The ability to down vote. (Some ideas are just silly)
Scrolling through some of the various ideas on different sub genres given to give feedback on, I've noticed myself shaking my head at some of the ideas. Unfortunately there isn't any representation for people to disagree other than the comments section.
Having a Reddit style system would be really efficient to get good ideas to the top of the list. The higher votes would push the good ideas to the top. The more down voted ideas should get pushed to the bottom.
Something to consider.
I undestand the concept, but, I feel that with every posted idea, there is allready a feedback comment option, which is better than a simple up / down voting system. For the most part I can only engage and express opinions on subjects I understand and can communicate my thoughts, without simply down voting a subject because either I do not care or understand. I would prefer an up vote comment which is more user friendly, rather than creating a negative attitude community impacting on subjects without rational thought. The idea for debate here could be implemented but only if credible comments are associated with a down vote, and a quick way to remove unjustified spam votes. Thank you for reading.
It would also be awesome if they can limit the amount you can upvote and downvote in a month. So in that way people can use their votes wisely and not just spam.

Cool idea I'm dying to use! lol

not because of silly ideas but it gives a better view about idea's in general.
It would be nice to see how many want an idea versus how many don't.

So getting lots of votes and then devs looking at those ideas - would not be good enough filter?
Eurogamer has a similar as suggested for comment fields of articles, they list number of votes and current balance. Not sure that is better.

I'm sure that Xbox, as they read through these, can see the really bad ideas and just don't worry about those suggestions. The downvote button might be abused when we don't really need it.
I don't like the idea of downvoting as that is an easily abused feature, but I definitely we think that we should be able to flag ideas for moderation.
I agree with Ackis.
In otherwords youre asking for a system that would so easily be abused? HELL NO! We would lose so many good ideas because people abused the system
Or at least have more moderation - let us flag them as duplicate, or out of scope or something.
I agree with FearedNightmare; repetitive or trollish ideas shouldn't be on here.

Sounds like a good idea!
After a certain amount of downvotes it should be flagged so that a Staff member needs to evaluate if it has a purpose on the site or if it's just trolls
Mistress Sara commented
interesting idea. Finding a way it won't be abused is my only concern. I do like the idea.
PlayStation fans will down vote all the ideas.
Would be very nice

I feel something like this would be a good idea but it would need to be done right as it would pander to trolls. Trolls are everywhere, wheres Dovakin when you need them!
