I didn't intend on starting a thread for this I was trying to post in the UFC Lincoln thread but seems like everyone that post anything gets downvoted even if it's a decent post. Talking about a turn off...

I suppose there must be too much activity on these threads. I'll just chime into one of a few closed Facebook groups, twitter, etc. for future events.

Detroit dont let it get u down man. Tapology is great because of the hardcore fans like u and
and alias, masserbruce, impfishrat, mulefloyd, greenhornet, spud, dtrain, poirer, gregory skheli shoalin hyrm the list goes on and on us real fans make tap the best mma site hands down. Dont let the cancerous casuals bother u. They are ****aroachs here today gone tomorrow. At least u got a positive post score. But yeah the voting **** is garbage at least if it wasnt anonymous we could confront our accusers and then their would b less downvoters. Either way hope to c u back. All u guys give me knowledge and different points of views i would never think of otherwise.

And brybry loudanswain mbach zuluzani yasdas ****en list goes on and on.

I upvoted you all here. 

Its just weird. One post in particular was after Rani subbed Sanders. I simply stated he deserves a nice step up in competition such as Brian Kelleher or Alejandro Perez and then the downvotes started. I realize I'm no Sean Shelby or Maynard but those fights to make sounded decent. Didn't realize my post score. I'm not really big on that. Cool feature and all but I like this site for it's fighter database and various regional shows. I'm far from a casual I think.lol I follow PFL, AXS TV fights, RIZIN, Invicta, Cage Warriors, ACB, Titan, Pancrase, TKO, Brave CF, BAMMA, Bellator to name a few. 

Thanks for the kind words though fellas.

The up/down system really is stupid at this point. I agree that we should be able to see who up/down votes your posts. You have those annoying trolls that just go through and dislike every post (as someone did in this thread lmao). 


This site is full of intelligent, true MMA fans who really love the sport. Then there’s also the people that have no ******* clue what they’re talking about. I like to think that I’m a hardcore fan, I’m just not very active on here anymore. This is definitely the best place to come to to talk to real fans and have conversations about the sport, and that’s awesome. I don’t really care about the voting system, getting down voted doesn’t bother me. It just seems pointless now.

The voting system has created some of the greatest threads on this site. It's been very entertaining over the years to see so many upset over something that really shouldn't matter. This isn't the first time it's been brought up and it surely won't be the last.

I know how to fix the voting system, which as it stands is just a mechanism for trolling, and a stupid children's game of tit for tat. People are downvoting good posts because they're pissed off about something said to them in a completely unrelated thread, and the whole thing is ridiculous.

It's very simple really;every member gets allocated a specific number of downvotes per annum. If you put a cap on them, then you give them a value, and people will spend them with much greater discrimination--which will result in more meaningful downvoting, and an end to 'carry on' and spam downvoting.

I've only been a member for 6 years and have 1,183 post which breaks down to 0.54 post per day. 

I'll see if I can lower my average of post per day down. And just worry about my pick %. That's the best solution i can come up with. Nothing better than threads that lose posters right?

@oldnick the voting system doesn't create good threads it discourages and annoys people enough not to post.
Threads would kind of suck if no one posted. Or if people post walking on egg shells cause of stupid votes.

Fans who care about mma create the good threads. We're not running for president so **** the voting system.

Its sad u get enjoyment from people getting annoyed by downvotes. hope the downvote i gave u brings u joy.

Thought this site was about mma? Guess not. vote away *****'s lol.

Stupid people are gonna act stupid.

Thank you for the down vote @freemoneyforall. It doesn't matter to me because it has no real importance or value, which you don't seem to understand yet.

"the voting system doesn't create good threads it discourages and annoys people enough not to post."

******** the downvoting fiasco thread was an all time great.

"Threads would kind of suck if no one posted. Or if people post walking on egg shells cause of stupid votes."

I'm sure the majority of people who think twice about posting something online are worried about "down votes". 

"Fans who care about mma create the good threads."

That's debatable.

"Its sad u get enjoyment from people getting annoyed by downvotes. hope the downvote i gave u brings u joy."

You can't control it so what the **** does it matter? Ignore it and move on.

The most annoying thing about forums nowadays are all these white belts posting their fight predictions. Or the disgusting infidels that post RIGHT before the fights are about to start like "hey I know you're trying to enjoy fights that are minutes from starting but HERE, take some nonsense breakdowns from clueless individuals in your face first!" 


Stop it.

@oldnick the point is that voting has nothing to do with mma. but your right about a couple things.
I haven't been around long enough to know what the down voting fiasco thread is but all im saying is its
Counter productive. Little losers with nothing better to do go around down voting. Most of them dont even post.
Nor do they even have an opinion or a love of mma. They r just losers with too much time on there hands. Like trolls and it just makes the website worse. of course nobody really gives a **** when it comes down to it. I still post what i wanna post when i wanna post it. I still call all voters ****ets when i want too. Only the all seeing eye in the sky greg can stop me. I only complain about it because i can see that dsuperstar aint the only one who goes somewhere else to post meaning a guy like him who contributes to making the site better is discouraged by stupid ****s who make the site worse and contribute nothing. He aint the only one neither. Guys like u dont really care about sharing info or exchanging opinions and ideas on the forums. U probebly barely care about mma at all anymore and thats fine but u shouldn't ruin it for those of us who do.
Masserbruce also contributes to the site so its annoying to c people downvote him for saying hello to the people in the thread. fishrat and mbach post updates to the site about current mma news and get downvoted. 
Its ****en stupid bro thats all. Personally i could care less if i get a million downvotes from a million ****s with nothing better to do. But when those votes send good mma fans elsewhere it makes the site worse. 
And That bugs me. I love tap its a comunity of a couple hundred mma fans like me who care about the sport 
Minus a couple thousand ****s who could give a **** about tap or mma and it would b incredible.

I second what @oldnick said.  Down voting means **** all and those who take it ******* seriously are mentally thick in the head.  This place isn't one big popularity contest.  It's a place to voice your mind about MMA with other fans.
