< report >Indeed, what the fuck is wrong with this guy giving -1 yo to all characters?
I couldn't check all characters' age but the few I could are wrongly edited so I will assume all their edits are malevolent, revert them and remove their author's rights.
Edit: all reverted (fucking asshole wasting my time like that smh)Last modified on 2022-09-23 at 04:40

< report >There looks to be a fandom wars going on between Stein's; Gate and MLA with multiple accounts:

There are a bunch of malicious votes for Muv-Luv Alternative to sabotage its rating coming from new accounts:

Also a few trying to do the opposite:

Then, there's some random users that haven't marked the VN's as read giving their first 1 vote on MLA:

< report >I say we don't count any vote from new accounts until they are one month old. Then we count them only when the user comes back a month later (they are active and didn't just dump votes before bailing) and, on VN with more than 100 votes (top 1893), if they have rated more than 10 VN (and possibly stiffen activity requirement).
That would kill a lot of worthless voters and trolls but, ultimately, I just want to see how the top 50 would survive.

< report >Please consider blacklisting votes and lengths from this guy > u171867. Look at link and tell me it's possible. I calculated than in August they read 10H every day no breaks, July 8H a day, June, 8-9H a day, etc. We are talking about a nukige every one or two days, you know, these big games you are supposed to fap to, not just appreciate the story. In 2022, they have already voted on 203 VN and we are not talking about game jam VN.

< report >To be the devil's advocate it is possible, that he is migrating his profile to VNDB and we can see all this activity because he/she has read those VNs long ago.

< report >one week later steinsgate is #1 and MLA has fallen to #2. The campaign by sciadv stans has been successful. Steinsgate isn't even the best SciAdv novel, embarrassing.

< report >#522 I'm a fan of both MLA and Steins;Gate (I've rated both as some of the greatest VNs ever made), and even I've noticed the "campaign" to dethrone MLA. People aren't voting objectively and fairly, they're doing it in a targeted attack. Yes, it's petty and pathetic, but that doesn't mean it should be allowed.Last modified on 2022-12-02 at 01:43

< report >I don’t know if it’s worth adding user that exceed the amount in time, but I’ll take a chance.
This user has 425 hours of ANIM games. Even the slowest players don't spend that much time on such short nukiges.
