UPDATED! Phase II Voting instructions: Walk-through of the voting process
- Click on the “Regisztráció” link on the top left-hand corner of the page.
- Write in your email, and your password, and a repeat of the password (your password confirmation) in the three blank fields (IN THAT ORDER).
- In minutes, you get a mail with a confirmation link and your password. Click on the link included in the e-mail.
- When you click on the link in the e-mail, you will get redirected to the voting page.
- Type your e-mail in the E-mail cim field, and your password in the Jelsó field.
- Select the radial button by “Stephen Colbert híd” and click the Belépés button. You will be taken to a screen with the vote tallies. To vote again, click on the Kilépés button.
- “Belépések száma” means “Number of logins”. It does appear that you can vote unlimited times, but you have to be registered to do so.
- “Összesen” on the bottom means “All votes”, and the Toplista tally page seems to be working again if you would like to see the tally of all of the votes.
- And, in case you’re wondering, yes the Colbert Nation has already found a way to
cheatstuff the ballot box on this round of votes, too. But Colbert has requested (via the ColbertNation.com forums) that everyone play nice so that we don’t block out all of the other people from around the world who might want to vote. In other words – don’t cheat. Do it the long way.
A translation of the new front page:
On the main page shortly:
On 22 Aug the phase 1 of voting has closed. They are happy for the lot of ideas, some funny, some biting, some offensive. [First link to see the phase 1 nominations]
Against our plans, the lots of voters changed our mind: we send further 25 names instead of 10.
We don’t wait new names, but wait for new votes for the existing top 25.
The next phase last until 8 Sept, and you can vote only after registration. The votes made in the 1st phase _are nulled_. chanches are equal from now.
(some info about who will make decision blah blah) The winner of the second phase has a great chanche to be the name of the bridge.
A big HUUUUUGE and sincere Thank You to my faithful reader birogeri for getting a translation of the new page and new voting instructions.
Vote often because as Stephen Colbert says, “Carpel Tunnel is a small price to pay to give this gift to the Hungarian people.” Also, if you decide to use this information for your own web page, please put a link to this site on your blog. Thank you.
