We receive many requests to delete what authors consider to be "troll votes" on their guides. We wish to be clear about our stance regarding these requests. We will only revoke votes if we find proof that the user has circumvented system protections, such as in an effort to vote multiple times on same content. This is against the site rules.

Further, there are a number of situations commonly reported as "troll votes" that we will NOT take action against. This includes (but is not limited to);

1) Voter did not provide a valid defense or explanation (meaningless comments).
2) Voter misunderstood an aspect of the guide.
3) Author disagrees with voter's opinion.
4) Voter is rude in their comment.

The point of the voting system is to try to gain an accurate measurement of the general reader opinion of the content on the site for the purpose of ranking. If the voter misunderstood or disliked some aspect of your guide, others will too, and so their vote is representative and necessary. We may moderate the comments themselves if they are nasty, but we will not delete the associated vote.

To be clear; we will not be deleting any votes unless we can find proof that the voter broke site rules by attempting to circumvent system protections.



Additionally, please do not directly PM Moderators or Administrators in an effort to get votes deleted. If you truly feel someone is cheating the system, or if you are offended by their comments, use the report tool and provide all the information you can in your report, including links and any other information that you feel proves guilt. Not only will this ensure that your issue is dealt with as quickly as possible, but it will help us to build up a history on that user.

What about votes where the Voter's comment makes it obvious that they did not read the description?

Which now requires a 5000 text minimum. So, clearly, they're missing a huge portion of the guide that may make them unqualified to vote.
In this case, it isn't an aspect of the guide they "misunderstood" they haven't looked at the entire guide. :x

If they downvoted and they haven't done it through IP cheating or some other method of circumventing the systems, the vote will not be removed, regardless of its validity.

Their vote is still representative. Maybe they didn't read the description thoroughly but they looked at your build and came to a conclusion, as other users would.

That's lame >.< someone down voted me because they said I wasn't level 30 (which I am) That has nothing to do with the build what so ever... So I take it this will not be removed? D:

I was so close to 90% too but oh well >.<
Feel free to +rep me if I helped you out in anyway :) It helps and motivates me to create more guides!

aight please ban this kid lolizam. this guy is just a troll ruining the community. he downvoted my karma build called it "****", did the same with caucheka's build. his own build is copied from someone else.

i can take something like "worst build ever -1" (at least it's somewhat of an opinion). not some ******ed one word spam like "****".

please get rid of him for the sake of the community.

I just got a troll vote, he -1'd me using the comment "IM GAY MOUAHAHAHAHHAAHHAHAHAHAHAHAAH". Which means he didn't even look at any of my guide, he's not "disagreeing with me", he didn't "misunderstand my guide", he didn't have any argument which he would have "explained, or defended". He didn't "include rudeness" in the 'comment', the entire comment was rude. He deliberately intended to lower my rating, he joined Mobafire the day he made this comment, he has 10 other comments, all of which I'm assuming are "IM GAY MOUAHAHAHAHHAAHHAHAHAHAHAHAAH". It's not fair that some of us try to perfect our builds as well as we can in an attempt to have a good rating, when all it takes is one 'troll' to make an account and go around giving -1s with such a comment as this.

Proof of this interaction is on Page 8 of my Trundle guide.

It's also not fair to remove a downvote - even if he's trolling, it reflects his opinion. Like it or not, trolls are part of the LoL community too.

The OP in a tl;dr is "If it's not an IP cheat, we can't delete it."
