And we are off ... and still as slow as ever.
And still counting against last year.

New Year and always can't see the site :shrug: But for everybody who can
To all voters for this site.... I go here https://www.proxysite.com/
Copy link to the voting site: http://1award.co.uk/addvote.php?vote=8733
Then follow the directions in the images below. Remember to do both pages, and after hitting GO and you get the page that tells you how many the votes are....change the link back to the voting one and do the process again.
ALWAYS untick those little boxes to make sure it does not see you anymore.
(to see pictures, go there: http://thefantasiesattic.net/attic/index.php?topic=14084.msg262249#msg262249 )
and
go here to find more proxy sites to choose from and remember to uncheck any "tracking" and do like the other one
More proxy sites (http://www.newproxysites.com/)

It is still stuck on last year so it is a :whattodo: moment

Mary said she is waiting on them once again.
This year I've changed my VPN to Nord and I have so many VPN connections it's not even funny. Got over 393 that work in the US alone at last count. Still testing it out. It was on sale for a two year period and I said "Why Not"....Merry Christmas from Me to Me.....
So with help from others who know how to do the multiple Voting postings...we'll be ahead of things in no time.

I try even with the VPN sites gave by Mary 2 years ago. No way to go and vote :explode:

That is okay as of this morning my time it was still registering 2017

There's got to be something better out there so I'll go hunting tomorrow.....

:nyfathertime: The Voting Site is UP now! :new_year_3:
The Fantasy Attic now has 1 votes towards this years awards

So it is now registering in 2018. Nice!
(I got the first one I got the first one nya nya, nya nya nyaaaa!)

I also switched from my normal use of the wired connect to the DSL to using my phones MUCH faster G4 LTE mobile service. Wow if I could only get that for my ISP for a reasonable price it'd be great! Accessing the voting site takes several minutes each, to get IN, then to cast the vote and it come back with its reply. Going thru the cellular it's instant. Now, back to your normal scheduled programming!

Ah someone else voted too!

Kianna is human from the far future where science rules and that is how her hair got replaced with bone tentacles instead of staying bald.

Hey folks, I do the vote thing from my telephones connection. Takes a couple seconds. Not minutes. AT&T 4G LTE, but likely even 2G would be way faster than this normal mess. Then, I just switch back. Easy peasy! :yippee: :smile:

I have only a connection by computer here McG, no cellphone. And from France it's a lost time alas. Even trying by vpn that Mary gave us by the past.

I just open a new tab and when the spinning wheel rubbish stops I go to the page and vote and then go back to where I was until that wheel stops spinning.

Yup...that's what I'm doing now...typing while waiting LOLOL

Anyone else having trouble voting? The voting site refuses to open for me, just a blank page :(

Mary and Aelin report the same thing. One does have to wait for bit before it opens (perhaps several minutes) even for those of us who can get it to work. It's not always that slow, but I don't give up until about 5 minutes in.

Don't have an accurate time for it but it seems like about 5  10 minutes, from start to finish just to cast one vote
:sigh:

Hi Mary!
I have an AT&T GO Phone plan. I've bought 3 actual GO Phones at Walmart, since I discovered the AT&T ones were WINDOWS phones. I really like my Windows phone, truly I do. But now M$ has stopped making phones. Dagnabbit! But I still have mine, they are working fine, the 3 I keep up. And AT&T now simply calls it "AT&T Prepaid Service", as a sort of adopted red headed stepkid sort of thing. Its the bottom rung, I think. BUT, it also provides 4G LTE, unlimited voice, texts and 6 gb high speed data with unlimited low speed data when that 6 gigs is used. They also have high speed data rollover for 1 month. Means the next month you can have up to 12 gigs high speed data.
The thing is, I can use this phone as a WiFi Internet Hot Spot, sort of a personal ISP with AT&T hosting. I use this to load the vote site and vote in about a full second. As fast as I click the mouse, it comes up and votes. Cool. Using the regular DSL ISP, it takes minutes for the site to even come up, then another 1 or 2 to register the vote click. Ridiculous! If I could use AT&T this way for my ISP full time I think I would. BUT, they would have to provide full time high speed data or no go.
