Please show downvotes
Can you please show who the downvoters are?
For example, this thread was downvoted and there is no reason for that

Just one example

Based on what I've seen happen when people think they know who gave them a downvote, probably go through that entire persons history and downvote everything. People still don't realize that these don't mean anything towards a user, and are only attached to the topics. You could have 1 upvote and 10,000 downvotes on threads you've created and you'd still be at +1.

Could we limit how many downvote one person can give per day? like in which scenario, you need downvote more than 20 per dayTomRFD wrote: ↑ Based on what I've seen happen when people think they know who gave them a downvote, probably go through that entire persons history and downvote everything.

It's been a while since we've reviewed the system but I could see us turning them off for the non-Deal forums soon.

There's a combined up/down cap per day but nobody comes even close to it. Each month there are only a couple of instances of members abusing the system (although some people might say otherwise).

It makes RFD a more hostile community. It is completely unnecessary.
If the deal is hot, people up vote. If deal not hot it just stays normal. A deal may be hot for some and not for others. Some people also end up referring to an item that was on sale 2 to 3 months ago at lower price and then down votes the thread. Hello there is no time machine...
Why is there a need to down vote? I really think it makes this forum and community more hostile as it already is becoming.

I think this is also for downvote as well. upvote or downvote for person or deal? A lot times, i saw people downvote or upvotes for person's efforts or opinion instead of deal.enwhyRFD wrote: ↑I think the upvotes system needs to be redone.
Personally, I use upvotes for 2 things: thanks, and "I found the deal hot". This makes the upvotes a bit skewed, as sometimes you don't really think the deal is hot, just want to thank OP.
Thanks and hot deal should be separated.
As for downvotes, I don't think it's needed, and like others have mentioned, would create hostility.

Who r these members doing the downvoting? Do u acknowledge that these negative ppl who can hid behind anonymity have a deleterious effect on RFD member participation and morale?
