    So from what I heard, you basically join the group and then as you look at the message history, you upvote all posts you see right? Well I've never been to this but what if you get massive downvotes on your posts? Isn't that a risk? It's not going to be easy to track down who's "BSing" in that group. What about if you don't go on Skype often? Am I not allowed to be in that group? Or what if I link that some of the viewers within the group does not like and/or would normally downvote that if it was some random person posting it on that reddit. Do you guys also use alternative accounts for extra votes or any voting software? Is the upvoting group free or is there a fee for each vote they cast? How big are the groups on average? How many people are in it?

    I'm completely new to this but I see it's a tempting good idea to maybe farm and trade positive karma right?

    Also: Does this trigger Reddit's suspicion on vote gaming from using this group? I don't want to get shadowbanned.

    It would be helpful if I knew how these upvoting groups worked before I tried it, thanks :)

    Dude, you need to join some groups and ask your questions there.
    Each group will have its own rules etc.
    Have a few spare reddit accounts set up and join a few groups to test them
    Generally everybody in the group are after the same thing, so you shouldn't have anything to worry about.
    Can you get dickheads in groups? Of course but that is the risk you take.

    I am not a member of any of these groups so can't advise you further.
