If this community dislike downvotes, that's fine with me, I am completely neutral about the downvote debate. But why not just have 1 arrow / heart / like? I don't even understand from the ToS what the true purpose of the "fun" vote is. It seems to be used in practice as a passive-aggressive downvote for controversial opinions as well as a genuine laugh react.
It's nice that Saidit exists as a free speech alternative to Reddit, and it does things its own way (the pyramid is a nice touch). But, my first impression is that the voting system just seems too ugly and unintuitive for me. Plus the counter + timestamp are bulky:
2 insightful - 2 fun - timestamp The hyphens give the half-second impression that you have a negative score as well.
