Why do people dislike codes?

2 people disliked my second code that I put on solo learn. Why the code is not spam? Is it just because I am a beginner programmer and that my codes are basically useless compared to a code a good programmer can make? I find this very discouraging for myself and other beginner programmers who maybe experienced this.

@Kamink Because someone dislikes something doesn't mean they're being toxic. It's simply their opinion that they made for whatever reasoning. I know we live in the era where everyone expects a trophy/medal just for participation, but that isn't realistic and pretending that everything is "puppy dogs and rainbows" does nothing to make one better. If it was bad code, poorly formatted, etc... then it doesn't deserve an upvote just for fun. That's why there is two options, upvote or downvote. However, with that being said, SoloLearn -should- implement a means of receiving feedback on your code so that you can move forward in a productive manner. That would make the system better because then the coder will at least know why they got a downvote and how to become better from it all.

I would NEVER downvote you, Jamie! You've been so helpful to me!

I only dislike codes when they've been stolen/copied and published publicly, specially those where the original creator's signature has been replaced 😥. But yours are clean, it must have been someone trolling around. I've had people who have come likestorming and others dislikestorming my stuff. So don't get discouraged and keep those nice python codes coming 😊👍

perhaps because they dislike the code?

Let it be and just try to make the codes more and more efficient for the user.

It's hard for me to say why someone else likes or dislikes something; it's completely subjective and relative to the individual judging you. The reality is everyone will have their opinions and their choice to like or dislike something, which is how it should be, right? When I look at your profile I only see one code listed, so no clue. If you post it up, I'll give you feedback on it if that's what you're seeking.

I don't understand why there is an option to downvote. If you don't like someone's code, leave a comment I didn't like it because (some reason) and check another code. I have never downvoted anyone

@Obbu But he is an beginner! If they want to help, they could write why they disliked the Code.

sometimes people do it because a code is too chunky / inefficient

Don't afraid or stop coding.No one is perfect.No one has learned without failure.

I wasn’t expecting a upvote or a comment But then in 10 min i got 2 downvotes already?

I had eaten a clown for breakfast. 🤡

So many people do that on sololearn. Tell you what though, I’ll like your codes for you.

I cant see the code which was disliked, so i cant really help you, but, you know, there are always people which think they have to be so toxic...🙄

Oops I accidentally made my code private to edit it.

I wish I knew I have 2 stalkers that downvote every thing I do on here

@Jakob Marley Yes, thats right, but theres a point where critisizm ends, and beeing toxic starts. It dont helps you anymore if someone does something without a reason.

@Kamink Someone doing something without reason, and not knowing their reason, is two different things. Because we don't know their reasoning doesn't mean we should assume they had no reasoning or ill intentions; at least as our first option without further information. All they did was downvote them, so they didn't even reach a point of supplying criticism verbally, especially not to a point of being toxic in the least. We're being more toxic in this thread with our assumptions and criticisms than the person who we're talking about downvoting a code they didn't like.

Lots of down votes are bots. That's why I believe in absolute transparency, so you can see who did it. In your case, maybe somebody with 2 accounts did it. Also remember the sheep mentality. People up and down vote what others do. Protip: copy-paste the code to a new file, save it and delete the old one.

@Nonzyro Your purpose of "absolute transparency" in this situation is what? Making sure you know who to hate and fight with unless they like everything you've posted or coded? I sat and thought about your statement prior to replying, and I can't come up with a single benefit, which is why I'm certain they didn't implement such a system. It would do nothing but to fuel hostility between people by knowing. If it isn't apparent, even if someone was downvoted for a good reason, they'll feel a certain way because everyone takes pride in whatever they create or do, which is why they do it and share it out. If I downvote you for good reason, and you knew I did, it would cause you to want to confront me or downvote me back out of simple spite. See what I mean? That's why a feedback system along with the voting system would be optimal; you can vote and also provide constructive feedback. Ultimately, their main goal with the voting system is simple. If a lot of people like it, promote the thread to users. If it's not something the community likes collectively, then help us moderate by using a downvote system that'll help remove threads we don't need without wasting manpower on something that's secondary to producing courses/content. Anyways, don't downvote people just to be mean, and if you can provide feedback, do it. If you're downvoting for good reason, then downvote as you see fit, you don't have to like everyone, everything, or pretend that you don't have an opinion when you do. On the other end, don't take things too personal or serious when it isn't; take whatever lesson/information is there and discard the rest while moving forward. If a little downvote here destroys you, then you're in for a surprise when you enter the corporate/working world where no one is going to care about your pity party because the boss didn't like your work and told you to fix it.
