Petition to end downvoting!

Written in response to: Write a story about a team tunneling down into the centre of a planet.... view prompt



Dear Reedsy,

I've emailed you endless and endless times, however, you ignored. I NEED you to reply, please. 

It's all about downvoting.

 "Oh, this is just a thing about downvoting, B-O-R-I-N-G!" 

And skip.

This is an important message, Reedsy.

My friend Sia Sharma, has been downvote -4000 pts. This is unacceptable and the hard-worked for points are gone-poof. This isn't a threat, but a lot of people are taking breaks from Reedsy.

This is a time when downvoters are striking the most-either from multiple accounts or just from teaming.

Sadly, the Marshmallows are practically gone. 

I wasn't here when all that happened, however, I suspect that that's the reason why Marshmallows were created; the cause of downvoters. 

I have just checked, and many of my friends were downvoted 5,000 points down. Literally. Want me to list a view? Sure! I'll gladly, but I bet that'll be the rest of the story.

Here's just a F E W, you may add to the list if you'd like.

Sia Sharma ☆(5403-1213)

As you can see, downvoting is making people feel...Hurtful. Perhaps it may sound stupid just to quit Reedsy just because of some stupid downvoters-well, it is. Wanna know why? 'Cuz your friends are just gonna be there and upvote you. When I was downvoted, it was a battle between them and my friends (obviously my friends won.) 

Thanks to them, I'm above 1k, without...I'd be at 0.

The upvoting button SHOULD BE A THING.

The downvoting button SHOULDN'T BE A THING.

Reedsy, I doubt you'll ever see this message because...

1. You never respond to my emails.

2. Your boss would never (probably) see this.

3. You'd let the downvoting button exist anyway even after everyone left Reedsy, huh?

All I'm applying is:

Remove that downvote button.

Remove that down-arrow.

Sign here (Reedsy name) as a petition to remove downvoting. If the word count get's too much, then make a new one. Like this story if you want the downvoting button removed so it can get to the very top. If it wasn't clear enough, copy it, pick a prompt, paste it," add your name, and submit.

I don't know why, but this has been going around. I mean, I do not support downvoting, I have been downvoted myself, but adding this to your stories is not going to help. I mean, you can send it to the Reedsy helpdesk and all, but after this update, there is no point of adding it to your stories 'cause no one from Reedsy's gonna read it if you have not submitted it to a contest. So yeah.
