12/7/2019 - Removing Downvotes on the Forum

Recommended Posts

An addendum to the announcement:

I imagined it would be easy to find a list of all users with negative reputation and set them all to 0 rep, but I haven't been able to do so yet. It may be a few days before all users with negative reputation are reset to 0.

In the meantime, if you have negative reputation and would like it reset to 0, please send a private message to myself or @Chief Wiggum. Thank you.

Welcome to a clone of Facebook and Twitter, Will Youtube Join in on the Trend for removing the dislike button after the 2019 Rewind? Who knows?

TFW you think making people effort post will reduce toxicity instead of increasing it as you've now increased the stake they've put into it thereby creating a stronger drive to resist the "enemy".

Don't think Alex realized that sometimes a downvote is the nicest way for someone to respond. I'm a giant !@#$ myself, and I ain't the only one around, a downvote is often nicer than what I'd actually say. 

 

Also literally what durmij said.

I've got a feeling that "Thanks" will take a sarcastic undertone fairly soon.

Way ahead of you!

"Bans and warning points" are really just the laziest way to voice disagreement with someone, and contribute to the negativity and toxicity that is plaguing the game currently especially on P&W discord where people receiving em doesn¬īt even get a reason why at times¬† :D While i can understand Alex¬īs desire to make forums and discord more pleasant for all involved, removing problematic people or expression of human emotions like simple act of downvoting to reflect someone¬īs anger or disagreement to any given stimuli, I do not think removing down votes¬† will not result in more pleasant exp, if anything it means more oppression, less speech and adds to the "toxicity" that is anonymous human interaction online. If Alex¬īs goal was to slowly kill his forum and discord and drive Orbis community to their own small parts of discord, furthering playerbase¬īs growing disdain for the game and it¬īs owner, then all I can say is Thanks Alex! ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬†

Adding downvotes was an awful change and it's better for the health of the forums that they are gone again. However, I can no longer flex my low downvotes given compared to all the other people who handed them out like candy.
