Re: Voting Change - Reduce "Vote Downs"

I don't like the idea of restricting people's choices to positive ratings only when it comes to voting. It just doesn't make sense to me. Not all negative ratings are bogus. And I think it is important to be honest when it comes to voting, so I don't like the idea of making votes public either.

Just think, whenever you post photos, how often you get actual constructive criticism from other users? Actual honest comment? Removing the anonymity from the Challenge voting would just result in a lot of reciprocal back rubbing.

Perhaps DPReview can come out with some weighting scheme for the scores to reduce the impact of the vote-downs, but I think otherwise the system should left as is. Only DPReview should know what ratings users are giving in the Challenges to preserve anonymity. If a user down-votes a lot, the final ratings should account for this.
