Yea or nay?
I think the voting system on 247 is lame and I am proposing a down vote (red arrow) rule for VTScoop. If you down vote someone, man-up and tell them why you down voted them.
I was reading the thread Jordan C created and saw he was down voted for asking a question from an observation. He didn't bash the board, he just asked a question and stated an observation. These are unjustified down votes in my opinion. If you can click an arrow (red or green) then you should be able to chime in with your opinion (pro or con). Just my two cents..
Jordan C, I gave you one green arrow back

I think its ridiculous in regards to star rating that 1 downvote seems to do a lot more damage than 1 upvote. Are they not equal?
Did you hear Hoo got arrested? Thomas Jefferson would be proud!
It says a lot that Jordan is only at a -2. I'm guessing that thread has a ton of votes each way
I am not sure either way.. It seems that they are not equal.
Last time I checked last night he was at -9.. He has moved back up today. But you can see on this thread I have had 5 votes and only three posts.. That's pretty lame. This exemplifies what I am saying. I got two down votes without a reply or an argument as to why the rule should not be implemented.
Check that.. Now its at -1. pretty chicken shit..
I can't believe anybody actually cares about downvotes.
agreed. absolutely ridiculous
If you want to be a 5 Star you need to have 8 upvotes for every 2 down votes. 80%.
For example lets say that Nomad Chad here gets 10 upvotes and 10 downvotes, he's at 50% - that's like 2 star poster.
Guess you both got, but didn't get the point. If you down vote, then say why. I give plenty of votes away but never down. If I disagree with you then I can say it to your "face" without messing with your star status.
The purpose of the down vote is to get rid of trolls. There aren't many trolls on here, but there are a lot of people passing out votes without giving an opinion for or against the opinion, it its being proven in this thread.

Not in the real world, no. But you can set threads for those three stars or above.
If no one cares Dex, then why have votes at all? I'm just saying if you down vote then say why. Pretty straight forward in my opinion.
Not for sure why people get caught up in downvotes, up votes, etc... It's part of the network, if u don't like it there are other boards. There are plenty of reasons why people downvote, up vote, etc and one where an explanation isn't warranted if the so voter chooses so.

You might be putting too much into this....just saying
Think he is just saying grow balls and say something instead of just down voting.
I'm not putting anything into it. The premise is, if you can down vote, then you should be able to say "I downvoted because.."
Like I said, I saw Jordan C get a lot of unjustified down votes for asking a question.
I never down vote. My point is being proven. I see comments, but no one has been able to say "I down voted you because.."
That's pretty lame.
You kicked my ass.. TheWalk!ngSh!tShow pooped in its own hands and rubbed it all over itself..
After seeing this thread I'm just not going to vote anymore except for maybe an up- or down-vote in extreme circumstances. If did still vote I'd probably have down-voted you for being so sensitive about the internet.
Upvoted you for acknowledging my complete and utter domination.
p.s. I managed a league lowest 74.14 this week.
I'm not sensitive at all and my past posts/history backs that up. I started this thread as proposal and so far no one has said yea or nay to the proposal. I rather have someone give an opinion so all can see it rather than an arrow which does not expound on the topic (pro or con). Jordan had a perfect teleological summation: "grow balls and say something instead of just down voting."
We have a rule on the VT/UVA thread on the Blue Board; don't down vote. If we have a problem with a poster, we say so. If we can do it on the VT/UVA board, then why not here?
