I've been frozen twice now in the last week, a mod told me it was from vote downs.

The number of votes I went down was about 10.

Does this sound right to you guys?

Is this the vote down policy?

Thanks

The only answer the mods will give is moving this to WhatIf...

20 votes is really only 7 people if you're the thread starter.

A system like that makes posting about politics and similar topics risky even if you aren't trolling.

I am not in favor of people being frozen for vote downs, but if you're going to do it make it net votes and not just 20 vote downs which could only be seven vote downs if you're the thread starter.

The freeze system is messed up. I was frozen yesterday for the first time. My votes hasn't changed and didn't post anything offensive. Wtf Phone Post

I think the whole system is buggy, its automated I assume?

by buggy I mean 'fucking broken'

Two days ago I had -85, I got frozen for 24 hours and came back to -68

whats hilarious is a paying member of the site can be kicked off the site by free use members for simply saying something they disagree with regardless of it breaking the terms of service

WHAT THE FUCK? did someone ever think about that?

MightMakesRight - 20 down votes in 24 hours and you're froze.

The number next to your name has nothing to do with it.

If you get 10 up votes and 20 down votes in 24 hours your total will only be 10 votes less, but you'll still get froze.

It's a shit system.
Not true for blue namers just blacks. Phone Post

I don't know exactly how the system works, but I would guess that vote-ups don't cancel out vote-downs when it comes to getting frozen. If so you can be frozen from vote-downs without a huge drop in your rating.

Correct, they do not cancel each other out. So if someone with +200 karma wakes up with a wild hair up their ass to be super-offensive, they don't need to be voted down 200 times plus an addition 20 to get frozen.

OP, It seems to me like you want to be frozen from vote downs, and are purposfully instigating it.

You are aware that people tend to vote down people who make threads complaining about being voted down. So what do you do? You make a thread complaing about the voting system, and people vote you down enough for you to be frozen.

Do you learn from this? Nope. You make this thread which is in the same vein.

*takes deep breath*

Imagine I gave away free cheese pizza & sold pepperoni pizza, some guy comes in and pays for a pepperoni pizza and 5 guys eating free cheese pizza dont like the color of his shoes so they take his pizza away from him, and I, the pizza parlor owner, created the environment & sanction this behavior as a form of pizza parlor patron administration

lol

hey man. Your issue isn't ignored. I am working on getting it changed.

couple of options looknig at

1.) making it total karma -20 instead of just -20 in vote downs for the 24 hr period would make a freeze

2.) changing the OP vote back to just 1 instead of 3, and changing the magic number somewhere in between 10-20, not sure
