How about we (Immersion Topic)
How about if the users get the opportunity to explain why they upvote/downvote an article? Basically feedback for the article; why it is a poor article, why there should be more articles like it etc. And give users access to the opinions. It could be useful in selecting future articles to upload.
Why not to remove the whole up/down vote on articles, that feature is pretty much useless.
Well that's why I'm suggesting the feedback, so it becomes somewhat useful and influential to which articles get uploaded :D
