143 Votes already at FFC3!!????

Gautam B K has 143 votes and 36 references!!!

When we saw his application yesterday, we were compelled to check if it was all clean. After we checked.... Guess what the verdict was?

I'm leaving this space blank to see what you guys have to say about the votes. Tell me if u think they are all true or not? I will update the blog with the verdict in the evening today. :) want to know what you all think.. :)

--------- UPDATED POST ----------------
So, I left the verdict to you to guess, and like I expected very few of you could guess what the truth was. Let me rewind and go into flashback before I explain this story.

Moderator comes to work in the morning and the first thing she gets going on, is approving apps on ffc3 and rejecting the not so good ones. She claims that one of the first apps she approved was Gautam's which raised the bar at her moderation. Since she liked the app that much, she had to obviously show it off to the community managers (this was the same day but afternoon). This was when i noticed and went "whoa!! This app just got approved this morning and it already has so many votes????!!!! :gulp: Lets verify!! "

We checked the page, checked for bugs, checked the vote system and to everyone's astonishment, we verified to find that EVERY SINGLE VOTE was real. Gautam was clean. which meant that he worked his way to the number of votes that he had and had actually got that many of his friends to sign up and vote for him!!!!

So Everybody, Gautam is clean!!! and his is an example of a very hard worked on FFC3 App!!! We're super proud of Gautam. You obviously really worked towards your app, floored the moderator, stunned the community managers, freaked the tech team (to wonder if you were clean, and if they were in trouble), scared the rest of the fans out of their comfort zones - pushing them now to work extra hard on their apps.

Gautam sure has raised the bar!! This FFC3 has some record setter!! *applause for Gautam*

Every one, lets welcome the newest member at RCB who came in and sure made a grand entry. Some celeb you are! *In the comments section everyone* - lets show him what the RCB family really is like.

*Disclaimer: this post was written out purely for entertainment purposes, mainly with a view to show the rest of the fans, the competition they are facing and not with any intention of bringing down the spirits of a very enthusiastic fan.*

@ radiosandeep
Lol! I notice that now =)
A lot of them are my chat pals :)

The exclamatory marks? :) Guess they were excited when they read I'd applied for a job in SA =D
The smileys? Its either :) or =) .. The second one looks cuter on gtalk ;) my fav chat client. :)

And as for the short comments. It was haggling enough to convince them to vote. some of them who did do it wholeheartedly took their time to write it out. :)

and the overall issue about the smileys?

You know "A smile is infectious" :D

@ all
I apologise if I have caused any bad feelings. :) I will be regular here I promise you that =)

Adding to Point 2 in my previous comment, i have just stumbled upon another observation. Gautam in fact has the habit of including many smileys in his writing, as can be seen in his comments below.
And in reference to point 4, i once again see that it is he who has used the =) format of the smiley, whereas none of the others havent....

This is not to rake up any new controversy or doubt anyone's integrity, but on going through Gautam's references on http://www.royalchallengers.com/cricket-online-contests/ffc3/gautam-krishnamurthy, i find certain interesting patterns:
1) Many (or most) of the refs are short one-liners not reflecting a real reference, suggestive of them being written in haste.
2) Most refs end with a smiley. How come a randomly chosen sample of people all have the same style of writing?
3) Almost every ref has exclamation marks. Once again, same doubt as above.
4) In many refs, the smileys are in the form of =) instead of the usual :) or :-). I would think that the former is not so common..

Btw, this comment is purely for entertainment purposes only and is not intended to fuel the controversy further :-)

I really need to stop posting from the moderator account...! Sorry about that - nidhi@rcb

Hmm. Okay guys, I feel like the comments are going no where. If this was a discussion forum thread, I would close it. OH hey - I can close commenting on this post.... I think everyone has made their point, let's end this discussion with some amount of humility now eh?

Remember: the main reason we have the audition in Bangalore is to gauge whether or now we can work with the finalist in a high-pressure situation.

@ Docsom

Mate regards to your good work ( application only ), but am sure there is a tinge of remorse for reacting to an untrue situation ( according to you ), all of us have to follow the Comm Managers ( Ground Rule ) and should have waited for the verdict. Every comment given to you would have been sealed off with elegance.

I don't see how witholding my reactions would have helped :)
There were undue criticisms spoken without a careful glance at the application.

I just sprang in to protect my intellectual property :)

Its natural. otherwise the world wouldn't have had copyrights =)
