Ah, this is much better.  No risk of nightmares like at the GSHC anymore.

And, yeah... never underestimate the spite people can have.  We didn't think anything of the up and downvoting until people began trying to punish others with the system.  Having upvotes and only upvotes not only keeps things rather positive, you don't have people abusing stuff just to be mean.

Is it wrong I upvote people when one of their posts make me smile?

No, but it's wrong to downvote one person several times when only one of their posts makes you upset.  Or none... it could be a PM or something...

I seem to be the least liked. Only 2 applauds....sigh thats always the way of my life.
Yes. It's true. I'm attracted to Males. Now you can all rest easy now that I confirmed it. Now we can all get back to our merry little uneventful lives now that I spouted this pointless fact that I spouted.

Have a GREAT day~

Well, it certainly got him a Pity-Like.

He also completely ignored his friend Nyran and his then-2 Karma. If this were Ninja Gaiden Sigma, I'd be screwed. Lol.

A two-way vote system capable of tracking voting habits could single out problematic users and "troll" accounts.  (Example: A user who goes through another user's history to down vote every comment they ever made is obviously up to no good.)  Zero would be the lowest number to avoid abuse of the system before and after the user is dealt with.

That doesn't stop the "punish" problem.  When someone does something to draw the ire of another, they'll not simply downvote the problematic post, they'll downvote several of their posts.  Furthermore, if they can tell that said person downvoted another post, they'll upvote it to cancel it out.

Downvoting shouldn't be a thing - period.  The human tendency to abuse and game the system out of spite is too great - I've never seen it not abused when both are an option.

What about the two-way star system used on GSAR?  (minimum of zero stars; maximum of five stars)  They have a short vote range system with a floor and a ceiling plus they only allow one vote per user.  (This is used for profiles, not post.)

We don't really have enough active users to justify a "1 vote per user" system. In all honestly what few people we have remaining are already such a tight community that it boggles the mind as to why any form of post-voting system is wanted or necessary.

That's not abusable without alt-accounting, which will get you banned.  GSAR has a like system, which only allows upvotes.  Between that and the star system, there's no way to "Punish" a person by gaming a system, not without getting banned yourself.
