On this site. I cite myself as an example. Now I have to complete 3 debates to even vote on these debates. This is ridiculous. I can provide my cellphone number.

I assure you I am a great voter. I read debates. I vote nonbiasely. I have taken the side of a debater I have disagreed with. Prove me wrong and help me have my first debate!

Obviously the precaution was put into practice to prevent idiots from making uneducated decisions and to keep people from creating multiple accounts and just voting for themselves. While the three debate requirement may be irritating and inconvenient, it is for the betterment of DDO society.
I eagerly await your reply

That actually makes a lot of sense. I've seen plenty of random vote bombing where people just appear out of the blue and vote on a topic. Why not just make a time restraint or something else?

Thank you for your quick response.
When you go to create a debate, there IS an option to put a time limit on voting, but not everyone chooses to put the time limit on, and thus it has proved to be ineffective in preventing vote-bombers.
Please vote CON :)

I honestly can't think of another way to test it. Then again, there are stupid people irregardless who will vote without thinking. "Oh I'm an atheist, I'll vote on this", so the question is, how much votebombing can be stopped?

Vote pro because he's awesome.

Pro has no alternative that can be effective and there is no other obvious alternative, therefore you should vote pro... but only if you have participated in three or more debates. :)

You could save some time by just challenging me with your defending God debate... won't help your win ratio tho =P

Now that this one is almost done, I have to go look up some ways to defend god so some proud atheist will quickly debate me. I wonder what debate I can do after that.

As we've seen here on DDO, that obviously worked So0o0o00o0o0oo well.

Well, I just went to a random debate from a few months ago and you DID vote on it lol so it's not true that you "haven't voted on a single one." Granted you did vote in my favor :P I thought I specifically remembered your username, but truth be told I have no desire to go through all of my debates right now (I can't believe you did!) lol but regardless I believe you :) Sorry for the misunderstanding.

BS. I've never votebombed. Besides, I just checked your debates, I've yet to vote on a single one.

LiquidLiquid has v-bombed me in the past if I remember correctly. Maybe even excessively lol.

@ Grape, my point was now toward new members only. My point was that some folks don't like debating, and just like to read debates.

This might mean I might have to make the other two debates serious! I'll just make them a typical religious debate or something else I don't take too seriously.
