Possibly it's time for a new design decision. You have
to be at level x before you get a chance to downvote.
That way, you have to learn the responsibility of knowing
when to use your ++ votes since higher-ups who have the
capability of -- can negate your choice. Of course that also
requires knowing when a post has been unfairly ++. Hmm...
But since your total votes are increased through experience,
I guess that is the method to ensure that the older monks keep
a balance of power. Well, if enough people take nosedives in
XP due to haphazard downvoting, this might be something to
consider, but the current method seems to have at least a
little bit of balance in place.
ALL HAIL BRAK!!!
