I am extremely angry with the fact MOBAfire lets troll downvote 24 people with no reason at all. MOBAfire should take action against these guys and it makes me FURIOUS because this happens EVERYTIME i make a guide. I had a heimerdinger guide that was at 77% and 3rd best but is now 72%! WTF. MOBAfire you NEED to stop these guys. You give them freedom of choice but this is OBVIOUSLY trolling! COME ON MOBAfire! You need to get these trolls BANNED then take off there VOTES and bring them back to normal!

I have a post for this...

Must find it and link.

edit:

Oh right, my Sheep Vote thread

Sheep Votes - Infesting our peaceful online pastures! - Click to see an in-depth post and discussion about why the Comment-2-Vote feature that forces voters to comment is bad for ratings.

Troll votes still constitute someone's opinion. It may not be a good opinion, or informed one, but it's still someone's opinion.

They help curb what is an inflated and non-perfect rating system, here in MobaFire.

Unless you can prove an individual has maliciously downvoted your guide more then once, there is no reason for it to be removed.

It's not illegal to be opinionated.



@Random Readers:

Still not quite understanding me?

This IS normal. Troll voters do not deserve to be banned. Only cheaters do.

Last time we tried to stop troll votes it didn't work.

Hint: You can't stop them. No way possible. Trolls don't care about limits imposed; people who legitimately want to vote DO care. Moreover, 90% of "troll votes" are just people voting without commenting because they either 1. fear retaliation or b. generally don't care (for instance, if I think the guide writer won't take my advice or the guide has many votes anyways, I won't take the time to comment).

the 10% that are people commenting AND "trolling" might actually be troll votes, but we can't get rid of them or run the risk of destroying legitimate votes.

Innocent until proven guilty, my friend.

I'm pretty sure keeping your opinion a secret falls under "Right to remain silent".


They don't have to tell you why. That's not relevant to making the rating system accurate.

Originally, MobaFire didn't make comments necessary to vote. People were all whiney about it, so they added it and it was horrible. Everyone got 90%+ so easily, it wasn't funny.



And I just looked at your guide.
It's one downvote. Calm down for goodness sake. ONE DOWNVOTE, THE WORLD'S GOING TO END.

Cry me a river. Build me a bridge. Then, GET OVER IT.
