I don’t think this is the way communities want to win or gain an unfair advantage. Is the voting system cheatable? Yes, just like every other system, but luckily we are decent people and since there is no perfect system, we should ensure that the voting shows a valid result at least on the our side. After all, that’s the only way it makes sense. Otherwise, the ranking of the participants will only reflect who made the best voting bot or who managed to cheat the system the best? Maybe I am thinking different but yeah I like fair play. I’d rather be the last with fair than first in an unfair play. :slightly_smiling_face:

i don’t feel like there should be judgement or whatever for anyone who voted more than once because clearly it’s allowed. but it is some context into the contest itself. personally i don’t care who wins, but i think the exposure for Discourse as a forum option with other software is great, and discussion of critical comparison with other forum platforms is worthwhile.

Tried using nodeBB for the first time just to reply to that topic, not a fan :slightly_frowning_face:

It has a more “old reddit” feel and look which I don’t like at all very much

It’s pretty funny that both forums are complaining about each other though, could be just me, but I really find it amusing you go to nodebb and they’re comparing us to flarum and saying we suck, and vice versa for here :smile:

Well if it has the feel of an old software, it definitely seems clunky and not worth using.

CDCK does not condone cheating our way into winning an online beauty pageant.

If you feel like voting… go ahead and vote once and only once.
