As in less negative since they took the downvote away.
Honestly I don't think taking away the downvoting has changed the negativity on here. Just makes it so that nobody can see it. So I think it's still there and nothing has changed at all. Ex that you can't see if someone dislikes a question, mytake, or comment.
Well, considering the guy who likes to anyone who disagrees with him a feminazi is still here along with the misogynists that literally think women are the root of all evil are still here and the perverts spamming dick pics are still here same old, same old.
I agree with the point that people are still annoyed with another but it's just less visible. Which kind of makes it dumb to me. Like... that doesn't resolve the issue. It just builds up until things erupt all over the comments and a ton of comments are deleted. It's silly.
Removing the down vote was the best move Gag has made in my observation. I assume the level of negativity innate with gloomy people hasn't changed, but at least one way to show it against others has been removed. As for the now-I-have-to-type-my-disagreements argument, I think any disagreements they truly felt passionate about they would bring up regardless of downvoting. But then again, IDGAF about anyone that disagrees with me lol, like who even cares?
Negativity is a perspective only. I haven't ever seen GaG as negative, it just shows different points of view. Negative people will be negative, some situations tend to inspire negativity. Are we not negative many times in real life? We just don't need to let negativity affect us, affect our own perspective on things.
I hate it. GAG is dying. Not just the downvote. All the interesting people have left. It's not worth messaging people anymore, because all people want to know is how they look or if their SO is cheating. Nobody comes on here to socialize like i did, talk to people that I would never normally talk to.
I do not think so and I never really used it when it was here and but also never seen it used on my comments.. It tells me that I was doing something right by not seeing it used on me.. as it looked to me like my comments to the one who asked the question.. are and were on a some what of a solid footing
actually, I find its more negative without the vote.
People are more hostile without a means to express it, meaning we're having more open discussions involving angry hatefully fueled perspectives that simply result in an endless string of pointless banter until someone gets banned, or deletes themself.
I don't think it changed anything. It was just a click on the button anyway. Actually, if you take that away, the risk of having an even more negative community is big because if you disagree heavily with someone you can't just click the button anymore, you have to comment which can easily result in an argument with much more hate.
Downvotes werent really that negative. Like getting downvotes would suck but then youd move on and not care. The reason why they got rid of downvotes is so people can actually comment and explain what they disagree with, which makes the site even MORE negative
Compared to other forums, I think gag is much, much less toxic. But it has nothing to do with the downvotes. If anything, people are probably arguing more now. And people are still blocking everyone that disagreea with them so...
Now that the down-votes are gone, I find myself having to type my disagreement to the person and that of course causes clashes occasionally. Before, I used to just down-vote and keep it moving now I'm getting into more clashes with people so by all means, it didn't help the community.
lol i think so. u realise that not everyone has the balls to tell you they disagree with ur opinion, so they stay silent. as for me, i still get people talking shit everyday, but it makes no difference at all.
