< report >The Steam reviews/Itch.io comments on Aquadine are widely positive, so it could just be... a genuinely good VN. I agree that votes would typically be more spread out, though.

< report >link
This game somehow has five reviews out of 28 votes (which is insane) and they're all 10/10s. They might all be real but I find it suspicious.

< report >I tried looking in the last few pages for discussion about it before posting and after your reply and couldn't find any. Maybe I haven't looked hard enough?

< report >If we can prove that someone couldn't read a VN he voted on, will he go on the ignore list? I am not talking about conjectures like I often see here but like the guy himself admitting not understanding Japanese and not using MTL, meaning he voted on the pictures or I don't know what.

< report >Why are the votes all exactly 9 out of 10? Where are all the 8/10 and 10/10 votes? Why are there so many reviews for this new random game (especially compared to the total vote count)?

it just seems so fishy. it feels like someone is setting it upLast modified on 2021-03-03 at 22:03

< report >I wouldn't be surprised if the 10 who voted on the troll entry link were the same people. u163108 also made a troll entry. There is a lot of overlap but then they are mostly very popular games. Just a feeling.Last modified on 2021-03-07 at 03:04

< report >Do hidden votes affect ratings ?

The votes on link are pretty suspicious. Can't check their other votes anymore but they were suspiciously similar as a whole before going private as wellLast modified on 2021-03-16 at 01:57

< report >A series of very new accounts giving extremely similar high votes (8/9/10) to the same 3 VNs (Koshotengai no Hashihime, Gakuen Heaven 2 ~Double Scramble!~, Our Life: Beginnings & Always) and a couple giving low votes (1/2) to a fourth (DRAMAtical Murder):

u192569
u192570
u192573
u192575
u192576
u192631
u192673
u192742
u192790

There are also several more high votes for Our Life: Beginnings & Always from new accounts with no other votes; might be worth checking to see if any are socks: u192561 u192562 u192563 u192564 u192565 u192567 u192568Last modified on 2021-03-23 at 01:51

< report >This guy has seriously suspicious voting behavior...like 35 games are literally rated as 10 and two games are rated 7 and 8. Although, this user registered years ago but the voting date is within this year. Can I ask to confirm this is a bad behavior voting?
