Default Altername/Spam accounts?

Idk if this is the right place for this type of discussion, but I couldn't help but notice recently that there were a good amount of accounts being made that were all pretty much identical to one another, as in voting for the same people in voice compares, having the same favorite VA's and same favorite characters, and I was kind of wondering what that was all about.

examples:
http://www.behindthevoiceactors.com/...otHeaded-Dude/
http://www.behindthevoiceactors.com/...ar-Slithereen/
http://www.behindthevoiceactors.com/members/BaneLycan/
http://www.behindthevoiceactors.com/members/Zeus-King/
http://www.behindthevoiceactors.com/...kken-Lord-God/
http://www.behindthevoiceactors.com/...s/Doomstroyer/

and there are plenty more apparently.

Oops, I spelled "alternate" wrong.

Yeah, we've noticed this. It sucks but it seems to be a dynamic IP so it's tricky to deal with. Will be nipped in the bud though.

Many of them voted on the Carnage compare. As awesome as DBB is, that lead is absurd: http://www.behindthevoiceactors.com/...r-Man/Carnage/

Same with Dormammu: http://www.behindthevoiceactors.com/...ange/Dormammu/

Not to mention both their VA pages having these roles at a huge lead in the favorite character page. I don't think Carnage would dwarf Captain Rex or Dormammu to Medic.

Also, I'd imagine Sagat would be in the lead for Isaac here, but that number is just crazy: http://www.behindthevoiceactors.com/...-Singleton-Jr/

Glad I'm not the only one who noticed that. That always did strike me as something really odd especially looking at the poll results. I tend to look at the numbers a lot & I picked up on this sometime earlier this year.

See back around late 2015 The poll results in the Carnage compare were pretty balanced. Then comes 2016 & 2017 and he's ahead by a huge margin. Doesn't seem as natural. The one that sticked out the most was the Dormammu page. Being ahead of second place by over 150 votes is pretty unheard of.

I also noticed the same accounts have rigged the Lord Zedd VC in favor of Robert Axelrod. I mean I figured he would be in the lead anyway, but by 201 votes? That seems to be a lot for a VC that doesn't seem to get too much attention

That one is definitely rigged & it sticks out the most compared to all the other voice compares. I know the admins will fix this issue but I reckon it would be a good idea to find more of these where the votes have been manipulated. As it stands, there are 4 pages where it's completely guaranteed that the voting polls have been rigged & or manipulated.

Oh and here are the number of votes on the Sagat voice compare for Isaac for reference


http://www.behindthevoiceactors.com/...Fighter/Sagat/

196 total votes. Isaac has 192 of them.

Shredder's character page has been favorited a ton too: http://www.behindthevoiceactors.com/...TMNT/Shredder/

Not sure if Scottie's lead is hacked or real?

I thought he was leading a couple years ago though. Maybe not by that much?

I'm pretty sure all of this (i.e. every example cited in this thread) is coming from the same person. He's either insanely dedicated or has bots doing it for him.
