      @Watasha I'm wondering if we have to vote for all the matches in order for our vote to count???

      Look at this:
      STAT Executive Editor Rick Berke said the newsroom received more than 100 entries for the contest, each describing the value of innovative research published in a peer-reviewed journal. UMMS is one of 32 entries chosen to compete in the first round of voting. Voting rounds will be held weekly until two winners are declared on April 3; one will be a “people’s champion,” chosen by most online votes; the other will be an editor’s pick, chosen by STAT journalists.​

      I'm thinking we only have to vote for Michigan and not the other matches!!!! If we keep voting for the other guys they'll forever have more votes than Michigan!! :eek: What have we done!?:banghead:
      I better make a new video!...hahahaha


      I've searched online and can't find much info.

      @PerturbedDude You started this and left us?? You better be voting!? :watching::LOL:

      Will do, although I think aiding some of the weaker matches is not a bad strategy. I don't think we can compete with the George Washington University one if we end up head to head. Many of the votes of their competitor came from us. Also, by total votes, I am sure they mean bracket winner, otherwise there is no point in doing a bracket. They would just let everyone vote on all 64. So I don't think total votes is what they really mean.

      To me it looks like the 'vote again' button simply erases your votes so that you can vote for different candidates if you like. The vote total decreases by the exact number of votes I've cast if I hit 'vote again'. Someone also mentioned this a few pages back.

      This is not consistent with communications from STAT staff. I have seen what you speak of, but too many people are voting for there to be a good controlled environment in place to test this theory. The "results" page steadily increases.

      I think you just vote for Michigan and wait. I don't see any reason to risk it though. I am still trying to vote for the weakest links for the next round.

      I think if you don't get that message, your vote isn't counted. It seems you need to vote for all the matches in a given round.
