Self-Voting Crack Down

    To the recent discovery we have banned over 40 users to count as I've seen so far. To remind your self voting even with 4 or small amount of votes are strictly illegal on the site. If you are caught, which you can be through the new graph and ip tracking, we will ban you indefinitely. This is because the new frontage has most popular, not votes. So even 4 votes can turn to 400 votes. Seeing the graphs for anomalies such as a spike in the hour, will lead to suspicion. To repeat again, Self voting is strictly prohibited, and not tolerated, plus will result in a ban after following an investigation. We are cracking down on self voters, as it ruins the experience for others who actually earn votes.

    Also credits to Simon, and other mods which there are so many I can't remember to name.
    P.S. Banning results into deleting of all your projects.
    Have a nice day!

    This is a great step in ensuring a fair playing ground for Powder Toy. Thanks to Simon and all the mods who made this latest sweep possible. Kudos to you all.

    Just so you know, when I was a n00b (which now I'm not) I accidentally self voted (once) on a different account. I hope this does not result in a perm-ban, because I was once a n00b, everybody was once. On the other hand, I completely agree on this, it is very selfish and n00bish to self vote.

    Okay, I understand back then when a person first does random stuff until they hone in on one area.

    Is it possible to do IP bans?

    I do not believe so Mur. As long as you are not the one using their accounts =D.

    My brother (akman300 i think..) may have voted for me, but I tell him not too. Also please don't ban me if he makes something bad which I doubt he will. So yeah, same story here.
