Description

Hello,



We are experiencing a really annoying vote glitch on your vote website, by this players are getting multiple votes on their name and win the topvoters by using this glitch.

How it works?
Easy, just open 2 devices and vote at the exact same time and both votes will count.

Maybe add a cooldown once someone votes or something or add a double check.

Please look into this because this is getting used a lot now on many servers.

I just patched the new issue introduced by yesterday's larger update. Thanks for reporting. Apologies for the trouble.

It is now impossible to vote for any server today

I've updated the backend system for voting specifically to address this issue. Let me know if you continue to see multiple votes from the same name. I'll leave this ticket open for a few more days but if I close it and you see it again, please PM me.

I had to reset all server votes for this update, so if someone voted early this morning, they will be able to vote again today. However, unless they are reading this, it's unlikely they'll know they can. Just bringing it up because you / others may see multiple votes today for that reason.

Awesome, thanks! That system does works, except if you do it at the exact same time, then it won't check probably and goes through.

Interesting - there is a cooldown and we have duplicate IP/name checking. I'll mark this one down for Cyprezz since he was poking around in that system earlier.
