Forums - Website Topics - Can't we just get rid of this like/dislike system ?

The funniest part is that with people having subs double, triple and even quadruple the weight of a vote just one golden sub dislike can basically hide any post away, lol.
This thing is a complete mess.

And people wonders why this forum is going belly up . I was thinking The voting was the result of crazy Fanboys with alts downvoting , but this makes sense now. Having downvotes is like a badge  of honor in There. You upset the Fanboys and you get a shit ton of downvotes then its just the usual circlejerk. Its pay to win and rewarding the packs of Fanboys of this site.

Lmao this sounds só fucking bad, pay to win in this case pay to upgrade my status lol

This post of yours is bizarre , probably the ONLY One i see from you [Machina] since years and years.

Nah, Machina is doing fine. You, on the other hand, just stop by every now and then to complain about imaginary things.

Here is the short list of all supporters. Tell us who the fanboys are.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

I think I saw that article. All the comments in red were some non sensical fanboy bullshit which proves that the system actually works.

You seriously think people are paying money just so they can downvote their alt accounts on the articles?

After you have looked over the list of supporters you shouldn't be baffled anymore. It's easily verifiable that Machina was right about what he said.

And yes, I can tell people who just complain that their complaints don't have merit. I'll keep telling it how it is and when I complain about something myself, I cite concrete examples and provide links when necessary. After you have looked over the list of supporters, do you still believe that you had any justification for what you said?

Dude, half the non staff users from that list i dont even know, no One should have double, triple or Four Times downvoting power even If you think they are the best users ever. And yes , Fanboys with hurt fellings Will obviously downvote you even If your posts make perfect sense or not, If There is some on that list i dont know or care. If downvote hiding posts is só good why not implement it in main fórum :D i wonder What the result Will BE...

And no, you dont keep telling how it is, you keep telling how YOU think it is.  I seriously dont know how the mod team dont is begging you to go to moderation already after years and years watching your amazing "hard 100% correct facts" of walls of text with concrect 100% correct unbiased evidence you provide every month.

Sounds like you still believe that there was justification for what you said initially.

I'd sooner look at ways the system can be improved, rather than scrap it altogether. For example, increasing the amount needed for a comment to be hidden. Or removing the anonymity attached to up and downvoting.

The theory behind the increased voting power for people who donate to the site is that said people are more likely to be good, upstanding members of the community who want to improve the site, and so are likely to only downvote posts that are genuinely deserving of it. Not everyone, sure, but the vast majority I'd hope.

I'd say make it -10 instead of -5 to make them hidden and see how that goes. 

Or let it be reviewed by a mod after it got a certtain amount of downvotes in order to make it hidden,i do not want to put even more work into their hands but it could be the fairest method.

On a sidenote: Getting some downvotes is not the end of the world and if it happens frequently you should consider your own posting habits to be rather negative?Getting upset about likes and dislikes is pretty silly.
