Like/Dislike Trial

Hey all,

I've switched on a feature that has always existed on this forum, but not used before. The like/dislike feature.

Under a person's avatar, you can click 'Like' or 'Dislike' (much like Facebook.. except we actually have the 'Dislike' option). The 'points' total is added to each time you receive a like, and subtracted from when you are disliked.

I'm interested to hear thoughts on if you think it's worthwhile/fun/whatever

I think it's a good idea when it's positive.

My only reservations would be if 1 or 2 people constantly got dislikes and it is blatantly obvious.

Another scenario might be if a guest comes along, but notices that there is a dislike button. They may be discouraged from saying anything in case everyone "dislikes" it.

I'm not sure if that is essential, but it'd be good if it showed you which posts were liked/disliked!

I think the information provided in the Like/Dislike function should not be for the user to see, and hence will not be for the user to see.

I take it this was removed?

It was indeed.
