If somebody made multiple accounts to troll downvote a "rival" guide, is it cool to then call them out on that?

I'm a little new here, but I'm sure that would be appreciated to the community. You can also make it required to leave a comment before voting. That might help!

If you felt I contributed and stuff, can I have a (+1 Rep =3)?

What he said. It could help a little, but there are those people that go through a lot to make their guide seem better. If they downvote yours, downvote theirs. Revenge troll voting is very common, but the first one to do it is the ignorant and immature one...

^ Don't do that.

Do however report some or all of the votes. Making separate accounts just for voting is cheating the system and does warrant a ban.

Please read our rules regarding "troll voting" here: http://www.mobafire.com/league-of-legends/forum/mobafire-support/i-have-found-troll-votes-on-the-site-can-i-get-them-deleted-1976

You can report the votes, because using an IP cheat to vote multiple times from the same IP is against the rules. However, 99% of the time they're not cheating IP, and there might just be a few friends targeting your guide, which is not against the rules. So unless you've gotten downvotes from accounts like Mowen, Mowen1, Mowen2, Mowen3 or 5 downvotes in a row that say the same thing the admins probably won't check since it's highly unlikely they're IP cheating and it takes a really long time to check. You need to have cause to believe it's the same person and not just a few friends / coincidence.

I personally don't revenge downvote, because I don't want to stoop to their level, but it's not against the rules.
Thanks to GrandMasterD for my sig!

Revenge voting is dumb, but Mowen's right. And it is hard to catch cheaters,

Just irritating, all that hard-work and not only does it get downvoted, I've no idea how or what needs to actually be improved.

I know what you mean. I think it's extremely rude, but what else is new? If you go to the review shops, they can give you pointers on how to make your guide better and more presentable.

I have a feeling that the people that down voted without commenting just didn't like your build and didn't even take time to look at it.

Varus is free right now, so I might check your guide out ;3

If you felt I contributed and stuff, can I have a (+1 Rep =3)?
