Dos and Don'ts of Public Voting

Thanks for rallying your networks to vote on the Popular Choice Award of the Samsung Galaxy Note S Pen App Challenge. Only 3 days left to vote: keep it up!

To ensure the integrity of the competition, we'd like to caution you against unfair or fraudulent voting practices that could disqualify a submission. Here are some basic Do's and Don'ts. For full details, please refer to the Official Rules.


  • Register for one account per person. 
  • Vote once daily for each of your favorite submissions. 
  • Tell a friend to vote. (Legally, of course.)

Attempting any of the following could be grounds for disqualification!

  • Register for more than one account per person. 
  • Use an automated process or similar device to vote, including but not limited to a robot, program, script, macro, or other automated means or other source. 
  • Pay people or provide any other type of consideration in exchange for votes. 

We will be fully investigating all votes before determining the winners. Just because a vote appears on the site does not mean it is an eligible vote. We check votes via a wide variety of criteria and are confident that any bad votes won't be counted. If you want to make sure we notice fraudulent votes, email us at with the subject "Bad Samsung votes" and include a link to the submission in question.

Now that we've got that squared away, go vote! We look forward to crowning the crowd favorites.
