Down vote ideas

Down vote ideas

The current Idea model appears to be:


1) Submitted idea

2) review idea

3) approve idea

4) seek feedback on idea by voting

5) ....

6) profit!


However that means that there's skewed feedback: out of a population of users that is not well understood, 2 votes might be 100% of interested users, or it could be 1% of all users, and there's no mechanism for negative feedback other than not voting..  Suggestion is to add a downvote feedback mechanism to gather negative as well as positive feedback.

Status changed to: New Idea

This is an interesting idea. I will bring this up with the broader Idea Exchange group. 

I guess the best status here would be "Under Consideration" 🙂

In the meantime, I guess negative feedback can be submitted via comments. The comments are considered when decisions are made whether to implement the idea or not.
