      Yes and this is still going on now and probably will till there is a fix.
      I have noticed a bunch of good folks and ourselves have been givin' a one or low vote.
      It seemed to happen after I voted in the Challenges and left a positive comment on someones car or after I accepted a challenge from a person with no pic of his car at all? Just in his profile. But have no proof.
      The next day I noticed our car rating went down.Not a big deal,But have been hearing this from a lot of people I chat with on Motortopia and on some Fantastic Cars that deserve a 10 if you could vote it.
      I always vote 5 stars for a car that really looks good! If I don't like it,I just don't vote period!

      I think the only way to fix this is a person will be able to only vote on a Motortopia members car if they leave a comment and letting you know the star rating the user voted for it,Then it has to be approved by the owner and accepted.

      There profile and garage is accesible by clicking on there profile pic or link.
      This way it will keep the Riff Raff at bay and think twice before voting 1 star & lowering someone's rating just for spite whether there just jealous or a car was rated ahead of there own or for a comment in the challeges they didn't particularly like.Possible because they voted against them.

      Hopefully someone in charge of Motortopia can work something out to finally put this problem to rest.

      On this site I think that the total amount of votes is the most Important. I may be wrong but it seems new members with high end cars shoot right to the top with a small numbers of votes. Then as more people vote the ratings drop a bit to reflect all the other cars. I am no web master but that's kind of what I think is going on.But again I have not looked into it as much as you,so I may be way out in left field.
      But there sure is a lot of teenagers with $100k + cars that could be playing games.
      Cheers

      I think this is a good idea that you have to be logged in and leave a coment as to why you voted a 1,2,3,4,or 5 this could certianly help motortopia controll who's voting all these one votes
      and this was started up again because of an album in ROLNGTZ'S garage and if you look at this album from a show he went to it has all kind of cars and trucks of all ages
      and lets not be to quick to blame someone it could be anyone young or old
      the kids today are expressing their art with the newer cars the way we used to do with the old rods and there are sinking a lot of money, technology, talent, & art work into these rides and im glad to see that our sport is going to continue to grow and yes we are starting to use some of their technology on our old rides
      thanks roger

      I CAN SEE ONE VOTING SOME ONE YOU HAD A RUN IN WITH THROUGH CHALLENGES OR SOME THING ELSE
      BUT THESE ARE NEW MEMBERS THEY CAN GET DISCOURAGED EASILY AND JUST QUIT COMING OR DROP OUT.
      MOTORTOPIA HAS TO LOCATE THESE TWO FART HEADS AND ELIMINATE THEM OR FIND A WAY THAT THE FIRST FIVE LOW VOTES DON'T COUNT TO KILL THIS TYPE OF RUDE BEHAVIOR

      welp it's just like the guys that messed with mustang_gt-302's group. it drove him to the point that he completly dropped out of motortopia.

      you can't let the Fart Heads(judge's term.) ruin our fun. but think you found the way to get even with them. give everyone one fives. there cars may not be the nicest or the coolest but means something to there owners. maybe it was a first car or something along those lines you have to be proud of it to post it for all the internet to see. No one desevres a 1 vote.

      I don't mean sound dismissive by saying this, but if some idiot, with nothing better to do, wants to vote 1's on every photo I have posted, then let em knock themselves out. I have too many more important things on my plate to worry about, to let stupidity like voting 1's on any Website, bother me.
