    Blame the trolls for having the time to put hours in downvoting certain members post history.

    Edit: Don't want to upset some people here.

    Too many people got black eyes over it, so they pulled the plug. They need to bring it back and just hide the account counter or mask it somehow, so people can only see the down votes in a particular thread and not feel like their credibility was shot.

  • “Here is the thing on this subject, while yes to those who argue on the metric side of things that without a disagree you cant 100% see how the community feels on a post, with the short term test we did the disagree got abused to the point of useless.

    What was it used on the most for the time it was on you wonder? To downvote any members history you dont particularly like (sometimes full history of thousands of posts for those who really hold a grudge), to troll people, to group harass, to stack statistics either for joking/harassing/trolling, to specifically target forum staff such as devs, CMs, mods.... anyone with a different rank then member really on any post they made, out of spite for many reasons, out of revenge should your post get a downvote, to spark conflict out of no where.......................

    And that is the small version. In basics it was abused way too much and would have caused way too many bans if we tried to moderate it and while yes, we can control reactions of others to lower the abuse it must be done one at a time and for thousands of posts that is too much time consuming.

    We did remove the visibility for normal users to see who gave you something to limit revenge wars but the offending party either bragged or you started to shoot blindly. In other words the abuse and complaints were just way too high for us not to remove it.

    This was a debatable subject internally as well. My personal predictions were just what happened but we decided to give you guys a chance and sadly you failed to control yourselves. This of course does not mean we will stick with only "Like" button. Changes will happen as time goes by and we may try and add other options too or make completely new changes but for now "negative reactions" are not on the table. We are open to suggestions and you can drop those if you what but for now no negative reactions sadly.” - “XXX07704996“

    That’s from the Mod himself. Hope that answers the question. This was the response from the other thread.

    Wow who has that kind of time?

    Wrong on so many levels but you got to acknowledge their dedication to such a loathing process true psycho paths manifested digitally ?

    This. I had one guy who was just going through my post history downvoting every post I ever made regardless of the topic being discussed.

    We need a Tier System for the Heroes. It would justify the "op-ness" of Vader over Han and Chewbacca. It would cost much more to unlock Vader, and would require you to save a lot more than for other heroes and vehicles, but it would be rewarding in the end...

    Yes, play! Yes, a gamer's strength flows from adjustment. But beware of the nerf side...not adapting your tactics, stubbornness, wanting the game catered to you; the nerf side of gaming are they. Easily they flow, quick to join you in a death & respawn. If once you start down the nerf path, forever will it dominate your destiny, consume you it will, as it did many an apprentice.

    Do what must be done. Destroy all the downvotes. Do not hesitate, show no mercy.

  • So I don't get it. What was the worst anticipated result of keeping the Disagree option? That every time someone had more free time than sense, a bunch of posts would get... Disagreed with? What's the real actual problem?
  • Too many snowflakes and mentally weak children on here who committed suicide because their opinion was not agreed upon. As a result, they had to remove down-votes to protect these delicate individuals.

    They took my post out when I named a hacker, ever since then I just post them all on 4Chan and the community adds more names. I name and shame with pleasure.
  • I think though we need "Polls" for some of the most controversially discussed requests.

    Being mass disagreed with is more than some people can handle.
