Yeah, because we totally need more drama here after all :)

There's another forum I post on (sports-related) and they instituted a green/red dot system a while back to signify your approval or otherwise of a post and it's only led to snot-flecked meltdowns, hissy resignations and full-on "dotting wars".

I shit you not.

There seem to be a few on here that perhaps seem slightly less equipped to process disagreement with their viewpoints than some others are, and it may well drive them away.

How about a Pro Boards Karma like system. People would take their points seriousl. :D

Karma: Karma is a calculation of how many times an account has been Exalted or Smited by other members and reflects the nature of that members message board participation. Exalting adds to Karma by one point, while Smiting subtracts a point. The Exalt / Smite links are found below a member's Karma count in their profile, and their mini-profile in discussion board posts.

I have to admit I find it surprising that someone who made a demonstrative point of ignoring content they didn't like would want to institute a system along these lines.

That makes shit sense. A huge chasm between a completely anonymous thumb up 👍 or a thumb down 👎 on an individual post…..is much different than blocking 6 posters.

Please get this through your skull….it was NOT THE CONTENT….IT WAS THE NUMEROUS REPETITIONS. A year ago nibbler was on my foe list. I agreed almost 100% with him but all of his responses to his naysayers forced me to. Took too much time to wade through his and their paste upon paste upon paste.

Given your blocking of members and the whole What? drama that even pissed off a mod here, I think it's probably fair that people are going to assume that had Julien implemented this, you would be all over this forum giving thumbs down to posts instead of making your usual complaint posts about members here you don't like.

It’s one anonymous thumb….👍or👎...Sounds like your afraid of that. My hope was that a silent majority would participate here and we can get a sense of what is and what isn’t accepted here. Most every other forum I’ve witnessed uses that feature and it is pretty iron clad in letting folks know what is and isn’t acceptable. While I was disappointed in the moderators wants….I complied…. but that’s ok. I hope the moderators are looking at the number of formerly banned trolls LIKE YOU and spinningacorn that are returning and spamming the forum.

"Acceptable" is the wrong word. If someone posted, "Destroyer sucks, most overrated Kiss album ever" or "Kiss Alive III is easily the best Kiss live album" no doubt those would get many more 'thumbs down' than up. But does that mean those posts are not "acceptable?" If you want to see what is actually acceptable, just go look at the TOS. Otherwise, yes I do believe some here would just use that system to 'thumbs down' every post by posters they don't like, and cause 'contests' between others who would start to live by it. "Well, I got fifty thumbs up, and you only got twelve!" Who needs it.

I doubt anyone’s gonna care….until there are 10 or more thumbs in either direction.
Anyway. It’s no big deal. It was just a suggestion that I saw used on other boards.

Why would anyone be afraid of such a thing? Also a thumbs down wouldn't indicate what isn't accepted here as it could simply be a disagreement of opinion. You just want another way to complain about posters - that much is obvious.

Exactly.

If someone posted anything positive about Peter Criss - Steve would be clicking thumbs down every day. :lol:

Given your blocking of members and the whole What? drama that even pissed off a mod here, I think it's probably fair that people are going to assume that had Julien implemented this, you would be all over this forum giving thumbs down to posts instead of making your usual complaint posts about members here you don't like.
It’s one anonymous thumb….👍or👎...Sounds like your afraid of that. My hope was that a silent majority would participate here and we can get a sense of what is and what isn’t accepted here. Most every other forum I’ve witnessed uses that feature and it is pretty iron clad in letting folks know what is and isn’t acceptable. While I was disappointed in the moderators wants….I complied…. but that’s ok. I hope the moderators are looking at the number of formerly banned trolls LIKE YOU and spinningacorn that are returning and spamming the forum.
Why would anyone be afraid of such a thing? Also a thumbs down wouldn't indicate what isn't accepted here as it could simply be a disagreement of opinion. You just want another way to complain about posters - that much is obvious.
It would be a fair way to let your opinion known. One post….one account…. one vote.

Of course you ARE the master of multiple accounts. 😂

Why, so we can give you a thumbs down every time you call someone a moron or an idiot because you run out of more intelligent arguing tools?

Maybe this forum isn't able to be modified with that? This forum was around even before Facebook...
It's probably old and rickety.

"Acceptable" is the wrong word. If someone posted, "Destroyer sucks, most overrated Kiss album ever" or "Kiss Alive III is easily the best Kiss live album" no doubt those would get many more 'thumbs down' than up. But does that mean those posts are not "acceptable?" If you want to see what is actually acceptable, just go look at the TOS. Otherwise, yes I do believe some here would just use that system to 'thumbs down' every post by posters they don't like, and cause 'contests' between others who would start to live by it. "Well, I got fifty thumbs up, and you only got twelve!" Who needs it.
Exactly.

If someone posted anything positive about Peter Criss - Steve would be clicking thumbs down every day. :lol:
:lol:

And Steve would also give my two examples the thumbs-up. :thumleft:

He hasn't been around much lately, hope he's well.

I don't want to see my posts and/or favorite albums getting any Thumbs Down!

I don't think I'm up to it.

👎 Another formerly banned account pipes in. You surprisingly have lasted 5 months. GrandClassic has lasted even longer.

You must want to start WW3.
I have to admit I find it surprising that someone who made a demonstrative point of ignoring content they didn't like would want to institute a system along these lines.
That makes shit sense. A huge chasm between a completely anonymous thumb up 👍 or a thumb down 👎 on an individual post…..is much different than blocking 6 posters.

Please get this through your skull….it was NOT THE CONTENT….IT WAS THE NUMEROUS REPETITIONS. A year ago nibbler was on my foe list. I agreed almost 100% with him but all of his responses to his naysayers forced me to. Took too much time to wade through his and their paste upon paste upon paste.
I accept the point about repetition which ironically you made enough times - I think it was more the fact you were treating your discovery of the "ignore" function that had been there the whole time like you'd just broken the Enigma code! Fair enough - ignore content, but there's no need to make a big production number out of ignoring it.

I reckon the introduction of a like/dislike function would make the place even more like Mean Girls than it already is, and that you might well be one of the ones who takes it seriously enough to lose your shit if the thumbs-down started to mount up.

There's another forum I post on (sports-related) and they instituted a green/red dot system a while back to signify your approval or otherwise of a post and it's only led to snot-flecked meltdowns, hissy resignations and full-on "dotting wars".

I shit you not.

There seem to be a few on here that perhaps seem slightly less equipped to process disagreement with their viewpoints than some others are, and it may well drive them away.
The one I go on has a like button but no dislike button. Not a bad idea...

Our work intranet experimented with an anonymous thumbs up/down regime for a while, but all that happened was whenever some legendarily-unpopular boss raised their head over the parapet, there would be a pile-on and they'd end up with hundreds of downvotes :D They soon changed it to upvoting only!
