When voting rights are removed... what brings them back?by hacker (Priest)
|on Mar 12, 2007 at 04:44 UTC||Need Help??|
I've been wondering for a few years now, at least the last 2 years... why I can no longer vote.
I'm at Curate level, so in theory, I should have 24 votes a day. In reality, I haven't had a single vote in a few years.
In speaking to tye very recently about it, it seems there was an "incident" years back with some mass downvoting that involved suspicion of my account.
I don't think it was ever resolved, but I did change my password and (to my knowledge) it hasn't happened again, but... I've had the ability to vote striken from me.
How long does a penalty like this last? 5 years? Forever?
Is there some sacrifice I have to leave to the gods to get that ability back?
If its permanent, I'll stop asking... but if not, I'd like to be able to vote again.
