    Great job Angels! Well - great job to THOSE DEDICATED FEW that voted over & over & over again for our babe. Trey WON by almost 800 votes on Singersroom 30 under 30 poll.

    Now here comes the fussing. There is no reason why Trey won by only 800 votes. As a fan of both Trey and Lloyd, I know, just like you know that Lloyd does not have the amount of fans that Trey does. Lloyd has had poor management that kept him underrated. Nevertheless, this is not about Lloyd. Trey should have won by a landslide, but it really wasn't. Lloyd passed Trey many times.

    For the life of me I cannot understand why some fans sit back and say how wonderful Trey is but when it's time to put your hand where your mouth is, you're too lazy to pick up the phone to request a record, too lazy to vote for him, too lazy to support Angels With Heart...basically too lazy to do anything that does not directly benefit YOU. Are you in this ONLY to see what you can reap?

    I know I'm a fan that wants Trey to succeed in every avenue that he pursues. Giving of your money (buying his merchandise, albums, and concert tickets) is wonderful, but please don't forget the importance of giving of your time. Request his records, vote for his singles on 106 and Park, and vote when he is in any type of competition. Let's show him that we truly love him and support him.

    Thank you!

@Leigh: You are right the main thing is he won, but the sad thing is he almost didn't.

I'm sorry but I still find it disturbing that he only won by 800 votes.

LOL @ this blog & Tricia it looks like we agree on something. I do agree Trey should have gotten more votes but I think people do feel they're supporting him by going to concerts & voting on BET but again people focus on other things besides talent with Trey. But I definitely voted for him and never voted for anyone else! But I focus on the fact that he won verses the votes because those numbers definitely doesn't show his fan base just look at the number of angels we have on board and I definitely got the email to vote but I happy when he accomplishes anything, even the small things!

I meant to say DMing All followers.

@Cuttigurl Jesus do you make a lot of assumptions. I have been on twitter (at least my alias) since 9/2010. I even have Twitter for Dummies. It says Twitter is designed so you can comfortable follow about 40 people. My copy is old and does not tell you about the new features; e.g., DMing I only said I don't know much because I wanted pity and help. You know you were trying to be a smart aleck--Making like Mrs Neverson's husband was sending you secret messages. And I am not going to follow 200 or more Angels to find out how Twitter performs.

@JIMS You seem to know about pictures. I am trying to get the 11-1-11 picture up. I copied the logo into windows picture gallery , but a message said I need a JPEG or some other type of file. The 11-1-11 file I have is a Bitmap image I copied from the board. It won't work. Do you all know where I can get a working file of 11-1-11 to upload. I wonder if i can convert a Bitmap to a JPEG file. I already know how to get a real photos up. You all saw the big monkey remember so don't start nothing @CuttiGurl609.

Hi @Mrs Songz /Neverson. If it's alright with you, your husband will be on my profile after 11-1-11. You better watch @CuttiGurl609 she is sneaking around with Mr. Neverson and that combination number 609 signifies something, but I'm not sure what it is, but I'll let you know.

Hey Ms!! I'm good. Weekend is laid back so far. How are things with you?

Yeah I switched my pic to a Trey pic. :)

JesusIsMySavior's picture

Right! Sometimes you don't always know you have messages unless you press the message tab or if you get text alerts telling you got a a dm.

It shouldn't be too hard to navigate through you messages unless you are following a lot of chatty people. :)

It would be better if Trey promoted something. You are right not everyone is on twitter often.

Yeah a lot of people do come to this site, but not enough to make an impact.

Numba1Hon's picture

@JIMS

1. Okay the timeline is more effective because people might not see the msg. Right?

2. When you have a lot of followers, is it easy to navigate through the mgs. or is it time consuming? I want to determine if I should follow more people w/o too much trouble.

I guess the only real effective way to promote something is to get Trey to tweet. But then you don't know how many followers are really following regularly or if at all.

When you look at some of the posts, a lot of members do come to this site. They were probably voting too, but they mainly stay on twitter and don't post here I guess.

JesusIsMySavior's picture

@Numba1Hon: No I wasn't aware that you could do that.

I agree with Cuttigurl609. I don't think being selective about who you tell about the contest helps.

These are the instructions for sending direct messages to all of your followers at once. You can send 250 or less messages a day until all of your followers receive the message. I am sure this might be useful to the fanclub in some cases.

2
Open Tweetadder and add your Twitter account.

3
Double click on your Twitter account to open the management window.

4
Click on the messages tab.

5
In the messages to send text box enter the message you want to send in less than 140 characters (including the link). Click Add.

6

Sit back and relax, Tweetadder will send your Direct Message to all your followers at a rate of 250 (or less) per day until they have all received your message

@JIMS I found the instructions on how to send a direct message to all followers at once. I read you could do this, but I had a feeling you could not do it all at once if you have a large numbers of followers like Trey. I wanted to know if anybody knew about it.

@Cuttigurl609
Yeah. Right. I thought the words "ALL followers" and "that feature is available" in one sentence was helpful but I guess not. The best way to answer a question, is not to make any assumptions about what knowledge a person has and just answer the question.

JesusIsMySavior's picture

In order for Trey to DM everyone he follows he would have to do individual messages I doubt if he has the patience for that.

DMs appear in the message link at the top of the page. I don't think DMs is the most effective way of getting the word out about a contests. I think posting the message to your TL is best.

Numba1Hon's picture

@Cuttigurl609 I know what DM's are because I looked it up. But there is an ALL followers feature and I am trying to find out if anybody is using it for contests like this including Trey. And if you get one, where does it appear on your twitter pages. I asked specific questions because I want to see if there is a way the Angels get contact each other and be effective. If Trey sent out a private message to all his followers and it was meant to be private, then I don't need to know, but I would like to know if this feature works and is anybody using it.

Numba1Hon's picture

I am hardly on Twitter so I don't have much experience with it.

Did anyone try sending DM's to ALL followers? I read this feature is available.

Did Trey send out any ALL followers DM's about the Singersroom poll?

Where do DM's appear on twitter? Are they on your timeline or in a separate area?

Do you all think DM's are effective in getting fans to vote?

Numba1Hon's picture

@ JIMS Thank for the figures. I thought it was less than a 100 point difference.

I voted a lot for Trey songz and I do as much as I can because I want to see him prosper as much as he can. I was convincing non members to vote as well. He is my favorite singer.

JesusIsMySavior's picture

At the end of the poll Trey had almost 8800 or 8900 votes and once things were finalized he had 7400. So he lost about 1400-1500 votes. I don’t recall Lloyd’s numbers he had about 200 or less than Trey and dropped down to 6600. Yeah that is a big difference.

JesusIsMySavior's picture

@TEE: Had the proxy votes been counted Trey wouldn’t have won by much. When that poll closed Trey was only up by a little bit. It is obvious some people were cheating. The other guys in the poll numbers pretty much stayed the same after the poll. It was stated that there is close to 8000 Angels I’m not definite about that number but regardless you have a couple 1000 Angels. If each of them voted each day or as often as possible it would have been a wrap. In addition to the Angels you have his other fans. I wouldn’t be surprised if most of the votes came from non-Angels.

@Tricia AKA @GimmeUnusual: Yes you need to be invited to see Lloyd. You came close in N.O. though.

I hope they do their job too. Next year if this competition is around we need to be reaching out to fans in general not just Angels.

Another thing that bothered me when people were attacking #TeamLloyd. Um they weren’t the problem they were doing what they were suppose to. We were the problem. Don’t hate on another team for having the determination to keep their favorite singer on top.

Numba1Hon's picture

@Tee The only way an artist could get more votes is if more fans participated in the poll or do you think the proxy server votes blocked other voters?

I think there was cheating on both sides. I know there were attempts and probably successes because I was searching twitter and print screening and taking evidence in case anybody wanted to start some sh*t. It was getting heated. You may not have felt the stress and the desire to cheat, but I am going to be honest. When I saw LLoyd breezing past Trey, all ethical thoughts went out the window. I never before knew I had a criminal mind. But Singersroom recognized my computers. and would not let me use another computer or share on a single one. When I called AOL to set up more accounts, they told me to call back during business hours. (In hindsight, that wouldn'f have worked anyway.) On top of that, 2X my best computer was attacked by the worst malware (Rootkit) you can get most likely on Media Takeout while I was there watching Trey with a gorgeous smile hugging Amber Rose in Ghana. But I got that sh*t off my computer in a hurry by purchasing Verizon premium support and got rid of McAfee and purchased Kaspersky Internet Security 2012. When I called up friends that I know that like Trey, most were not home, then the one I reached had a real slow computer that would not load the sites. Then I was too embarrassed to call some relatives because I was afraid the were going to catch some of Trey's lyrics. In the middle of this, I lost my wings and had to figure out how to get them back. It was stressful. Never again.

I don't think Trey lost many (if any) votes after the voting was over, but I think LLoyd did because I know he was closer to Trey than he is now because my azz was sweating. I was keeping count, but I quess in the chaos I threw out the paperwork. Does anybody know what the last figures were at 11:59 p.m.?

I LOVE THIS POST SIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Tricia AKA @GimmeUnusual's picture

I need to be invited to Lloyd's M&G. I really do! I know I'm supposed to say I want to meet Trey but I've met him a few times already. I need to meet Lloyd now.

Singersroom took over my life too. I was constantly checking the count. I'm so glad it's over but I hope next competition the Angels do what they are supposed to do.

TEETIMME's picture

He won by only 800 votes bc of the proxy votes, which werent counted! Perhaps if some ppl hadnt cheated, which there was no need to cheat, I think he cudda won by many many more votes. But like u said, the "part-time" angels..why didnt they vote???

JesusIsMySavior's picture

Yeah it might be.

Numba1Hon's picture

How they select might be on the website.

Numba1Hon's picture

@Cuttigurl609 I saw those votes too. I wonder what happened. I THINK Lloyd was about 69 votes away from Trey at the deadline. It was real close.

JesusIsMySavior's picture

You are right about never leave the site. LOL I think I woke up each day with singersroom on my mind. I was so preoccupied with voting for Trey I didn't take the time to listen to the other artists. I need to go back and check some of the other guys out.

I wonder how they are going to determine who gets invites to go to the meet and greets?

Numba1Hon's picture

After they said we could share our computer and then we couldn't, I said this is a bogus contest. I voted for one other artist once and said the hell with it. I was even afraid to go into their menu to hear the other music for fear I might hit the wrong button.

JesusIsMySavior's picture

When they do the meet and greet cuttigurl609, you and me need an invite. LOL
