    Default ****FAO of all Vectra-c members - Please read.****

    Guys,

    please take a look at this page. You will need to read the whole page and I apologise in advance for posting three replies on the bounce. iPhone wasn't playing ball.

    http://www.vectra-c.com/forum/showth...=130132&page=6

    I'm not a huge fan of garnering votes (hence why I never voted until last night) because I feel sorry for the guy who isn't in a car club but this is different as you will discover when you read the thread...

    Thanks.

    i've stuck an email into the ultimate finish complaining about the qashqai cheating


    Good Morning,
    Regarding this months competition entry of a Qashqai which seems to have soo many entries it seems unfair that people have resorted to cheating to "win" whereby they are actually resetting their I.P. address to allow them to re enter. if you read the Forum thread below you will see what I mean

    linky removed

    quoting one post in particular
    "Posted: Yesterday at 10:30pm
    Depending on who your provider (ISP) is you can get a new IP lease on reconnect.
    Here is a way to check:
    blah blah blah blah blah blah -----editted so no one on here does the same


    If it is not different, then this means the IP lease is assigned longer than a 20 minute reset. Most IP leases are 24 hours - which means if your router is off for 24 hours, next time it is on, you get a new public ip address"

    I am fully aware that people on forums will ask friends and families to assist with competition entries. I do not see an issue with this as its going to be mainly people on forums that have a love and passion for cars and detailing to the Highest standard as per most of your competition entries. But when there is a level of dishonesty (such as this) surely action must be taken on your part ?

    I sincerely hope that you do not condone this sort of activity ?

    I look forward to your response

    Regards

    Saves me making a call Dez although I was going to wait to see if the entry was withdrawn by the OP on there first. Having looked again it seems he's a Mod. too so I'm totally confused on how they run things on there.

    Back up to 20 votes ahead. Whether that's because of their ip voting technique or genuine votes it's difficult to tell. If it was me I would withdraw now. No choice particularly with there being a cash prize. Not good.

    Thanks to everyone who has voted so far and if you haven't already please, please do so. No ip changing stuff though. Khalid should win or lose fair and square.

    Hmmm they seem to have lost two pages from their thread including the bit about ip changing. Even a post from the entrant himself from this morning has altered to just ask for people to vote for him.

    Hopefully a pre cursor to withdrawing the entry. We'll see.

    Dez if you need the screen shots from the entire thread in it's original form let me know dude.
