My Friends Cannot Vote

Posted by: Marcia Colelli on 05/17/2013 - 6:25 AM

I have several friends that have told me they tried to vote and cannot because they do not have a FB account.

This is unfair practice to do since it says it is open to the general public to vote. It eliminates many of the votes I would be able to get.

Is there another way for them to get past this login to your FB account to vote.

Marcia, send your friends an email with a link to your image in the contest. They will probably have to sign up to FAA via a pop-up, but that takes just seconds. Hope it works and good luck!

Thank you Colleen

I did try that and they told me they did not want to sign up for any sites to be able to vote.
They should just let people vote without the requirements of being on FB or FAA

Yes, but I think this is one way FAA builds up its mailing list, so it is understandable. You could suggest to your friends that they sign up to FAA, vote, try out the site, and if they find they don't like to receive their mailings, they can Unsubscribe. This website seems quite user-friendly and receptive to queries, so I think it would not be difficult to Unsubscribe. They may discover they enjoy the updates from FAA. I hope your friends have a change of heart. Sounds like you may have to be persuasive. Good luck, Marcia.

Thank you Colleen
I do realize they do this get email addresses but some of my friends and family do not do photography and are not artist. So, to them this is annoying part of trying to vote. They have told me they will not sign up for a site only to get more spam.

Thank you for the votes
