Yeah, you've been downvoted by one particular user. This is a big problem to me and we will be dealing with this soon.

Please be patient while we decide on how to best handle this.

Other voaters, if you feel you've been downvoted by one particular user just PM me so I can see how prevalent this issue really is.

Thanks. I'm not upset. Just trying to understand how everything works. I know we have a lot of growing pains to sort through. I'm here for the long haul, I hope.

Thanks for being so understanding. We'll get this sorted sooner rather than later.

Have you considered adding a daily limit on downvoating a user A by yser B? I think funnyjunk had something like that.

easy, you can only downvote in correlation to your upvotes. You can even set a maximum amount of DV a day.

I've been thinking about this. I don't know about your DB structure so don't know how feasible these are:

A) Limit change in ccp per day (either plus or negative) for any given user. This would prevent the downvoting from one person but also via mass pitchforking. It would also prevent the circlejerking upvoting that gets a possibly small group to start up voting themselves and then populating /v/all with garbage stuff. You'd only have to add one field to user profile: "# changed" each day. This would be easiest I think. The message would be "this user has received the max possible up/down CCP points for the day"

B) Limit change one user can make in any other users' CCP Might be more DB intensive as you'd have to count the voter and votee's actions. The message would be "You cannot change this user's CCP points any more by up/downvoting their comments"

I'd vote for A since that seems easier to program and does not encourage sock-puppetry to get around the ban.
