< report >Such is life, you can distribute your vote as you like, as long as you don't have multiple accounts voting and as long as you don't vote on unreleased visual novels.
Your votes are poorly skewed as well, but there's nothing I can do about it.Last modified on 2019-03-30 at 03:29

< report >No, you see, rating every VN you like a 10 is okay, but rating VNs you don't like a 1 is evil and they should be banned for it.

Honestly, I take more offense at the OP's rating philosophy than the person he wants banned. It's okay to look at the things you like a bit more critically.

Are you insane?! What if one ends up not liking it anymore!

Seriously, the arbitrary 1-10(0) system should have never been anywhere but welp, everyone is just letting that ship sail~

Downvoting 300 titles in mere three days, very impressive performance.
Reminds me of the time when I imported, manually, my watchlist from a certain page to MAL. It was a PITA and it was just half the number back then! (151 entries) I think if I were to do this meaningless action now, I could add that number quite precisely since MAL says 2776 episodes and the page I use 8416. Though now that I look at it, I somehow only imported those I did complete...

< report >Not sure what's more ridiculous. The guy, who has no life and gives arbitrary ratings to a fuckload of VNs, or thinking that randomly giving the worst rating to hundreds of titles is someone "looking at things a bit more critically". And not just someone being a random troll.

And surely he has good reason for giving roughly the same about of titles the best rating and there's no doubt that he really has read over 1000 VNS.

I never said this, nor did I mean to suggest it. I just find giving every VN you like a 10 (or 9.5 or whatever) strange. I see both users as two extremes of the spectrum.Last modified on 2019-03-30 at 21:13

< report >#9 I disagree. OP's voting behavior looks pale when compared to the reported user's one.

< report >let alone the fact that every single VN showing here in recent votes released on March 29th
it's like he's carefully avoiding voting for unreleased VNs by voting a day after release wwLast modified on 2019-03-30 at 21:50

< report >LOL trying to call me out? It's cause I play VN's I know i'll love. And take super long to finish reading, so I don't have too many. Anything wrong with that?

< report >He could be having a mental break down. Looking through it seems like close to 99% of his 1 down votes has come in last couple days vs his overall profile can see distinction of some one not just simply putting down 1 number. Not to mention has been a user for a few years now and this is first time has done anything like this.

I would say at very least its questionable unlike OP I think questioning user or maybe a warning would be fine personal. But then again I never really care to pay attention to voting on here.

< report >He's voted entire series with over a dozen games(Kyonyuu Fantasy) a 1 too

Why would you keep playing over a dozen games in a series that you despise enough to rate a 1. "The past 10 games were some of the worst shit I've ever played in my life but I got a good feeling about the next one!"Last modified on 2019-03-31 at 02:11

< report >Trolls will be trolls.

I honestly think, any account that has more than a few "1 votes" shouldn't be counted for the rating. There's just no way you'd read that bad games till the end, or even just a substantial amount, and as such shouldn't really vote to begin with. If you do read that for a good amount of time, you'd enjoy it to a point, making the rating questionable as well.
An exception or two could exist, but for the most part it's just nonsense. Heck, I think a normal person wouldn't even rate anything they completed a 2. A 3 would be as rare as a 10, if not even rarer. Though I guess that also kinda belongs into the "when should you even vote?" category. What is a substantial amount?Last modified on 2019-03-31 at 09:41

< report >If you've read a couple hours of a 30 hour VN and thought it was fucking terrible in every way, feel free to stop playing and vote a 1, it's fine. That's a valid opinion to have and there's no point in trying to force people into some arbitrary scale with such tight restrictions and guidelines.Last modified on 2019-03-31 at 11:13

< report >While this voting pattern is clearly unreasonable, why do you insist you have to 100% complete a VN to rate it? If that was the case, anyone who hated a game would be forced to torture themselves further just to let others know it's bad.

< report >Despite my shitposting earlier, I think it's wrong to expect every single user on a site with ratings to rate something with the same level of commitment and critical thought of a (good) reviewer.

VNDB ratings will never be an objective indicator of how good or bad a VN is. At most, we can expect them to be an aggregate of general feelings and opinions. When I see a person rate a game a 1, I don't go "but did they really play enough of it to know for sure?" Doing so seems counterproductive. If you've played a game (at all) and have formed an opinion on it, you can give it a rating, and that rating is a valid a expression of your opinion.Last modified on 2019-03-31 at 11:28

Not really. While most of the downvoted titles titles are indeed quite ero-heavy, some are quite far from being "pure nikiges", like Dark Blue or Kai's titles for example.
Now that I mentioned it, his pattern seems to be focused on some specific developers. Looks like he's batch-downvoting almost all titles from such companies as LiLiM, LiLiM DARKNESS, Waffle, Kai, Bishop. Also, this pattern only started on 2019-03-27, earlier votes aren't screwed up so much. Maybe this account was hacked or something?

< report >#23 While your principles are reasonable and respectable I doubt the reported user played any of the 300+ games that were voted down in recent four days.
