my only complaint is that you people are happy

Okay, I have a confession, first. Back when -3 was in effect, RPGam worked on killing all opposition. It’s how I got up a style when I really shouldn’t have: we downvoted all other entries until mine survived.

Now, this -5 is harder, but if you have a large klan (not that hard), hypothetically, locking down a minor division like ideas, logos, or styles wouldn’t be impossible.

I’m just saying.

You’d have to use an instant messaging system.

Like, oh, IRC.

Well, you don’t even have to be that coordinated. There just has to be enough users down-voting every submission that isn’t there’s for it to all come down to luck.

Seriously…if you’re going for a particular E-Peen, you almost have to spend all your submissions on one type of submission, just because some of them are going to be hate-voted out of the running. Log in to see images!

“Problem Child IV”

I actually thought of this, as well as probably a lot of people. This really needs to be worked on.

“Gloomy Gus”

Whatever, if people wanna be huge fabulous persons than they will find a way to downvote everything they want. I think the system is about as good as it can be, especially since mods say they warned extreme downvoters. I think it has gotten much better the last 2 weeks than it used to be.

“Pain in the ASCII”

I suppose one way to combat this is to limit people to voting in, say, 10 random entries per type. This not only lessens the impact of serial downvoters, it also helps prevent coordinated upvoting as well.

If there were a limited number of votes per person per week, perhaps you could also earn more votes based on your forumbuildr score?

If votes were limited per week, any submissions coming after Monday morning would be pretty much dead on arrival; they’d never get enough up votes. Maybe a max # of votes per day?

It is very exploitable. All forumbuildr forums should be deleted until it is fixed.

“Cutty Cutterson”

Maybe they should factor in forumbuilder voting ratio into your forumbuilder score. So if you have a natural score of 10 but a voting ratio of .5, your final score would be 5.

This doesn’t take into consideration that there is a lot of crap that gets submitted. Seriously, I read every submission before I vote, and while on occasion I change my mind after the vote, usually, if I upvote, it’s because it was clever, humorous, entertaining, or at least original in some way. If I downvote, it’s usually because it’s drek.
