or ?

Should we get with the times of current social media and validation response, or should we keep our traditional forum values?

I feel such things could be used for bullying, and so my initial reaction is "hell yeah". But since other people will be able to use this means to express their opinions, no.

It doesnt matter to the shitposters but I think it would be useful in the gear forums. Good advice will be liked and upvoted and then dummies get disliked. Easier to figure out what is good advice and what is shit advice

I appreciate the irony that, like the EU referendum, the site mods don't actually have to listen to a thing we say

But yeah we should also poll outside the pit. Monkeys arent a great gauge for the rest of the forum

I for one think that this may be a brave new frontier in UG history
Or a dumb one, I say we give it a while and see

As long as it doesn't lead to a "kudos" system like on lame forms, where users compete for a high number. Probably leads to pandering and the worst type of shitposting.

The consequence is that we no longer need to post a message to agree with, +1 or a post
Is this a good thing or will it inhibit posting?

People will still post +1 if they want to add to a point. I think its fine

ATTICA! ATTICA! ATTICA!

Seriously though, so long as it doesn't devolve into the sort of situations you get on Facebook where rational thought is "outvoted" in certain cliques/communities (for example, I see the Brexit or USA2016 threads suffering from it), it should be fine

and we can shun people who like their own posts

someone put a thread with a link to this thread in a few of the bigger gear forums and the Site Suggestions forum

Best to keep the discussion in one place

I'd do it but I'm out using the mobile site and its raining on me

Yeah I thought about the same for the music theory threads in MT. Also in more serious threads in the Pit I often cba to actually post but I agree with posts sometimes and I don't want to just post "" in a serious thread when I have nothing to add.

As long as there is no Dislike button introduced then I'm ok with this

Don't try make this place like the columns, it's a different crowd and we aim for more considered discussion.

That sounds like a terrible idea. Great way to undermine the likelihood of having interesting conversations.

edit - changed my mind... just no dislike buttons

You can still have conversations. If likes matter so much that youre afraid of saying something thats your problem, not the site or the system.

It's not fear or anxiety so much as placing value on making socially desirable statements and avoiding undesirable ones.
