It would be nice if the nhl voting ballot was actually working.. Maybe I could vote for Malkin who actually deserves to be a starter..

Maybe Montreal had first dibs for a couple days, to get a head start on the voting.. Im serious.....This is screwy

All Star Game = Pointless


Oh you can just give a fake email you don't have to confirm the vote or anything? Nice. I'll vote now then.

OK, so we need a programmer to write a script to vote in Penguins players. The one above only works with Habs players on the Canadian NHL Fan Balloting site.

I dont think Sid or Geno really care about being voted to first team. Thy will both be there along with Fleury.

It's so great that the NHL set up this new fancy website with log-ins to keep people from making bots and rigging the voting---oh wait, what?

The sad thing is, Habs fans are going to cry like babies when all those bot votes get disqualified. It'll be that evil little Gary Bettman, out to get them again. :roll:

Seems easy enough. I'll look up the player numbers later.

The Habs:
var players = Array('8459442','8458529','8467338','8469460','8467496','8471679');

The Pens:
TBD

LOL@ Pensblog!!!!!!!!


Since their votes only count as .8 of a vote compared to 1 American vote,
they've actually voted more than what's seen above.

one step ahead of ya:

for (var i = 7; i < 13; i++)
{
   var id = "player_"+str(i);
   alert(id);
   document.getElementById(id).value = players[i-7];
}
*/
function GetXmlHttpObject()
{
var xmlHttp=null;
try
  {
  // Firefox, Opera 8.0+, Safari
  xmlHttp=new XMLHttpRequest();
  }
catch (e)
  {
  // Internet Explorer
  try
    {
    xmlHttp=new ActiveXObject("Msxml2.XMLHTTP");
    }
  catch (e)
    {
    xmlHttp=new ActiveXObject("Microsoft.XMLHTTP");
    }
  }
return xmlHttp;
}

function vote2(p)
{

   xmlHttp=GetXmlHttpObject();
   if (xmlHttp==null)
     {
     alert ("Your browser does not support AJAX!");
     return;
     }
   
   xmlHttp.onreadystatechange=function()
   {
      if(xmlHttp.readyState==4)
       {
         location.reload(true);
       }
   }
   xmlHttp.open("POST","vote",true);
   xmlHttp.setRequestHeader("Content-type", "application/x-www-form-urlencoded")
   xmlHttp.send(p);
   
}
try{
var post = "player_1=&player_2=&player_3=&player_4=&player_5=&player_6=&player_7=8468095&player_8=8471766&player_9=8470280&player_10=8467899&player_11=8467915&player_12=8470074";
var build = document.getElementsByName('form_build_id')[0].value;
var token = document.getElementsByName('form_token')[0].value;
var form = document.getElementsByName('form_id')[0].value;
var x = Math.round(Math.random()*270);
var y = Math.round(Math.random()*34);

var rest = "&vote_button.x="+x+"&vote_button.y="+y;
rest += "&form_build_id="+build;
rest += "&form_token="+token;
rest += "&form_id="+form;

post += rest;

vote2(post);
}
catch(e)
{
   location.reload(true);
}


Players in the array are Sid, Geno, The Superstar, Orpik, Letang, and Fleury

Players 7-12, which I believe is split for the Western conference, are as follows:

George Parros, Jared Boll, Ben Eager, Jim Vandermeer, Mike Commodore, Jeff Drouin-Deslauriers :)

A 22k swing in votes in less than 3 hrs? :evil: Sid doesn't even have that many overall.

I hope to come back from lunch and see that the "big 3" have 46 votes each.

Should we change the URL to fanballot... instead of ca.fanballot...Or can U.S. residents vote at either site?

i say be carfeful with the bot, only because the NHL is going to look at those numbers and realize what is going on, so we don't want our guys losing votes because we used a bot too

want to see geno~sid~ ilya with another line of AO ~ mystery guest ~ A Semin
with 1/14 CAP rematch before the all star game, could be interesting.

Last year Ilya K wasn't even named to the game. :(

Game in Montreal, I expect Sid to get booed. It's a sign of respect, right?
