Good day,

I would like some info regarding the voting system. How many votes do you need to get X %, and how many downvotes for X %.

Since I was at 85% with my guide. It required 7 votes to get from 80 to 85%. While ONLY 2 downvotes (without a comment... derp) bring me back at 80%. I don't really understand why this is the case, how 1 vote van bring you down 3%. Not really good fun when you've put so much work in it and just because you pass some other guides, they downvote you ;)

So how does it work?

Kind regards,

Drasq

Um I don't know all about it but it's like this:

First upvote = 6% - First downvote = 6%
Second upvote= 5% - Second downvote= 5%

then it get's lower and lower but I am pretty sure it's like this.
since you didn't have that many downvotes yet the downvotes weight more than a upvote!

^ That's not how it works.

The voting system uses a Bayesian average. Basically, when you're at a low percentage an upvote will give you more and a downvote will take away less. When you're at a high percentage an upvote will give you less and a downvote will take away more.

Yes, it is lame. :P

IMO: You should always be willing to give a reason why you down or upvote, not after 20 votes that it becomes anonymous.

Just a bit displeased that 2 cocky people downvote without a reason and bring me from second to 6th place...

I think that basically it drags you toward middle(50%). If you're 20% you will get more for upvote than if you're 80% and if you're 80% you will lose more with downvote than if you are 20%. Also more votes mean less and less effect by single vote.

Defeat is not the worst of failures. Not to have tried is the true failure.

Drasq, we used to have forced commenting on voting a while back.
It sucked because everyone was afraid to downvote. This lead to stupidly inflated guide scores that you see today.
