Unless your opinion of a post depends on how many upvotes or downvotes it has, I dont see why this system is in place. You cant even tell how many total upvotes/downvotes somebody has, nor do posts with tons of downvotes get deleted. What exactly is the point of this system aside from butthurt people finding satisfaction by clicking downvote when someone says something they dont agree with?

Let me see those downvotes

This post is hidden due to user account is no longer active or improper post content.

The only time people upvote/downvote is when someone posts somethin stupid, someone gets salty and catch feelings, someone said something funny, or when they dickridin or hatin on certain members jus cause... Nothin to take seriously.

exactly, so why even have it in place? It seems like its there so you can have a preconceived opinion of a post before you even look at it.

Let me see those downvotes

Its a forum, people are always going to agree or disagree.
If you truly care what other's think above your own opinion, you will never think for yourself and will only be a sheep to the masses.

.wa do dem.

I aint gon lie sometimes when I get a post with mad upvotes it strokes my ego. But rly its wuteva and upvotes rnt meant to be taken that seriously, they just add a fun(and at times unifying) aspect to the forum. Sometimes I upvote/downvote posters jus cuz of who they are. Who gives a shit.

Before this whole Hansum Boyz shit I got normal upvotes/downvotes. After it actually became a thing I always get random upvotes on everything & exactly 2 downvotes for no reason.

The system is mostly a popularity contest

Chicks barely dancin, glancin every chance they get, like - oh shit, he's so HANSUM

Surely you mean only offtopic.
I only see it as someone seeing a post as either:
Something funny, something unfunny
something smart, something stupid
something good, something bad

Or to bluntly put it an agreement or a disagreement; a thumbs up or a thumbs down.

By your logic most of hypebeast is just in some popularity contest; which may apply to some in offtopic but as a collective the majority of hypebeast show their opinion and personal views through the voting system and posts.

It's a forum, it's what it was intended for.

I think as a whole, people on this site are smart enough to see what is good or bad without following the example of another.

.wa do dem.

very simple way of saying I agree/disagree
But who really uses it in that fashion. Does everyone really disagree with me in the OP or are they just downvoting me for the sake of downvoting.. know what i mean?

^^Yes mostly off topic. The rest of the forum pretty regular but off topic seems like highschool. Either way your opinion shouldn't change because of that.

If people can see a weakness they are going to run with it. Clearly this is getting to you otherwise you wouldn't have made this thread or asked this question.

That still implies you would rather not have the screen door there if you ask me.
