Just a thought.....

I have read a couple of threads recently about members displeasure about 'hatred' views (?) or threads not being 'as good as they used to be' in the good ole days.....

We operated a star system to show approval of a thread, would it be an idea to operate a 'x' as well as a '*' and then the poster and those reading it would get a 'feel' of the sentiment of those viewing..?

Just a thought........

Regards

Its already been suggested, sort of an anti star for posts you dont like..

Suggested and rejected...

I thought it was a good idea but you will probably be closed or moved to the bussiness board shortly...

I'll s&f before the mods pounce

Like a bonza badge and a cynical star?

We'd probably need 4 buttons thinking about it.

1) I'm a believer and I respect this thread/post.

2) I'm a sceptic and I respect this thread/post.

3) I'm a believer and I'm not impressed with this thread.

4) I'm a sceptic and I'm not impressed with this thread.

That way people can find the posts they are looking to take part in easier.

Star children can easily see posts which sceptics don't approve of yet believers do and expect chat appropriate to those ratings within that thread.

Likewise sceptics can see posts which believers don't approve of yet other sceptics do and expect chat appropriate to those ratings within that thread.

It's a win-win situation.

And the great fun comes from when people willingly walk into a thread which doesn't share their sentiment and attempt to supply their opinion to counter it.

We could even have a compo to name the buttons!!

CynicalM

Thanks for the info, I missed that one being suggested before....

It does seem to make sense though and it gives people to give a subjective view and consensus view....

Adding 4 or 5 buttons Over Complicates the issue and I can see this as why it was not adopted before, because everyone will want every option available... Just stick to what is there currently then ???!!

Cheers

Stars, as they are......are stupid, one way bs, set up for a positive, rather than realistic ATS visit.
Unfortunatly there is no disagreeing without creating a post that can appear trolling or flaming.
I see the most insane posts starred to the max, and I try to byte my keyboard as much as possible, but sometimes I just have to call stupid...stupid, but would rather just pull a star
.

Only way it would mean anything is if it had an add and remove stars, or as you suggested positive and negative feedback, otherwise it's like Candyland here, where the softening of society is shoved right up where the sun don't shine

WOW that is a fantastic idea, I think it would work really well.

I would suggest if there were a
feature, that it not negatively impact any added stars. It would just be a polling device, that way retaliating couldn't take anything away from the account standing. Of course, one shouldn't be allowed to be star and
a post, which requires further account tracking in the database.

In my experience, software feature creep can also make a mess of things. Thinking about it, it's good enough. So, just forget about the above.


 



Star children




And "Flag babies"?
