For God's sake bring back downvoting so we can filter bad reviews from good ones

Stop doing it, man!

I understand you but reviewing even few episodes might be also good?

I've been focusing more on reviews for AniList since they have downvoting (among other features) but I'd definitely like to see it be brought back here as well.

Cnon | Jan 8, 2018 1:21 AM

Hello fellow club members, i have scouted the forum post here
Kineta pleb
>Displaying usernames will come later.
2018 still not here

>We realise that older reviews will have a strong advantage over newer with the 'Not Helpful' removed,
I think you mean vice versa? modern reviews cant be downvoted no matter how trash they are. Whereas old reviews were up for scrutiny by the masses

>creation of a better environment for reviewing on MAL
Safe space established @lordzeru master plan of MAL

Kineta pleb levels increasing

>It was not removed to eliminate 'negativity'.
Yes, but thats exactly what it has achieved

>Vote cheating is a combination of both up-voting and down-voting raids.
Then why would you only remove downvotes? Kineta logic 101

Concern #6: Removing the 'Not Helpful' button removes our freedom to display our opinions on each review.
Silence is an opinion, and is also an effective response. Not only on all parts of the site, but also in life. No 'freedom' has been lost.
??????0 sense was made that day

Question #2: Will the new system provide the user with an option or tool that allows them to mark a review as "read"?
>I honestly never thought about this. At the moment, I don't have an answer for you.
Kineta you know that would be very easy to implement, stop playing dumb.

AnimeHonor | Dec 25, 2017 7:11 PM
@lordzeru That arguement falls apart when the exact same thing can be done for upvotes. Also if you want a safe space, why would you even publish a review? Reviews should be allowed to go into the negative too, make the author really think about what he wrote ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

Also i just checked the sign up page, and they have a recaptcha so thats nice. Probably didn't have it before.

@cnon ok ill do some investigating see what I can pull up on these forums. I can see that happening for less watched series

Cnon | Dec 25, 2017 3:35 PM
yeah top reviews are usually positive ones which is why reviews suck now.
they removed not helpful because of vote brigading iirc. you need to check the announcement thread.
That's a good idea I always compare negative and positive reviews before forming an opinion anyway.
Sometimes you need to dig really deep though.
