Reporting incorrect countdowns is an indirect activity on Countdown Cow. You can only 'derate' or 'degrade' countdowns by giving them a low 'Rated' 'Date accuracy' score. It's a YouTube-like five star rating system. Low rated countdowns will be moved to the bottom of the search results.
Copyright violations are handled in a different manner. Please consult the copyright violations help text to report a copyright violation.
It's hard. Countdown Cow does not verify any user-added info, therefore incorrect info could be displayed.
However, there are some indicators to help you identify a correct countdown:
It's hard to know for sure, try verifying these indicators:
- Add a clear title in conventional wordings.
- Add a description and add some linked references in your description.
- Tell your friends about the countdown you've added or are planning on adding. Send them the link.
You can add predictions about the future, but try to support them with some strong arguments.
Let's hope predictions encourage new questions, alternatives and corrections.
Yes, but make sure to support them with some strong arguments and/or references

Take a look at the how to add a countdown poster.
A CAPTCHA or Captcha is a type of challenge-response test used in computing to ensure that the response is not generated by a computer. The process usually involves one computer (a server) asking a user to complete a simple test which the computer is able to generate and grade. Because other computers are unable to solve the CAPTCHA, any user entering a correct solution is presumed to be human. Thus, it is sometimes described as a reverse Turing test, because it is administered by a machine and targeted to a human, in contrast to the standard Turing test that is typically administered by a human and targeted to a machine. A common type of CAPTCHA requires that the user type letters or digits from a distorted image that appears on the screen.

So, if a user X for example writes 10 comments, and they all get positive votes, the person's karma will stay positive.
Vice versa, if a user Y has 10 comments and they get negative votes, the person's karma will be negative.
