That's is a advertisement and not someone option.
I downvoted OP because I felt like it.

Yes, and this is the reason the system is not working; 90% is just mischief votes. It's like this whole thing about unwritten rules similar to "don't mention the war"; as soon as you "whine" about downvotes, you get downvoted out of spite.

It would be all fine and dandy, had the system not greyed out at -10 and buried at -50, it wouldn't really matter, but it does and so it is.

Edit: case in point!
I solved this riddle on page 6. Three children downvoted.

So you say. I see a lot of terrible posts with downvotes. The system works well enough most of the time, IMO. Ultimately it is only feedback.

Downvoting is no more "silly and childish" than upvoting. Honestly, they are the exact same thing but intended to communicate opposite sentiments.

UPVOTE: "I agree." "Good idea." "That's correct." "That's clever/funny."
DOWNVOTE: "I disagree." "Bad idea." "That's incorrect." "That's stupid/rude."

I would take the views of those who oppose downvoting far more seriously if they were for the removal of post voting altogether rather than only retaining upvoting.
OH man they better not make these forums like wow's......ewww. Horrible, horrible.

They are going to put all the forums for all games on the same software so we will get the WoW format eventually.

They will take our precious downvotes away :(

I actually LIKE them. I can just use it to disagree and move on.

100% of this claim was fabricated.

I know. I totally sympathize with you. I hate change and the new forums take some getting used to. I am still struggling with them a bit.

The notifications are nice, I do admit. I also like the advanced formatting options for guides and Wikis that can be made once you have Trust Level 3. Emojis don't totally suck either.

It just FEELS wrong, like overly tight new shoes.
