To our other Moderators:
In the last 48 hours I've had a series of rather unusual upvotes. If they are legit, then obviously I don't mind, but it seems... unusual.
Is there a way to track whether it is all the same user? Or whether they are legit?
Information about who voted for what isn't available to mods, only to SE employees.
Most of the concerns about voter fraud are obviously with revenge or serial downvoting, not upvoting. There's a script that runs to catch this stuff, but I don't know if it looks at upvotes or not. The possibility of many upvotes on the same user triggering this system has been raised. However, these votes are so close together that I suspect this isn't a case of someone liking one of your questions/answers and thinking, "I wonder what other cool stuff zenbike has written here" and checking out your content.
I suggest waiting a few days to see if these votes are compensated for by the automagic vote-checker 'bot.
It could very well be me... On some other sites I vote a lot (note the blurb in my profile, and Freiheit may recall some discussion of voting on the ServerFault chat), and over the past few days I've been reading a lot of the questions I missed on bikes.SE - and voting as I go.
Since you answer a lot of questions, you got a lot of upvotes. I don't pay close attention to who wrote the answer when I vote, just whether I think it's an ok answer, so I didn't realize how many times I'd voted for one of your answers.
I have no idea if the automatic vote fraud system will count them as fraud or not... if so, sorry!
I'm not sure what it indicates, but I've also read and voted on a bunch of questions on the scifi.SE site over the past week, but over there the big (very big) concern was that I voted down a couple of questions and people seemed unhappy about it.
EDIT: yeah, looking at your list of newest answers, I had voted on most of them, so it was probably me that did it.
