As in Alphabetical. It appears when coasters are voted in the the Alphabetical order in which they appear at the park.
Would be my guess.
From Emails From Mitch Hawker:<speculatory statement>
ME: I am wondering after looking trough my ballot and many other ballot of all the errors that say Alpha on it. I looked through mine and saw no spelling errors so something may be wrong with your balloting system. Please tell me what is going on here.
The Alpha indicator helps me find ballots that have an alphabetical bias.
Ballots with a lot of it may be subject to some deletion of alpha biased
sections before the final results will be calculated.
This is to protect the integrity of the poll from any bias that may ensue
from the default ordering generated by the CoasterFanatics.com helper.
ME: Yea but the alpha error that is listed on my Ballot is where I voted intentionally in that order. Will it still count?
Mitch: Yes, only ballots with 3 or 4 in a row will be looked at more closely.
There you have it. So if you don't have many of these in a row your vote would still count. If you do have these errors in a row and still want it to count I sugguest emailing Mitch about it.
