    Hello,

    This week we'll be turning on post ratings. If you're not sure what that is, it's a replacement for the like button.

    See: http://xenforo.com/community/resources/post-ratings-taking-likes-to-the-next-level.410/

    There's an awful lot of choices when it comes to the configuration. If you don't want to read that documentation, here is a summary of how it works.

    Instead of "likes", there are three types of ratings (positive, neutral, negative). It looks like this:

    [​IMG]

    Yes your old likes will be retained. I am not sure whether or not this add-on is compatible with our Popular Content board. That particular add-on is no longer supported.

    There is no limit to how many buttons we can make (I think it caps around 15-20) however we should keep it simple with no more than 5. After the add-on is activated, it is very simple to add/remove ratings.

    I'll answer any questions about Post Ratings here, as well as take suggestions for buttons.

    So basically your suggestion is-

    like
    dislike
    dislike
    dislike
    dislike

    Why do we need 4 buttons that say the exact same thing? And categorizing them as "Natural" doesn't change that.

    Let's skip the retarded redundancy. We don't need any "Natural" options because if you have nothing to say about a post then you should just shut up. And we don't need four separate ways to say you don't like something. If you want to tell someone he's a faggot just post "Faggot".

    All we need is one button for "Like" and one for "Dislike".

    How about that "wtf"-button I asked for eternities ago?

    Maybe a tl;dr-button? Or is it better that someone posts "tl;dr" and the others like that post?

    Just... keep it simple. "Like" and "Dislike" or "Fuck You".
    Adding more options than two is only going to create confusion and unnecessary fragmentation.

    Edit: If you really need to have more than two, then the other buttons should be a meter for something outside of the "like/dislike" metric altogether. I'm not sure what kind of metric that would be though, so that's up to you people to find out.

    I do agree with what @oddguy was saying, if you were to use this system, what would the point of a 'neutral' option be? Wouldn't you just not rate it?

    Anyway, @Scampini the rating system wont work for EDF, by the sounds of it its more suited for forums where people go seeking information and help

    I remember the old ratings/feedback system from EDF in the form of "reputation" or something. That thing sucked and eventually broke.

    I fail to see how that is confusing at all.


    The former. Why should the first person to state the obvious receive 14 likes for doing essentially nothing. Give credit where credit is due, the man earned those tl;dr points

    Personal insults aside, this is still a bad idea.


    Maybe we should just have a button for every possible response to eliminate the need for posting at all.

    Given my current ratio I'm not likely to get constant negative ratings (and I'm just an example case), so I'm not sure why you're throwing this ad-hominem in here.

    Distributing the possible choices for limited feedback across many options isn't going to make it more indicative, but the opposite. Especially so when most of the options aren't even clear on wtf they're supposed to indicate. A "like" and "dislike" are completely clear on what their purpose is and what they convey, while pretty much all other suggestions you've brought up so far could mean anything at all depending on the context. This makes them almost completely worthless as a metric.

    Charts are always fantastic and wonderful, but this is a chart that is heavily depending on the community at hand and therefore cannot be used as a direct comparison or even a probable trend for our case.

    That may be, but it doesn't make your specific suggestions less stupid and redundant.


    Convincing semantics... wait, no. Not really.

    Maybe buttons like "wtf" shouldn't be counted at all. You can click them, but they don't amass on any counter.

    Your points are based on theory because the system hasn't been tested yet. It's like trying to debate whether or not Austrian economics works in practice. People can talk but at the end of the day there's no way to know for sure.


    The point I'm making is "who gives a fuck"

    Is anyone really trying to analyze the metrics of someone's post ratings? I think it would be funny to mark a post gay. It would be even funnier to spam someone with "faggot" ratings. If the "zing" button could make a sound effect I'd use it all day.

    Yes hello welcome to EDF a place where we dislike stuff and receive likes for it
