    Thanks guys! See if you can get at least one other person to do it, that would help a lot too. Each "love" is worth 10, so I'm trying to network. Get your wife, husband, brother, sister, mother...hell..make your grandpa/grandma a facebook and have them do it. ha! XD

    Thanks for all the support though, this means so much to me. Whether I win or not, this has been a fun (yet stressful) experience.

    Wow, that was a lot of links, but I got through them all. Good luck!
  • ZaticusZaticus Indianapolis
    Thank you @Colgere! It's a pain in the butt. I almost regret entering the contest because of the constant begging I have to do in order to stay in first place. Nonetheless, thank you for your help!

    Holy crap. The one with the blood scared me at first glance. Then I remembered they're gag pics... or so I hope. Anyway, got 'em all.
  • ZaticusZaticus Indianapolis
    haha. They are most definitely gag photos, @V|P. Thank you very much!

    At first, when he said "she", I thought "I mean, she has boobs. It is hard to beat boobs on the internet." but then I saw that Quincey was a dog. No dog is going to win a car over a human on this internet!

    At first, when he said "she", I thought "I mean, she has boobs. It is hard to beat boobs on the internet."
    This is true, @Tushon. Isn't it a general internet rule that girls don't exist on the internet? Therefore, I am not competing against anyone with boobs.
  • ZaticusZaticus Indianapolis
    I don't know how she's doing it, but the dog is already up to 14000 points. She went up 2500 points in one day! I'm not sure if she's creating new facebook pages and cheating by loving the photos herself, or if she's just really good at networking. Either way, I'm bummed. D:

    I just went through and Love'd, +1d, and liked every link on your list. I hope it works out for you. Good Luck!!

    I'll pitch this to the wife and try and get a few friends to help out.
  • IlriyasIlriyas The Syrupy Canadian Toronto, Ontario
    I'm gonna try running this by a few friends, should get you some more points, although a few of them aren't too keen on linking anything through facebook spam or no spam.

    Thank you @Missileman, and @MiracleManS. And I know what you mean @Ilriyas, that's the problem I'm having even getting some of my close friends to help out...people can be kinda paranoid about their personal information. But nonetheless, I appreciate all of your help!

    @Zaticus I managed to convince 3 friends to love your pics, would've had 4 but one guy doesn't have facebook and never wants to get it.

    For literally the 4th time hope you win the contest. :D
  • ZaticusZaticus Indianapolis
    Haha. Thanks @Ilriyas! I haz solutions:

    Option 1: Leave threatening voice mails on friends phone and Force friend to make facebook and love photos. Option 2: Make him a facebook, and force him to love photos.

    Okay, maybe neither of these options are a good idea. ha! Thanks for the continued support!
  • ZaticusZaticus Indianapolis
    So Quincey is now in first place! Kinda sucks, but with a week left it's going to be quite a challenge to fight for the lead. If I can get some more help I would truly appreciate it..I'm trying to get some more people to help with networking. 8 days left, so I can stop bugging everyone to help me in about a week! ;P Thank you fellow Icrontians for the help!

    Aight, we've got what? A few THOUSAND active-semi active members on Icrontic? I'm sure that if everyone took about 5 minutes of their time we'd be able to boost you up into the 'impossilose' areas.
  • CharshieCharshie Hollywood, California
    Whew. I helped. Click click click.

    I'm so bad at this game. I went into the whole shebang and double checked for the proposed white "love" button. I didn't love them all. Fixing that now.

    Edit: And in doing that, I've helped widen a narrow margin.

    Thank you both, @Charshie and @MiracleManS. :)

    And once again, @Ilriyas, thank you for your efforts. I figure if I keep reminding people maybe I can get at least a few more people to help. I don't know how else to get the word out there that I need help, without annoying people (well, more than I probably have already).

    If you, or anyone else, has any ideas on how to get the word out...please let me know! Thank you!

    Argh, Eric just went to second place by two hundred some points. This isn't going to be easy.

    As much as I hate adding additional facebook apps, I did this just to help a brotha out.

    However, even though the counter incremented on each photo as I clicked, the point total did not increase. I'm cornfuzzled. His score should increase by 190 points per Icrontian who participates, and it stayed at 22,500 after I clicked all the "Love this" icons.
  • I loved them all, good luck!
  • I refreshed a little while later and the points had added to the total.

    @GHoosdum, yep, you got it... there is like a 30 minute delay before the points show up. And thanks for the help!

    Thank you's also go out to @AuthorityAction, @Teramona, and @LeahVoice, and everyone else who's contributed so far. You guys are amazing.

    And many thanks to @primesuspect, and all of your facebook friends who have helped! What a pleasant surprise, dude you rock! That is a great idea, I need more Icrontians to do make a similar post on their facebooks! Thank you so much!

    As an update, Jahn shot up 9000 points from a distant 3rd place to take the lead... he is now in first place with about 4700 points more than I have. Although this is upsetting, I would much rather have him beat me than Quincey (currently in 3rd place). At least Jahn's photos are actually amusing.

    Anyways, remember...if I win this car I will buy a bunch of good beer for the next Icrontic party (if that is motivation for people to help). Boulevard Wheat is on the line! =]

    Okay guys, here's the news. Jahn has taken the lead by a wide margin, putting @Zaticus in a distant 2nd place... and Quincey is biting at his heels in 3rd place.

    With the contest ending in almost exactly one week from now (closes Saturday Jan 14th at 11:59pm aka midnight on Sunday), we need one final push. We've been in this contest for almost a month already now, so this is the moment of truth. We need not only your help, but to bring in your friends and family as well.

    So @Zaticus has cooked up one helluva incentive. Since you're all going above and beyond to help him out, he's decided to give back. On top of driving up his new Sonic to Expo Icrontic (EPIC) 2012 to celebrate with a cargoload of premiere brews, he has now set up a raffle.

    The prize? A 16GB iPad 2. Pretty swank. And for you Apple-haters (you know who you are), you can substitute an Android tablet of your choice (up to the value of the iPad offered, $500).

    For participating, you get 1 raffle ticket. To up your chances to win, for every person you refer to participate, you get 1 additional ticket. Just comment as you go to how many you've referred (on your honor) and it'll be recorded in this Google Doc spreadsheet. So if you've already gotten 4 to help, just say "I also referred 4 people". If you get more, make another comment like "scored another x peeps for the cause". Post these comments on either thread, we'll count them either way.

    There's a second thread detailing the raffle giveaway, so be sure to check it out for more detailed information!
