Maybe it's time to do something about downvoters (and even all those "first" posters)? So I'm posting this in case Crunchyroll agrees....

1. Get rid of the dislike ~ thumbs down ~ option. If someone disagrees with a comment, they can post an opposing view and readers can upvote whichever position they choose.

2. Extend the time that commenting is blocked to 20 minutes after the video has started. At least that way, people will be more likely to have actually watched the episode — or at least some of it?

Unrelated to this issue, but would it be possible to include a link to the forum thread with the series or episode info so that it would be easy to get here from there?

Of course, we can always upvote until a comment gets back to being +1. But that is bothersome. I really enjoy reading everyone's comments and kind of think that even legitimately intended 'thumbs down' votes can be rude or even hurt someone's feelings. And, something really offensive can be reported to the moderators.

Anyone else?

1 is the best and only choice, but it won't happen. I don't mind the downvoters. Pricks will be pricks. They will find a new medium to be trolls.

As this pertains to the function of CR, and not anime itself, shouldn't this be in the "Help!" section of the forum, as is this similar thread?:

never actually downvoted or upvoted any comment, only ever made comments or reported some for spamming go to this something something site make so and so much money.

its just someones opinion I don't really see the point of the thumbs up and down thing, and who actually reads comments before watching? wouldn't that just ruin some part of the watching experience with spoilers and whatnot?

Thanks. I did a search for various forms of downvoting but didn't catch the thread you posted. I'll check it out.

Being able to "thumbs up" is arguably just as pointless, and spammers can use that to their advantage by utilizing the function of the most "liked" being put at the top of the list. If people aren't allowed to "dislike," I don't see much point to "liking." Other than giving a mild illusion that no one particularly disagrees, that is. Ignorance is supposed to be bliss; however, I would think that most can handle other people's dissatisfaction, and accept that the "thumbs down" and "thumbs up" buttons can and will be abused.

At the very least, the "thumbs down" probably helps avoid some flame wars. Instead of only being able to make acidic comments to express discontent, there's an option of simply clicking "dislike".

I really don't see it as that big of an issue. Most of the time when I see a comment downvoted to oblivion it's because the person is going out of their way to be a complete asshole.

Besides, at the end of the day they are just imaginary points.
