So we're meant to give people upvotes just so they can start downvoting us? What a great deal!

By the way, if you wanna get some free points, introduce yourselves at /v/introductions !

Based on this census https://voat.co/v/AskVoat/comments/122989 about a third of Voaters have the ability to downvote, it's just that we don't like to. I have upvoted 450 comments and downvoted 3, because downvoting leads to a hostile environment and is contrary to the friendly and open-minded discussions we want.

Also, seeing all these newbs: http://i.imgur.com/cGGFN.gif

You are the hero we need, I would upvoat you, but that would be a waste of my 10 upvoats that I'm saving to help others with low CCP.

I plan to wield that downvote power with enthusiasm.

I plan to wield that power with the same enthusiasm I did on reddit. Which is to say almost none at all. After 5 years, I probably made less than 200 downvotes.

Actually, the functionality seems to be to prevent people from making sockpuppets and using those to brigade.

Yep, I like the idea that a new account can only do so much damage. It's just a shame with all the active new arrivals having to hoard their upvoats. I think we could be building content faster if we turned the limit off for a day. We'll get there eventually, I'm sure.

That will come with time. I'm trying to visit as many subverses as I can and contribute there where I can. It's tough to go from a situation where you can't post anything because someone already got there first to a blank slate - so many possibilities.

I actually like this system of needing to have upvotes in order to gain more freedom on Voat. That being said, I need more upvotes.

It sounds like a great method to me

Personally, I'm more than willing to give it a shot. It will at least slow down people from cranking out new accounts to flood threads with.

I find the all the 0 points comments very unnerving. Keep thinking everyone is getting downvoated but everyone is really just (+0|-0).

Seriously though let's try and keep Voat cool for as long as we can so the next migration is to brain-net.
