Everything needs your help! Voting is all fine and good for regulating the nodes, but it's just plain not enough. If you feel a node needs to improve, it's your job to tell the author so. /msg them, email them, whatever. Heck, put your own node on it and chalk it up as a victory. The bottom line is that it's not enough for Everything to grow as it is, it must have correct and concise writeups. A mere downvote is usually only discouraging to the author, and sends the wrong signal.

Now, if the node is terrible and you want it gone, that's another story. And I'm not advocating the disuse of downvotes. Use them all you want. Just tell the author somehow WHY you did it. Make the nodespace a better place to live in.

Thank you for your time.
