The voting system is completely retarded

I just can't wrap my head around this unmitigated, pure crap we use for voting. Here's a situation where I actually have to vote waaaay lower than it deserves, in order to increase a release's rating.

This is simply ridiculous.



"Hey, this release is really cool, I'll give it a tenner."




"WTF, the rating got lower?!? Ok, maybe it counts as an illicit upvote and it is filtered with some clever algorythm, let's go with 9 then."




"Damn, now it's way lower than it would be without my vote. Maybe an 8 will help?"




"Nah, this is getting worse, but let's see what happens if I vote with a 7."




"Shit, still no good, I'll jump to an ever lower number just for the sake of experiencing more of this shit."




"Oh great, now we're getting somewhere, one more try."




"YEY! I love this release, so it will get a 6 from me."

If only we mods could remove the voting, it would have been done already since a long time.

Like, Neutral opinion or Dislike would suit the common voting trend better.... But I get it, it's tough... People have put effort in something (usually).

In compo's I'd like to see order of preference instead of giving scores, I think that would be the most honest way to determine an end score.

Yep.
On the other hand: sorting all the entries from compos like crack intro music, he-man compo and 128 byte charset compo would be a hell of a job then ;-)

In this case my vote (suggestion/support) would be: make votes public, end of problem.

What's the problem? Feelings???? HAHAHA fucking SJWs...

Respect is earned, not given. HTFU!


making all votes public would not be the end to the problem, I can guarantee it would be the start of many more problems since this site contains far too many sad and egotistical clowns that will then go on to harass people that voted for the way they did. also, I'm not sure where the rest of comment fits in with the rest of the conversation. what do 'sjws' have to do with anything? "respect is earned, not given" - what? I don't understand what you mean by that.

when you vote at your elections, do you write down your name on the ballot before you cast it? of course not. why should it be any different elsewhere? oh, I know why.. because of the sad and giant egotistical clowns that want to give other users trouble for the way they voted. this is the only reason why some users want all votes public, and we all know it's true. the harassment of users has happened before by unhappy uploaders that become infuriated because they 'believe' their upload should have got a higher score. It will continue to happen until all votes are anonymous or the voting system is just deleted/disabled.

Adam summed things up nicely and now another pointless thread about voting at CSDb comes to a close.
