Its just toxic, and only serves to provide a way for people to be toxic without any discussion. If a proposal is not good, it wont get many upvotes. There doesnt need to be a downvote option as this just provides a way for it to be abused by trolls.

Without a downvote option, people who disagree with a proposal will have to actually add to a discussion with their own civil feedback., explaining why they disagree. Or simply dont upvote something. The downvote option is just a shortcut for toxic trolling and bandwagons.

Why dont we have the option to "dislike" individual comments? Because it would be toxic right? Same thing.

EDIT: If you are downvoting this without any discussion you are just proving my point and admitting that I am correct.

Not everyone has the desire, or time to post drawn out posts about why we like or dislike something. Why is it you just want the 'dislike' or 'downvote' removed? Are you hurt when someone doesn't like your idea? Who gets butt-hurt over a downvote? its just a person saying they don't like the idea..who cares? Some of us would rather spend our time playing the game than explaining ourselves on why we agree or disagree...but that don't mean we shouldn't have a vote too? or are you suggesting otherwise?

I'm downvoting this because I believe that the upvote/downvote is an easy way for Devs - the real reason we're doing this - to gauge how favorable an idea is without making them go in depth on our back and forth. If they see an idea is somewhat popular - they can dig deeper for details and make decisions.

Thanks for your suggestion.

We use both "up" and "down" votes because players have stakes both ways. If you could only upvote, an idea may be popular among a niche group and get attention, when another group would be inversely affected and not have the opportunity to indicate as such. Consistent with ensuring this equity, we allow both up and down votes and will not be implementing this change at this time.
