Maybe it's time to do something about downvoters (and even all those "first" posters)?




I like being able to upvote things, and I am more than willing to accept the tradeoff of getting downvoted for occasionally putting my foot in my mouth.

I have made two suggestion threads on the appropriate forums in the last couple months. This is the option I would like to see come to pass.

Not the forums the comments section on the shows themselves.

And while yes, upvoting is equally pointless, people's comments wont be auto-deleted when they get up-voted enough.

Apparently people care. I just think it discourages people from having opinions that deviate from the majority.

I like the system and hope it stays the same. basically every video streaming website I've seen has those votes, and its a good way for important and/or comedic information to be quickly seen without having to read a bunch of garbage that was posted. Like the ending of Chaika, I wouldn't have known the next series was coming in October unless I looked at the highest rated post.

Why would it discourage you from having an opinion? Are you that concerned with what others think about what you think? The ONLY thing it does is discourage you from posting your opinion, and even then if your opinion is that different than the majority why would you post something to begin with? Unless you just want the attention.

Because we want to talk with others about our opinions? Basically all you can post in the episodes are quotes from the show or something like that. I'm not sure why you're trying to act all high and mighty about this? Does it hurt you in some way that not everyone agrees with this system?

People are nice or they suck, but it isn't even that simple.
Nice people sometimes suck and sucky people sometimes do really nice things.
Mood has a lot to do with it. And context.

We are not made up of just one element: we all have UP vote in us and DOWN vote in us.
It's what makes us human.

I find it funny that people I have never even seen before on the forums are suddenly appearing to defend the down-voting.
