< report >Never heard of sarcasm? #129 is the reaction to #128 post. Though if u171136 is indeed created solely for downvoting VB and is the alt of u98303 maybe Yorhel can IP check the alt and welcome him into the fabulous voting ignore list.

< report >Even if it were an alt (dunno, didn't check, but doesn't seem like it to me), u98303 never voted on Venus Blood -Frontier- so it wouldn't be duplicate voting.

anzzz is overreacting and eacil's reply is the correct one.

< report >#134, that's pretty bad proof tbh you could have made it yourself.

User is free to make whatever review they want. The majority of the other reviews have a huge chunk of text justifying it so seems pretty kosher to me.

A hidden user voted all of these (by the same dev) a 1. I suspect they're the same person and a troll.

They are all obviously the same user trying to upvote Axanael, Totono, Sumaga, Tokyo Necro, Muramasa, Sakura no Uta, and a few other games.

These are images links to axanael, sumaga and tokyo necro respectively.

All accounts made today, all accounts have a similar naming scheme and all give around 8-10 for a similar bunch of VNs.

< report >u176131

I'm getting bad vibes from this user. An excessive number of games voted in very short succession as either 1 or 10 exactly in the order of best rated VNs going down the list.

At the very least it's almost certain they've not played the games they're voting on. Maybe trying to manipulate ratings but idk how much effect they'd have.Last modified on 2020-05-30 at 01:56

< report >#149, my biggest problem is that they're just going down the list of highest rated in order. There's clearly a calculated methodology to it. Malicious or not is debatable.
