I noticed some minor problem in the design of SO (and probably other Stack Exchange Network sites). So, I emailed them with the issue, and they replied me with a link to Stack Exchange Meta, so I posted it here and I got comments saying that the question is not clear and edits and a downvote! It's just a 2-line text saying:
Button styles do not look good on iOS Safari!
They first deleted my "bug" tag, and added a "feature-request" tag! This is not a feature I'm asking for, I've just noticed something wrong and I want it to get fixed.
Then I received a comment with 2 upvotes that I need to clarify the question!
And then I got an edit in which they just reversed my negative and positive words like:
all -> none
are not styled -> are styled !
Does that mean I should not say something when I think it can improve the site?
What's with the downvote? You just see a comment from someone with high reputation and think they must be right let's punish this stupid poster?
Here is the post.
People have edited my post so it's clear for them, but I'm still getting downvoted! I also added a screenshot, even after this I got downvoted.
It is a fact that "people don't read", there's a lot of research about this, you can search for results, the same thing happens here, I don't understand why everyone wants not to understand this.
You can't wake up someone who's just pretending to be asleep.
We all know that my question was not read completely, even here in this post I'm not sure if all downvoters have read the complete post and answer.
And we all know that criticizing someone who is an SO employee (according to comments) gives everyone the impression of me being wrong, before even going through my issue, while reading my post they have this negative attitude and that explains the downvotes. This is also a well-known human behaviour. Imagine a wise old man wearing tie and suite, against a hippy style kid are arguing, no matter what they say, most people look at it with this attitude of the kid being wrong.
And for that reason people even make stories to support someone who is predefined to be right in their mind:
Since your question was not clear he removed the 'bug' tag but later after your edit he reverted back to 'bug'.
They have no idea if it was an edit with me involved or not, but just make stories to make it look right according to what they think supposed to be right.
And please, I'm not against edits, I do edit myself. Read the title again, I think it should be done only if absolutely necessary, And if after your edit is done you leave a comment saying that "you should clarify", *makes people just downvote, if you believe you can edit the question, edit it to a level that no clarification is needed, if you can't why would you edit?
*Why first reactions to a post can influence further reactions?
The answer is that "People don't read", wow, look at here, a downvote and a negative comment from someone important, must be crap, let's downvote it. Next please!
That's what happens everyday, that's why they developed software to show you fake revisions to see if you are paying attention. Cheers and happy downvoting!
