Yes, I never really liked the removal of it. They way you propose it, I think would make everyone happy.

for sure. if it isn't public then people can't be swayed by it (maybe just not fall to the peer pressure of a number on a screen, but hey) but if the creator can see it then they have an idea of what the public thought of it. been thinking that since they got rid of it

I think the effects of the downvote button (determining positions in the Hot stream, and bumping offensive memes back to Submitted) are too important to keep.

"I think the effects of the downvote button are too important to keep."
Did you mean too important not to keep? I honestly am not sure if it's you or I that isn't getting something. :P

I understood your meme as suggesting bringing back the downvote button (for the benefit of seeing the proportion of likes to dislikes for a meme you make), but also removing the actual effects that the downvote button has on memes ("downvotes would have no effect").

I'm saying I think it's good that the downvote button affects memes, and the effects are something I think should be kept.

Ah, I see. Even if the downvote's effects were brought back, I think it would be a good idea to make it so that only the meme's creator can see how many downvotes the meme has.

As far as I know, the downvote button's effects are still in place. Only its visibility was removed.

And you might be right about there being some benefit to a meme's maker being able to see the downvotes, for the sake of feedback. I'm not sure.

I think if anything the downvote button should only effect the actual meme itself, but have no effect on comments. This would keep trolls from raging against people who have a differing opinion from them and would like to express it. Any more people cannot or will not say something negative in a comment because they know they will just get attacked.

So to take a look at how things are right now, if one was to take into account the number of views their meme gets with how many upvotes that meme gets during a certain period of time that it has been featured, that can tell them 1 of 2 things. If a few hours has gone by and there is a low view count that tells them that it got placed in a spot in which visibility of the meme was low and therefore can account for the low upvotes on the meme, whereas a high view count with low up votes would show that not very many people enjoyed it.
