Deal voting and etiquette
First let me say thank you for this discussion board, as it has long been needed.
However, to the point, I've noticed something in recent days that concerns me. Many of the recent referrals and new members to this site have had some peculiar voting habits.
For those who do not yet know, I feel they should be aware of a few things on how the site works, what is considered good Buxr voting etiquette, and how voting works for the contests.
1. All voting is disclosed in the open, and other members can see how you are voting. Other members can also see which members you referred, as well as how they are voting. The great thing about this site is that everything is out in the open and viewable by all.
2. Consistently voting positive for a single member is not considered good voting etiquette. This creates an unfair advantage in the daily contests, and could cause people to stop voting for that person's deals or those posted by the other voters out of protest. The mods have been known to revoke voting privileges in these cases, and in extreme cases even close accounts. Its fine for members you refer to vote for you, but not just strictly for you, and not on every single deal you post. It just starts looking real shady over time.
3. If you want to vote on an item, preferably vote on it within the first 24 hours of posting so it counts towards the daily contest results. Votes given after daily contest closures don't count much in the end.
Please, lets keep the contests fun and fair for all members.
