Making a poll because I think removing downvotes is ridiculous and I'm pretty confident a lot of others feel the same. 

Going to not make this a poll-only topic though because I want people to discuss it. Maybe I am wrong.

thanks

Why do you want downvotes op? What do they add?

They are able to say "No" the nicest way possible as people dont have to be rude or toxic especially with Alex's dumb rule saying u cant just say "No"

Fair question.

They're a quick and easy way to show disapproval. They are convenient.

Did that work towards better communication in the OWF?  Alex explained it as a too easy way to disagree and a source of toxicity. Was wrong there, you think?

I think a quick and easy way of showing disapproval like downvoting is better communication than removing downvotes. By removing them, I think a way of communication itself is being removed, and I don't like that.

I think downvotes are a happy medium in terms of disagreeing. I think with them gone, either people aren't going to communicate disapproval or they will use low-effort, possibly rule breaking responses instead. The former will probably be more likely, so I think there will be less overall activity in-game.

Downvotes aren't toxic. They may be used as people are being toxic, but the downvotes are just a vessel.

lol no.

the same people that consider downvotes important are the same that make horrible posts.  This forum is littered with low quality posts because of the downvoting system.

Better for people just to leave a downvote than to make spam/troll posts if you want a reasonable discussion. Also, who gave you the right to determine what posts are "low quality"?

that's simple.  My existence gives me the right.  I am high quality, therefore can identify low quality.  Zounds.

Guys just vote the thread 1 and move on. Reactions are less important now - thread ratings are the new hotness.
