Hi all,

I just want to share this idea with you. Since the current system really sucks when it comes to C2V (5 free downvotes once you hit 20 votes), I would like to propose the following:

How about letting the author choose how much votes their guide should have before removing C2V? I am personally a big fan of it, and I would choose to leave it on forever, while others might think it sucks and just turn it off.

Just saying, because I'm pissed. I spent a whole day working on my guides, then one of them got 20 votes for 83 % and now 4 random downvotes sank it all the way to 76 % ._.

Do you think this is a good idea? And would it be easy to implement?

People will be too afraid to vote stating their honest opinion then have a chance at being bashed for them. That's why anonymity was implemented - to be able to give ones' vote whether good or bad without being questioned why they did.

Although the down-votes may likely be from other guide competitors/trolls. You just have to stick it out.

The idea itself is ok, you would lose a lot of votes that way too because people also like to vote and just go.

I would like to keep C2V on forever too. But the obvious would happen if someone wanted to downvote your guide they would probally just make an alt account and write "Dis is bad". It will of course decrease the amount of downvotes.

^ Well yeah, there will always be trollvoters, but at least the people who want to stay anonymous with their votes will be removed. Why stay anonymous anyways, be a man and say what you want to say about my guide.

People who make an account and write "I liek turtlez" and downvote will always stay. Pity for them.

And the people who would upvote my guide without having an account? Well, hate to say it, but I'd rather lose them along with the anonymous downvoters than keep them both.

So yeah, C2V for life! :P

Everyone complains that the first few votes after C2V disables are downvotes and lower their score. Well yes. People don't want to be labelled as "downvoters" and so wait for when it's "safe".

Forcing people to comment to vote is rude thing to do and I think voting should be anonymous unless the author wishes to detail why they upvoted or downvoted.

If C2V was enabled for x more amount of time, it'll just be "Oh, I just got 30 votes, passed C2V and now I'm 80% because of random downvotes", "Oh, I just got 50 votes, passed C2V and now I dropped 5% because of random downvotes."

C2V should remain on 20 (if it is here to stay), it should not be raised higher. Even 20 seems to be too high, really.

Hmm.. I guess without C2V people wouldn't rise to 90% in the first place, so the QQing about getting multiple downvotes in a row is actually a bit unlogical, lol :P

Still sucks for people to get downvotes without any (constructive) criticism, but as you said you can't force anyone to explain why they upvoted/downvoted.

I might even agree that that is a better idea than IceCreamy's, now that I'm thinking about it xD

@jhoi: I am suggesting to keep C2V forever, as in 99999 votes or so :P

As I said, if all of those "safe" voters would be a man instead of a *****, I don't really care if they upvote or downvote me. Just show balls and tell me what I did wrong in your opinion...

Not you personally ofc :D
