What constitutes a "legit entry" - when in the next paragraph it appears you solicit non-legit entries?

Good question. We have this stated on the poll:

Duplicate teams and copied entries will result in your poll being disqualified from voting and not counting toward the donation. Make your own educated decisions. You must vote for at least 15 teams.

Example: You can only vote for FRC3487 once in the poll. By coincidence somebody just put their team number in for every entry which results in their entry being deleted when we run it through our calculator.

I also changed legit to qualified.

Okay, I'll bite.

Team 4159 CardinalBotics is really hoping to get mentioned on the show - vote for us and we'll put some swag up for giveaways! (Assuming we make it into the top 25...)

Re: FRCTop25 Popularity Poll for Charity! Vote, Troll & Win!

I think we should make the announcers really work at this. The rule is that you cannot use team numbers to reference teams, you must only use their complete nicknames, and I advocate for these teams:

Code:
number	placing	nickname
5459	1	Ipswich TIGERS (Technologically Inclined Group of Engineering Robotics Students)
6301	2	Nerointellect-sim Engineering & Robot Design Soiree   N.E.R.D.S.
1847	3	W.R.A.T.H (Wyandotte Robotics and Technology Hackers)
1726	T4	N.E.R.D.S. (Nifty Engineering Robotics Design Squad)
5900	T4	Career Blazer Robotics Team - The Fighting Mongooses
3130	6	The East Ridge Robotic Ominous RaptorS - the ERRORS
2883	T7	F.R.E.D (Fighting Rednecks Engineering and Design)
4469	T7	R.A.I.D. (Raider Artificial Intelligence DIvision)
5450	T9	St. Helens Robotics and Engineering Club (SHREC)
6617	T9	Bellinghan High School Black Hawks Robotics Club
6387	11	Discobots Canada (Brampton Robotics Education)
3136	T12	Official Robot Constructors of America (ORCA)
6451	T12	Whiteland Community High School Robotics Team
6703	14	Prince George Secondary School Robotics Club
1280	T15	Ragin' C- Biscuits of San Ramon Valley High
3160	T15	FROG:  FIRST Robotics Organization of Grove
6183	T15	RIGS - Robotics Inspired Greenland Students
2181	T18	G.E.A.R.s (Great Engineers Awesome Robots)
4356	T18	CIA Robotics Presents - BIG Furious George
6062	T18	WHAM (Willyama High Advanced Mechatronics)
3930	T21	SMART  Spruce Mountain Area Robotics Team
6657	T21	University Prep High School Robotics Team
1322	T23	Genesee Robotics Area Youth Team (GRAYT)
4119	T23	AERO (Avon Eagles Robotics Organization)
6070	T23	Pratt & Whitney Canada : Gryphon Machine
6688	T23	West Valley Middle College Robotics Team
Okay, I know I put 6301 down as second, but they probably have my favorite name on this list. I just love the idea of a robotics team being described as a soiree, and not just any soiree, but a Nerointellect-sim Engineering & Robot Design Soiree.

Re: FRCTop25 Popularity Poll for Charity! Vote, Troll & Win!

You asked for trolling... you got it.

It's more fun when you realize the the survey is set up for numbers only and some teams have in fact had more than one number in their history, legitly.
