  1. Settings for Voting Method 1: Up and Down Voting.
    • Votes to publish: Default is set to 5. This means that a story has to acquire 5 votes before it is moved from the NEW section to the PUBLISHED. If set to 1, and in the Submit settings “Auto Vote” is set to true, then the article is automatically published upon submission.
    • Negative Votes Story Discard: default setting is 0. If set to 1, stories with enough down votes will be discarded. A formula for determining what gets buried is stored (can also be modified); It defaults to discarding stories with 3 times more downvotes than upvotes.
  2. Settings for Voting Method 2: 5 Star Ratings.
    • Rating To Publish: How many star rating votes will publish a story? is set to 3 by default.
  3. Settings for Method 3: Karma.
    • Karma to publish: Minimum karma value before story is sent to the front page. Default is 100
  4. Settings that apply to all three Voting methods:
    • Days to publish: default is 10, the number of days after which a story that did not acquire the set number of Votes to publish, will not be eligible to be published, even if it acquired the required number of Votes to Publish!
    • Votes Allowed from one IP: This setting is turned on, set to 1, by default to prevent users from voting from multiple registered accounts from the same computer network. Set it to 0 = disable feature, to allow multiple voting from same IP.
