if you're serious you should realyl describe what you mean by that. It takes no longer to sign up there than any other forum. Voting without taking a larger part in the LQ community doesn't seem that logical to me. The polls done here, even for annual awards, are for members who are already taking a part, not to be signed up for in their own right.

It realy seems to me that you must be joking..........when I signed up it was as fast as could be expected, I was a member in a short period of time able to post etc. etc. Your posting, which means that you are a member.

You've been registered nearly a year now and only 3 posts, I think there is a minimal amount of posts required before you can vote, you'll need to be a little more active on the forums to be given the privilege of voting.

Just for completeness and future reference, you must have a postcount of 1 or higher to be able to vote in the annual Member's Choice Awards.
