Ok, there are a lot of you here. Please go to powerliftingwatch.com and vote for WBB!

There is no way ProPower should be even close to us. Nice guys and a good site, but we have been around way longer and have a LOT more content.

Now, get it done! :)

I just looked at ProPowerInc's website and noticed something interesting, they have over 400 votes yet their forum only has 138 members - sounds like something shady is going on:

I've tried that a few times but it hasn't worked. Only the one time.

How do they have so many votes with so little members??? Rigged!

I think its sad you guys are saying its rigged or something. I have posted on my page on Facebook, Pro Powers Facebook page, and so have many of the members. I really dont care what the poll says.... Someone referred me to this thread and I was kinda thinking it was fun spirited until it was called into question that we would cheat somehow. Im sorry, but that just doesnt fly with me. I had actually rejoined this site and was planning on keeping a log here as well to build the community. If this is what its like... no. Ill go back to my board with 138 members and remain there. I know you guys wont miss my presence amongst the 71000 members you have, but maybe its the fact the 138 members that care enough to put it on their Facebook, vote from their phones, and suggest it to their friends.... Good luck on the rest of the poll it obviously means more to you all than it does us.

LOL, it was just a joke. I was curious as to how they have so many votes compared to the amount of members they have but after that fully detailed explanation, it makes sense.

Since I am the one who posted those figured I feel compelled to respond and clarify things a bit. With ProPower being a niche forum and only being in existence for a short time the 138 members are likely almost all active, whereas WBB has been around for over 10 years and so a number of the registered users are no longer active.

The only reason that it seemed unusual is that you would think that if someone voted for a forum as being the "top forum" that they would also be a member, so when the number of votes was almost three times the number of current members on the forum it seemed questionable. It would be similar to if there were an election for a town that has 30,000 residents and somehow 90,000 people voted - but if it became known that residents of other towns were voting or current residents identified ways to vote multiple times (different computers, phones, etc.) then it would make sense.

Great job on promoting your forum for this contest, it obviously shows that you have a strong/dedicated following.

Good explanation however the fact that 138 members have managed to get significantly more votes than a much bigger board that's been around a lot longer would seem to indicate the reverse. As you yourself said they are getting their friends (who may not even be members) to vote. Not a flame just pointing out something that you seem to have overlooked. But yes the calls of "cheating" are a bit OTT.

Thank you. Honestly thank you, I respect anyone who can have an adult discussion and I appreciate that especially on the internet where that is rare. I am not a hot tempered person, but I do like to protect what is mine... I reread my post and I regret that I posted it in a manner that could be taken as me being a brat like "if you dont let me play I'll take my ball and go home" by saying I would leave. I will not leave as I do like this board and I know Chris is a good guy. SOOOOO... on that note, I see you guys just protecting what is yours. Thank you for having me and I hope to be a strong contributor.

Well stated and I would give you high marks in the argumentation and debate field (I was on the debate team in college and used to love taking a point and making an even stronger counter point). I think what has worked so well for us is the fact we have a PRO Power Facebook page that has nearly 600 members and I know that they are dedicated to that page as most are on Facebook during the day and we do some updates of photos and what not there that dont make it to the website. Again, thank you for having me on the board.

Lol... It's not a big deal to me other than just my generally competitive nature.

Brandon, you know I like you and I wish your business well. Heck, I've liked the heck out of it on FB. I just hate to lose :). So, we must crush you!

Well I am certainly not going to back pedal. I think you are a complete ... Nah, just kidding. You made a compelling argument with the facebook stuff. I would never know it because I don't social network, but my training partner Rob "Big Tee" McCray is trying to get me to.He said there are lots of plers on there. I find keeping up on the forums hard enough. Plus I don't have a 3/4G phone. What can I say, I'm in my forties.

I honestly did not even know your site existed until I saw the poll. It's very cool of you guy to pass your stuff on. I will definitely stop in.
