more importantly, it's a mechanism to show others when they look at your posts that other community members have flagged them as unhelpful or misleading or whatever.
sounds like a great way to feed into an echo chamber, the way it's set.
if 2 members get triggered and enter in a loop, like it just happened with me (it was always 2 down votes), then i'm suddenly and quickly "banned".
constructive criticism isn't easy to give, and it's even harder to take. nobody have to adjust or accept it, but i did my best to be constructive in every single post. i'm not spamming or doing anything really negative at all (other than reacting boldly mostly to you). that should be worth more than being moderated away.
funny enough, i think you were the only one to even give me any positive votes, even if out of pity.

There is no notification for when people downvote your posts. If you'd like that to change you can open an issue on GitHub
lol, nope, thanks. if i ever get to use nodebb for real, i'll see. but my experience here says it'd probably be a bad idea for me.
since my first post, 5 years ago, and the one from 10 days ago, i was trying to do basically 3 things: engage, give lots of feedback for improvement and enjoy the ride. from my perspective, i was just giving my best contribution.
perhaps i got just a bit lost in the way for this last iteration on the past week or so... i certainly got triggered. was it enough to justify my "soft ban"?
so far all i heard was "yes".
if so, why should i bother to continue here?
enjoy your toy. i lost all interest.
