To conduct the polling and ensure a reliable accounting of the votes, we made use of the independent service Polldaddy, based in the Netherlands, integrated into the Wordpress, the most popular platform and sites and blogs, on which every sixth website of the Internet is based. This service is used by such popular Internet resources like the PCWorld, Wired, TechCrunch and Myspace. The "Caucasian Knot" had no technical facilities to affect the process of voting.
To nominate candidatures for the contest "Hero of the Caucasus", we launched a special branch (thread) in the forum of the "Caucasian Knot"; it can be also done by any other suitable way of communicating with the edition – by means of the SMS-service, feedback form, and comments to the materials on the page of the "Heroes of the Caucasus".
