Except none of that gimme monies i mak ur levls up hier.

I want to make a legit voting site so that users and server owners can trust rather than some shady s*** like the $100 whatever donating for extra votes. or whatever they do.

Is anyone interested in seeing this happen?

Free registration, but advertising is not. (i.e. your banner in the middle of the ranks.)

Actually. I'm very interested in seeing this happen. Make it happen. :3

I will advertise it to the fullest if it gets us something other than a RebirthRO circle-jerk or a proxy-vote fest.

Good luck if you do it. Let me know how it goes, you've got my MSN and my home number.

I wanna see more support before I put the effort into this.
I don't want to waste my time or money on this.

That would be epic! Hope you decide to make it.

I'm trying to find the evo script, but I can't find it...their site is down D:
I still need more people to want to see this happen.

Man, there was a site just like that once, it was called ratemyserver. But then the owner died of cancer and it went down.

Hope you can bring it back!

I don't plan on making another RMS
I want to make something like those gamesites200 lookalikes, but without any of the corruption, and with repercussions for cheating.

Don't do it.  It's a waste of your time.

If legit votes count and "donating" for votes doesn't, I'm all in.

You will not be able to donate for points/votes, however, there will be a monthly fee.
I don't want to have every 12 year old and their little sister making spam listings.
The monthly fee is tbd.
I will be the only one administrating this, and no one else. (To eliminate any chance of unfairness)
No server, not even ones I have any trace of relation with, will have a hand from me.
Not even my own server. Why? Wtf do you think I am making this for? Integrity, Honesty, and Reliability.
Enough of these bulls**t voting sites.

Especially if you're by yourself, barrier of entry is huge.

Zone,

Not going to work. The moment anyone sees "monthly fee", they're more or less going to go to the next site. Don't waste your time.

Good day.

I don't know how many Admins will take to seeing the monthly fee.

Depending on the fee, I may or may not be cool with it. As much as I would love to see a project like this, topsites are free for a reason.

That fee will only be in place if the other sites have one.
There has to be some way of making sure that every 12 year old and her little sister's boyfriend's cousin's dog doesn't register a server cause they have it on their computer and don't know how to set it up right.

I wouldn't recommend doing this.  If you're going to make a payment fee, people will swap over to other voting sites.  I mean, not many people actually care that people buy their votes.

Alright, I just looked into this, it's not the registration that costs cash, it's advertisement.
So yeah, listing your servers will be free.
Advertising them all over the place will not.

Now we're talking. I had a feeling you may have meant advertisement.

Yeah, I just had to look more into their sites to see what they charge for.
I intend it to be less then they charge for.

Well I can't see how that could go wrong

About the fee he's talking about. He means for banners, which is basically what topsites does anyway, they won't do spot advertisement for free.
