    Voting Code Lag

    Hey CNet!

    Have you ever voted here on CNet but had to wait a long time to get your code? I have this happen to me all the time and was wondering if anyone else had experienced it.

    Thanks for reading!

    Hey Anna,

    That also happens to me a lot and it's very annoying because I would have to wait a long time to receive the code and sometimes get tired leaving me with no option but to vote later.

    I think Cnet should work on fixing this issue because voting is extremely important in this site and having to wait a long time can really make someone say that they will vote later because of the long wait but forget to.


    Thanks for the forum and have a great day!

    Aloha Anna,

    This does happen to my quite often. Usually by the time I get the code it expires and I have to do it all offer again. When it happens now I usually just come back to vote later. Hope they figure out what's causing that issue and have it fixed.

    Thanks for the post,

    Mahalo,

    Re: Voting Code Lag

    Aloha Anna,

    I am actually experiencing this problem right now. I requested a code at least 15 minutes ago and still have not received it. I am actually kind of curious as to how long it will take for it to come through. Hopefully soon... I wish it was an easier process, although I know that the codes to cell phones are supposed to prevent against voter fraud and therefore be a good thing.

    I still love Cnet!

    Mahalo,

    Hi Anna,

    I requested codes over 30 minutes ago that just came through. Then they don't work. So, I just requested another that came through right away. Hopefully it works! It's really annoying.

    Re: Voting Code Lag

    Hey Anna,

    I have had this happen to me often, it actually happened to me yesterday. Sometimes it will take so long, I have to request another one.

    I thought it was just my phone though because I have my online only bank (along with PayPal) set to send me a code to login and it will lag at times too. At least now I know it's not just me.

    It can be annoying at times since I can't always wait to enter my code.


    Hope you had a great day today!
