credited. But what is the problem?

First check: Am I logged in?

Go to the forum (You are already there!) and make sure you're logged in. Check the top right corner.

Image

Here, I am not logged in. But it's still not working.

Next: Do I have my in-game name in my profile?

If you go to the User Control Panel and check under profile, you'll see an option labeled "In-game name"
Image

Here, I made sure I had my in-game username (wanestars) entered.

What else could I try?

Are you actually on the server? Minecraft has to be on and you have to be on the server for it to find you.

Image

I did all this and voted and nothing's happening!

Try waiting a few minutes! There's a delay -- Some people reported waiting as long as 10 minutes.

I still can't get it to work.

Did you hit a child? Did you lie or cheat? Maybe karma hates you. Some days, computers just get lazy.

You lied to me. You said this would work.

No I didn't. But feel free to rant at me below ---------------------vvvvvvvv
