Rating Contributions. Voting Posts

One thing that might change in my opinion is the "rating number". I want to know how many people 'upvoted' a contribution & how many people 'downvoted' it. A single number between a + and a - icon is less valuable to me.

Thank you for your suggestion. Regarded the ratings ( + / - ) the main ideas behind them are:
  1. We wanted to make ratings ANONYMOUS, so the rater can feel free to up- or downvote a contribution by someone else. On some social platforms you can see who voted for and against your contribution. They even send alerts for that. We don't like that for privacy reasons and we don't want to bother you with that. Most importantly, it also makes people vote differently from what they really think. This is not what we want (we aim for quality and reliability).
  2. We chose for a COMBINED number mainly for 2 reasons:
    1. SORTING BY QUALITY: We use the rating to sort the contributions by quality. This does require a combined number.
    2. SIMPLICITY. Having 2 numbers would be more complex and in our opinion in most cases will not provide much additional information.
