Sticky Let's get some votes in for the downvote button. How do you think downvoting should be implemented?
There's two options;

Up: You can downvote any comment. Everyone can see who voted, up and down.

Down: Downvoting is only optionally available for forum topics, set by the topic starter (no special role needed). Comments on other pages can't be downvoted.

P.S. You can't downvote this comment in the feed, you can in the forum topic.

It's not lazy. I can at least make it different from the actual ones and see if there are any powers missing or needed to be added. It's even more relevant now to have this feature because the data loss affected my Ustats and I would have to go through the same amount of time it took me to add them in again.

That's lazy and also wrong. Why do you want to make it different? at least doesn't work for you. The ustats you added are because I forced you to add to edit characters, so if your ustat is wrong, then Stat is definitely wrong as well.
You don't have to worry about data loss so much. I'm sure by the end of the week most users will be doing their own re-edits.

Aren't the classic versions of characters ultimately just the exact same character as the main base canon character just earlier on in the base canon timeline? If so, why do we need them? Seems like just two of the same character just at a specific part of their history. I get different versions of the character on the same universe timeline when they are temporarily powered up (or down) but if it they are both just base power versions, why have them? Am I just missing something on the classic versions then? Just my thoughts, I guess, but would certainly be willing to hear any reasons they should exist separately. I don't actually mind if they exist, I just don't see why they do.

I wonder how this happens. Since you have to upload an image for an item, there's always at least one connection. So someone has to manually remove that connection.

How about just deleting all those unconnected images? I'll make it impossible to remove the 'last' connection for an image.

@Galactus, this is actually one of the reasons why I wanted a search function for gallery images by user and characters. Early on I added some images but if I found later that they were duplicates and I didn't see a way to delete it, I just assumed removing the character and/or artist at the time would take care of it. Only found out later it doesn't. Now that I have image delete rights, I wanted to go back and find my unconnected images and delete them. I also sometimes want to add more characters to an image that I couldn't identify originally or found out might have gotten wrong but searching in the characters or artist pages that were also connected to that image are sometimes so large they are hard to find. So I thought searching by user-myself and character or multiple characters would give me a smaller set of images to look through and find it. That was just my thought there.

As for requiring an artist, I agree with @Ezio. Sometimes the artist isn't properly credited on some great images we find. I try to put them on everything that I can identify one for though. Have even added them (and characters) to images that other users have uploaded if I could identify them and they were missing. But I still wouldn't suggest requiring it though.

This might be too hard or complex to implement but something I'd like to see when people vote on battles is how easy or hard they think the victor would win the battle. For example in a Captain America vs Galactus battle people would vote in favour of Galactus stomping where as is in Captain America vs Iron Man people who voted Stark would vote for the part that says he barely won or it was a close battle.
Basically when you vote for someone, you have a secondary vote button for how well they'd win.

@Galactus Actually exactly that. So like after you vote for whoever, there's an optional secondary prompt that says easy, medium or hard in terms of how easily they'd win.
Its a bit of a long shot but the main reason why I asked this is because of the Superman vs Thor page. The fact that its so highly contested should show that it would be a hard battle for whoever wins but I've seen a few people say Superman/Thor stomps. I was wondering how many people actually think that way for either side.
@Taurus You mean in situations where you have that 1 guy who carries the team? If so then I've seen that a lot too.

@Galactus, another suggestion I have is a way to search your Gallery Images. Obviously, if you're just looking for a particular character or artist, you can just find them on their pages but I am thinking more along the lines of searching by user (uploaded by) to bring up all your own images for maintenance. I know there are images that I uploaded early on when I joined that I could clean up and add to more characters or even find that are not associated to any characters, objects, etc. that could be deleted and cleaned up as well. If I could find those, I could fix them up some and save some memory on the server too. Could that be added?

@Galactus, I know you're working on getting the sort features in our Battles pages to carry over past the first page which will certainly help if I am looking for a particular battle. However, when you've created enough battles that the number of pages you have to search is enormous, it's still difficult to find a specific battle. I know you can also just create the battle again as if it is new and it will pull it up but sometimes I can't remember every character I put in it, especially when you create a 16 vs 16 size battle. I was wondering if it would be possibly to create a Battle Search function where we could search with multiple selections like user (created by) and then maybe even multiple characters as well so that the search results would bring up all battles the user created with those one, two, or however many specific characters you search by that are involved in the battle on either team. Is that something that would be worth adding? Just a thought.

@Galactus, I usually do check to see it they already exist. The only ones I didn't recently was a set of requests for characters going into a universe the requester had just requested and gotten too so I just assumed they didn't exist since the universe was brand new (within a day for sure). Maybe I was wrong though. Also, on at least a few occasions, I have searched to see if they existed and didn't find them only to find it later after I had upvoted too. Maybe an occasional glitch there in those rare cases. I also noticed a few other times after I'd upvoted a character that I didn't find in my search for it but that existed under a different identity so I tried to start searching both superhero name and real name when possible too. Either way however, I'm sorry about that. I know that just creates extra work so I do try not to add duplicates and I've downvoted/removed many requests that I have found to already exist in the database too but I will still continue to try to keep getting better at catching those. Sorry again.

Also, forgot to mention/reply to your message above about looking into adding a search for battles by characters ("two or three"), it would be great to be able to search by as many as possible in a 16 v 16 battle. However, like I mentioned for the image search as well, if it just gets too messy, don't worry about it. It would be useful in some cases that I've come up with but I've survived without it thus far, so no big deal if it is more difficult than it's worth. Thank you!

Not going to happen. The reason I started this website, almost 17 years ago, was to have a simple way to compare characters (by power) from all publishers. That didn't exist then, and it still doesn't exist other than SHDb.
Stats are what make up the Class (that thing to easily compare).

I'm open to suggestions on how to improve the stat/class system. Even if we have to do a complete overhaul (again).

The only problem is that even the best system does not help if it gets ignored anyways. Not to mention that stats and especially superpowers are currently assigned randomly with the sole purpose of having a character reach a specific 'class' which matches the opinion of the editor.
Currently stats represent what class a character should have based on it's last editor's opinion, and have nothing to do with factual information.
A complete overhaul of the stat/class system, seems to be an almost impossible mammoth task, why I thought removing stats would be an easier solution.
Of course, having stats as a way to compare characters from various works of fiction is interesting, but only as long as these stats aren't just a representation of 'popularity' of characters.

I agree with you on almost everything you said. There will always be some interpretation of the facts.
The Class shouldn't even be looked at when editing stats. It's just a result of the stats/powers. Now that I think of it, maybe remove it from the edit page...

I see plenty people asking to edit (popular characters) because it has been a while (few months) since the last edit. How is that a good reason?
Some characters get edited multiple times a week. And still about 2/3 of the characters don't have any stat/power info.
Those are two things that should be improved at least. There's plenty more.

Removing the SHDb stats and just keeping the uStats is still on my mind. With some better filtering to ignore the excesses. This way we could potentially have more accurate stats. And the editing will be all about the information (bio, history, etc).

And I really need to improve the super power points system.
So much to do... :)

i think it would kinda be cool to be able to give places and weapons stats. and maybe even make battles between them; the powers and stats would be different like for the weapon its power, durability strength and speed also the powers would be different and for places, it would be: resources, net worth, population and durability like just imagine Stormbreaker and Mjolnir vs infinity gauntlet or Wakanda vs Asgard. Also when making a variation battle with a weapon the character would the weapon would get a higher stat in the battle. I think this could open a lot more fun possibilities and honestly, it could make the website feel more diverse.

1. It's been 10 months and 6 days, with updates since than.
2. This isn't a suggestion -> wrong topic
3. You haven't rated any movie yet, so what's the hurry?

I've set some deadlines in the past, but I hardly ever make them, so not going to do that again.

I wrote a whole comment on it and deleted it again, since there're too many ways to approach this.

It's either going to be no voting at all, or (just like Youtube) only upvoting. I don't like how Youtube works with the downvoting, but for comments I think it will work. You can upvote if you like the comment, or reply (and explain) if you don't.

@Galactus A good idea would be to just take the down-vote system out and only have the up-vote system if that's what you are saying.

I like that idea, I don't like the idea where users can see who down-voted the other users comment because then some fight will go on and I have to stop it. I mean I'm sure you don't like fights too. I'm Just trying to protect this website. I've been doing it for years.

@Jakcj You're assuming I think it's a good suggestion. It was just A suggestion. There are pros and cons to either having an anonymous or open voting system. The question is; do we want the bullies (user downvoting for no reason, or targeting a specific user) to stay anonymous, or should we be able to call them out on their behaviour?
I think with an open voting system, there will be way less useless downvotes, thus making your suggested 'repercussions' less likely to happen.

So, yes, I did think about the pros and cons.

That's the problem I have with, it's not that they are so called bullies. I mean I don't care how many times I get down-voted but these users on this site care about it a lot. I got carried away sorry @Galactus. Yes now I see that you have clarified it now. I always tell users that they shouldn't be offended by being down-voted and all but I can't stop them. So that's why I wanted to stop you with everything I could do. Because people just get offended about it for some strange reason.

@Jakcj: What about those of us who enjoy the conflict? Those of us who wake up everyday itching for someone to respond to our comment? Who intentionally say things to get a rise out of someone for our pure entertainment? What about us? Are you just going to turn a blind eye to us? What if we want to know who downvoted us, so that we can confront them about it? Make them accountable for their actions? You have to think about these things, man. It just isn't fair.

Once again, we shouldn't be caring about down-votes. It's more safe if we just remove the down-votes and only keep the up-votes. I know that everyone wants to know who uses the down-vote for abuse and all that but here's my question. WHY do you let it bother you so much? They are just points and nothing else and we shouldn't be crying about it if we get down-voted. Nobody on this site has said this except for me and @Ezio.

That's why I want to either get rid of down-votes or keep it anonymous. It's better this way, trust me!

Should have a better feature to give power ratings of a character other than one is more powerful than another because one's a Multiversal (tier 8) character and automatically stronger than a Universal (tier 6) character. For example, the original Superman DC comics character on here is a Universal character (we all know that) but we also all know that he can easily go toe to toe with tons of Multiversal characters on any given day. There's got to be a better way, isn't there?

I knew that, I read this info 2 + yrs ago. But why aren't your editors editing and giving the characters their proper tier levels then? Heck you boy Ezio even told me yesterday that they don't because there are some people who think a certain character is too high and other think it's low, so instead of giving the character it's true tier level, power ratings, they find a way to appease and please everyone by finding a way to compromise by manipulating the ratings. Heck I looked at all your editors, 3/4 of them have less editing than me and are between 15 and 23 yrs old and do not edit anything. You have a great website, heck you create codes and you're old enough to see that with a website with 900,000 pages of data but only 1000 and change users active in the last 2 months that something is wrong. Your editors are scared sh*tless to edit because if they don't get it right, then a certain someone doesn't thinks it's right, that they'll lose their editor positions that they are not using for none other more reasons then to say to their friends that they an editor on a website. check your editors activities yourself. I just want the characters to be given their true proper ratings based on facts and not for trying to please someone.

Maybe on superpower pages, sort people with that power based on what level they have that power (like, have a purple/blue/grey icon or border on the profile). Idk, just seems like a good way to categorize.

I only added Angel because we have Demon and Demon physiology while Angel Physiology doesn't have its counterpart. I mainly ask because Magic the Gathering has Angels as a pretty significant multiversal species and they're pretty non-demoninational only drawing from classical depictions of winged humanoids. There are a few other categories that could work, but I thought it might be nice to add for records purposes because of groups like the DC Archangels. But if not, that is perfectly fine.

1. I think Universes need to be upgraded. They should be available for editing. Currently they only look like fancy collections. Al they have are Discription/Inculdes Character section and comment section. It would be better if there was a history section also a image section. Though I think the image section should have certain restriction Like they should only have group images. Also we should be able add profile images to Universes.

I've looked into your idea a bit more. I can turn the user id into a hex code (for example: D704) and use that. We will run out of 4-digit codes after id 65,535. Currently we are at 57K.
I can create a separate table to generate user codes only for activated members, which is roughly at 31K. So we're not even half-way in 16 years. Guess that will be enough. After that, it will generate a 5 digit code.
I'm sorta live-updating my comment as I research the best way to do this. I'm just going to make a 5 digit code. That will give me over 1 million user ids opposed to 65.5K with a 4-digit code. And I don't need to create a separate table for it, I can just generate the code off of the user id dynamically.

Another 'live' update. What's the use of a 5-digit code, if we can just use the user-id. It's 5 digits, it's unique. We're only at 57% of them. Why not use the user-id?

So. If we really want a 4-digit code, I need to build a new table with those codes. (Not a huge deal). Or just use the user-id we already have.

I would like to hear from other users what they think about this.

That's great, @Galactus I just think it will be easier for communication with other people. Also, I had another idea, I just don't know if to many people would abuse it. You should be able to mute someone from ping ing you. Like for example, I'm not trying to get anyone in trouble, but just as an example. Azzahra pings me like a hundred times on every battle she creates and it get annoying, idk just a thought

A Friend/Ignore function is already on the to-do list.
