    there are to many troolers and taxic *players* and bots i think dislikes need be removed or for dislike player need have 5 hours of gameplay and reason of dislike

    Removing dislikes is not an option, because then it will be impossible to deal with low-quality content. Having 5 hours of gameplay to downvote is an even dumber solution, since everyone has those 5 hours.

    Just make better content, you're almost there.

    don't be like Youtube, disliking and liking something is basic human emotion, it shouldn't be taken away

    I can kind of get what you're saying, but I have to agree with EnganK in that it would be difficult to sift through or discern which saves are high quality / have been made with a substantial amount of effort or have somewhat interesting concepts from ones where it's more or less just "infinite spark loop" saves, for example.
    Tbh, though, I kind of like the idea of having an optional reason as to why you downvote, for the purpose of gathering data in order figure out how to improve your save, but at the same time, it would probably be a bit tedious and even annoying at times to have to fill something out, whether you have a reason why you dislike it or not.
    As for the 5 hours of gameplay requirement idea, I don't think it would be very effective, because I feel as if that's a criteria anyone, even the supposed toxic or trolling players, could meet, meaning it wouldn't be very effective in the end and most likely pointless.

    In the end, liking and disliking is a function that I feel works fine as is, because, in the end, whether a save has high upvotes or downvotes is, at its root, a matter of opinion. That isn't to say, of course, that any of your saves may be actually bad, because in the end, it's more or less down to opinion, really.

    I think most people will disagree with you about the quality of your saves. You, like some other users, need to learn to accept criticism and understand that some of your saves are actually bad.

    Regarding commenting while downvoting, see my response on this thread

    Regarding removing dislikes in general, I also responded on this thread

    I think it is important to keep downvotes around, to make it easier to sift through all the saves on by date and ensure front page is higher quality. Users should be able to downvote as they want, without having to go through hoops to do it. Also, tracking 5 hours of gameplay is not realistic, we have no method of tracking that right now.

    Moderators are still around to handle cases of mass downvoting and other issues that may come up. We do generally know which users cause trouble with excessive downvotes, and many of them have been banned in the past over it, when their comments became too hateful.
