down with downvoting

esteemed members of ytmnd, general public,

Users can no longer vote on sites they haven't viewed. No more blind voting.

I have compiled a list of users with dupe accounts. There are around 3500, including some fairly well known users.

I have added a feature to allow people to delete their accounts through the user options. This is mainly for people to delete their multiple alts before they get deleted. You have two weeks.

Following in the footsteps of SomethingAwful , the Church of Scientology has sent me a fun cease and desist.


To avoid blind voting of an entire user profiles, YTMND now keeps track of the last 25 sites you've viewed and ignores your votes if you try to vote on a site you haven't recently seen. Hopefully this should help curb the recent tide of down and upvoting.

ALSO EXPECT A MAGICAL UPDATE IN THE NEXT COUPLE DAYS FROM SYNCAN



UPDATE: check out the spiffy new about page.
