You can say that about so many kf the titles on the list.

And the reason you are being rude to me is....

ALL the polls and votes I have participated in (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Telegram...) show the results after voting. Not this one, this one says "Thanks for voting" and doesn't show anything else.

But hey, if you're happy being nasty to strangers, go ahead....

Saluditos,

Ferrán.

Very true. I guess everyone has their own favourite…

So are you suggesting that someone else has upvoted the game you have been involved in, or do you seriously believe that the "Abu" game has received more genuine votes than the other games (i.e Metal Gear, Tiny Ur etc).

No, YOU are suggesting that I did, without ANY evidence.

I posted the poll to several Telegram Amiga groups in Spanish. Only one of them has almost 700 users. And, yes, I asked them to vote for "Abu Simbel". Some users did, some did not. Is there anything wrong with this?

That's VERY DIFFERENT from cheating.

I find your attitude unfair, rude and nasty.

Saluditos,

Ferrán.

It's not exactly ethical is it or fair to the other competitors who actually put effort into making their games, so yes, I'd say it's equivalent to cheating or put another way... unfair (pretty much equivalent to what the Eurovision song contest is)

If you have ANY evidence, post it here. If you do not, you are a LIAR.

Regarding asking someone to vote for something, are you being stupid on purpose? Asking someone to freely do something does not mean he will do. I KNOW users that, voting what they wanted, did not vote "Abu Simbel" (they posted their votes publicly in the group). You can ask @Falken, his signature points to one of those groups.

By the way, you've gone from accusing me of using bots (I wouldn't even know how to make one) to saying it's "unethical" to ask for a vote for a game? ARE YOU KIDDING ME?

And all that for a stupid poll…

Saluditos,

Ferrán.

A stupid poll? You're the one pleading with your mates to vote on the fucking thing. It's desperate, it really is. You couldn't just play fair could you.

I'm done with this bollocks, it's a waste of my fingertips.

Yes, A STUPID POLL. If you don't understand that, you have a problem. For me it has been something FUNNY, as was asking others to vote for it. As funny as it is IRRELEVANT.

I asked the author of the game for permission to quote his words when he heard about the mess:

"Then get rid of these polls, which serve no other purpose than to feed egos".

He cares ZERO about the outcome of that poll.

By the way, LIAR, I don't see you posting any evidence that I am using bots. Are you going to post any, LIAR?

Saluditos,

Ferrán.

I hope you´ll recover soon, LIAR, I understand that such a beating leaves after-effects, especially psychological ones...

Ah, another great advert for the Amiga community.

Poor Neil probably thought he would make a fun little competition to celebrate a bunch of recent games.

Ha! Au contraire, Neil! You didn't count on our ability to suck all the life and joy out of absolutely everything and start a massive shit fight over the tiniest of issues.

That'll teach you to celebrate a bunch of recent games!!
