Why would someone downvote such an informational post? :(

Just want to point out that this type of comment is one reason why (ignoring vote manipulation) reddit disabled the ability to view downvotes.

I honestly don't mind, but there isn't is.

I like it much more, I feel like I get both sides of the story now.

Exactly! Just two little numbers can tell a lot about a post, way more than just a popularity score alone.

Or an orange †

I tried to downvoat you just so you could see it. However I am new here, so I've got to comment 100 times before I'm allowed to downvoat. So fuck it...have an upvoat! :D

I know, right? One of the best parts about this place. Hope they never get the stupid idea to remove it.

So @atko, if you're reading this, I kindly request that you ponder that thought already right now, clamp a lid on that shit, and then never speak of it again. Sound like a plan?

Please and thank you :)

It's a great idea! I wonder how database intensive it is though. I am excited about the text formatting options!

Store 2 numbers instead of one? That's constant linear time, baby!

You're giving me flashbacks now. I thought I had worked through that period of my life.

Oh shit. I forgot about that.

Looking back they really did succumb to the "feels" didn't they?

The changing of upvotes/downvotes over at that other site simply makes it easier to manipulate votes in comments.

Also makes popular adverts appear less controversial. A simple majority rules system. A lot of reasons they did that, and none of them good.

That and the new user voat limits are two of my favorite features, the community is really what makes this please so special though.

Even though I am new myself, I like the new user limit. I bet it keeps out casual spammers.

I love the idea of gated contributions. Wowhead did something similar a few years ago, and it cut back a lot on random spam.
