I decided to make this thread to go around and helping some good folk out with their guides removing, or better yet NEGATING, troll votes by giving an upvote to your guide. However in order to earn one there has to be some criteria that is met. I hope people find this thread and take me seriously because with the new release of Talon I feel that some guides get popular due simply to character popularity and some are left in the dirt because of an abundance of "Troll Votes"

For me to review a guide I need and Inboxed message of...
  • The reason you want my vote and why I should provide one.
  • The Name of the vote in specific you want negated so maybe I can persuade them to not be so hasty in their vote.
  • And the page of the comment that they posted/voted upon.
  • Give me a link to your guide, 1 per person.

1. The guide has to be legitimately good, I have to read it over and believe in not only effort placed into the guide but also that the build is viable which should be supported with some in depth explanation.
2. The "Troll Voter/Down Voter's Name should be inboxed along with the criteria above.
3. The voter MUST HAVE posted a comment with a downvote.
4. Their reason for a downvote should conflict with my belief of (Effort, Time, Logic, Reason and Explanation of your guide)

I hope this thread is noticed and I get some feedback from what I'm trying to do here. Inbox me if you meet the criteria, and comment on the thread with the criteria as well/instead of if need be.

Very nice thing you are doing! Yea, everyone gets troll votes, but this sure won't hurt.

I was at first thinking this was a bad idea, since you would just be blatantly sheep voting (+1 for the hell of it, basically trolling with +1s) and inflating scores, even of bad guides, but then when you said that it needs to be a legit good guide in your opinion,



+Rep, nice thing you're doing ^^

Definately an appropriate picture. Thanks for the support, at first I was just going to troll +1's but then that will also hinder the voting system, I'm just trying to improve on what some people established. Thanks for the rep!

Although this will become slightly ineffective because guides are displayed in percentage. Troll votes require more upvotes to "NEGATE" than to counter vote it.
BUT i feel that you're doing something that is very helpful... in the most it can depending on how many votes are in already. GOOD JOB. +rep
Found me any bit helpful? Give me a+Rep if you liked my comment!

I've gotten quite a few downvotes on my Urgot guide because it's quite unorthodox. Most people build him as a carry while I don't. I've also gotten a few from idiots who know nothing about the champion, the game itself or simply didn't bother reading anything in the guide.

But guess what?
I've got the top guide.


I'm against this movement because most guides actually DESERVE the downvotes they get. EVERYONE gets idiots who think they're voting down for a good reason, but if the guide is truly good then it will be able to reach the top or at least an 80+ percentage. If the top guide doesn't get "compensation votes" while another one does then that's kinda unfair.
I don't think I've seen a single good guide with less than 80%.

Downvotes exist for a reason. They're actually good for the site. You make them seem bad..

I don't think down votes are bad in any way, many people give some constructive criticism and reasons why their guide is bad. I am just trying to help people from LEGITIMATE troll votes, despite what you think they do exist and I'm just trying to slightly negate them despite the fact it takes more Up votes to eliminate a down vote. Also there is a criteria to meet, I'm not just going around randomly tossing votes in people's favor. I see your point but I also think that the system is Kind of broken, you don't think so because you have a top rated guide so you may feel differently than me :/ ...

Well said but yeah every system has it flaws. You just cant defeat the trollers alone except if they made a ''troller negate squad'', tossing out votes to awesome guides who got troll voted xD

Voted, on your guide. Very similar to my Skarner guide so I had no reason to downvote. :D

I don't think my troll guide will get enough votes to even be a good or bad troll guide. It's not listed under new guides, only under humorous. :'(
