Most specifically, a bunch of Hinata_hyuuga images keep getting downvoted like crazy and anyone who brings it up seems to get reported and downvoted for no reason.

We're aware, but the most we can do about the reports is unflag them.

People just can't be trusted to not be retarded. There are people who go around down-voting every image and every comment they see for no reason.

Filters.
Registered users the site can down-vote.
Past that, check IP addresses, so only a single vote could be cast for each.

They're quite simple to implement normally, though I don't know if you check for these. And I'm sure you could also find one or two other ways to ensure this doesn't occur. Though it does require it to be done on the programmer's end.

I think it already does that.

You get one vote. You can't create a second account to vote again without something else. Like say, dynamic IP? Proxies? etc. Which is what they are doing.

It might have actually been more effective to do what Danbooru does and make it so only certain accounts can vote, but that also defeats any purpose of having the scores at all in its own way.
