Ok guys, we are nearing the end of our crusade against jerks. As of 10pm tonight, any spam votes are gone. Cheaters are feeling the cold sting of ban-hammer. A new voting system has been built from the ground up to replace the old one. It is much more sophisticated. This new system includes stringent checks to prevent future abuse, as well as monitors and alarms to help us catch anyone else that tries to misbehave. If you get a false positive and are told you cannot vote even though you know you're not breaking any rules, let us know. This update was purely cleaning house up to this point, the only new feature is that voting no longer reloads the page.

Now that we've got this garbage behind us we can get back to actually making things you want! Expect some sweet new updates, including some long-awaited score and vote changes, to show up soon :)

Confession? I remember abusing it just for fun to see if it really worked.

Taric - The Leagues Paladin: 24 to 17 (-7) The build I boosted back then doesn't resemble the one I got now, hell i'd even go as far as reposting it...
Annie - The Frostfire Warlock: 70 to 64 (-7) I think 3 of the votes went to build I cared for.
Ryze - The Glass Canon: Unknown... but I must have boosted it so I think I did atleast get (-4).
Veigar - The Manhatten Project: 30 to 26 (-4) I think it was more of streak I went on.

Mordekaiser - The Hellknight: 29 to 29 (0) What was the point? at that moment I actually regreted ever doing it.

Does this site have more rules I should know of? tsk, tsk I'm kidding ^ ^,
Why did I do it? Simply because I could...

I killed the **********er coz i simply could. I had a gun and i had the urge to see how ppl die.
:/

I think i have a 2nd acc it was created for sake of posting a guide and see if ppl accualy like the build or just follow the name and i was thinking about posting "petition" on that acc but as i know my name was recognised i officialy posted it on on my real acc.

But boosting stats or lowering others... naaaaaaaah...

Rules.

We have no intention of releasing the details of who was/wasn't caught but since you outed yourself... Alahric yes we did see that and it was rolled back. In your case we felt your good contributions to the community offset the few infractions. You also came under attack by certain others, so we considered it a bit of self defense.

However, the new system is less forgiving, and we also have the above list of rules published and as part of our user agreement. I hope next time people will let us know if they find a loophole rather than take advantage of it, but that is probably asking too much ;P

We also have a list of things we plan on doing to improve the voting and scoring system overall, and right now we're only about halfway through it - the cleanup and protection phase. You are going to love some of the coming changes, and I'm sure some of you will complain about others, but rest assured we would not make any drastic change without a lot of very careful consideration. I'll post an explanation for it all once it's up :)

@DEWO

*careface*

Big deal, whew, that's sorta what I feel xD
I did it simply because I could, call it trolling or justifying the unjustified negative votes.
In the end I didn't really care, although I do regret it mostly because it looks like a fraud.
PS: I don't obsesivly negative vote others, that's just not me.. sadistic bastard.

@Matt

I'm an honest man and so I felt it would only be appropriate to releave myself of that "sin", even tho I didn't agree to anything. Yet, everyone knows right from wrong so I can't say I didn't know. That and people would definatly start asking questions -> honesty -> gotta be said : /

Let's just put it behind us, DEWO's the man, just gotta admit that ^^,
I've changed, It's what I contribute, not the ratings -> that's why I archived some of my builds.
