Why are you scared of letting people use your voting system?
Pathetic. 200 reputation needed to downvote a post. Not using this site again.
Is this a worthwhile discussion?
Our voting threshold is meant to prevent spam users or bots from attacking our users to promote their own content above valid, repair-related content. Downvotes affect reputation, and reputation carries a lot of weight in our community. We want to make sure the people who can affect rep are real and qualified.
It is also initially keeps answers from being downvoted purely because they didn’t work in a user’s specific case. We want people to prove their knowledge before dragging other posts down. For this same reason, downvoting actually costs you reputation! So we’re trying to keep it “affordable” by asking users to earn rep and get used to the site before downvoting.
If you think a question or answer is low quality, you can leave a comment and one of our moderators will be around to remove or correct it.
Thanks for contributing! It only takes a few days to earn 200 rep. I hope you stick around.
