[META] What's your upvote/downvote ratio?

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created November 29, 2011 at 6:38 PM

My upvote/downvote ratio is 1696/9, which makes it 188.9/1.

What does this say about you? Is this in line with your outlook on humanity/paleo/life?

Sometimes I'm tempted to down-vote every post that doesn't bother to use capitalization or punctuation. But now that I can edit, I guess the kinder thing would be to fix them, but there just isn't enough time in the day for that, so I do neither.

Apparently I haven't either. I thought I'd down-voted an obvious troll at least once, but maybe I flagged it instead. Oh well, something to look forward to. (I *do* think I'm enlightened enough to cast negativity on another's thoughts, but usually I just don't care enough.)

Yes, you can only change it within a certain timeframe. I didn't notice the downvote until after that timeframe had passed.

You can always change your vote! Just click the upvote again and your vote will be gone. If you want to see a real-time demonstration, I'm rapidly vacillating between upvoting and not voting on your answer right now.

@sage, you really don't qualify as rude--sorry if that disappoints you. :-)) For me to down-vote you have to be "kick a sick dog" mean.

@Dave S, go to your user profile and scroll down to where it says "votes." It gives your total of upvotes and downvotes cast.

"What does this say about you?"

Since there are many possible reasons for upvoting, downvoting, voting or not voting, the isolated statistic probably does not say much about you.

However, the mods will be looking closely at user profiles over the holidays in order to create "naughty" and "nice" lists.

506 up, 4 down. I don't down-vote just because I disagree, but because I think a person's been mean or rude.

Ratio is 365:1

Each down vote was someone being mean to another person. Now I just flag the post.
