Submitted in Flashback 1 category as it was played on a Flashback 1 console. Someone felt this is in the wrong category and therefore voted 'no'? No advice, no comment? ... How can it be 'wrong' if I post in it's correct and most specific category?

I think some people just pick a random reason sometimes.

@S.BAZ: The no vote on my Crystal Castles on Atari Flashback 1 score was for the same reason, so maybe in this case it's not random. It's a bit absurd as I would also get no votes if I posted it in emulated. Probably even more people may then point out it's the wrong category (see Omar's recent post of Asteroids on FB2 under emulated). I think in both cases no votes are unnecessary, a discussion would do. It's a bit sad as I currently try to revive this section a bit as my brother's got the same console and we may start a little competition. ... Well I guess we all get a few harsh no votes, don't we?

It was probably just the usual troll.

@RetroRob:

It's unfortunate that we have two charts that the same score can go onto.  So some users will think it should be one chart, others think it should go on the other chart... But if they don't like the idea of it going on both (like "double-dipping" basically), then maybe they will vote no for the same score on one chart and yes on the other.

but also... yes we all get some nonsense no-votes  x)

@S.BAZ: Thanks for your thoughts on this! I don't easily vote no as in a case of a mistake I usually find it fair to just advise and skip. However if it's a case of cheating or other ignoring of the basic rules a no vote may stop false high scores and help to enhance the integrity of this site.
