We might actually have a discussion on whether or not, in 2015, a vote on a top's mud site is visible at all. Individuals from every MUD game on the site are the visitors of the site. Have had a few examples of newbies going through the opening phases of playing before suggesting trying out their MUD.
Might suggest if you're interested in increasing visibility then you should write reviews for the game to submit to content sites (like Top Mud Connect and the Mud Connector). The recent narratives presented there are not very good for advertising.
