    You can vote on your own deck.

    Moreover, if you undo and reapply your own vote on a deck, that vote stacks towards the deck score.

    That is, undoing a vote does not apply a -1 on the deck score.

    We went with a change to how sites normally do deck scoring and here's the reasoning behind it.

    Most sites score decks starting at 1. The reason for starting at 1 is you assume that someone would just upvote their own creation so you do that automatically and prevent them from adding an additional vote.

    We've instead started at 0 and given creators the option to vote on their own deck. The way I see it, if someone is just posting their deck here to keep for themselves or to share with a couple of friends easily, they probably aren't ever going to get any votes nor would they care to vote on it themselves. By keeping it at 0, people can easily see that it's not worth going into, there isn't likely to be a guide.

    Now if you've put the time into writing a deck guide, give your own deck an upvote and it shows people "hey this might be worth checking out".

    It's a big test really, if it ends up not working out, we'll go back to a system where stuff starts at 1 and the creator cannot vote on it.

    As far as your bug goes though, I'm unable to replicate it. Undoing my own vote on my own deck is removing it. Can you provide me a link to a deck where you believe the count is bugged so I can investigate this further?

    Okay never mind, I found the bug after someone pointed it out in a different way. I'll get this fixed and get votes recalculated. Thanks!

    This has been fixed
