In response to post #117118963.I've personally looked into this before and there was no evidence of abuse of the voting system, so I can say that your theory is incorrect.

But the truth is that there is a sort of guild of crazed punishers :D that as soon as a collection gets positive votes and is above 80%, they arrive with an avalanche of negative votes.
Look at my collection of Fallout 4, it is a great effort not to lose the desire to carry it on because of these people: 1) a new revision comes out 2) I collect about twenty positive votes 3) come those from the guild or people who do not know nothing modding, they don't want to ask for help on the forum to be helped, and leave a negative vote.
WHAT ARE THESE NEGATIVE VOTES FOR? ARE THEY REALLY THE MIRROR OF THE GOODNESS OF ALL THESE COLLECTIONS THAT PASS FOR RUBBISH?
No, the answer is that the votes, as they are managed, are absolutely useless, and a global vote will make the collection even more disgusting, according to what will be printed on the screen.
Each revision of my collection (21 so far) ends with about 40% and red mark, so it is one of the most downloaded and used, thousands of compliments on youtube and people who appreciate the efforts I have made in the last two years towards mods of Nexus, but your score says it sucks.
DOES THIS MAKE SENSE?
It is the third time that I enter into the merits of the question, and I wonder why you do not want to do something that really does justice to the curators but go to privilege the guild of crazed punishers :)
What is needed? that a collection can be voted after it has been playing for a considerable amount of time, that a person takes responsibility for the vote (visible name) and there is a list of who voted but above all MAKES A POST FOR HELP OR A PRIVATE REQUEST AND ONLY AFTER CAN YOU VOTE.
Accounts with 1/2 post or made on purpose to leave a negative vote or an insult on the forum of the collection (there are, look at them), must not have the right to vote.
Furthermore, the truth is that unfortunately, all those who use a collection do not leave the positive vote and it is not possible to counter those idiots who leave a negative vote without reasonable reason. It would be right that if a person plays a collection or a mod for more than five hours, the positive vote, the endorse, starts automatically. Otherwise what's the point?
Am I asking too much and is it too difficult to code?
Perfect, take away the votes and let people confront each other on the forum.
At least let's go back to talking to each other a little and not to click buttons.
Because otherwise it's all useless, and I can't be the only curator to be so bitter.
I apologize for the wall of text and thanks for your attention.
As to why collections get a lot of downvotes as they get more popular, we're hoping that bug reports will shed some light on this. We're considering having Vortex prompt the user to leave a bug report if they downvote a collection to help the curator understand what went wrong.
