Is there an easy way to manipulate votes?

    No one wants to participate in what appears to be a dead community. I want to be able to alter the votes on individual submissions. I know you can preset the vote value, but I want to go and change each submission, so when you're looking at the home page you will see the votes as random: 13, 7, 11, 34, etc.

    I looked into the DB and it looks like it creates a new table for each vote, and you can't just go in and raise the number?

    In phpmyadmin (in the db) look at "hotaru_posts" if you scroll to the right you will see "post_votes_up" and "post_votes_down"
    - edit those numbers as you wish and kill democracy :p

    you could also edit the number of votes that submitting a post gives in the admin panel. and then you will have posts with any ammount of votes you want.

    edit: that might only work with the up/down voting plugin..
