or use incognito/private browsing as an easy/quick work around.

A bigger problem will be uni compasses where thousands might get the same ip.

Incognito doesn't change your IP it just doesn't store browsing information on your box.

Yes I know, might not have been clear but the first line in regards to incognito, I'm responding to the session id in a cookie. You open incognito and instantly have a work around.

The second line is in regards to preventing upvoats on the same ip, will penalize people such as those on uni campases.

Require a cookie to log in. Problem solved.

You already need a cookie to log in, and one for the "checking your bits"-thing. It doesn't help:

  1. Open Incognito Mode
  2. Log in with user 1
  3. Voat
  4. Close Incognite Mode
  5. Repeat with more accounts until desired effect is achieved

That's only really preventable with IPs or with browser fingerprinting.

Wouldn't the browser just get a new one, the same way as if you logged in from a new location?
