If you mean the arrows above and below the "current number of votes":

(Screenshot from → How do I mark the best answer to my question on this site?) mark_this_answer_as_correct

The "up arrow" is for upvoting an answer/question [+10 "karma points"],
the "down arrow" is for downvoting an answer/question [-1(?) "karma point"].

To view what does a button or a menu entry, the best way I know is to enable extended tips (menu Tools > Options > LibreOffice > General). Then you get an help tip when you move the mouse pointer on the button or the entry menu.

@manj_k, Thanks for the excellent answer. However, looking at your screen shot I got jealous because my browser doesn' t the little text window "mark this answer..... May I propose to add this information with the picture into the FAQ · How does karma system work?. I read there, but did not find the explanations for the buttons. (Or I might need glasses!!!)

@ jean-baptist Also thanks to you. However, the extended tool tips in LibO don't work here. I tried it. I also had a look at my browser (Firefox) but didn't find a possibility to display tool tips.

It's me, I misunderstood your question, I did not understand that it was not about LibreOffice but about askLibO
