Welcome to the DawgNation Forum!
As a rule we usually only "down vote" people if they are being out of hand, jerks, WAY off point etc... we all have different opinions and many of them are great.
People don't really like to be voted down for regular type posts.

I hope y'all enjoy and stay for a while!

    Why does everybody feel the need to be a pseudo moderator? It's a college football message board. Everybody R-E-L-A-X. Let's all just savor our recent victory.

    I was going to DV you, but you saved yourself with that last line

    Wasn't meaning to come off that way. Two new guys came on this evening and started down voting a lot and was just trying to be nice so that they don't rub people the wrong way.

    I didn't get the wannabe mod vibe at all. There's a difference between discussing mores and running around trying to discipline people with your posts and down votes.

    Making regular use of the down vote button makes you look goofy. I don't see any harm in occasionally explaining that to people who haven't picked up on the flow of the place yet.

    I have to know what is the big deal with getting a down vote or a vote up?

  • HotDawgsAndMustardHotDawgsAndMustard Posts: 153 ✭✭✭ Junior

    Maybe they are from the pre-reddit generation. What would that be? Generation Dial-up? Lol I'm kidding.

  • levanderlevander Posts: 4,481 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    @pigeons That's really dumb to downvote things because you disagree with them. People have opinions. Expressing blanket disapproval just because someone disagrees with you is really dumb.

    I guess this down voting thing is serious.

  • BigDawgEatinBigDawgEatin Posts: 1,681 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    I respect up voters as well as down voters.

    Confession: I am a new poster and I have down voted people.

    Signed,

    A new poster

    In all seriousness, it was only because they posted something that the facts showed to be untrue. Not because I disagreed with them. Which I still think is worthy of down votes

    ......who cares?.......go out side ..... enjoy the day

    It always amazes me that people who have nothing better to do with their life than to post 500 times in 2 months on a sports forum somehow thinks that makes them more important or knowledgeable.
    It just a **** forum where everyone from the dumbasses to the really informed should be welcome. I really enjoy the stupidity, even my own.

    I just usually up vote posts I agree with and down vote posts I disagree with.

    I didn't realize people were so sensitive to down votes. It doesn't mean "I hate you, you are dumb." it just means I disagree.

    I agree with you @Pigeons BUT if 5 people disagree with you, even if 20 agree, then 5 DV automatically buries the post. If you want to read it you have to click on it. FWIW ( and nobody probably cares) but I only DV for borderline Flag worthy comments/attacks on others

    ^^^^ BTW As a retired person with a love of the Dawgs I don't anything more other than this except the Podcast etc. That doesn't make me more knowledgeable but beats the hell out of weeding etc in 90 degree heat/humidity
