Multiple subverses had "please upvote me" threads where their members were able to gain 300+ CCP in matter of hours. At the same time, regular users would need MONTHS to reach this level. Don't you see a problem with that?

All subs with minimum CCP requirement will not show up in /v/all. Homer explained it well here.

Sure, that's a problem. The proper solution is to ban subs and users who manipulate votes, not abolish the system.

We don't make murder legal just because a small number of people violate the laws against murder. We punish the violators. You should do likewise here.

And who would ban subs and users who manipulate votes? We have no employees and we are not making money. We are doing this in our spare time. Now everyone at least has the same powers and the playing field is equal.

The counterpoint can be made that you don't even need a dedicated vote verse, it is easy to get hundreds of points with one post or comment, as it has happened now to me.

I do see a problem with vote manipulation, however, nowadays obtaining CCP is extremely easy. My parent comment has like 130 points at the moment. And if that is 100 CCP is too much, the quantity could be reduced to 50.

And yes, I've read Homer's after my edit and I understand. My main concern is how to discover new subs with restrictions, as I(and possibly many) discover new subs by seeing their posts on All.

We could implement a new /v/all tab for subverses which have minimum CCP requirements and make the discovery easier. I think you're onto something here :)

What about something like requiring someone to provide a brief explanation why in order to downvote something?

That was suggested before but people would just type "asdlkasldkaslkas" and downvote anyway. Humans, a weird species I tell ya.
