Well, I don't know if it's against the rules or not, it's up to the mods.

can you come up with a single reason why it might be against the rules? i'm honestly wondering the thought process behind this.

#83 there's technically nothing in the rules against voting on a three point scale

it's fucking stupid, and i think you should get filtered for doing it, but it's allowed as of right now.

that said, it is a bit tragic that his voting system ends up affecting titles that have very low vote counts like Kagerou Touryuuki, My Merry Maybe, Kikaijikake no Eve -Dea Ex Machina-, and Otaku ☆ MasshiguraLast modified on 2018-12-18 at 21:17

Well, half of his votes are 1. And many of those games are generally considered must play or something like that.
I can't see those votes as legit. But maybe it's just me.

Exactly. A game with few votes may get a bad average for no reason.Last modified on 2018-12-18 at 21:20

#85 I mean, I can't really believe that any sane human being would give Muramasa or Chaos;Child a 1 either, but the staff has made it pretty clear that they're willing to allow things like this.Last modified on 2018-12-18 at 21:24

Dunno, I see those as troll or hate votes.
Anyways, I'll let the staff decide. I simply thought it was strange.

Ehh, this isn't totally related to voting but it's what made me wonder in the first place. I suspect that u129047 and u133184 are the same person. Either that or there's two different people out there who have a vendetta towards the same Russian TL group and who voted the same Russian VN a 1 on the same day.

u102357 might also be a sock, but given their voting history, I think they're probably just someone who hates Russian VNs.

I'm certain that u33893 and u34112 are the same person. They don't always rate the same VNs on the same day, but they usually do, and their scores are almost always identical.

Number of votes cast by karashi = 564
Number of votes cast by gogo = 710

Number of titles rated by karashi but not gogo = 36
Number of titles rated by gogo but not karashi = 182

Number of titles rated by both karashi and gogo = 528

Number of titles karashi and gogo have given different ratings = 62 (and in nearly all of these cases, their scores are within 1 point of each other)

Number of titles which karashi and gogo have given the same rating = 466

So while there's clearly been an attempt to differentiate the accounts, there's just way too much overlap for them to not be the same person.

^I remember noticing their votes a while ago and checking it out, and they appear to be the translation group Twin Project link (credited there as Gogo and Arashi) and probably just have very similar tastes.
