So in order to prevent accidental post down-voting and discourage suspicious down-votes, I have finally caved in and decided to enable karma reasons, so now when you click "Like" or "Flag as abusive", you will be asked why you want to up-vote or down-vote the post.

We don't really mind if you give no reason for "likes", since "like" is self-explanatory (we recommend replying with a post to comment rather than just clicking the button, though). But for "flag as abusive" down-votes, you have to give a valid one (there is also a warning that appears on the page to warn you that you're about to flag someone's posts, just in case you mis-clicked).

Sorry for the annoyances this might cause.

I've been waiting for this feature for quite a while.

Archer walrii? welp.

Anyway, yeah, the number of times people accidentally downvoted posts and asked the staff how to fix this and we were like, yeah how do we fix this? Good move here, that's how it should had been done.

Yeah the issue is accodental downvotes have been increasing over the time, even after the site theme improvements to reduce risks of it happening, and some people suggested enabling voting reasons a few time before. Doing so seemed to be the only solution.

Errr... Is it normal that we also have to precise a reason when we are upvoting ?

aeTIos

Yeah, that's the way it works. We'd disable it but it's either all on or all off. I usually put something funny in it when I upvote.

We did not want that. But the karma system has no option to disable reasons just for upvoting. For upvoting just enter gibberish like ++ or gsdrfhrehfffdf

aeTIos

yee; I usually write something like    wriee   or     t h e  g a m e
