Reddit has many algorithms that prevent people from gaming the voting system. However, there are ways to game around this. In order to do that, the account(s) you set up to upvote yourself or others must be privileged enough. 1. Create the new account on a Proxy or VPN IP address. Make sure you don't create it on your own IP or the admins may find out. 2. Go to the subreddit r/FreeKarma4You. They are a free karma subreddit that has no comment karma requirements. They upvote pretty frequently and almost never downvote. 3. Comment in any thread (preferably the first thread in the hot section). 4. Continue to comment in every other thread in the front page. Note: You have a 10 minute cooldown between posts until you get 2 or more comment karma. 5. Do this until you get ~20 karma. Some subreddits require 100 karma to post so if you're not allowed to post, you will need more karma. 6. Now that you have set up your account, you can now use it to upvote and the votes will count. NOTE: In order to enable DOWNVOTE privlidges, you need to do a lot of things. I have an account with 5k comment karma and 2k link karma but still won't let me downvote on other subreddits other than the subreddit I post in on a consistent basis. I post in multiple subreddits but only 1 subreddit lets me downvote. Hope it helps!
