I think the downvote button and counter is legitimate and I miss it.

This site is about expressing yourself, and we shouldn't be so thin skinned.

Think of it this way, in an election, you either vote for someone you like or you vote against someone that you don't like, or you don't vote at all. That's what we had when we could see ups and downs. I could either upvote a meme, downvote a meme, or ignore it.

Now, I can only upvote it or ignore it. Yes, I can still comment, and I think that's why there are so many negative comments and flame wars now. If people could just downvote and move on they would.

I know some say that the downvote button still works, but you don't have the feedback of seeing how many there are.

Yes, I know there are some that abused the DV, but there are also those that abuse the UV.

Sorry for the multiparagraph reply, but it grinds my gears!

How does one get views? I mean what counts as a view, it's when you click on a meme or what?

People not just upvote fairys (misspelled intentional) complained that it messed with their chance to get front page status of was unfair to the terms of just internet peace. It was a civil war. Brother against uncle grandpa all over the slavery of being popular with likes I mean upvotes. Ultimately it worked as a point system towards your own not the memes value. It only counted the balance of votes. Like for every down you get half a point I forget. So some people would just click away. It still does that but it does not register as a negative on the meme. Again compared only to upvotes. So this is the fairy civil war. Imgflip caved because again It is the meme that is king not the comments or opinions. This was seen as a something against the front pagers or wannabe top users. Views can also be what comes on the share button. That is where some people get their points.

Got lost. But downvotes did mess with the original meme posters chance to get front page or points it only affected score of votes. The people who voted get points awarded to their own score total not meme but profile points. So it was cofusing to some and an injustice that a low vote meme got front page status. It was ultimately Pointless war but the ashes still burn for some.
