    Hey guys, I joined this forum at the recommendation of a friend.


    I'm curious about being able to vote in an IP-based contest multiple times. Basically, I entered an annual photo contest months ago and was encouraged to get "family, room-mates, classmates" and .etc to vote daily. I did, for weeks, and afterwards I was told that votes from the same IP in 24 hours weren't counted- so basically the 4 a day from my house, 20 a day from my classmates at school, 10 a day from residence only got counted as 1 per day and... you get the picture- I kinda got screwed.


    So now I'm back in! They opened up another round and I am getting beat pretty bad at the moment. Normally I wouldn't have to result to these means but I was a bit disrespected by the administrators last time and would like to even things up.


    So basically I can only vote once per day from my IP, anything else isn't counted. So what I am wondering is- how can I change my IP, whether by using a proxy, VPN (I don't even know what these are too be honest) or whatever it takes, in order to vote from the same computer multiple times per day without them being the wiser.


    Ideally I would like to vote several hundred times from different IPs


    I am ambitious and want to win haha. Any information is appreciated guys.

    Oh cool I'll look into those. So it would let me switch between different IPs? And do you think the site wouldn't pick up this?

    Also for clarification it wouldn't let me quote you for some "new person rule" unless I took out the rest of your post so sorry if this msg is confusing

    HMA can be used to cycle IPs. It is possible you can get caught since those IPs tend to get a Ips abused

    Do most online voting contests have black listed IPs they can detect and discount?

    Apparently using a Tor browser allows me to change my ip multiple times. Would that work or be too obvious & blacklisted?

    Here at my school, turns out Ips change like 145.222.93.91 to 145.222.93.90 so there off by a single digit per computer. You think those would work for duping? I mean to what extent are votes disregarded? Even if 1 digit off it should still be separately counted I assume
