      I noticed that, too and thought it odd - I wanted to leave a comment to say that I actually bought one of the mentioned benches!

    I am so happy to be one of the nominees and can't believe that out of 2000+ articles mine was chosen!  Like the Wannabe faq say, I've been promoting like crazy since I found out but I keep getting calls and emails from friends and family saying that when they go to the link it doesn't give them a vote option, only shows the percentages....anyone know if there's a glitch or something?

      Congrats Lily Rose and I'm so happy you are promoting.  That's the Hubnuggets Spirit.  Go, go go! smile

      As far as I know, you can only vote once.  So if somebody has voted already they will see the poll results.  Are they using the same pc?

        That's the confusing part - no.  I realized that my IP address must be recognized, which is why my husband wasn't able to vote, but friends and family who are in other states are telling me they can't vote...

        Thanks for the congrats, BTW!

    Hmmm..I wonder why.  (scratch head)
    Can you send this link again? smile Or let them come into this forum thread and click the link here? (just being persistent) hehe

    If the above link does not work...
    HELP US PLEASE! lol

      I even walked my mom, over the phone, through it from the homepage instead of using the link I sent her (the one you have above) and she still wasn't able to vote.  I JUST got an email from a friend across the country who says she "thinks" she voted for me - she pressed on "up"?

      I don't want to obssess about this - what will be will be...I won't worry about it, I'm just thrilled to have even made the cut to be included!

    I voted - although it certainly wasn't an easy decision smile Love seeing all these new hubbers here writing great hubs!

    Lily Rose, to vote people have to click the little circle next to your hub and then go down to the 'Vote' button at the bottom of the poll in the HubNuggets hub.

    Hope that helps.  If not, maybe we need to send HPHQ a message.

      Lily Roseposted 7 years ago in reply to this

      That's the problem, apparently they are not getting the vote buttons - many have told me that when they go to the page they see the list of articles and the voting percentages with no ability to vote.  But it does seem like other people are voting, so I don't know what the problem could be.

      I'm not going to worry about it - if it's meant to be it will be...

        Victory will be sweeter if you'll just keep calm and let the voters do the voting hehehe, I won in one of the HubNugget voting two weeks ago but with influence of some friends...
        I could've still finish perhaps a strong second or third without them, and still feel very proud and happy, than winning at the expense of campaigning, I learned my lesson well...
        This is just a piece of advise Lily Rose... I just saw the voting trend and you have a very very strong chance of nailing one of the HubNugget Berth... Just hold your horses i know you can pull through ... Goodluck...

          Thank you, General, for putting me in my place.  Really, you're right, I shouldn't have said anything at all and just let it be.  They say to promote, promote, promote and I think I took it to heart a little too much!  I will go relax now and stop thinking about it...have a wonderful evening!

    Lily and General, it's okay to promote yourself crazy if you want to.  Many people blog it up heavily.  We haven't lost any wannabes to nervous exhaustion yet, although the General's suggestion of a relaxed campaign is a good one if it's driving you nuts.  We like to think that people get excited. smile

    Lily, if something isn't working with the poll, I'm really glad you said something.  If your friends are having a problem with it, others may be, as well.

    I'll send a message to the HubPages team.

    I was in the middle of typing a note to the HP team about the poll issue when I was struck with a brainwave.  Yes, it hurt.

    Lily, here's an idea.  Did your friends/family see the "Go back and vote" line of text below the results at the bottom of the poll capsule?  It just dawned on me that it may be some simple like that.

    1. Lily Rose profile image84
      Lily Roseposted 7 years ago in reply to this

      I'm not sure, but when I go to it I don't see anything that says "go back and vote" anywhere...

      1. Shirley Anderson profile image84
        Shirley Andersonposted 7 years ago in reply to this

        It only shows if a person has not voted yet but is seeing the results.  It shows up when "See results without voting" is clicked. That line disappears after a vote is cast.

    Hi Lily, did you figure it out already?  smile  I hope you did. As Shirley said, it's okay to promote and be excited about it.  I would be too you know! wink

    Hi Angel Shirley, the go back and vote button might just be the answer to Lily's question now that you mentioned it. You are one bright lady.  And I can understand why General is "smitten" by you.  big_smile

    Hi General, you are absolutely right about our dear Shirley! smile

    Awww General, you are a smooth talking bird.  Handsome, too!  Thanks for the compliments!  smile

    Angel Michelle!  Hope all is well with you.  smile  I hope that is the answer to Lily's dilemma.  Re me being a bright lady...it takes one to know one!  smile

    Wow, I'm almost embarassed to have gotten such a high percentage of the votes, but super excited, too - thank you to everyone who voted for my article.  It was from the heart and it means a lot to me that other people enjoyed it.

    BTW, "I'm Sorry" are the last two words of my hub's title - for some reason they got cut off in the above post.
