I only ever upvote, so I don't miss the ability to downvote, but I do wish I could show my appreciation/approval a little more freely on this site.

I like how the system keeps voting in check. You get enough for the most popular things to reach the top, without drowning out everything else. You're going to be less likely to throw upvotes at everyone just for making basic responses or memes (something that absolutely plagues most forums), and more likely to upvote things that are more worthy.

I hope the system stays as is, personally.

Making you contribute to have downvoating privileges is definitely a smart move; since I've come to Voat, I've come to appreciate the need to avoid downvoating things without thinking. But there have definitely been a couple of submissions I've wished I could downvoat already for various reasons.
