Hello guys, there is a feature missing that is desperately needed on DDO to fight votebombs.
I propose we have a way of reporting a vote. This way, we do not need the million threads that say, "MY DEBATE WAS VOTEBOMBED" or "POST VOTEBOMBED DEBATES HERE."

In addition, we also need "vote moderators" that will remove suspected votebombs by making everything that person voted for "tie" as well as remove all counter-bombs.

We only really need 1 thread for it. People just keep making additional ones.

agree. Also, the moderators should be able to merge all those threads together--right?

Juggle is not going to have active mods, so things like thread merging is probably never going to happen.

Yeah. We need better moderation. I am a moderator on numerous websites and am appauled at some of the things I see...although I do like this website (maybe a bit addicted)

you can report a vote by either reporting the debate the vote bomb happened, or report the profile that vote bombed.
But yes it is annoying that people keep making new threads.

You can report a vote bomb just report the debate and note it in the comment. You can also simply increase your participation and make the vote bombs a moot point. It is only because debates are usually settled by 1-3 votes that one 7-bomb makes any difference. Note that you are rarely actually disputing the actual seven points anyway and at most are arguing that there are 2-4 excess points attributed. That really is not something to get worked up over.

A feature thats needed is having juggle appoint member mods who remain anonymous.

I nominate:

Roy Latham
J. Kenyon
Cody Frank

I agree 100% with that list. They're all great characters.

That is pretty amusing considering the public stances of Kenyon, Cody and TV on liberty and state/government.

Innomen has actually vote-bombed one of my debates before.

To be honest, I wouldn't think J.Kenyon would be a good moderator. He's a great debater and a respectful member of the website, but he can be a huge d!ck sometimes.

In no way a vote bomb. You deserved to win the debate, sure, but it wasn't such a domination that all dissenting voters can be described as vote-bombers (Especially as he gave both parties 3 points!)
