Serial downvoter on the loose!

Calling all captains of the Asian forum. We have a serial downvoter on the loose! 

From my analysis of the downvoted posts they are attracted to CV rework related things, especially if it is a positive one. I have not a clue yet who did this, but caution is advised. For he may strike anytime, anywhere.

I will return with further news as necessary.

Beware, Beware, BEWARE!!!!

(Or if you are Indonesian: Waspadalah, Waspadalah, WASPPPAAADDDAAALLLAAAH!)

You mean RX83?

Obviously he doesn't like something and this is a forum where we can express opinion.

Having a forum where everybody agrees is not healthy. 

So I think Go For It RX83 !

 

But just remember, Kamra is a bitch, and everyone can vote.

 

Spoiler

But they're just numbers/figures and means absolutely nothing. :fish_aqua:

I’m fine with people disagreeing. My go to line for disagreeing is “I understand what you are saying and why, but I do not agree with you” And if asked, I will explain why I disagree.

My problem with downvotes, and this is mostly because the smiley used looks so grumpy, and I’m a strange person, is that I feels less like “I respectfully disagree with your comment” and more “your comment is stupid and you are stupid”. But again, that’s just my strange perception. The fact than a downvote does not provide a reason why, does not help my perception either. But I am a firm believer that if you disagree with something, you should stand up and explain why. Only way to try to change peoples opinions to to try to make a convincing arguement against them. Just telling them that they are wrong is more likely to make them fight you, which just leads to more disagreement, division, and nothing gets done.

And I’m talking in general here, not just in WoWS forums.

Which may be my problem, trying to apply real world logic to gamer forums. (Not that the real world uses this logic anyway)

I do downvote some people on principles (like, if they post whatever, I have to downvote them), but that is only when I actually bother reading what they post.

There is a serial downvoter on the loose and there should be something we could do to put his hands in the noose.

Its a forum.  Why not reply with some form of common sense response to the arguments you don't agree with?

Who said you have to use an insult or abuse? Have you been watching politics? You don’t have to disagree the way they do.

Here, you can just explain why you disagree. If someone then tries to get into a fight, you can ignore them.

If you're prone to insulting people, then it is better.

And I like the idea of having a forumite who perpetually downvotes.

In fact I'm enthralled that even after I supported you, you tagged my post with 'boring'. :cap_hmm:

1) How do we gender assume its a HE?.

2) How do you downvote?.

1) Certainly gender can't be AP. :Smile_trollface:

2) See that little face in the lower right corner?  Hover mouse over and click the angry/enraged one.

I'm of the opinion that his English doesn't work, and the vote is the only way of expressing his views.

And he is perpetually angry. I'd post the 'hate flow' meme, but couldn't be arsed.

I suppose post, can rhyme with noose if you use a specific accent.

But I still would have chosen a different word to keep the metric.

lol, i wasn't even thinking in that sense. Missed opportunity.

But here goes take two - 

There is a serial downvoter on the loose and there should be something we could do to put his hands in the noose.

Because there really is no excuse for him to make himself look like a goose

When the downvoting becomes profuse, and the angry face has been let loose.

agree
but problem is this is ASIAN server. people have different language, culture, attitude,  thinking methodology.
this is make us hard to communicate and understand each other.

actually I like to discuss with other people but mostly it's end with we still don't understand each other and start fighting with our bias.
this is make me frustrated that what a doing, it's nothing.

so now I don't discuss so much like before to avoid this one.

Forget random downvotes, I just got reported in a game of ranked. 

I carried and won that game. So why did I get reported, you might ask? 

There was a player on my team from the previous game. He accused me of playing badly, and reported me for that game. I was in a Z-46, him in the Musashi, he expected my to man-fight and kill the Kronstadt by myself. Sure

Thought he'd report me again for the previous game. 

The level of salt is high in this one.

You can always choose to ignore replying and all quoting/mentions.

The biggest problem ini downvote button is the emoticon that look very offensive compared to boring emoticon

 

Also if you look carefully the downvote didnt affect the forum reputation so why care.....

 

They need to remove downvote button and replace it with "disagree" with face more friendly like this

I know of 2 players who got really upset over the angry Emoji, saying something about there points. The Emoji are apart of the forum & if you can`t handle an Emoji DON`t post anything :cap_popcorn: :etc_red_button:

So there is bad and angry, do both of those "downvote"?.

Nothing downvotes.

It was taken away from the forums year ago because snowflakes get their feelings hurt by downvotes.
