I would say, it looks like people usually get downvoted for saying very disagreeable, some times stupid things.
But I've definitely seen comments getting downvoted for reasons I couldn't even understand. That is, not based on whether I agree or disagree with the comment, but couldn't even understand from the perspective of the people voting it down.
I liked this comment and almost decided against replying to it
I'd say it's like 70%-80% crap that is downvoted, no longer have to worry about spambots in articles anymore either, but I too have seen comments downvoted from all sides that have made me think "Eh, why?" Lol.
If it's a truly garbage comment though, to the point where, it breaks rules, we would surely deal with it.
Idk though, imagine if we had a similar system for threads, downvotes on posts which hid them, is there a justifiable reason for the distinction of having them in articles but not threads?
*Gets two likes*
I'll try to keep an open mind, I'll watch how this thread goes, I doubt we can even change anything though without Talon around, I will not be moved in my position that the extra voting power needs to be removed from supporters though.
Unfortunately hurts Staff which I don't want to do though.
If this thread is going against forum rules in anyway or going to make hassle Ryuu you can lock it bro, i dont mean to make any hassle for the staff or mods with this thread.
Thread isn't against the rules.
Not really a hassle, it's just a simple discussion, though I don't think we can do anything about it in the near future no matter what way the poll goes and if it goes in the way of keeping them then no harm done, I'll go with what the community wants at the end of the day.
Buut if it goes in the direction of removing them, which I would be in favour of, I can't help but feel bad about it removing a perk from the Supporter program which goes to funding Staff, I would simply hope that most users are signed up out of the goodness of their hearts and cause they want to support the Staff
