Hael, you have not been around for very long. There are always MUDs cheating to obtain a higher rank. Some other players here may remember one immortal contracting a specific player to flood one of the voting sites with static ip votes multiple(many) times a day. Which resulted in complaints that many of the other MUDs were cheating. Because with those few hundred votes the ranks were still difficult to ascend.

Beyond that, incentives for the players to vote such as something akin to whirligig rewards may not be exactly rule breaking to the vote system. A game change occurred, specific characters were not rewarded.

Provided, yes, players should be voting already.

Would be easier to reward the players if there was a steady increase of active people online. This would encourage voting, advertising, and recruiting.
