I have purchased "No downvotes, please" Unicoins power using my 75 unicoins

enter image description here then I asked a silly question Is Unicoins a April Fool’s Stunt? (which got almost 8 downvotes) how it is possible for users to downvote my question as this power removed downvote arrow from my question !!

You have been fooled by Unicorns after buying this power. Only you can't see that downvote arrow.

Maybe your mining efforts are found to be insufficient.

You should mine enough Unicoins to be able to buy this again so that it not only is active for you.

This will totally work! Also, all downvotes will then be deleted within 24 hours!


It turns out the Unicoins are an April Fool's Stunt :)

By the way all the cool stuff you buy with unicoins only affects your profile. Oh, how frustrated I was that my reputation hit the skies only for me. I expected my girlfriend to say something of the sort of "My hero!!!" at least, while she went "Oh well...". So yes, downvote arrows are removed, but only for you. I still see a nice and shiny(and tempting) downvote arrow next to your question. Not much of a help, right ;)


I don't think it makes you immune to downvotes. I think the purpose of the power was to remove existing downvotes from existing questions.

Overall the Unicorn/Unicoin thing is just a April Fools thing.

    And I don't think it actually works. – user257126 Apr 1 '14 at 10:22
  • How can you claim its not working, heretic? – Angelo Fuchs Apr 1 '14 at 10:30
  • I haven't claimed anything. It is simply an opinion. That's why its a comment. – user257126 Apr 1 '14 at 10:32
