I know, its a little bit of a friendly dig at Raydog as he currently has a "downvote" front page meme. Its not a big deal to me either way as I rarely used it except in cases of blatant douchebaggery. I often upvote points of view that differ from mine to hopefully encourage others to join in the commentary.
I don't see how a crappy meme would make it to the front page even with no downvotes...if it is indeed crappy people aren't gonna upvote it...they may not get downvoted back to submission, but if noone upvotes it, the meme isn't gonna go anywhere.
I didn't mean just comments. But comment wars, with multiple people commenting. Because each time someone goes to comment its a view. The front page is just for the ones being interacted with the most.
2 ups, 8y
Not unless they get upvoted, which probably will not.
So some of my submissions are still not featured. No downvote bar makes me wonder why. So if there is no downvote bar we just have to assume that people are still downvoting the hell out of something like little evil jerks or that the admins decide ... nah, just won't feature this.
Since the bar has been removed I've gone from 78% featured to 73%. I am just not understanding. Some of my stuff is not too bad but if no one ever sees it I am just making them for myself I guess.
So can you explain how does a meme not get featured? So latest memes are all memes created? And a meme gets featured off of there? For what? For views? Upvotes?
Can you explain the algorithm? I haven't found a page on this site that explains how anything actually works. It can be frustrating.
Right. So like I said ... now that we cannot track our downvotes ... we have no way of knowing whether it is because a meme is unpopular with the public or if it is the moderators who just don't like them. "Imgflip users and/or moderators can then vote on your submitted images, and the best ones will make it to the homepage." Removing of the dislike bar seems to have given moderators a lot more anonymity. I can only assume since I have had such a drop off after the removal of the bar and since the 'algorithm hasn't really changed" that it is mainly due to moderators.
Don't get me wrong, I love the idea of no downvotes...I just made that meme because it seems to be something that a lot of people are identifying with right now...any word as to whether or not it is temporary? Just curious...
I am sensing there was a downvote CIA/Illuminati/conspiracy. Oh this is not good. Secretly downvoting memes so that people would be upset about downvote fairies, therefore can post memes about downvoting in order to get upvotes. Clever, very clever. But! Now that the downvote bar is gone the power has shifted. mmm hmmm.
So maybe all those who want it back are in some star chamber, inner circle, meminati.
So far as I can tell, the majority of those that want the downvote button back are the ones that use it for trolling...there are exceptions, but i've seen countless trolls crying about it more than anyone else.
