Should 4chan have a upvote/downvote system?
no, go back

>>81454350We already have it.this is how it is done:I just downvoted your comment.FAQWhat does this mean?The amount of karma (points) on your comment and 4chan account has decreased by one.Why did you do this?There are several reasons I may deem a comment to be unworthy of positive or neutral karma. These include, but are not limited to: • Rudeness towards other 4channers, • Spreading incorrect information, • Sarcasm not correctly flagged with a /s.Am I banned from 4chan?No - not yet. But you should refrain from making comments like this in the future. Otherwise I will be forced to issue an additional downvote, which may put your commenting and posting privileges in jeopardy.I don't believe my comment deserved a downvote. Can you un-downvote it?Sure, mistakes happen. But only in exceedingly rare circumstances will I undo a downvote. If you would like to issue an appeal, shoot me a private message explaining what I got wrong. I tend to respond to Reddit PMs within several minutes. Do note, however, that over 99.9% of downvote appeals are rejected, and yours is likely no exception.How can I prevent this from happening in the future?Accept the downvote and move on. But learn from this mistake: your behavior will not be tolerated on Reddit.com. I will continue to issue downvotes until you improve your conduct. Remember: 4chan is privilege, not a right.
>>81454350your post explains why it wouldn't be a good idea. it's mean
>>81454418Honestly if you commit suicide over people on the internet not liking your post you were probably better off dead
>>81454350>Should 4chan have a upvote/downvote system?It doesTo upvote, you quote a post, write "based", and press Submit. To downvote, you quote a post, write "cringe", and press Submit.
>>814543504chan should only have a downvote system.
>>81454483I genuinely don't understand how these people function in day to day life. Do they have a mental breakdown every time someone disagrees with them at work?
>>81454483I agree but there are a lot of underaged people (who lie about their age) here and a lot of them will probably grow much thicker skin once they're a bit older. I can't fault a kid too much for getting upset over an internet insult. If they're over 21, though, yeah, they should quit the internet or life
no, poltards would downvote everything that's not their incessant off topic spam into oblivion
>>81454350It already does, it's the number of (You)'s
>>81454511Over 21?? No wonder teenage suicide rates are so high when their fucking ability to take criticism that is completely common place in normal life doesn't develop until over 21
>>81454350I fondly remember when in the past the hacker 4chan would do something, some anon would start a gore thread on /b/ just to welcome the tourists who came in after mass media reported on it and everybody went here to see what the place was like>>81454350Go fuck yourself
>>81454564Disagree. Shitposters get intimidated by effort posters.
>>81454607No only downvotes, now kill yourself you incessant waste of life.
>>81454350I think the worst part is that you have no idea who downvoted your comment to 0 points, so you imagine a huge faggot in your head easily deplatforming you kek

>>81454350It has a downvote system, it's called sage.
>>81454350Algos and to a lesser extent voting (which is leveraged by the algo) are true cancer. Chronological or gtfo.

>>81454668Maybe back when they showed sages.
>>81454686>404 in 20 minutesOnly if it's actually tech related if it's another bait thread it'll hit bump limit.
It did exist for one April Fools Day.
>>81454494>the option with the least down votes winshonestly, this is a pretty good voting system when dealing with people who dislike each other.
>>81454686Ha!You clearly didn't see the /g/ resident audiophile threads.
I wish I could downvote chuds on here
downvote only would probably work, but I prefer no such system at all
>>81454707 it's curious how when you make an actually tech related thread that's bombed by shitposters, your thread will get deleted but none of the shitposters won't ever get banned
No, up boats and downboats are how misinformation and propaganda is spread. It is really hard to spread your propaganda when you have people shoving the shit back into your mouth as you're spewing it, with no karma system so no one can instantly dismiss opinions based on what the "consensus" is.
>>81454350>Should 4chan have a upvote/downvote systemyes, but ONLY downvotes.
>>81454350Putting an up/down value system in place is the online equivalent of putting a button on every audience member's chair that triggers when they're seated or one that's triggered when someone sniffs the sit after. Except the stage and auditorium are infinite and people can occupy many seats at the same time.
yes, so I can finally leave this shithole
>>81454350>people forgot like event few years agoIf you want everyone to act like an upvote whore then, yes
>>81454350Likes, upvotes, downvotes and everything like that is what killed the free spirited internet, online creativity, and what made hordes of normies addicted to attention.
>>81454801I don't understand what you're trying to say.
>>81454350No, go back nigger and collect your meaningless internet pints. And don't forget to buy expensive awards just to give it to a unfunny meme.
>>81454350No. Anons should be able to think for themselves. That's what 4chan is for-a free space on the internet where you can discuss freely about any topic. Garbage opinion still is an opinion. The up/downvoting will hinder anons the confidence of freedom of speech.Also imagine phoneposters from /pol/ downvoting every threads on /g/ that is not /pol/.
>>81454510>disagrees with them at workAnyone behind a reddit post that gets posted here is a closet tranny who didn't plan enough steps in advance and are now jobless weed smokers with anxiety, depression, and a shit ton of college debt. The enthusiast subs are where you can find people with jobs and can have conversations with dissenting opinions. These are where people have enough money or expertise in something to get any value out of reddit (e.g. homelab, homenetworking, various phone-specific subs)
>>81454934>Anyone behind a reddit post that gets posted here is a closet tranny who didn't plan enough steps in advance and are now jobless weed smokers with anxiety, depression, and a shit ton of college debt.Nice. This sentiment truly reflects the open-discussion mantra of imageboards. Totally not silencing people I don't like, nothing to see here.
>>81454905>Garbage opinion still is an opinion.The fact that anything can be said on 4chan is a welcome relief from other sites. Filters can be used for annoying bullshit but within a thread you can have real discourse because stuff can't get buried
>>81454350No and please do not suggest anything so stupid again.
>>81454350I didn't realize redditors felt this way. That's funny.
>>814543504chan should only have downvotes
>>81455032Right? Makes me want to build a botnet to mass downvote people.
>>81455032you didn't? of course they do. it's the reason they fight so hard for upvotes.
>>81454494Beat me to it. Came here to say this.
I have no sympathy for dopamine fiends.
>>81454350We already have one. It's called (You)s with either based or cringe.
>>81454510I'm pretty emotional person myself, at least in terms of communication - say someone shouts at me when talking face to face -- tears are going pretty fast to my eyes, heart beats faster, stuff like that. So I am trying to understand these people, but, honestly, getting THAT emotional about likes/dislikes should be considered mental health problem. Moreover, these people are not even trying to do something about it - instead, they are screaming and crying how painful and terrible dislikes (and other double-voting systems) are. They are trying to make the whole internet their safe space. It's terrible.
>>81454350no fuck off
4chins is an upvote only system, but the only way to upvote is to participate in the system.non-participation voting is a terrible system.
>>81454755i once posted in a keyboard unboxing thread and got banned for "gay erp off-topic garbage".
>>81454755>>81455569a 3-day ban no less, mind you!
Not possible. It's designed to be read from top to bottom without posts being manipulated. The only way to see which reply has "value" is by how many replies it has. Otherwise, you're still forced to read all replies. Kind of the point of the site.Reddit's system is just a sóy meter. Anything they disagree with gets downvoted and different opinions get shut out. Here every reply has the same value.
>>81455515Its BPD. Not sure about you, but you should get yourself checked for it too.
>>81454350yes absolutelytoxic stench of this place needs to go
>>81454350>Should 4chan have a upvote/downvote system?are you implying it doesn't already?>BASED>cringe>ywnbaw>TRANNY>satania.jpg...etc
>>81455569this. jannies are literally fucking worthless faggots who aren't even consistently faggots.I'll see a wave of on-topic and off-topic shit banned, and other times nothing. Also they usually just "delete" posts which doesn't really do anything. (User was banned for this post) at least signalled broadly what the mods thought was ok and what was NOT ok.I'm literally convinced jannies are paid to let paid shilling stay unmolested as well.FUCK JANNIES
>>81454977>The fact that anything can be said on 4chan is a welcome relief from oth->(post deleted)
If I was admin of a website like this and I thought the community was cool, I would try appointing jannies but who have the bigger job of protecting the community culture by banning faggots and low effort shitposters. I would also audit what the jannies do to make sure they aren't faggots themselves. If that became too much work I would make my most trusted jannies audit the lower jannies.
>>81454350it should because we can crush the feelings of shills, trannies and reddit drones
>>814543504chan should enable it for a week.
>>81454580It's a result of wasting away your adolescence and youth in school and college
>>81454350we had that for aprilfools day 2 years ago
>>81455822this.upvote / downvote is fucktarded.there is nothing wrong with making a comment that is incorrect if it results in a broader and wholesome conversation about the correct answer. This isn't hn or reddit where you say something someone doesn't like or thinks it is wrong it means a downvote, but that doesn't mean we want a free willy situation where blantantly dishonest, retarded, troll-tier garbage is allowed to be parroted endlessly as well. We just need proper moderation and ban all /v/-toddler and /pol/-toddler impotent rage garbage off of /g/
>>81454350yes so i can upvote every based satania poster i see. they deserve the upvotes.because apple sucks
>>81454460kek every time, but the original is better
>>81454830you know, when you see a pretty girl standing up from chair, you go and sniff that chair that means you upvote that chair, hope that explains it

Nah but IDs would be nice to hide the apLOL low effort trolls.
>>81454350It would make for a fun april fools kind of thing.
>>81454668nowadays all a sage does is not bumping the thread when you post
>>81454350if i wanted a social credit score system i would go to reddit
>>81454668Look who it is again, ID Heaven. I'm fed up with your shit faggot. The other day when you called me a newfag, yeah, haven't forgotten about that yet. Fuck you I've been on here for months and probably get on here more than you anyways. Don't you know that you make yourself look like a newfag when you call others newfag? Just because you learned how to hack your name and change it to "Heaven" does not give you the right to disrespect anyone at any time!
>>81456909Unless you post a pic at the same time, then it still bumps.
>>81454350>all spam/bot threads upvotedhell no
>>81454460I always wonder if this was originally an unironic post.
>>81454350It already does.Cringe & Bluepilled = downvoteBased & Redpilled = upvote
>>81454494It kinda did when it had visible sage but that got really gay
>>81456717>snowflakesit doesnt mean what you think it means
>>81454350There should only be a downvote button and nothing else.
>>81454350>I know you're not supposed to care, but it's like contributing to a conversation IRL then being told to fuck off. It's like a shot to your ego/self esteem because nobody cares about your opinion until it eventually becomes hidden. Same way getting upvotes makes you fell good about yourself and is an ego boost.>Imagine if there were was a dislike button on Instagram, people would be committing suicide.Caring about upvotes signifies that you are narcissist and about downvotes that you are too coddled.
>>81454350Chronological posting is why the old internet was good and the new internet reads like an AI fed on itself
>>81454350>post frogs>get no (You)s
I have thought about it before, but even just having downvotes would be bad. What would be better is a display that shows how many people reported the thread (and maybe each post, too) and what they reported it for. If the thread has many reports, it should probably auto-sage or even prevent posting until a meido has a good look at it.We need to do something about the shills and trolls, but I see no real automatic solution that won't take proper threads with its net as well.
>>81458209People would just abuse that.
>>81458026>Caring about upvotes signifies that you are narcissist and about downvotes that you are too coddled.I lasted about 20 minutes on Reddit when I got downvoted to oblivion in a Christian board answering a question by another Christian. It was like the board was monitored by skeptics, who pounced on anything relating to science. Call me coddled, but if you can't even talk to the people you intended to talk to without outsiders interfering - and the person you replied to has to go to the very bottom to see my post - it sounds useless.
>>81458293just to add, you can't even get an angry debate going with this.. or "teach" me my errors, if I have any. it's just soulless.
>>81454460>I tend to respond to Reddit PMs within several minutes.
>>81454350Commit manslaughter on yourself.
>>81457869imo downvotes and making them invisible to the public is optimal. that way poor quality posts get filtered out but it reduces the chances of people circlejerking/piling on.
>>81458278Like I said, I'm aware of that. But it's not that different from up/downvotes in this sense. Only a horde of oldfag mods can really save us.
>>81458505you're assuming people downvote because of post quality. even just a handful of immature people can ruin that notion. and in an echo chamber, what does quality even mean? anything with an opposition point is perceived as low quality then.
>>81454592This but with all name/tripfags.
>>81454350Uinronically, reddit punishes for speaking as opposed to downboatingXD when you're part of anonymous crowd and get nothing for being a downboating jerk. On 4chan at least everyone's a jerk so it's fine.Reddit tries to be like real life in terms of "no being mean" but at the same time hands out punishments for other-think and trains future corpo-bullies.
>what are bump and sageNewfag
>>81458505No, I said NOTHING ELSE. Just downvotes. No hidding, no anything else.
>>81454350Meanwhile, "downvoted" comments on 4chan are the ones that get the most (You)s kekek
>>81454350>Should 4chan have a upvote/downvote system?Literally the reddit addon known as 4chins-x
>>81454350Yes. Technical boards like /sci/ and /g/ need a rep system. Would eliminate all the retards spouting retarded shit on here. You shouldn't be able to downvote/discredit without replying with a reason tho.
>>81454510These are the same people who claim they're going to go punch nazis in the face. Life is a long series of fantasies to them which terrifies them when reality doesn't match fantasy.
>>81458723no, we dontwe already have bump and sage
>>81454350Shove broken glass into all of your orifices until you die, homo.>>81454359>>81454394First two posts best posts.
>>81454350Yes, except upvotes are given by dubs and down votes are given by singles. Once you fall below a certain threshold, you will be doxxed and a bunch of cp gets uploaded to your pc along with a tip to your assigned three letter agent
I don't like how hard it is to get down votes.
>>81458143Here's a (You), anon. :)
>>81454350No, but it should have the raking system.
>>81454460kek>>81454350no because if you have to post for someone to call him out at least you post a reason or show you have no reason other than namecalling. Thus we can see the actual approval of the post, but people who agree many times won't bother replying IMO, only seething fags reply when they don't like something so it's kind of hard to measaure. It' wouldn't improve anything IMO
>>81454350Personally, I like the downvotes. It's essentially the same as the Upvotes. Though with one difference that replies to your post will dwindle to nothing as opposed to the upvoted stuff.
>>81458293I get where you are coming from and I agree that it sucks.But in your case I think it was more about not being help the guy, not about fake internet points and people disagreeing with you.
>>81454686this>>81454707+1you guys know the feeling
>>81454350But it already does, anon
>>81454350clearly we need a downvote only system
>>81454350No. Go back if you want that retard. The lack of upvotes is an advantage and is the sole thing that makes this site unique and great.
>>81454350It has a better system, being ignored into the archive. That shit teaches you to either ask better or go somewhere else until you come up with something worth replying to.
>>81459322yeah there is a learning curve. once you get the hang of it you can bait the returds into hitting the bump limit in every thread of yours. jannies won't do their jobs (too busy jacking off to cp). best quality control I've ever seen on the internet.
>>81459322>something worth replying to>actual tech threads get buried>desktop thread, fanboy wars thread, /pol/ bait thread gets to 300+ repliesalways so easy to spot the newfags who think this place is any different from reddit
Nah. It would just be sanitized and curated by bots. The free for all anarchic nature of this place gives it a unique charm even if a lot of garbage makes it through.
>>81459429>free for all anarchic nature of everyone shitting wherever they want into a giant pile>"I like this pile of feces it has a unique charm"
>>81454511I started using this website when I was 12 and got called all kinds of names. I always knew it was just random people on the internet so it never bothered me. People take the internet way too seriously compared to 10-15 years ago. One of the early things I learned is the Internet isn't srs bzns.
>>81454359this, Fuck off Ranjul go back to plebbit
>>81454350there would be no point to it, everything would be negative anyway.
>>81457530Let me see if that's true
Technically there already is a downvote system, it's just measured by how many anons shit on you. Which is all of them.
>>81454350There's a population of very prolific users on the internet, who are here because they're isolated, and Reddit merely does what everyone wants to do with these people: not having to deal with them. Not my problem, right? After all they're just trolls, or labeled as such. Their backgrounds behind their screens is irrelevant, or I'd rather say that I care about them as much as I care for the 16% of people in iPhone production units who've fainted on their workplace. Of course, I've saved this drawing from a Pullitzer prize finalist to upload it whenever someone mentions the contradiction between owning an iPhone and the values I pretend to have. Anyway, they don't have an articulated argumentation, just the vague feeling that maybe the way Chinese workers are perceived isn't so different from the way they're treated.Reddit may be very useful to have relevant information (especially external links) stand out, but it also reproduces this awful practice. While open source, it has always reproduced this sadistic practice of luring these prolific users into socializing on Reddit, instead of using appropriate social software. (Which, as always, has been decisive in Reddit's growth.) Now Reddit will probably be bought by Facebook or by some other asshole on the internet, and it will be much worse than it already was.
>>81454490Someone could make a userscript for this.
>>81457682>Nooooo you can't have downvotes then you'll downvote me and that hurts my feelings :( :( :(Anon it means exactly what I think it means. They're snowflakes.
4chan should have only downvotes.
>>81454494it's called report and sage
>>81460758snowflake doesn't mean delicate or hypersentitiveit's for the people that feel special and unique so they deserve careful, special treatment>oh you think yourself a unique little snowflakesnowflakes arent even delicate. but every snowflake has a unique shape.thats what it means
>>81454350Yes! It also needs stories, usernames, and some anti-hatespeech rules like my favourite suberddit!
>It's like contributing to a conversation IRL and then being told to fuck offYou see, 4chan's better then that. 4chan doesn't have a tool that's like telling people to fuck off, you can just tell people to fuck off -- and they can do the same to you. it's a perfected system already.
We have sage. Unfortunately, it's impossible for users to see when you are saging their thread so you can make them know you want them to fuck off. I'm saging my post right now.Fuck I miss when it was just mailto:sage
>>81454359/threadthough I wouldn't mind a crypto tip system that splits it 50/50 between 4chin and the poster :3
>>81460758lol, kys nigger
>>81454350You have to go back, and never return.
4chan needs a dislike button so we can dislike kikes
>>81454510>Do they have a mental breakdown every time someone disagrees with them at work?Yes. These are the people who get you called into HR for bullshit claims of bullying or discrimination when you do something like reject their commit. Or the women who cry for an hour in the bathroom after being told that their performance isnt up to par with the rest of the team. Or the "men" who sulk for weeks after someone corrects them.Unironically these people are all examples of why bullying is important for kids. We raised two generations of kids on "You are a special snowflake and nobody can criticize you because everything you do is amazing", and then are surprised when they off themselves at the slightest bump in the road, and cant handle the pressures of life and failing so they retreat into internet hug boxes that tell them to cut their dicks off or convince them the world is broken.
>>81454350>downvoteIf it gives us a way to actively drive the mentally unstable fuckheads here who shit the place up to suicide, im all for it.
>>81454350single axis metric is retarded
>>81454350I just want a system to filter/hide a certain user's posts (just for myself). I'm certain 99% of the low quality posts are made by 1% of the posters. Ideally the moderation would do its job, but here we are.
>>81454350Say no to upcummies
>>81454350upvotes are (you)s and downvotes don't exist. 4chan is actually pretty similar to instagram that way
>>81454490I thought (you) was an upvote and "sage" was a downvote?Also based.
>>81464588Wow thats a very problematic opinion anon. I'm not going to say it to your face but expect to hear from HR in a couple of days when me and my friends come for your job your piece of shit.
>upvotes are (you)s and downvotes don't exist. 4chan is actually pretty similar to instagram that waydownvoted
>>81466286>HURR DOWNVOTES DONT EXISTyou are a massive fucking retard and you should fuck off to 9gag
>>81454350It does. If you get a (you) then what you said was interesting enough to respond to. If nobody says shit about your post it means it wasn't. Pretty simple. Respond if you feel like a thread needs to be bumped, don't post if it's not interesting, and sage if you think it's not interesting and you want to tell op he is a homosexual. It's the perfect system.
>>814543504chan should only have a downvote button
