And red, @biggie does not have a paid account but can see invisible votes, so the question you gave as an answer is invalid. Get back on that wagon

The irony of it is whenever I give a down-vote or an up-vote I almost ALWAYS combine it with a like/thank/dislike/agree/disagree so it's almost NEVER anonymous when I vote. That's why he doesn't have a leg to stand on, and it's why I'm 100% IN FAVOUR of voting not being anonymous. I stand by every single up-vote and down-vote. There's no sub-plots or shenanigans going on here. But, like you, I would be interested to know who gives the anonymous down-votes. Being a pillar of the Namepros community @biggie must have special access like Donald Trump has his special master review granted by United States District Court for the Southern District of Florida Judge Aileen M. Cannon. Why don't we ask her? (oops, that would be answering a question with a question). Right, no more alcohol for redemo tonight.

Hi

i had already started a thread on this subject here:
https://www.namepros.com/threads/how-to-view-who-gave-negative-points-to-your-posts.1273835/

if you view my "alerts" profile you can see the numerous downvotes recently given by one member in particular.

imo....
Gave you minus 6 votes for this post, and publicly disagreed with it too.
https://www.namepros.com/threads/ask-a-moderator-anything-publicly.1265676/post-8696220. If you don't believe in democracy then move to North Korea, or try being more constructive. People get down-voted for unpopular posts, just as they get up-voted for popular posts. I get down-voted and up-voted too. That's life. The difference is that I'm NOT against down-voting, just think it should be linked to a username so you can debate WHY the down-votes were given. I haven't broken any Namepros rules, and I stand by my voting. The mod team can clearly see that I don't single out any members, you included @biggie, for unfair down-voting. That's a fact.

Maybe you should spend less time worrying about who's voting your posts up/down and more time improving the quality and delivery of your posts? But I highly doubt that will happen.

Actually, you didn't, after reviewing that post, the -6 came from 3 different members. Please do not instigate or antagonize members. If that happens again, we'll have to issue your account an infraction.

It seems that you both have some tension between each other that's been going back and forth a while.

We would advise that you choose to stop engaging the members posts, knowing, premeditatedly, that it's going to cause problems. Since we all know that you know how agitated it makes the member now, moving forward, any aggressive downvoting on that specific members posts (from today's date, moving forward) will be deemed harassment and stalking.

Your account has been noted so other moderator teams are aware of this behavior.

Wow, wow, wow, I'm not having that! There's no instigation or infraction on my part. I made an honest mistake on that post. But the fact THREE members down-voted it shows 100% I'm not doing anything wrong. The root cause of the problem is that you're singling out one member, which is @biggie, for privileged access to voting identities, and it's simply not fair. But those are your rules, and it's your forum. So I relent.

Tension? Not at all, we're having a blossoming bromance.

So you're telling me not to engage with @biggie in any way? That's fine, I'm happy to do that from this moment.

Has his account been noted too? That would be called fairness, which is all I'm asking for. Fairness. Anyway, I've had enough of this. Got better things to do. Case closed.

Hi Mods,

Sooo, I just went to check some of my old posts and found I can only go back 10 pages.
When I click the "view older results" button I get

NamePros Community​

No results found.

Have I missed something or has all my posting data except for 10 pages been expunged / deleted?
Having my prior post data base is very important to me, (and others, I'm sure) and I'd like to know where to reach it.

Thank you.

Peace,
Kenny

Perhaps @Paul can help?
This deserves an answer.

Seriously.

Thank you.

Agree with Kenny, I can barely remember what happened yesterday so need a memory jog from the old posts sometimes.

The tl;dr is that search is hard. There’s a trade off between performance and number of pages. Currently, we cap it at 10 pages of results. We may increase this in the future, but it’s unlikely you’ll be able to jump to an arbitrary page if we do; you’ll need to navigate through each page sequentially.

what tools do you have to check shill bidding on domain auctions here at namepros.
what tools do you have to check irresponsible bidding / bluff bidding (wherein the bidder has no intention of buying a domain but keep on bidding irresponsibly inflating the price and if he/she wins there is no intention of paying for it) on domain auctions here at namepros.
do accounts with zero trade ratings/feedbacks be allowed to participate in auctions ?

Moderators are generally able to see when two accounts are being used from the same computer, even if one or both are using a VPN. Oftentimes, such accounts will be flagged even before they post. I don’t want to get into too much more detail than that.

That being said, it’s always going to be a game of cat and mouse. As our technology improves, nefarious individuals find new ways to circumvent it. Our last line of defense will always be you: if you see something suspicious, report it. If moderators aren’t able to find concrete evidence, they’ll escalate it to the tech team. We’ll then look over very detailed logs in search of anything amiss.

You can, but reporting it is fine, too. If you report it, it's likely to be looked into faster than if you DM a single staff member.

The biggest caveat with reporting is that our response to you has to fit in a small box, so it'll be brief and won't contain any details. You'll likely just receive a canned response regardless of how long staff spent investigating the issue. If you'd like more details, you can always follow up with a DM.
