I have made a lot of questions lately. But yet , another one is coming.
This question is a suggestion.As you can see lately , questions on meta tend to have a lot of arguments,discussion.And I usually see that the VOTE UP,VOTE DOWN button are use for standing agreements or disagreements. Which is not the purpose of those buttons. Because vote down means that the post is poor,not good. But in discussion , no one is right or wrong.Every one have their rights to express their believes or what they are thinking.
My opinion: we should create a special tag called "Community Attention"
If a question is tagged by that tag,....
that question and its answers shouldn't be link to reputation change on the site.(because it hurts someone feeling to make them feel like they're wrong on trying to say what they want.)
we should change the vote up , vote down into "agree" and "disagree" buttton. After a user press either of the button , the voted are then shown in a bar in percentage of agreement and disagreement and no reputation is deducted or increase from disagreement or agreement.
Let the community argued in a creative way. And which one got the most "agree" vote of more than a fixed number (created by moderator), it should be the right things to do for community at that time.
I think this is a more efficient way to make our community stronger. Everyone will feel more free to share what they think than it was now , becaused of that Vote-down. To make it associate with the Stack Exchange mottos:
We aren't running it, the Community does.
Thanks for reading
I'm really looking forward to see "Community Attention" tag Xb
PS. What is the purpose for meta if you guys aren't accepting new ideas or any complaint
