OSNews, Generic OSes Now that the holidays are upon us (happy holidays!) and the year is about to end, we at OSNews thought it time to finally lift the veil a little bit on the next version of OSNews - OSNews 5. I've hinted at this next version of OSNews here and there in the comments, but we think it's time to make it all a little bit more official by taking in some initial feedback.

Voting down?

I had always hoped that voting down would eventually go, but I haven't read anything like that (sorry if I missed it).
We at InsanelyMac have always only allowed "Like This".
This has taken care that there is absolute freedom of speech (of course within the rules) and absolutely no petty wars or zealotry.

Please, don't bring this up again. Great that "like this" works on your site, but that doesn't mean it works everywhere. We have debated this at length several times over, to the point where I pulled out the cold and hard statistics to prove to you that you, despite your claims, barely received downvotes at all.

The voting system will remain as it is. It works. Perfect, no - but perfect enough. The redesign is challenging enough as it is with so little manpower and manhours.

Believe me, I am aware of that.

Nah, if you say something completely moronic you should be downvoted.
