Greetings from your administrators! We have come to realize that Iwaku is now TOO BIG to expect our population to be able to use negative ratings responsibly and us still be able to enforce it. Over the past year we have had multiple cases of people using ratings for spiteful vengeance, to gain notoriety for negatives, and people using them because they didn't agree with the opinion of the poster. All of which go against the spirit and purpose in which we wanted these to be used. :( With Iwaku as large as it is, we're no longer able to effectively find and punish individuals who abuse those negative ratings. If staff are incapable of making sure a feature is used responsibly and respectfully, it is better for all of us that we remove it to prevent future issues. From this point on if you want to show displeasure with a member's post, you will have to use your words and be accountable for them! All negative ratings have been DELETED and replaced with positive and neutral options. :D We hope that some of the new ratings will be fun and useful for you! My personal favorite is the new Hug button. <3 WHAT IS YOURS?
