In Help Center we can find: When to upvote and downvote posts?
When should I vote down?
Don't hesitate to vote posts down if you feel that they are not useful to the community, when they are unclear or when they are completely incorrect. For serious problems with the post, consider flagging it as per the instructions in What are flags and when should they be used?
It is a good idea to leave a comment together with the downvote so that the author or other users know how to improve this post.
I see a lot of down votes on our website in last days. I can even risk and say people more down vote than up vote! For exemple, the top member on TibiaQa (he is active on TibiaQa since Aug 21, 2018) gave out 362 up votes and 12 down votes. Another member active since Jul 29 (3 months) gave out 39 up votes and 29 down votes.
People lose energy for searching longer informations. For example question asked 4 days ago:
It is possible to answer that question, but it will take at least 25 minutes to write a good answer and if someone down votes it without any reason, it will be a waste of time.
A few examples of questions/answers that were negatively assessed:

In my opinion, all votes should be more closely monitored by administrators/moderators to prevent abuse. For example: If I want to downvote an answer, I would have to write a reason why - seen only by administrators/moderators, and if the reason is plausible and gets approved, only then my vote would be cast.
I hope that everyone who thinks that TibiaQa's down vote system should be improved leaves an answer/comment on this post.
