    wow

    They will have some 'splainin' to do next week.
    Don't say 5 per phone, then assume you know how many people will be calling per time zone... that makes no sense.

    I didn't hear them say that they'd cut it off after 1 million per time zone, that is worse than lame...it cut a lot of people out of the process, so who's to know that those who are kept really are the favorites? Maybe it's a phone company thing... if they are sponsoring the toll free #...

    After one million votes?? Didn't hear them say that but it's dumb. Hell, I never got to vote at all.

    Well, they had better improve this problem ASAP. If somebody I really like leaves (i.e. Harlemm or Brandon), then I will be mad. They better not have this problem next week! I got my votes in though, at least. Now we know to start voting ASAP after the show ends...

    I think this means the show is more popular than they expected, so that's probably a good sign. I just hope they correct this problem...

    From NBC.com: There IS a vote maximum

    From NBC.com:
    Fame Voting FAQs

    How do I know my vote has been placed?

    Voting for your favorite "Fame" contestant begins at the end of the show. Remember voting is open for only two-hours, and will be closed earlier if the maximum number of votes for the particular time zone has been reached. If you place your vote during the two-hour window in the appropriate time zone applicable to the phone number from which you are calling, you will hear a pre-recorded message from your chosen contestant, thanking you for your vote and confirming the name of the contestant for whom you have voted.

    If you place a call outside the voting window, you will either hear a fast busy signal or a pre-recorded message to that effect, and your vote will NOT count. If you place a call, but we have reached our call-in maximum for your particular time zone, you will hear a pre-recorded message to that effect, and your call will NOT count as a vote. Finally, if you place more than five calls from one particular telephone number, you will hear a pre-recorded message stating that you have reached your call-in limit for that particular telephone number, and your call will NOT count as a vote. The producer reserves the right to change the limit on the number of calls that may be made from each originating telephone number in the producer's sole discretion. Viewers will be notified of any such change.

    Once the voting window has closed, no more votes will be accepted and you will hear a fast busy signal.
    That really sucks. I don't really understand why they would have a time zone maximum.

    Yay, I'm so happy that NBC has the foresight to fix the problems in AI. 5 calls per phone line, time zone maximums, etc. No one needs to vote for 2 hours solid, for anything.
