I think it’s pretty clear what the outcome is when the bug is abused (the dislike count is negative which causes the like/dislike ratio to shoot way over 100%). I don’t have any reproduction steps but it seems to be with place botting as this place had up to around 8,000 players at the time it happened.
Here is another game with this issue. -80k dislikes is pretty impressive.
It appears this issue extends to favorites too.
This one seems to be fixed:
yea, I think people started leaving enough likes to where the negative became positive
that’s why I included the screenshot
I’ve talked about how this works in another thread before
And of course, a very relevant Tom Scott video
Race condition would probably be very hard to fix, it could at best be sanitised so likes/dislikes can’t go into negative values (and if it does, reset it to 0, or just recount entirely)
at this point people are just posting games actually
