How are veggie pact activities verified?

The Pact community votes on all veggie pact photos. Once a photo has received enough up votes from the Pact community it will be counted as a pact activity. If a veggie pact photo gets a significant number of down votes from the community it will be rejected and will not count towards your pact. To ensure fairness Veggie Pact activity verification is not based on a simple ratio. Once a photo has been rejected by the community it can not be disputed. Veggie Pact activities can be submitted indefinitely until 5 activities are approved for the day.

    How many up votes are required for a veggie to be approved for verification?

    Joan, there is not a set number of up votes that is required by verifying a Veggie Pact activity. The verification system has more to do with the order and timing of votes received. We appreciate your feedback as we work to fine tune this system!

    "If a veggie pact photo gets a significant number of down votes from the community it will be rejected..."
    "Significant" is a laughable word choice. On average, the photos that I've had voted down had 3 down votes and as many as 12 up votes. I'm not how a 12-3 (or even an 8-3) vote represents a significant number of down votes.
    The secrecy behind the algorithm used to finalize the voting process is frustrating. Transparency, please.

    Thanks for the feedback on your experience Earl! The reason that we don't go into exacting detail is a precaution against gaming of the system. We can assure you that the veggie pact algorithm's logic is to ensure fairness in the Pact community and that it has to do with the order of votes received within a certain time frame.
