Well HOMER the thing now is if staff wants Omni to be friendly, but felt that the presence of negative voting caused things to be worse in overall, then since it involves trying to make the site having less drama, it's them who have the last say in the matter. Same for bans and such. In thar case, if a member is so much against the change and is not fine with how the admins who are losing money into running the site are managing things here, then they have to find a different website or start their own. And I think leaving Omni just because negative ratings are no longer possible without giving a chance to see if it's really gonna cause problems would be as absurd (IMO) as leaving because a member likes TI-BASIC.
Besides, we had no rating from 2004 to late 2009. While there was a bit more trolling, it was just dealt with more warnings and bans. (kinda like a permanent nDoom policy, although during the nDoom policy, criticising how the site is ran was ban-worthy)

Time to gain back those upvotes...
What? WHAT? WHATTTT?
You just lost the game.
Suck it up.
If there is something that needs to be downrated, you can always report it. This way punishment and reprimand can be carried out by staff members in a private environment instead of a public one.
But what if there are things that need to be downrated?
Maybe you guys should change it so that a admin has to accept the reason and stuff...
That would create a lot of unnecessary work just to keep a system in place that isn't really needed.
Projects: TBA! Coming to an 83+ near you!
What if someone clicks the report link it also downrates?

We are in 2034. The situation on Earth is catastrophic. The ozone layer has been completely destroyed by the carbonic gas of automobiles, the chemical industries, and the poosh-poosh in little cans. In the end, the earth cooks under the rays of the sun. We must find a planet on which can live 6 billion idiots. The planetary federation turns to the strongest country in the world: Canada. It is Canadian knowledge that has allowed, on October 28, 2034, the launch of the spaceship Romano Fafard, which leaves earth to search the confines of the Universe. Where the hand of man has never set foot.
I hate TI right now
You make me lose the game

If they are already reporting the post, what would the point of also downrating it be?
