Hey Everyone ! Last year I entered the competition for Miss Diving Specials and I tried so hard to win but came in 2nd place so this year Im having another go! Please help send Little Mermaid Melanie to the Maldives on the trip of a lifetime by voting and sharing with your friends ! https://premium.easypromosapp.com/voteme/215294/622189367

I worked my fins off last year trying to win and I'm prepared to do it again ! Please help by voting and sharing and I promise if I win I will make a new special silicone tail to debut and will track the process here on mernetwork with lots of pics/vids ! I hope you guys can help me out !

Melanie xx

Thanks uwmerman and Kait ! :D Im gonna keep working on it ! Im closing in on the next few spots in the competition now so who knows in the next 2 weeks I might just pull it off ! :D

02-03-2016, 08:28 PM
Make sure you let us know how you go!

I totally dont mind voting for you again but these guys are super bad for spamming. I suggest once people start voting, put them on your direct to spam list. lol even having them on there I get the odd spam from them that gets through thanks to voting last year.

Thanks Kait I will keep you guys updated ! Im in 4th place right now and there aren't many votes separating me from the next few positions so I'm really pushing hard for it this year ! Ah sorry your getting spam from it Raina ! I guess I never saw it as spam because I'm quite keen to hear about the offers on dive holidays but I can see how some folk wouldnt want that ! the goal of the competition for them is obviously to reach out to a wider audience and get us to do the promoting of their company, I don't mind since the prize is so awesome, but damn its hard work these social media contests are pretty draining !

Now that Ive moved home I've developed a whole new appreciation for cold water mers ! I think its going to take me quite a while to adapt to the temperatures here ! Im so desperate for my tropical warm water back haha

It ends on the 21st Feb and I'm steadily keeping a 200 vote lead but the competition is pushing pretty hard to catch up ! Im putting all my time into this right now! wish it was over tomorrow lol

02-10-2016, 05:38 PM
OOOO 10 more days, good luck love :)

02-10-2016, 05:50 PM
I assume I only get to vote once, right?

Mermaid Melanie

Thanks guys ! yes you can only vote once ! Ive been feeling so demoralised with it this evening after discovering the girl that I've been trying to keep ahead of has been cheating and is almost knocking me into 2nd place ! i found loads of fake profiles had voted for her as if she's bought votes off a click farm or something ? I sent a message to the organiser cause I'm not going to give in to someone cheating ! I grabbed screen shots of it and theres actually so many fake profiles on her vote list I can't imagine how many of them are even real ! If you guys have time to share with your fiends please do, I need all the help I can get at the moment ! :hail:

02-11-2016, 07:28 PM
I don't have a lot of followers, but I'll share your post on my page! Fins crossed it helps!

02-11-2016, 07:56 PM
Thanks so much Calizaire ! That would be a great help ! I'm only 100 votes ahead but this girl has gotten over 240 votes in only a few hours so if it continues like this I don't think I will be in 1st place much longer !

That's a shame that someone has to cheat to win. Good for you Melanie for reporting it. I hope you'll let us all know the final results. :) you've got lots of support.

Hey guys ! So I was on having a look at the voting today and then all of a sudden the girl in 2nd who had been cheating had disappeared ! Turns out the comp organiser had confronted her about it asking for an explanation but she just ignored them so she was disqualified from the competition ! I think its the most fair option of the rest of the competitors who are trying to do it legit! This has however spurred the girl who was in 3rd ( now in 2nd ) to put on a mighty push for votes so I'm still racing against her to keep 1st place ! going good so far if I can get to 1500 tonight that would be good pace ! :D

02-14-2016, 02:49 PM
Love it!!! I'm so glad she got what she deserved. Good luck!!

That's great news! Shame on her for trying to cheat.

Thanks guys ! Im glad too ! It would have been a shame if someone won it by cheating ! Im doing my best at the moment and have around 1630 votes but now that he girl in 2nd is gone it gave the girl taking her place a big motivational boost and she is catching up with me big time ! Fingers crossed I can keep up !

Hey mers Mermaid Melanie is in second place right now but she is sooo close to being in first! Don't forget to tell others to vote for her because this contest ends TOMORROW!
Melanie is at 3124 votes right now and first place is at 3129. Wayy too close for comfort so we need to try and get her a comfortable lead. ;)
