VOTE

WHAT STAYS NEED TO KNOW ABOUT
THE FOUR STAR AWARD

The Preliminary voting began October 16th 2023, and lasts 33 weeks, which means the final week of prelim voting will begin May 27th and end on June 3rd.

 

Every week the vote is reset and the totals for that week are added to the groups preliminary total.

At the end of the prelims that total is calculated and 30% of the total is carried into the final round of voting. 

The TOP 10 Groups from the prelims will move on to the final round, which we can expect to begin June 3rd at Noon KST!

The group who has the most votes after combining the 30% from the preliminary round to the 70% from the final round is the winner.

Looking at the numbers from the 2023 Four Star voting is a great way to understand how the scores/votes are tallied to determine rankings & the winner.

As many learned from the 2 previous years, winning the pre-vote does not guarantee you win the award but closing the gap a group starts off with as soon as the final round starts could be problematic for some, STAYs tend to love the rush and push when we face votes like this but many were determined to at least try to make it a bit easier and have worked diligently throughout the pre-vote since week 1  to ensure that the final round is easier for us this year.

To calculate the votes accurately use this formula:

30% of TOTAL pre-votes  +  70% of TOTAL final votes = TOTAL USED TO RANK EACH GROUP

Example:

Pre-Vote total is 100,000

0.30*100000 = 30,000

Final Vote total is 150,000

0.70*150000 = 105,000

30,000 + 105,000 = 135,000

The total of votes used to determine the ranking would be 135,000  ✅

❌  NOT 250,000 ❌

STAYs can see the weekly breakdown for the TOP 3 groups every week of pre-vote HERE
Fann Star weekly reset is every
Monday at NOON KST

Please note that using the VIDEO VOTING option the last 30 mins of daily voting is disabled; keep this in mind when pushing to complete all 40 video votes daily.

FANN STAR TUTORIAL

THIS GUIDE IS FOCUSED ON MAXIMIZING YOUR YELLOW STAR DAILY COLLECTION

The goal is to use VIDEO VOTING to reduce or increase the gap & saving Yellow Stars for last pushes - Yellow Stars expire 15 DAYS AFTER COLLECTION so you can not save thousands for the final round but during the pre-vote you can save them at the start of the week and drop expiring stars each day so they are not wasted.

Before the final round begins bases will calculate collection days leading up to the final vote and be able to advise STAYs when to SAVE ALL STARS and when to DROP!

Remember each account can use 40 video votes a day to automatically add 50 Stars per video to Stray Kids voting total and you can only drop 1,000 stars a day (yellow & rainbow) so please avoid over collecting/purchasing thinking you can drop 10,000 on the last day, you will only be able to use 1,000 wasting the rest.

G+ Points are not the priority during the FOUR STAR Vote, the ranking does help give accounts extra spins on the roulette wheel or gives a boost in your reward when completing your daily missions but for this vote G+Points will not significantly effect your ability to vote like it does during the CHOICE AWARDS voting later in the year (Aug-Sept).

THIS IS THE VIDEO TUTORIAL WE MADE LAST YEAR SHOWING YOU EACH METHOD TO COLLECT YELLOW STARS - IT IS ONLY MISSING 1 NEW METHOD (SPON MISSION) WHICH WE WILL ADD AND REUPLOAD AS SOON AS WE CAN!
ACCOUNT CREATION HELP

Fan N Star is semi-device-locked, & because login methods need to be authentic, we suggest using separate SNS methods to create additional accounts. 

You CANNOT log into accounts using the same login method back-to-back & you CANNOT use the same email address even if it's through a different SNS method (for instance, don't use the same email you use to login through Facebook with KKT or your Apple ID).

Try this:
Account 1- Google Email
Account 2- Facebook
Account 3- Apple ID
etc. 

Do NOT try going from one Google login to another; it won't work.
Do NOT make serial usernames (e.g., STAY1   -   STAY2   -  STAY3)
There is also one instance we saw in which using emails that use the same serial method may also become a problem (e.g., STAY1@email.com  -  STAY2@email.com, etc.) so be careful with those just in case.

Fan N Star will terminate the accounts if they feel their policies are being violated in an attempt at voting manipulation. Which means they track IP Redundancy looking for mass account creation in a short amount of time & accounts with serial email addresses & usernames.

It is logical to assume that there may be 2 people in the same household who would want to participate in a vote, but those same 2 people are not going to have serial usernames or email addresses. They are not going to have 10-15 accounts all created within an hour watching video votes at the exact same time that would look like macros or bot behavior, which is against their policy and will cause your accounts to be terminated & a strong possibility that your votes will be deleted.

During the 2023 pre-vote, STAYs saw after the end of each week that after Fan N Star ran their checks, there would be a fluctuation in each group's final weekly numbers that were posted vs the numbers we saw at the end of each week, meaning they did delete votes they deemed illegal. So BE SMART & BE CAREFUL!

TIP: HOW TO READ ALL 150 ARTICLES QUICKLY

Fan N Star limits some of the available features to MOBILE USERS ONLY. For instance, Video Voting is limited to mobile ONLY, but reading articles is one of the ones you can do on your PC using the website. It's easier to get through all 150 of them if you are doing all 5 languages on your PC because there are fewer ads, you can zoom out the page to make scrolling down easier, and you can use the "END" key to instantly get to the end of the article instead of scrolling down to collect your star.

You can also open each article in a new tab and let them load at the same time, then receive your star and go to the next tab so you don't have to click next and wait for the next article to load.

TIME EVENTS

You can participate in 2 Timed Events per day and collect +50 Yellow Stars from each one. The schedule below is when events are active & the language the app needs to be in to collect during that event. You CANNOT do back-to-back timed events. Complete one Time Event from each group of scheduled events every day for 100 Yellow Stars!

TIMES ARE LISTED IN KST

9: 30 - ENGLISH
13:00 - KR/JP/VT
14:00 - CHINESE

18:40 - KR/JP/VT
19:45 - CHINESE
22:50 - ENGLISH

To help keep you focus in completing your 40 video voting ads per account per day, USE A TIMER! There is a 10-minute cooldown in between video votes, so as soon as you finish a video vote, set a timer for 10 minutes to remind you when it's time to quickly go do another!

Get in a voice chat over Discord or host a Twitter space with other STAYs and listen to Stray Kids' extensive discography together while setting a timer, reminding the entire group to go do a video vote together. It encourages others while helping pass the time with friends!
