I bet lack of downvote overtime will cause beehaw to be a much more wholesome instance

i think it makes for a good filter; people who object to the disabling of downvotes are most likely going to be the sorts of people who don’t mesh with the vision of beehaw particularly well anyways, so it’s a low-cost and very low community vibe barrier

reminds me of lemmy.ml have a hard coded slur filter and all the ‘definitely-black’ redditors sprung out of the wood works with ‘how are we gonna reclaim the N word with this kind of slur filter’. And reactions that were quite similar.

🤮

since i’m from another instance with a downvote button, how would my (potential) downvotes affect anything? would my downvoting work as intended or be ignored by the algorithm?

I think they have answered this before and they said it just doesn’t do anythign.

ah, that’s good. one thing i can see it doing is affecting the post on other instances with downvotes on

the algorithm

Lemmy has an algorithm for posts/comments?

it does. it’s simple, fairer than Reddit’s, and fully documented too: https://join-lemmy.org/docs/en/about/ranking.html

Big hater of the downvote button and a big fan of this decision.
