Why can't I use this yet? I don't see any up vote/downvote icons next to user's information. Can someone help?

You probably need to be "autoconfirmed" or something by being on the forum for a day or similar. It's to prevent abuse of the system by making sockpuppets, I think.

Oh, okay, I will see if you are correct by tomorrow, thank you.

Great addition I have to say! A lot of users were requesting this... or at least something similar to this anyways. It's good that you added it Joey.

I've experienced two of the flaws already. One regarding upvotes, one regarding downvotes.
Regarding upvotes, someone I'm friends with upvoted for my general behaviour on this forum, but I think it's because we're friends. I might be wrong here, but that's the impression I get.
I can see this being used to strengthen a friend's karma.

Regarding downvotes, someone gave me one because in his opinion I said that one idea he has wasn't practical, while I meant something entirely different with my posts on the topic.
I can see this being used when mad/butthurt to take revenge on the people who caused it.

I kind of think mad/butthurt people are probably likely to get the most downvotes for, at least in part, that very reason.
I do suspect downvoting would just engender hostility in general, but I believe Joey when he says he would remove the negative aspect if necessary, so I'm content to see the result for better or for worse.

I don't imagine I'll be downvoting people very often, anyway. If I'm going to call someone out, I'll tend to do it in a direct response on the thread unless it would derail the topic.

I honestly prefer the liking post system from SMBX: Revived. I'm not sure how other people would think about this, but liking or disliking a post has a much weaker influence than this. Decreasing a user's reputation will make that user angry and hate the other, because it has a too big effect. In SMBX: Revived's system, it just wouldn't matter. If you like a post because the poster is your friend, everyone will see it and won't pay much attention to it. If someone disliked a post from you because he doesn't like you, you won't get that marked on your miniprofile. I remember Ignoritus posting something here (which was probably deleted. If you didn't want other people to read this, sorry), and he said that this is a good out to tell a user indirectly that he or she isn't that appreciated in this community. That's a good point, but I personally think disliking a post with SMBX: Revived's system is a better out to this.

The system has to approve your account for karma upvoting/downvoting. You have to wait until you see the buttons.
