How many of you would like to see a "like" and "dislike" feature added to the forum? Similar to Facebook. I have heard this idea tossed around in the echo chambers before, and it turns out it is a feature that can be utilized on the site if it is something that could be found useful.

The pros of a system like this could be coming up with a "best solution" kind of thing in a trouble shooting thread rather than a user having to quote a reply and post just to agree with it. It could also be used to determine whether a user is a positive or negative influence to the forum. (Don't ban me!)

The cons obviously could be an abuse of the system by people holding personal grudges. Or the feature may not be used at all.

What are your thoughts on this? Vote up and post your opinion!

I'd personally like to see the feature added. I think it could be a useful tool when someone asks a question and one particular reply hits the nail on the head.

Also just to "like" a hilarious post that deserves some props!

Stuck.

Id like to hear peoples opinions on this rather than just see the votes. Lets get this figured out this week.

I think you should just keep it like FB and only add a "like" feature to this. Too many tards would abuse the "dislike" feature and tunr dot net into an average youtube comment section with half the responses flagged.

^ I agree with that. But I am not sure if we can just do one or the other.

RawRR?

I don't like how it operates on FB and whether it would work on here will depend upon whether enough people use it honestly. The most helpful threads are usually stickied and there's not a lot of trash in some of the sub forums anyway e.g. the How to section is 90% killer 10% filler. It's very easy to find the useful stuff in there.

I voted against it, purely because I hate how it works on Facebook, but I wouldn't cry if it was tested here for a while to see if it works any better.

I don't think it would add anything to the forum. If anything I think it would take away from it because many members may just simply hit like/dislike and not actually take the time to chime in which is always better IMO.

I don't mind the idea, however a trial period would certainly be advantageous.

Does it work similar to f/b where you have the members name as liking or disliking or more like youtube where it just gives a number? IMO the youtube implementation is better.

And I wouldn't mind trialling Coons idea either...

I say try it out. I don't think I would use it much if at all. I think if it were implemented then it should be like a youtube count system and that count displayed on the thread lists. This way you can scroll down the list of threads and avoid ones that have negative marks.
