TRL Voting Tips:
I. PHONE TIPS (1-800-DIAL-MTV)
#1 - Phone votes count more than online votes (source: RollingStone), so try to vote on the phone during the specified times, and vote online any other time.
Each phone request is worth 50 online votes, this makes a huge difference in video totals and is the reason why videos do so well or so horrible. If you have the means of calling in, it is highly recommended that you do so.
#2 - Phone votes only count during a specific timeframe, depending on your time zone:
#3 - The system is automated. It rings once, and then Carson comes on the line welcoming you to Total Request Live.
Press 1 to vote for
your favorite artist
He then tells you to press the first three letters, corresponding to the numbers on your phone, of the artist or video of your choice (whichever category you chose).
After a moment, Carson
will say "Thank you for voting for..."
II. ONLINE VOTING TIPS
*vote online here: http://www.mtv.com/onair/trl/votevideo.jhtml
1. Supposedly, you
are supposed to be able to vote as much as you
want using the online form 24 hours a day....however,
we've been told that the MTV/TRL website places
cookies on your computer that will only count
"so many" of your votes. For this reason,
we recommend online voting about 20 times and
then deleting the cookies from your hard drive
2. Here's two different ways to delete cookies from your computer.
3. Vote! Repeat from the top, deleting cookies and reopening browser windows, again. This way, each time you vote it's like the first time you voted. (Not sure if this is actually necessary, but some say that MTV does track how many times you vote and doesn't count a certain number of multiple votes.)
Last Friday, she debut her music video at #9.
KEEP VOTING AND MAKE HER #1!!!
