I saw that Toodledo was just down for maintenance so perhaps it just has something to do with that?

Your original account labels you as a good samaritan and the "Transisto (Banned)" account labels you as "Neutral". So if you're officially banned, how are you still posting?

I've always found voting/rating/reputation systems on user forums to be unfairly harsh. I like using the voting system on this site to hide spam posts but as for voting against another user's posts, it seems a bit childish.

Just my $0.02.

Posted by Transisto (Banned):

For instance you would rarely get an upvote from helping someone. And often you would get downvoted from people hating some of your other post, For example, I've just been downvoted for writing a tips/tricks with this account.


Interesting. I've only been in these forums on a regular basis since mid July, and have helped out a handful of users with that little I know, and noticed my rating went up last week to "helpful".

I suspect that it takes a lot of negatives to get to being banned, but I don't know how the rating system works.

What I find much more curious than you being banned, is you keep coming back merely to criticize an app you've quit using. Sorry for asking, but I am curious. Do you have a life?

@Salgud ??? I still use Toodledo, I have invested a lots of time on learning it and made many workarounds for it's problems, I also brought 5-6 3rd party software that sync with Toodledo and subscribed for 3 year upfront.

Thanks for asking.

Transisto,

The reason why your original account was banned is because you received hundreds of negative votes (I don't vote, just users). This was automatic.

Then you used a browser plugin to hack around the ban, by taking advantage of a bug in our forum software. When I notice this, I fixed the bug. Then you created a fake account and cheated by giving yourself a hundred positive votes. When I discovered this, I put in place a simple filter to prevent this from happening again. Thanks for helping me fix the bugs.

And now it seems that you have found another way to cheat the system by making a fake duplicate account for posting. We all know that you have negative feelings towards Toodledo, and I honestly don't know why you are still here. It isn't constructive or helpful for you to keep venting in the forums. I just spent 5 minutes writing this when I could have been working on the next cool feature.
