Is there somewhere that will keep voting for a certain person or do we have to do it by hand everytime?

Well, I'm sure there are ways out there to cheat, but HT isn't endorsing that. It looks like you can click as many times as you want, but once your IP address logs its 6 votes, the page stops loading them.

Oh poop. I just started voting with reckless abandon. I'm sure my six were used mostly on Kaysar, which I didn't mean to do.

At least I can vote six more times at home!

Not only can I vote from home and work, but there are several people working in my office who leave their computers on when they go to lunch. Looks like I'll be having hamster for lunch today.

What do I need to do, so that when I click on an already visited topic, it takes me to the first post I didn't see on my previous visit, and not the first post of the thread? Thanks.

this is an AIM question- and I ma sure it's a really obvious one. What does it mean te the AIM guy is flashing an envelope? does htat mean I have mail or an IM? If mail, do I really have to go through the whole sign up thing again to get it?

I think it means that the email address associated with your AIM account has mail. I think you can turn off that flashing envelope thingy under Preferences somewhere.

Sweet, I believe I found the right thread to post my question. The show begins on July 5. When do the hamsters move into the house? When do the feeds go live?

I'm not sure exactly when they move in. They may be there already, but I think it's generally about 4 days before the premiere.
The live feeds shouldn't begin until after the first show finishes airing on the West Coast. Sometimes the feeds will "accidentally" flash a shot or two of the hamsters before that time, and sometimes you can hear stuff~ I'm guessing it's just the production crew doing tests and getting things ready to go.

You can see what's currently on the quad feed right now by looking at my screencap in the test thread. Otherwise not much will be happening until Thursday night.

The hamsters are already in the house and have been since about mid-week; they always go in before the names are released and the promos using clips of them begin. The Early Show on Thursday revealed the BB8 houseguests so they probably went in just before that.
