You haven’t looked carefully enough. Some subs are surviving and even gaining more upvotes even though the others are indiscriminately downvoted. Isn’t it fishy?

One of mine is the top in the category, nobody has been alerted to that being my submission, so nothing bad is goin on. I’m sure it’s serial upvoters just trying to save some regular entries.

You know what… I want to clear the air here, because I’m sensing that same “Oh shi-” feeling from just before the fine upstanding member of society avatars exploded. So, full disclosure.

In the immediate aftermath of the wops getting nuked, I was pretty ****ed off. There are a couple of FB posts around to that effect, and I TMed some people that seemed similarly annoyed to suggest ****ing around with proceedings in response.

Much like the fine upstanding member of society avatars, it’s taken on a bit of a life of it’s own, unlike the fine upstanding member of society avatars I want to jump off the bandwagon before it turns over at 90mph and explodes. Having had some time to cool off, me from a few days ago looks like an idiot to me of right now.

Seems like everything buildr-related I do at the moment spirals beyond my intent… I think I’ll be taking some time off from that side of things, maybe I’ll go play dom or something.

There’s no real pattern. There was one entry that was strangely high, and its submitter was caught and banned for votewhoring.

I know one of my 32 subs isn’t at -5 and is somehow at +7. I hope that doesn’t mean I should be banned Log in to see images!

Not needed anymore now that we have the SarcMark

All I want is a fair go when it comes to the various Buildrs. Is that too much to ask? (Yes, I am aware of the can of worms that’s going to open)

So here, you’re saying you were soliciting people to downvote everything?

I have ample evidence that ET is a weedy little twerp.

I looked into illegal alts this morning. There is no evidence of illegal alt usage in this week’s voting patterns.

The message I sent was essentially “I’m ****ed, thought you sounded ****ed, let’s do something”, the response I got was (largely speaking) “way ahead of you, downvoting”.

So the players with illegal alts are good at hiding their tracks?

Not necessarily. There are likely no illegal alts being used, just organized downvoting, which is harder to do anything about or prove as being not coincidental. Well… Except for the people flat out admitting to it.

I noticed something fishy, too – this one Missionbuildr forum is at over 600 votes? I don’t think that 600+ people upvoted it!

JB said that it would win no matter what. That sounds like he might have cheated to give it additional votes! Isn’t there anyone that we can trust anymore? Log in to see images!

Because at this rate they’ll have to use an algorithm like they do when everything’s voted out of Itembuildr? i.e., random selection?
