Pingback/postback for voting
« on: June 30, 2019, 07:58:47 PM »
Hey, posting a suggestion:

Some toplist sites have a pingback functionality - when someone votes for a site, a confirmation is sent from the toplist website to the shard's website or server, that makes it possible for the vote rewards to be given out fairly. If there's no confirmation, and a voting stone gives a reward just for opening the link, some people don't bother to actually vote, that's often the case with topsites that have captcha.

Would you consider adding this function to the shard listings?

Funny I was actually thinking about this the other day.  Was thinking some kind of token is generated by the shard and it's added to the vote link, and then uogateway would send a POST request to a URL on the shard's site with that token to confirm the vote went through. 

I have no immediate plans to do this (just busy with other projects) but it's definitely something I will look into.
