Reply to "Confusion Over Niche Voting"

Currently, there are 44 Niches, and NO redundant proposals.

However, only 10 of the 44 have a 100% approval score. 

This means 77% of the proposed Niches have met with resistance by the voting community. Clearly we need some voter education

I have two solutions which are completely agnostic to the level of effort required to implement! 

  1. Force rejection votes to select WHICH reason they are using to reject a Niche. (a) Redundant, or (b) Violates ToS
  2. Exclude members from receiving community rewards generated by Niches they voted against.

I can hear the argument against this—"but then everyone will vote YES for every Niche." —Exactly. IF it is redundant, or violates the terms of service, it should be rejected, and there won't be any rewards to be had anyway. 

I'd say don't worry about percentages. If your niche is appropriate, it will make it to the next round (you only need 50+% approval rate, after all). I was miffed myself at the beginning because my suggestion was CLEARLY unique but got over it once I realized it'll pass anyway.
