The problem is that once you downvote a post, the odds that you constantly check for improvements to reverse the downvote of the post are close to nonexistent.
I think that by implementing the following suggestions will drastically increase the willing to improve the poor posts:
- Add a section with a list of all the downvotes posts that have been edited after you downvoted them
- Consider making minor changes to the vote-locking system to allow more flexibility on downvoted posts (that are edited after your downvote)
- Create a new badge for vote-reviewing X number of posts on your downvote list
To successfully 'vote-review' a post, you will have to chose between:
- Remove the downvote
- Leave the downvote
Once you correctly review a post, it will will disappear from your list.
Also, the name for the badge could be something that suggests a second chance was given
