To vote for ... go to "http://....org" and click the
"vote" button. Every 12 hour interval a player can give a valid web vote.
Once a valid web vote is "clicked" you will have to log out/in a player to
get the webvote active.

Valid web votes are only checked each time a player is logged in.

A valid web vote give a 1 hour (real time) double experience if the host the
vote was delivered from match the players host.

A valid web vote also give a option for those who are questing to gain
double quest points during the 1 hour (real time) web vote window.

To check the status or your webvote timer or window, use the checkwebvote
command.
As a reminder to all, the voting rules can be found at:

http://www.topmudsites.com/rules.shtml

The short version - rewards for voting are not allowed, whether a personal reward or a global MUD event because a MUD reached a certain voting position. You can have code in your MUD to help players track voting time / reminders as long as it is 100% opt-in and there is no in-game benefit to using it.
