People's Choice Award clarification

Hello everyone!

It is great that many of you have uploaded your project videos to participate in the People's Choice Award.

We want to clarify that NO CHEATING WILL BE TOLERATED (this means NO bots, paid votes, messing up with the cookies, etc.), each video is being monitored and will have to comply with all the challenge's rules stated at our Facebook page in order to win.

If anormalities are observed once more, the organizing committee will take the action of removing the People's Choice Award.

Lets all play fair and have fun! Have a great time hacking!
