Now if if only I gave a damn to filter out the comments that were just people lamenting about being declawed or SJWs

how do artists, like me, will be able to know how unpopular your uploads might be so you can come up with improvements?

Legitimately curious: How were downvotes informing you of what needed to be improved before? I would think all they did was a vague "I don't like it" but not actually helping you find what it was that needed to be improved. Rather leaving you in the dark trying different options/subjects/styles till you found one that didn't get downvotes.

Am I wrong? I haven't done much artwork myself, so I'm not fully in the same mindset. So I'm just trying to understand.

options two or three sound good. Absolutely hell to the no on the reddit system. That'd be going even further backward. Their system sucks.

Ok here's a big hypothetical what if. I don't know if it was brought up already. What if down voting was reinstituted BUT no longer anonymously? Like there was a list of upvoters, downvoters, and favoriters alike. Like there currently is with favorites. It's easy to say "well that brands people" or something. Well… so does faving. Someone could kink shame someone for faving something they find cringey anyway.

Drama in the comments
It seems a lot of people, including artists, don't want to see down votes go while some are okay with it. I'm neutral as I have no use for downvoting or hiding. The tag blacklist is sufficient for me. But that's just my opinion.

As another artist, downvotes tell me that there's something about the image someone didn't like, and working that out myself and trying again can be highly constructive. Now I only get positive numbers and no indications of anything. No one's going to post "constructive" feedback in the comments. No one ever does that.

Slightly over 53 opinions within a few hours is not quite an accurate sample size when the userbase is in the hundreds of thousands.

The third option is the best by far. I like the hiding mechanism, but without downvotes discoverability of artwork with low upvotes has been destroyed. Shitposts overwhelmingly full the low-upvote section of derpibooru, and low-upvote art is impossible to find. Tldr: #3

1 or 2.

Downvotes were pointless.

Troll art doesn't care about downvotes.

If people were going to dismiss you criticism then they wouldn't care about downvotes either.

People who actually would grow from downvotes would grow better from actual comments with actual criticism.

Either 1 or 3 would be better than getting rid of downvotes entirely. People should be able to make their opinions known, and if someone can't handle the thought of their image being downvoted, that's their problem, not ours.

Or alternatively it can make people strongly think about their vote one way or another. There shouldn't thus be shame in down voting but by golly it should be thought out and justified IMO. That might make people think.

You have no way of knowig who was abusing the system and who wasn't.

The mods do though, and they can ban people for abusing that system.
That would take more effort than just removing the system all together though.
