< report >@dreamfire-, They're ignored probably because of finishing only one route. I have no clue why only 4, IMO they shouldn't be ignored because the game prompts you to play only one route.Last modified on 2022-01-28 at 12:59

< report >It seems I have been blacklisted since yesterday or today, none of my votes are showing up publicly. Why is that so?

< report >I've been more actively monitoring votes and have relaxed my blacklisting requirements a bit, given the increasing amount of vote manipulation recently. In your case, I find it hard to believe you've actually played all those wonderful LGBTQ Issues games you hated so much.

< report >My scores don't violate any of the rules you mentioned in your first post. You specifically mentioned this in #69 and now you're going back on your word and being the taste police?
To be clear: I don't do anything against people who vote all 10's or all 1's - you can vote however you want and I have no intention to police that. I only act on the guidelines outlined in my first post and ignore any other accusation.

I could've very well played all those "wonderful" games over the past few months and decided to drop my votes on them now, don't you think? You're making massive assumptions here. I've been on VNDB for over a year (and been reading VNs even longer than that) and the majority of those games are very short.Last modified on 2022-02-05 at 18:27

No, you're not convincing me you've played them.

< report >You find it "hard to believe" that I read ~25 VNs in over a year, most of which are under two hours long, many of which are just a few minutes long? Am I not allowed to dislike certain themes, or is there a rule that we have to vote for stuff the moment we read them and not keep it for later?

Because if there is, I'd appreciate it if you officially announced them in this thread or in the faq, because things are pretty arbitrary right now if you censor people based on behaviour you find hard to believe, even though it is entirely possible in the way I have already explained above.

< report >You could say the same about u212412 and u212399. But really, Hakuchuumu no Aojashin needs to be moderated from time to time.

Edit: possibly u212400 too.

< report >Yeah, those could be, I just took the ones with only one vote because they're much more blatant.

Somebody's been trying REALLY hard to inflate Sakura Moyu's score.
More than 30 accounts, with similar naming schemes, created in the last three days, all rating SakuMoyu a 10.

< report >Not sure if this dude has been reported before, but I don't believe that he finished 1858 novels in just over a year. Also he's voting on novels still in his wishlist.

< report >I plead guilty hehehe, about the Sakura, Moyu of course, I can assure you, that all the adulterated scores with 10 and some 9+ were removed, including the one of this account (which is the only one I have in this page)

In achieved the impact that I wished, I know that my actions were the wrong ones and there were more than 30 spam accounts, so I apologize, but I am happy, even there were many good and honest scores on February 13.

As I said, all my spam notes were deleted, so don't worry, it won't happen again and I don't have the energy to spend a whole day logging in (how lazy). So good job on moderating the page from you guys.

I am happy that more people can see the goodness of this visual novel, Sakura, Moyu is a unique and necessary visual novel to know that it is still good to take risks and go beyond, deconstruct and raise the flag higher in a genre that seems to have already reached its peak, fantasy genre and mahou shoujo is more alive than ever.

Thank you very much for keeping my mini review on the site.

This is my magic for the work to which I owe everything.

The last 7 accounts that voted (thelllah to limerance) were literally made on the same day, voted at basically the same times, have very little and very similar votes, and one of the names has a racial slur in it.

< report >#420 yesterday when I checked WA2 was 3rd sorted by rating, guess Umineko fans are vote bombing to make WA2 4th again and they seem to be succeeding.

Voting on all the games that released today (I didn't even check the older votes). They can't even use the excuse of reading the trials and voting on their release date (which would just be a weird tradition by itself) because not all of them have trials.
