I didn't figure that I was that important, but I guess now that I've voted on a few debates to correct them, now a few of my own debates are being bombed:

http://www.debate.org...

http://www.debate.org...

http://www.debate.org...

In two of them, my opponent forfeited multiple times, and then the first one, I'm not entirely sure if it was bombed, but I definitely thought I won.

And, oddly enough, in every debate, I'm losing by about 5 points (6 points in the one on killing an innocent). I'm sure it's probably bombing though, because the 3 newest losses just kind of came out of nowhere.

Who all was online when this happened? Did you look?

People have to be online to vote.

I would have taken a record, but I wasn't paying close enough attention at the time.

Not necessarily.

See the "my status" thing below "settings?" Whoever is doing is can easily change their status to offline.

I always thought that feature was useless....

That's weird. Let me try that.

You're right. It works. However, I dont' expect votebombers to know how to do that (you just kind of pointed that out).

Why not? I did just point it out; however: 1: that doesn't mean they didn't do it previous to me mentioning it; 2: even if I did mention it, they can still use it, and none of us will know.

Well then, I suppose it's very likely that people know about it now; Luckily, most of my losses have been cleared up for now, except for http://www.debate.org..., http://www.debate.org..., and http://www.debate.org....

The real question is though, what's the purpose of the bombing; I figured that I would be the last person anyone would go after; I don't have that fantastic of a record, and I'm not very well-known on DDO; it's like they're just choosing random people and going to town; and since they can go 'offline' at will, it really puts anyone and everyone at risk.

I didn't know that it really worked. I though you went back online as soon as you did something.

I really do wish that we had the feature that showed who voted for what, or at least a mandatory RFD feature; but of course, we've all heard those ideas before.

How would you know if they knew? Unless they've mentioned it, I'm not sure how, since there's no way to differentiate being on "appear offline" from actually being offline.
