the real triumph of the contest was the domination of Fedtards in the last stages and the fact was zero Dull fans there.
Good to see you're still well alive even if you were in the section of Amazonian women.

I think if it was, he would've just ignored the question. I guess we'll see.... if Noserer comes back or not.

Re: 2012 MTF Popularity Contest News Thread

How was it possible that a guy with multiple accounts was running this contest?
Maybe all those multiple accounts were reason he was doing a shitty job.

Re: 2012 MTF Popularity Contest News Thread

I don't have time to write a 3,000 word essay (sorry Andrey ) as I am currently really late for the Christmas party that I'm going to , so I'll just say a few things:

1. Congrats to viruzzz for making it to the final! Very deserving finalist for his contributions to GM and making me laugh out loud in real life with some of his fantastic posts, and of course, his contributions to Fed forum.

2. Congrats to Andrey and George for making to to the SF (and Andrey for winning the bronze medal ), especially George the noob for making it that far.

3. Thanks to everyone that voted for me - I was shocked when I was seeded #1, didn't expect to win, and am genuinely surprised that a few people seem to like me.

4. Special thanks to Nathaliia, Thanos, silverwhite and Gagsquet for the constant support and enthusiasm throughout the whole contest, especially SW who got a few of his TF buddies to vote for me.

5. Thanks also to the posters that consistently voted for me throughout the contest (to name a few names, Hewitt =Legend, Thanos, Nathaliia, SW, Gagsquet's pr0xy [why the hell is this word censored? ], Sham Kay, Chirag, Keech, 156mphserve, Deathless Mortal...if I wasn't in a rush I'd list everyone alas I'm sorry) - it means a lot.

6. In case you guys didn't know, silverwhite is the PopCon winner over at TennisForum and he's Singaporean like me, so Singapore rocks.

7. Thanks to our poor banned friend, Johnny Groove, for organising this contest. Could've gone more smoothly at times but overall a job well done.

8. Finally, I've had a pretty rough 2012 to put it mildly (though my last two months in London were absolutely fantastic), so this is a nice way to balance out the crappy shit in my life.

Thanks again.

Roger Federer

I mean I don't know for sure if he was Noserer but Noserer was obvious DA and it would be too big coincidence to happen at the same time. Even more, Noserer isn't on banned members list and this is practice when DA gets permabanned.
And the most important fact which tells me that JG was Noserer is that Noserer joined the forum in October exactly at the time when JG's famous thread " I have decided to retire from MTF came out " . He couldn't have stood off from logging with both accounts and he paid the price for it.

Re: 2012 MTF Popularity Contest News Thread

apparently it was the one i guessed yesterday

http://www.menstennisforums.com/members/59699-rafaelnadalisgod.html

johnny says he's innocent, but i can tell where mods were coming from regarding this account (created 2 days before his retirement, starts posting soon after), especially, if accordingly to them, IP matches.

i don't know how about noserer

Hard to mistake two users using the same IP.. obviously why would he admit it even to someone close? Maybe it was a really embarrassing account or one that may get him ridiculed nonstop. I don't think that account was his though, the likes and posting styles of that account seem to not be consistent with him.

It could be this one also. In the banned members list is says Double accounts. So it could be that there was more than one .

But if Groove says he is innocent i believe him. Don't see where is the point in denying if he was already spotted. But again even if he made it this 3 months ban for this reason is a joke. Equal this with wishing death . Specially with good posters like Johnny, I mean he wasn't attacking anybody, wasn't writing offensive posts and the most important thing he contributed with great threads and good on-game opinions

Re: 2012 MTF Popularity Contest News Thread

Would really like to see what is the principle of finding out DA . If somebody is doing it he knows what he is doing, IP address has 10 numbers in it so even if you use the same PC for it after every router restart at least few last numbers are changing, it still would be showing the same area or town but it can't be 100% accurate if you restart router and clean the cookies before logging in. So only 100% accurate way of finding it is statical IP or logging in without restarting internet router . Pretty rookie mistake for somebody so passionante in it

I mean, I am often logging in from public library so there are good chances that some other MTF posters could use it because there is something like 10 PCs
