Sure, karma is ACTUALLY not a big deal, and people shouldn’t mind too much if they notice a huge neg bombing, because when they speak out against it, that’s what the trolls want
but karma definitely a great way to support the helpful/good posts
and to point out which ones are bad
to reduce misuse of karma, I suggest: (and this is assuming the mods can see who is doing the voting and can see their history of it)
- temporarily removing the abuser’s ability to vote
- reverting the voting they have done
who should this apply to?
everyone hates someone else on the internet, some of them go as far as to following every comment/post someone else makes just to neg each and every single one of those things, they’ll go on that person’s wall, neg all the positive/neutral comments on that page, and upvote all the negative comments towards that person
However this means more work for mods that they REALLY don’t have to do, combing out all the votes and then deciding if the user is abusing the voting system, so if that’s the case, I suggest giving us user the ability to see who voted, as well as time and date, and if we find someone doing some trollful negging, we can report them
what yall think?
*finding out who negged you is the difference between
“oh….looks like I actually made a terrible post/comment that I shouldn’t have”
“oh….it’s someone that REALLY doesn’t like me……….pfft”
