We need a new forum subtopic!! (thanks for the idea OSP)

And we should title it, "I came here to vote, but I'm going to try to post something relevant so people don't think I simply came here to vote."

This way, the other areas of the forum won't get clogged up with, "Hi, I'm new and I know a guy who's married to a girl who has a dad that has a brother who dated this girl once that was really into bikes so he bought one to impress the girl and my dad rode it once and let his daughter sit on it and that really makes me think of buying a bike so could you give some advice as to what I should do with my ex-husband's fiance's brother's old bike that's sitting in a garage and hasn't been ridden in 25 years..." posts.

The mods can simply remove the area after the voting has ended and the forum will be back to normal once again.

Yeah it was a good post, but you are definitely right, you are going to pay for it.

I can still view my infraction points in my user cp. They expired but never go away. Those were the days.

Easy solution. New members that sign up the week of the voting are not allowed to vote. Its that simple.

Shan already covered this, he wants new members to vote. He wants the contest to generate interest in the site with the voting. Otherwise the numerous suggestions about having a post limit to vote would of been acceptable.
