The total number of votes on my gallery has been 1,096 for a couple of weeks now... until yesterday, that is, when it dropped to 1,092. This doesn't bother me at all, but I'm quite intrigued as to how it can happen. Any ideas?

In reply to jon: maybe some user accounts were deleted including all relevent information votes commets etc... not sure if this would happen but maybe UKC members left or potential duplicate accounts were deleted etc.


Just a guess,

I think there's some sort of algorithm for automatically deleting 'rogue' votes - the sort of person who votes 1 for everything in a user's gallery etc.

In reply to lm610:

Yes, I wondered if this could be the reason.

In reply to Toreador:

Never occurred to me that this existed. However on both occasions that this has happened, the difference has only been three or four votes.

In reply to Toreador: Oh yes thanks, I can see how this would be useful. As in people creating multiple profiles for the purpose of pulling votes down. Initially I thought you were suggesting we weren't allowed to vote how we liked.

Of course that was 6 years ago, they might not do it any more for all I know
