@Quentin5 maybe learn the definition of desperate before using it again.
@hvwozq maybe stop contradicting yourself in this thread, now you will deny your doing it, then i will point out examples then you will explain them away then the cycle continues :facepalm:

I think upvoting is a good way to show one's general appreciation with a post. An explanation isn't necessary but, of course, you can always give it by way of a Reply.
I rather post a thank you. The abuse of down voting has given the entire voting system no credibility in my opinion. I rather not participate. I've stopped voting since they switched to phpBB

@WorldIRC - if you can remove down votes, I would greatly appreciate if you removing my one down vote, since I have no idea of how that was given.

Yeah, why don't you go ahead and point out examples? You can't even read. If I had PMed @TomRFD and had he said No, then what I am doing here would be desperation. If I wanted my downvoting ability back, I would PM him, not whine here like some people come here to do.

While you are at it, learn the difference between your and you're as well.

Another waste of forum space. No wonder you have almost 13k posts in ~3.5 years.
The only reason I am even replying to your nonsense is because I can't downvote. :lol:

Moderators cannot remove downvotes, you can message TomRFD and he will take care of it for you.

No, I can only see who gave him the downvotes.

I see, and it would be most inefficient to check every RFD member to see who is the recipient of his downvote Smiling Face With Open Mouth And Smiling Eyes

Thanks for the clarification. I thought mods could do it too. But IIRC it was TomRFD who reset my downvote count.

(In case anyone cares, I downvoted a few posts that were clear violations of the RFD rules, e.g. blatant spam. Upon reflection there was no need to do that; Reporting them should have been sufficient.)

I didn't know there was a thread on this. It's got plenty of info... but here's some feedback.
There are some posts that I have created, that had a down vote or two for them.
I can understand that some might not agree to what was said, but I generally provide sound advice.

The advice I provide, usually are to help them through whatever it is or help a decision/process.
But some posters, they down vote you for apparently not much of a reason...
If it's advice that you don't want to take, it may be exactly what the other person needed...

I think I "like" the other system better where it had a "like" button, there's no upvote/downvote.
If you like it, people use that not only for "liking" the post, but to use that tool to refer back to it.
A reference tool so they can get back into review/re-reading the information that may have helped them.

TLDR - My feedback basically is, I think the upvote/downvote system works, but not ideal.
I suggest to see if there is an option to go to the "like" instead. It'll be neutral, non detrimental.

Thanks to RFD for helping me with spending money, I feel so poor now!

Ignore the system and don't participate.

@TomRFD - if you find the time, please erase my single down vote, I hope I didn't do anyone an injustice by down voting accidentally

Now that you mention it, I do regret giving my 6 downvotes. I feel like a dick. If I feel strongly about a post, I should've engaged the poster directly rather than hiding behind a downvote. I'll let others be the jerks going forward.
