I laugh about society....

So many people are worried about if someone likes them or not.....Popularity contests.....Cracks me up it does.

Like any of us really know each other, or will ever meet in the first place.


I don't like any of you !

Would anyone else like to see this feature added to the forum.  If you add it a swear I won't dislike everything Tigg's says :w00t:

If everyone agreed with what I said - then what would be the point in saying it?

Discussion is designed to create consensus. If Consensus already exists, then there's nothing to be discussed.

I personally think that the like button is shorthand for "I agree with you".  At least - that's the way I use it, as making a post saying "I totally agree with you" is fairly redundant to the discussion. On the other hand - If you disagree with someone, then you should post the reason why you disagree.

These are discussion forums, after all.

I'd hate to see threads devolve into being just an opening post, with just a number of likes and dislikes registered against it. In general - that's what polls are for.

How about instead of a like / dislike button a sexy picture is a must for each female member?

I guess for the females, the males should do the same.....


Now, that would be fun !

I'd rather see another "Like" button for the extremely beautiful pics of our female members.  There's too much disliking and not enough liking in this old world of ours, imo and nothing deserves a "Like" more than a nice pic of a pretty woman.

(Only saying the same as Sakari, I know but I never read the entire thread before posting.  Sue me.)

I doubt Saru & the Moderation Team would allow pictures of male members.  'Tis a family site, after all.

Mmm, I dunno. It kinda lets you know if that 'martial arts expert takes on 20 cops' video is for real before you spend 8 minutes watching it...

I find it useful, if it's got a high dislike it's usually not worth watching.

Actually I've seen plenty of forums with a thumb's up and thumb's down which keeps score and doesn't prevent anyone from posting thier own lame opinion too :td: :tu:

Likes, dislikes.  Tomato, potato.  Doesn't matter what it is.  Thing 1 and Thing 2 will end up posting their opinions anyway because you know how these forums work, they create stories for the unexplained numbers and letters and try to solve the mysteries of whether to have a like or a dislike button.  And we all know how this ends.  Or maybe not.  Okay I'll stop typing now because sometimes my fingers don't know when to stop typing, lol.  Like the saying goes, if you have nothing good to type, don't type anything at all.... hence the like and dislike button mystery.  Posted Image

How about yet another button for telling people who "Like" your post that you don't want them "Liking" your post and they should keep their "Likes" to themselves in future?

Cheeky beggars.

I think it would bring too much negativity to the forums. If you 'Like' something you can click and show support. Why would you want to go out of your way to tell someone they have done something that warrant a 'Dislike?'

Back to the question :

Why is there no dislike button....


When Saru was working on updating the site, he saw the section for dislike buttons...

None of them looked well, some were to big, some were to small.....None of them looked ......" just right "


Saru searched and searched for a " just right " dislike button, but could never find one.....If Saru could find a " just right " dislike button, we would have one.




That is my answer, and I am sticking to it......And this is obviously for fun, for those that do not see obvious things :)
