The new system is awesome...but why are you getting rid of "new"? i have seen every pictue on imgur. With the new system why can't i see "new" just hot?
The old new is now hottest sorted by time. The new new are images being added in real time.
I can only think of one reason for a downvote button.. and that is to show disapproval of a comment.. But what happened to if you don't have anything nice to say don't say anything at all? We learned the phrase as children but it applies to adult life as well.
All I'm saying is maybe we don't need a downvote button. After all, the true measure of a comment's strength should be not so much how how many people downvote the comment to make their own look better relatively, but how many people like the comment enough to give it an upvote.
There is value in the downvote button in that it identifies bad content and affects reputation points. We do not plan to get rid of it altogether. There are measures in place to prevent excessive downvoting.
There are a lot of really unfunny people and people who take an image hosting site too seriously. I would like to punish those people in wacky ways. It would encourage better comments.
Thanks, but we don't need any mods at this time.
Can someone please make a Meme pic with the hat wearing Dbag guy with the text: "Wants to get America back to work. Unilaterally gives 800 thousand illegal immigrants work visas.” Also, can you place President Obama’s face onto the body? Thanks internets!
