Description

The title basically says it all: a comment voting system, just like on pretty much every other website in the world. Also, being able to filter the comments would be nice as well (most votes / oldest / newest / highest ranked members who commented etc.)
Maybe comments with too many downvotes (let's say 5) will be  removed automatically in order to prevent spoilsports, spam, advertising, trolls... the list goes on; you get the idea.

Would love to see such a feature in the future!

This is a brilliant idea, because it gives an incentive to comment

I'm really neutral with upvote but about downvotes, I'm really concerned about it as some member downvote post that contains opinion which do not match theirs, "I hate/dislike you" reasons and possibly downvoting quality contents. But sure, downvoting can be useful if used correctly and not abused to downvote post that violates the rule, inappropriate contents but the bad side of downvoting seems to outweight the good side of downvoting.

So I would see upvote but not downvote, unless if there is a moderation for it.

I agree! there has been multiple instances where I wanted to "like" someone's comment!

maybe comment likes can give you extra XP :)

I think if a comment has -5 votes or more, it should be hidden with a spoiler so others can click to see what it is, but not deleted without a mod looking at it.

A feature similar to this will be introduced with the updating of forums. Comments and forums will be integrated in a way and become almost the same. And if I remember correctly, and upvote and downvote system will be introduced for them.
