I'm not sure if this can be asked but since this discussion mentions that multiple downvotes with no explanation can be consulted on meta, I decided to just ask.
Anyway, I just noticed that I've been getting a downvote on most of my recent answers. I would more than understand if these downvotes were given to my older answers as I might not be as knowledgeable about certain topics before as I am now. However, these are the answers that have been downvoted:
- How does S-Class heroes' power compare to threat levels?
- Who are the Heroes that Sweet Mask acknowledged?
- Why does Iida call Ochako Uraraka-Kun?
- When is Naruto using Kurama one tail
If there's anything common among these answers, it's that they were recently given and are not without sources so they are easily verified. There is little speculation, if not none, that is needed as these questions can be answered with facts either from the manga or from other sources which made me wonder what could be the reason for the downvotes. If you think they need improvement or there's anything else wrong with it, it would be greatly appreciated if someone can enlighten me. I am always open to suggestions since I know I can always learn from them.
I'm not really worried about downvotes, as it is a user's right. What I'm worried about is that it is being used for something else. I am not 100% sure but I'm 99% sure this is just one user and I think I know who this user that's been giving me downvotes recently. My suspicion as to why is that I've been recently stating in my answers that it has verifiable sources as I've noticed recent answers with no sources on new questions in the main site.
It would be greatly appreciated if that user would just confront me directly and tell me what his/her problem with me is (whether on chat or here) instead of resorting to downvotes just because he/she don't like being given a suggestion on answers or that a sourced answer was preferred over his/her. If I'm wrong and I'm just paranoid, then I sincerely apologize to whoever he/she is that I suspected.
What do you guys think? Am I just being paranoid and should leave this be? I'm just worried other users would be deterred from staying on this site because of downvotes being used as some sort of retaliation or something else.
Update 1: As of typing this update, two more downvotes, likely from the same user, on the following answers happened: Which volume has Mikasa's backstory? Is King's luck natural or does he have some sort of "luck superpower"?
Update 2: Points were returned. Thanks to the admins/moderators! User still has not made any attempt to contact or give any reason for what happpened. Hoping this will be the last time this would happen to anyone else.
Note: I am not trying to provoke anyone here, just wanted to have some peace of mind.
