Quora - Downvote
As a part of my daily routine I read whenever I am free and I mostly read stuff related to design field. I used to read various question/answers from quora in my laptop till now. Few days back, I downloaded the app and was reading from it directly as mobile is handy compared to laptop. It was a good experience indeed.
Today morning, I came across one really interesting question knowing about real fact and figures about Gujarat state (India). Being a Gujarati, I read the whole answer though it was too long. Then I upvoted it because I liked the way it was given in detail. Then my eyes rolled over to other side of the screen where other options like share, WhatsApp and more was given.
Together with that I saw a download sign and I was curious to know what happens If I tap on that option.
My perception was that may be answer of the question may get downloaded as a text file or something or may be screenshot of the same may get downloaded.
But to my surprise it got downvoted. Unexpected experience.
I got to know the purpose of the same only when I tried. But I feel the placement of the downvote is wrong in the app.
I feel user should be made well aware about the things that he does. He or she should get a clear idea about the icon that is placed and what will happen by doing that. It’s good that you are allowed to again upvote the answer if by mistake you have downvoted.
Either the sign of downvote should be changed or the placement of the button should be somewhere near to upvote so that user knows the exact purpose of the button that is provided and can be used wisely thereafter.
