How do you find down votes. lol

+10 votes
Wondering where the 2 down votes came from. I just looked at my wikitree Just wondering where do you find  the comment or questions that have the down votes. lol how funny. There is no such thing  as  a dumb question or answer in life . Everyone is learning and some may not be as educated in researching or comments but we as wikitree members  share information to learn from each other and maybe just maybe that answer that seems off may break the wall someone is looking for.

 But, wikitree is still awesome.

Mary, don’t you worry about votes. And you’re right, there aren’t any dumb questions. The vote arrows are small and close together, so maybe someone just hit the wrong one and moved on without checking.  Who knows? 

I’ll tell you one thing, there are some giants on here, and then there’s me, but by asking questions, I’ve learned some very important skills that improve my profiles and especially because of our reliance in sourcing our facts, 

So, you just keep on asking! Breakthroughs do happen in Wikitree.

thanks for your reply.    Hey at least  I know that people are reading my comments/questions. Sometimes even people misbehave  and just like to play around. lol  or not. It  is grand we can share  information  agree or disagree with them.  Onward and upward we shall go. Thanks   for your reply
I agree that there are no 'dumb questions' and that the votes shouldn't be worried about. I know that I've gone to hit 'vote up' on my phone and it registered as a downvote. I felt terrible and changed it to an upvote, but the count stays on my profile. I try not to worry about it, as the person that commented just sees my upvote.

I wish I knew the answer to that too Mary. It is my personal policy to never give down votes, but unfortunately a careless thumb on the ipad has allowed one to sneak in somewhere and I cannot find it to remove it.

I did the same thing to Lynda, gave one somewhere. So we will say you gave me one, and I gave you one, and we will all live happily ever after.
