Does "Other" for reasons why a score is not viewed as legit include, "I'm just a jerk"?
I'm saying this in a half-joking way, of course, but I've got 5 "Other" votes and the lowest legit rating I've ever had on one of my games. I guess it would be nice to know what I'm not doing for people.
When I voted a "no" on a game, I felt the list of choices for "why" was quite sufficient.
It was on my 2048 LoTR Edition, web. I've had more positive votes, so it's not as negative now, and after I had seen those reasons, I posted my 2048 6x6 Board score, and it's been voted negatively, as well.
I really don't mind negative votes if the reasons make sense; I just don't know what an "Other" reason would be that would make sense in these cases--especially since the reason list is so comprehensive.
Unfortunately there are people who are just being jackasses and will vote no on everything with no matter what you do. The irony, considering I'll bet they don't have videos of scores themselves with showing their faces, people witnessing the event, etc./whatever they feel is the best evidence possible.
I have NEVER had this many no votes. I am getting the same amount of no votes on EVERYTHING! This is really damaging this site. Do you think that the "no trolls" are wanting this site to come to a halt? This is not good. I have fun. take pics, and post. I vote (almost always yes), unless there is a good reason. Most of the time I will post that I did not vote and why. I give the person time to take down or fix. This is the way it should be. i do not know who operates this site, but there should be a way to kick a person that votes all no votes all the time. Their should be some percentage taht a person must vote yes. Thanks to all and keep having fun.

This has been discussed many times before, but unfortunately site owner Serious is very laid back and doesn't do anything to the no voters (to the best of my knowledge).

As the way it SHOULD be. Unfortunately when I voted on several of your scores last night they tumbled from 100 to about 70 something percent today. That's a load of crap. Even though you don't have videos for pinball scores I doubt you would waste time putting up your business cards on scores and all and give you the benefit of a doubt. You disappear from time to time probably because real life takes you away from here. I don't feel like doing things time and again but right now it's a mix of that and the no votes that are keeping me from posting scores.
Darryl, thank you for your reply. I discovered this site @ 9 months ago; it got me started playing my retro consoles again. Yes, I have a career; I own my own business. Sometimes I have used that card with my pics. The last few years I pretty much stuck to pinball; I have started playing retro consoles again. I save my pics when I play, then I post multiples at once. while I am on here I vote. I always vote for many more than I ever put up. This site will die if people do not vote. I am just amazed how a few people can really ruin a good thing going here. Two firends of min and myself have leased a house and we are gaming in it. We call it the House Of Games (or HOG for short). I have our first tournamnet set up. Retro console games, retro video games, and pinball. Again, thank you very much for the reply and keep gaming!
It's bad that people are voting no for scores that are actually legit. Those idiots have targeted me now. Every score I have posted this week has at least one or two no votes saying they do not trust the submitter. But I do try my hardest to provide the correct evidence.
I know this isn't anything new as it has been an ongoing problem with this site. I think what the trolls want is to make people feel bad about their progress and stop uploading scores.
So we all must be tolerant and continue to post our best scores. Don't feed the trolls.
All August the no trolls were more or less silent.
Now all of a sudden, starting this weekend, at least one no vote has been cast in every game I submitted despite crystal clear video on YouTube and photo w/ID Card like all the others I've seen have if it's a #1 score.
And for the same reason "Do not trust the voter, bad legit rating, etc" which is ludicrous given that mine has been floating around 97-98% for about a year now.
I really don't mind negative votes if the reasons make sense
The way I look at it is, if I can see how the reason makes sense, then that helps me to improve my evidence. If it makes no sense to me, well no loss. I just don't know what they were thinking. The point is it made sense to them so either way I don't care, I just look to see if it helps me at all. If not, no worries.
I am not a follower of the church of the believer of the mythical troll. I respect the no-votes I get and I assume they had a reason for it. I think that is important when it comes to having fun at this site.
