Downvoting

Downvoting

You can now help us fighting spam and unwanted content by downvoting comments and board topics.

When should I vote down?

Downvote posts that are spammy, misplaced or sloppy and do not add anything substantial to the discussion.

How do I vote down?

Click the down arrow to the right of each comment / topic. You can undo your votes by clicking the button again.

What happens when I vote down?

Comments and topics that have been downvoted multiple times are collapsed / greyed out.

Downvoting is not something we want you to take lightly! Use it wisely in the spirit to improve the platform.

    I'm sure all of this has been said but: Reporting the comment should be a separate function from down-voting imo, I don't really like the idea of effective censorship which could possibly arise from this feature when certain people/communities/ideas come into contact. Reporting should be reserved for situations of great gravity, while down-voting could be a bit more lighthearted in nature. I don't mind keeping everything prim and proper but AT's community could be dulled by this I think. Also could breed a sense of hostility among the sites less mature users (you down-voted my comment? i'll just down-vote yours then), which would kind of defeat the point of the down-vote system. Just talking here, not sure how much of this would actually happen.

      @ApoC Music There is no automatism from down-voting to banning an account. The last is always a decision by many moderators as a last resort.

      What if someone's account gets banned/deleted just because they were defending themselves on Audiotool from people who like instigating arguments?

      I think that @ESP just wanted to get attention.

      I still think that acknowledging the drama is important for the community though.

      This topic actually proofs that downvoting already works. All comments with aggressive or 'supposedly' funny content are not visible. Anyway, there will be another upgrade on downvoting when we got enough feedback.

    How come when someone sends their own opinion on something and it gets downvoted because people disagree it gets removed? I feel the downvote feature should be removed because the user can deleted the comment for himself already. Also It makes the people who have Advice/criticism gets assumed for spam shouldn't makes me feel I can't express my own opinion.

    I see the idea here. I just think a name change would be in order to avoid confusion. The majority of users are very talented when it comes to ignoring the board. As such, I think the name downvote should be changed to something that suggests it's purpose, such as (this is an example) 'vote as inappropriate/spam' You have a big menu to work with so this name shouldn't be a big problem. Also if you aren't going to do that, having a popup the first time someone downvotes, like the mute/delete comment one would be an acceptable alternative. Again I think the main confusion is caused by the name.

      Good point. However sloppy and unsubstantial topics/comments are also considered to be down-voted while inappropriate comments and spam should always be deleted by the moderators. But I agree that wording is important. We are open for suggestions.
