Level 69 Troll

Trying to create drama to drum up the ratings by any means necessary!

Vuron Posted:

I hate to say it but maybe you should prevent people from voting until the have met a minimum credit threshold. Unlike flamebate where you need newbies to have the ability to post questions I’m not sure it’s necessary for new players to immediately start voting in forumbuildr. By limiting forumbuildr voting to people that have say 5 levels you can discourage people from spamming illegal multis in order to wreck an endgame.

That actually wouldn’t solve the problem, it would just delay it. Someone dedicated to sabotage would just play through to level 5 or whatever multiple times and then launch the attack.

Can’t ET make something like if you downvote too much you can’t vote anymore? Log in to see images!

Yeah, but it would take a lot of planning and work. We should intend to erect as many obstacles in the path of malicious users as possible, even if it won’t result in perfect protection.

Indeed, imperfect protection is still protection.

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

I’m pretty sold on the idea of minimum level thresholds myself, especially after today. I’m going to run it by the other zombies and see what they thing.

I think some of mt forum ideas were unfairly downvoted and -5’d (forum idea). I’ve done them in the past and they got a fair number of votes but this time it wasn’t even given a chance to be seen.

I meant remove the downvote option only for those that have a track record of downvoting everything. Or maybe make it so you have to earn the ability to downvote.. like you can’t downvote unless you submit stuff or take the time to upvote/pbum stuff for a few weeks.

I have an idea. How about you can’t downvote until you actually get one idea submitted? Because frankly, if you can’t come up with anything better, who are you to criticize it?

Some of us aren’t creative enough to come up with something, but we know funny (and ****ty) when we see it.

The idea I like (which I think is a combination of a lot of ideas that have already been thrown out there more than an original one) is to give people the benefit of the doubt. If they have ****ty voting ratios for a period of time (1 week, 2?), only give them the option to downvote x number of submissions without pbuming/upvoting others. After that, it becomes a percentage of total votes – maybe 40% up/pbum 60% down or something like that. I’m not sure 50/50 is fair just because the ratio of good stuff to **** that I’ve seen isn’t 50/50 either. And if you really hate *everything* in a week where you’re restricted, pbum on it instead of upvoting. (although I see this being something of a coding nightmare)

I really like that idea. I think the downvote wave that hits midweek is just retaliation from crap hitting -5.

That’s why I proposed losing the downvote bumon for people that just downvote everything.
