Ability to downvote feature requests...

This all is referring to "Feature Requests", It could be applicable everywhere else, but most importantly I wrote this regarding feature requests.

While it's nice to see the ability to vote as a community, there's one side of the equation that is missing (Down-voting for feature requests).

Can't have good without the bad, cant have up without the down, cant have in without out. Duality is not only nature but it's in everything(but this part of the website).

If people have the ability to upvote to push feedback, to promote a post to get others attentions, it should work the same way for negative feedback. This only upvote is an extremely flawed system which is completely based in how many of one person can convince others to upvote. With criticism it's a double edge sword. Not being able to downvote something "as a community/user" only shares 50% of the aspect. I understand you can just not upvote it but it IS NOT the same because it lacks user engagement for those who disagree and see other requests as more valid, and wanted/or not important enough etc.

A wonderful example is how "Reddit" upvote/downvote system is a fine example of a balanced voting system.

Some users are not interested in explaining their self when they choose to vote because they either don't have the time to explain their opinion or just simply don't want to, this should go both ways here at Feedback.CIvitai.

You as a website (Civitai) should strive to implement this otherwise it's just a meaningless feature that shares zero insight of which is saying a lot. Remember, in order to improve (in everything) we must know the GOOD and the BAD.

The star rating for models has this built into itself since it's a scale of 1-5 stars(both good and bad)(with mandatory uploading of images/typed out review to share why they chose a specific rating[1-5 stars]

With only up-voting avail here to users, it's a flawed system of voting, we are only seeing 50% of the picture. This is just my take on it. I expect both negative and positive typed out responses otherwise what's the point in this data collection?

I apologize if there are grammar errors in this, English and explaining myself was never a forte. Please don't send the police, and if so, I'll have donuts and hot coffee ready!

Peace be with you.
