    Vote it down to see what happens.
    This is only a test and we may or may not implement this system. If we do implement it, we'll have to have some guidelines for using the down-vote so it's not just abused by those who who disagree with an opinion.

    Nope - 2 separate systems.

    Wow... now I feel kinda' guilty. :(

    That auto-message was pretty fast! I also got a warning that I was the fifth down vote. Interesting stuff.



    :D

    So is it removed from public view? I can't tell.

    I just 'approved it' My guess is that future down-votes will not trigger another Moderation action until they expire (24 hours)

    Shows up for me as well. Hang loose, I'll call Merkun, see if he sees it.

    He says it shows in the public area. Not locked.

    I think it showed up after I 'Approved' it out of Mod queue.
    I just approved it again but it appears that each new down vote beyond the 5 will send it back.

    I don't see anything. In fact, I would be well within reason to claim you are all babbling on about nothing. o_O

    Murk checked it again, does not show to the general members 45 minutes ago.

    Can the same person down-vote more than once?

    That would be keeping in the spirit of our current system of government, wouldn't it?

    I approved it, just for the experience. Now to test whether a second down vote can be done.

    Yep, looks like you can vote twice.
