Ballot stuffing opportunity

I have added Cornell Big Red men's ice hockey to [www.ranker.com]

We are currently #334.

Let a hundred flowers bloom. If you type "cornell" into the "something missing" entry it will find the existing Cornell record for you to click.

Why, yes, I am bored today.

For me, it simply found the existing Cornell record and assured me it existed. How the hell do I GET there to vote it up?

Worked fine for me. You just go there find it in the pick list and click the up arrow.

Oh Evidently you have to scroll down and let it keep adding groups until you get to 335, then click the up arrow. Sorry for the extra step.

Several steps, but okay. I'm game, once. Looks like I'm the only one so far, though.

If you have trouble finding Cornell, just type in Cornell in the "something missing" box. It's at the end of the # 100 rank, right before the "Load More" click. It will then show you what # is Cornell. Now on to Reranking...........

#16 / 34 votes / somebody even bothered to downvote us! :)

You don't have to search anymore, just scroll to it.

Once a day is for those who don't clear cookies and use different IPs. :)

Everybody else in the top 20 goes down. Of course.

From that 2 I can only assume somebody else is doing the same thing. :-)

Note: don't submit your own ranking ("rerank" ) . The disadvantage is it only lets you vote once, so your "super vote" isn't as powerful as repeated votes.
For example, when I reranked Cornell actually dropped because (I assume) I lost my revotes. Also it appears there's no going back once you rerank. So it was a Bad Choice (tm). :-(

BTW the crosstab rankings (men, region, etc) don't seem to make any sense.

I would expect that if you were to delete your cookies for ranker you'd be able to vote again.

I have no idea how to delete cookies selectively for one website

However, blowing away cookies does enable you to vote again.

I think I will try this.

The procedure is a little different for the different browsers, but it should be possible in any of them. (It's certainly possible in Chrome and Firefox.) In a nutshell you find all your cookies, and then within that screen search for "ranker", and then just delete the "ranker" cookies.

It's pretty straight-forward.

Thanks, it was easy. I didn't think to try the browser settings, I thought you had to somehow go through the site itself.

No problem at all.

So...did clearing the Ranker cookies allow you to vote again?

Yes you can. I believe you can also vote once with each browser without messing with cookies. So for a Windows 10 PC that should mean once for each of the two MS browsers and once for the browser you actually use.
