How To Vote on YapStar Pet Contest

Voting is Easy and Quick on

We make it really easy to get votes for your pet! Within minutes of entering your pet on YapStar, we will email you an electronic Voting Postcard featuring your pet's photo. To get votes for your pet, forward the postcard via email to your friends and family members (you can also input your friend's email addresses online and we will send them a Voting Postcard). [Voting will begin on September 20, 2009]
After your friends open the postcard, they can then vote for your pet by clicking on the "Vote For Me" button on the postcard and will be forwarded to your pet's voting page. All they need to do is enter their email address and click vote*. One email will be sent to your friends asking them to click on a link to verify their email address. This is done to ensure the integrity of the voting process. To garner more votes encourage your friends and family to forward the postcard on.
To vote for your own pet you will also need to go through the above process. Remember to vote for your own pet daily!
Your pet can receive one vote per person per day so encourage your friends and family to come back often. Repeat votes daily from the same email address will not be accepted by our website. Similarly, repeat votes from different email addresses owned by the same person are not allowed. No proxy voting is allowed [you cannot use your friends email addresses to vote]
* We do not store these email addresses or send contest updates to your friends unless they request us to. Additionally they are never rented, shared or sold to anyone.
