I think it needs to be limited; like for every 200 posts you get the ability to +/- a post.

If you submit a post that gets +10 you have the power to ban a user for a day.

Former coach of the year award winners cannot be banned.

These are all brilliant ideas.

The thing I like about this, is that Jeffb will get blamed for a lot of the neg rates. "It was Jeff. He has so many ratings at his disposal!"

We'll have to start a "Janet looks like Mike" thread; he won't be able to resist using them all to show his displeasure.

Here's an example of a site using vBulletin 3.8 that shows who liked the post. It's one line that says 3 users names plus N others like a post.

The other board I'm on has just a like option where you can see who liked yours and other ppls' comments. However there is no dislike. People can report though (ie. press report) but that rarely if ever happens.

shouldbe more like reppower.

something where trolling should be frown\d upon.

something like if someone is in the negative rep they will have some limitations to their account, ie cant make a new thread / or some other limitations.

but only people with 100+ posts can give out rep to have SOME control on rep power.


people with positive / negitive rep should be easily identified with some color.

dunno just some ideas

Yeah, sorry dudes.

It's gone. It's being abused and creating a lot of ill will amongst our members.

We should be talking about ball and not focussing on post ratings.

Don't like a post, make a counter point.

i think it did create animosity, people were whining about it quite often - and it's not like i'm here all the time and read all the threads, so i imagine it's even more common than i've noticed.

i think a 'thanks' button with no anonymity is a good idea - where the list of all 'thankers' is displayed beneath the post and everyone can see who thanked who. i mean, that saves the time since there will be less empty posts with nothing but "+1", "^this", "ditto" and such.

But thumbs up/down and anonymous at that - i just didn't get the idea behind that, it seemed totally pointless. if anything, it just added empty posts from people complaining about getting 'thumbed down' which cluttered and dumbed down the forum.
anyway, that's my opinion.

For what it's worth, my "bring it, bitches" comment was not out of anger. I liked the thumbs.

Getting a bunch of neg ratings is not always a bag thing anyways, given that many people probably stop to read that. I know that, for me at least, when some threads appear to be full of garbage posts, I mostly end up only looking at the ones with ratings, both neg and positive, because the neg ones can be either funny (in a good and bad way) or bang on and just made people butt-hurt.

If you're going to get rid of anonymity, just keep the thumbs up/down. Once we can see who is abusing it, I'll just log in with my 20 accounts and the good guys will win.

if you have 'thumb downs' or such without anonimity, it will cause a ton of drama, i've never seen that work well.

now thumbs up or likes or thanks with no anonimity is a time saver. you can also gamify it a little with badges/titles/achievements for certain numbers of likes - it can boost engagement level a little.

not a believer in thumbs down with or without anonimity, though.
