We've grown into needing negative feedback.
We now effectively have a downvote button. Next to the time on all posts and comments, there's now a
...where you can tell us you don't like something. Think of this like a downvote. It costs one sat (currently) and is a vote to 'outlaw' an item. Items with low downvotes relative to upvotes are simply down ranked. However, if an item receives enough downvotes, they are outlawed and filtered from view.
Wild West Mode
If you toggle on "wild west mode" in settings, downvotes have no effect on your experience. It'll be like they don't exist. Downvoted posts don't lose ranking and are never outlawed.
If you're not logged in, or haven't toggled WWM, by default you are in tenderfoot mode.
I'm going to work on reintroducing free posts and comments over the next day or two. Relative to before removing free posts/comments, half of new users begin engaging. We reckon posts/comments aren't prohibitively expensive, but loading up a wallet is a bit of a pain - particularly for users new to lightning.
To reduce the potential spam burden, free posts/comments will start out as outlawed and can get upvoted into tenderfoot mode.
After that, I'll continue as planned improving ~jobs economics and refining search. Then we'll add another sub and a design refresh.
