Solstice Negatives overaged???

submitted on July 12, 2009 by MacGyver in "Member's Lounge"
Hey Solstice, how come you voted negative on all overaged's posts, and how come you, overaged voted negative on all Solstice's post?

Is this some sort of power user war? And I don't really care that overaged voted negative, but Solstice?

    No, it wasn't. In fact, I think can even explain why MacGyver is asking, if anyone is really interested (I hope not). The neg. vote war that MacGyver mentions at one point touched MacGyver himself Wink

    Yep, I was once in a neg. war with Solstice, but, he started it by voting all my posts down. I just finished it! Big Grin

      Hhhmmmm.... That statement is quite a bite less than accurate. I seem to recall popping in one day to see you having gone ape-[Censored] with the negative voting for no apparent reason. Therefore, considering that nothing was started, by contrast there was nothing to finish.
      It seems more like your trying to make a mountain out of a mole-hill through self-inflation.

    Perhaps we should implement a system that would not allow someone to neg all deals posted by a certain individual.

      The simple solution is to have a voting timer on comments, something like 24 or 48 hours.

      If people are going to bother voting on a comment it usually occurs in that time frame anyway.

      It really makes no sense to me why anyone would ever want to go back and vote all the past comments by another member. Now with the 'reputation' formula reworked there should be absolutely no sense for anyone to do so

      Something else to consider when you alter that aspect...

      Perhaps you could add a little code that invalidates all previous comment votes that were made past that time frame in the past, just in terms of them counting at all. This would reset many individual member reputations to something more realistic, although your new algorithm was a great start on that notion and much appreciated. Wink

      It only occurs out of spite, but a timer would prevent much of that activity from occurring in the future. I think its also reasonable that member should have a good chance of seeing comment voting, during a time period that they might notice it without having to go to the activity pages.
