Troll vote from u161928 on The Sekimeiya: Spun Glass, not one of the backers so they haven't played the game nor have access to it.

They wishlisted the game so they probably didn't mean to vote on it

< report >This might not really be a suspicious vote, but I'll post it here because I don't want to make a separate thread for this.

There's this one person just making a whole bunch of accounts, which all have similar votes to each other before they are all removed and a new account is made soon after, what's up with that?

link link link are three examples of this, though I know there are at least 10+ more of these accounts.

< report >There's now a hidden "5" vote on almost every single released Japanese game in the DB.

I would especially like to know how they played Sci Fi Mahjong since everything points to that game never having been released. The release dates on Amazon and DMM are contradicted by the delay announcement on the official website and it's listed as cancelled on Getchu.

< report >lol I'm a scatterbrain.

That user was already on the ignore list, but this morning I stumbled upon that account again and thought it wasn't, so I unchecked the ignore box while thinking was checking it. Anyyyyywaaayyyyy ignorelisted again.

not voting but this user keeps posting about their homework assignement service in the forums, should be treated as spam.

Not sure if this can be considered a violation of #2, but thought I'd report it anyway.

< report >i'd consider the vndb staff most suspicious since they remove games to make sure the #1 vn goes to a ~~~~~classic~~~~~. then again, this is also a site that ranks boobs by cup sizes, so you can't exactly expect quality.

Yes, that's absolutely why we remove the games from the db. Muv-Luv... must... flow...

I never realized how weird it sounds when you say it out loud... >_>

Aegis Rimjob only had a Bayesian Rating of 8.21. It didn't even crack the top 20.
