Description

13 years ago
It seems that users can confirm a bug due to "popular vote" by giving a bug 10 votes of his/her own stash. This is annoying, as users can confirm bugs that might not be bugs at all. Back when users could only give a bug 1 vote or so, this worked fine, but with 10 votes per bug per user, it does not work well at all. Can this be changed so a user can't confirm a bug this way (unless multiple people have voted on it, etc.)?
The general solution to this has been to bump up the "votes to confirm" threshold to something insane enough that it will never actually be reached (see bug 314256). It should certainly be larger than the "votes per user" number, though I'd say the fact that a bug can be confirmed by one person's votes is a non-b.m.o specific Bugzilla bug.
It's also product-specific.  Which product did you experience this in?

While this is something that needs to be addressed in Bugzilla itself, specific products have individual voting settings, and that is what this bug is about. Reopening.

   Checking existing votes in this product for anybody who now has too many total votes.

old rules for mozilla.org: 50 votes per user, 1 vote to confirm, 10 votes per bug.
new rules, 50 votes per user, 20 votes to confirm, 1 vote per bug.

Note to bugzilla devs, the Checking existing votes line at the end really shouldn't
appear.

I also changed the vote rules for Websites.
