This is wonderful news! and of course we should all be voting, but there seem to be some misunderstanding about the amount times you can vote... you are only allowed to vote once! all other votes you do (unless you cheat, but I assume we are not cheaters here) will be filtered out afterwards.
Having said that... get voting all who haven't done that yet, this is a great opportunity for Andre!!!

For Hetty Garlick who doesn't believe the multiple votes are filtered out: I asked them, this was the answer :)

(also, it is logival since there are prizes involved here.)
Thanks Hetty, for your feedback!

I got curious about the voting story and I checked some things out. This is what it says on the website for the Brit Awards, which are organised by the same radio station as the classic brits:

Restrictions

You are allowed one vote per award category. Any additional votes you make in each award category will be discounted.

Votes received outside the specified opening and closing times for each vote will not be counted. Voting times are liable to change and BAL may suspend, withdraw or re-set voting at its sole discretion at any time and will post any updates on
www.brits.co.uk
. BAL reserves the right to discount votes if it has reasonable grounds to suspect that fraudulent voting has occurred (including certain bulk voting).

It seems logical that they would use the same rules for the classic brits, as the idea and the set up of the competitions are the same. I asked them about the voting too and will post my answer when I get it.


Regards,
Peter Sweetey

Peter ... I don't know why your first post wasn't here, but it was the middle of the night here and both John and I would be sleeping. We are the only two who can delete anything on the Parlor and obviously it wasn't us.

For some reason, the Parlor must not have registered it. :/

It's okay :-)
Still waiting for an answer, keep voting in the mean time, if it turns out that multiple votes ARE allowed, we're in the clear!

Hmmm.... starting to look like we are out of luck, I am afraid.

See here: http://www.classicfm.com/about-classic-fm/competition-terms-conditions/

BUT as long as I do not have a definitive answer I shall not let this rest LOL!
