-This is copied from Ivy's story with some slight changes, I don't know much about the downvoters but I have been seeing more and more about it and it needs to stop-


Dear Reedsy,

Blxxii emailed you endless and endless times, however, you ignored. She needs you to respond. WE NEED you to reply, please.ย 

It's all about downvoting.

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

And then you skip.

This is an important message, Reedsy.

Our friend Ari Reynes, has been downvoted from 4,600 to 1,000. 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. Some aren't sure about coming back.

Blxxii plans on leaving Reedsy for the sake of downvoters- (She is more concerned about her friends.)

I, Abigail Cross, plan on staying Reedsy for the sake of stopping downvoters- I am more concerned about my friends.

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

Sadly, the Marshmallows are practically gone.ย 

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

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.

Ari Reynes (4600-1,000.)

แ—ฉแ—ดแ–‡iแ‘Ž แ—ท ๐Ÿ’š (31,010-28,000.)

๐Ÿ’œแด€ แด แด‡ แด› สœ ส ๊œฑ แด› ๐Ÿ’œ (5,100-1,000.)

ๅฑฑ.w. S๐“€yเธฟelle (3,000-1,000.)

๐•ƒ๐•ฆ๐•Ÿ๐•’ โ„‚๐• ๐•๐• ๐•Ÿ (2,000-1,000.)

As you can see, downvoting is making people feel... hurt. 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 others were downvoted, it was a battle between the downvoters and our friends (obviously our friends won.)

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 Blxxii's emails.

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

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

4. You created the downvoting button in the first place.

All I'm asking is:

Remove that downvote button.

Remove that down-arrow.

Sigh 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, delete one "Reedsy author here" sentence and put your Reedsy name there.

I donโ€™t have no downvote or upvote button. What are they?

Reply

You see on the comments? next to your profile picture there is a down arrow and an up arrow. You automatically start out with 1 karma point, and every upvote from another person gives you a karma point, every downvote takes one away. People, who we call downvoters, are spamming the downbutton for lots of people and taking away a lot of points.

yes! would you like to keep your current character description or change it? Current description: Dark purple hair that fades to gold at the edges, golden/amber eyes, peach-olive skin, dark purple shiny diamond earrings, metal foot

Reply

Iโ€™ll keep it :D I wish I was a speed writer XD it takes even less time than before to write, but still isnโ€™t comparable to you and Loneโ€™s :P

XD lol it's just something I can do ig, results in sloppy stories sometimes tho ha ha Also would you like to have features like an arctic fox or look completely human and have like certain powers similar to that like others do? :)
