KenfromMI It let me do it this time. Upvotes are just nice ways of telling someone you appreciate what they contributed. Downvotes are very rarely used and are usually based on the Blue vs orange team war that we have going on here. To put it simply I am on @Team-Blue and some guy named Austin is on @Team-Orange we occasionally do something to annoy the other team but it is ALL in the spirit of good fun!
Also, when you go to a profile you will see something called reputation. That is the total # of the upvotes someone has received.
