How Reddit Determin Submission’s Score?

A submission’s score = (No. of Upvotes) – (No. of Downvotes)

Lets take an example to understand submission scor, consider If 40 users like the submission (links or text) and 25 users dislike it then the submission score will 15.

But these votes are not the real numbers, reddit has made them “fuzzed”, in order to prevent spamming. Whatever there are 10 upvotes and 15 downvotes or 7 upvotes and 2 downvotes All I wanted to say is that all the point scoring is correct but calculated total votes are fuzzed.

Why Don’t My Submissions Show up on the New Page?

Be careful while posting, as I earlier said that reddit has been equipped with a spam filter algorithm that is fully capable and designed to detect and remove the spam bots automatically.
