I've been fairly active in the English Language Learners Stack Exchange, which recently went to beta.

Earlier this week, my reputation took a hit when some serial upvoting was reversed (which is fine by me; I'd rather earn my rep than get it as a groupie gift).

Problem is, I woke up this morning, only to discover I was apparently serially upvoted again overnight. About 10 of my questions were upvoted, all within the same hour.

ELL doesn't have moderators yet. As such, I'm not sure how I would flag this, because, unlike an answer or a comment, it's hard to flag an upvote – much less 10 of them.

I'm just wondering what the best course of action would be under such circumstances.

  • Get some moderators appointed :-)? Seriously though, there's no need to flag. It gets automatically reversed as you've noticed. – ben is uǝq backwards Feb 1 '13 at 9:59
  • Moderators like Shog9 and Robert Cataino are still active over there though. So their Meta might be a reasonable place to post such issues. – Bart Feb 1 '13 at 9:59
  • @ben: I believe mod appointments are coming soon; this went public only a day or two ago. I'm not so worried about the points being rolled back; I was more concerned with possible "voting irregularities" if this keeps persisting. – J.R. means 'Just Reinstate' Feb 1 '13 at 10:04

The best course of action is still to use a custom moderator flag. Even if there are no appointed/elected ♦ moderators yet, Community Managers (in the recent past, this was usually Robert Cartaino's job) will keep an eye on the flag queue. If it's really urgent and one of them is available in the new site's main chatroom, I guess you could ping them to inform them of the flag.
