It's the first time of me hearing you got downvoted. As I read in the comments, it was something automatic and meant not personal but in fact - it's not. How could you know it? I think the least you deserved was a message explaining the downvote.
You're one of the greats here, and many people came to HIVE just because of you. What is happening behind the scenes is pretty mad but I know we can do a lot better. The engagement often sucks, especially if you're new to this place. There's a big chance, you won't make it past the first week.
Have a wonderful day @jaynie!
