It's not your mistake. You are doing what you think is best for you but if you don't like my work, Just ignore that. Why a down vote??? I have been here for 17 consecutive days but I never down voted a single Code. Because people spend their time and efforts in making it. This is how you discourage new comers from enjoying this platform and putting their efforts into programming. I wanted to say a lot more than this but I think it is enough for those who have some sense!

In most cases they are just trolls or people scared to express their opinion, so they give you an anonymous downvote for no particular reason. The downvote arrow is pretty useless if you don't express your opinion and the reason why you downvoted something. Don't worry and keep it up, upvotes don't make you a better programmer. In addition, you should not give importance to a "vote system" based principally on followers rather than quality, it is not a bad thing i think it's pretty fun, but this is why you should not be worried about it.


Well spoken @Maz, don't be put down @Yasir Khan because of the down votes keep moving!. You know what you know and that's all that matters. Happy coding..👍


maybe adding a mandatory "give reason to down vote" option should be added


nope @Retr0, bad idea. Downvotes are useful to keep relevant and useful codes/questions on top of bad ones. even then it would add to nothing as troll downvotes would just write shit like "adkskfoa193&k" to fill the form.


@Nadstratosfer. See my post. I didn't say anything against freedom of speech. I said you shouldn't be too free to hurt feeling of other people for no REASON!! If there exists a reason, say out loud! Don't politicize this post.


you're right @justelisha


They probably think your code sucks. Or perhaps you haven't included enough smileys replying to them. Eitherway don't whine like a feminist, learn to live with existence of different opinions or stay offline.


I don't understand why people gives negative or downvote. This is educationally purpose to learn the codings. we are here to encourage and support each other. Teach/guide us in positive, not negative and we shall success. I have been here for a few months and I NEVER give negative or downvote to anyone's codes. I always excite to see their works because I get to learn better. Please ingore negative people and keep on coding whatever you like. You will always have my support.


Don't take it personally : if you get a down vote it's maybe because someone thinks differently. It's not a hateful thing, it's a tool. Try to use it as a quick way to know that some people would prefer to write the same code differently.
