Thumbs Up!!!
Maybe you can add a "thumbs up" count to the post, so people know how many agree with this post.
Don't need an email notification, got enough spam already. Default that to no please.... smile.gif

Call it 'Hi-Def'

I suggest mirroring what Amazon uses to self-moderate commentary. Add a 'Helpful' / 'Not Helpful' (or whatever you want to call it).

It allows someone to quickly skip over ranting when they '0 of 45' people found this comment helpful. it also discourages the addition of baiting / snarky posts from some of the more vocal members.

I have voiced my opinion and won't say any more except that I guess I have a weird way of looking at things. What you want to do will make me feel uncomfortable on this site. I have a 100mbps cable internet connection but wouldn't join Facebook or Twitter if you paid me to. Nor would I ever post an avatar of me on AVS or list my equipment (I feel listing your equipment is only bragging) on AVS. I am not anti social but I do value my privacy.

I'm pretty sure I remember when I signed up, it said NOT to list owned equipment but maybe that only applied to the signature section.

I never noticed this until now, too, and likely won't use it anyway. I express my gratitude in words.

If there is any bigger scourge of the internet it is the utter pollution of every web site with (long string of expletives) "Like" buttons everywhere. I don't (more expletives) care that someone reading some comment or whatever "liked" it. This I do not need to know. And bloody Facebook links everywhere.

What to call the new button? Call it "off."

Totally agree. I would have clicked the 'like' button on your post 10 times already (what, you didn't like the 10 AVS emails you got showing my appreciation?).

I appreciate the other site that have Thanks and a list of users who have thanked the user.
It adds to the enjoyment and fosters civility.

LOL same here. I guess I'd need to know out of the entire AVS community, how many people HAVE used it/do use it. And if it's disproportionately smaller to the numbers that don't use it, I'd have to question why we're giving it ANY attention at all. Just from this thread, hardly any uses it and quite despise it (hence we should move on and focus on other more important things).

Call it anything as long as there are no statistics kept or other incentives to try to accumulate "status" on AVS. People posting "+1" all the time just to pad their post counts are bad enough.

Never noticed that thumbs up thing....where's the thumbs down? Hovering and getting click if this is helpful seems pretty self explanatory. Still not going to use it....unless there's a thumbs down, then maybe.

I voted 'other' and would like either 'net cred' or 'bro points'.

Do girls get bro points!?!?

Of course!

Erm.... If you want, I mean. tongue.gif

Looks like "Thumbs Up" has won....

But I am a tad bit curious....rolleyes.gif
I just read a post in the Audio/amps, receiver thread by a poster who has 1 post, and joined AVS yesterday... and he has 10 "thumbs up" already? eek.gif

You get 10 points for registering. cool.gif

I was wondering about that too.tongue.gif

Anyway, "thumbs up" is fine
post #83 of 100
How long has that button been there? I honestly never even noticed it before!

I prefer +1.
post #84 of 100
I gotta give a "thumbs up" to Thumbs Up—even though I voted for +1.eek.gif
post #85 of 100
I'm seeing several members who may only have a couple of posts but they have 10+ Thumbs Up showing in their profile. When I look at their posts I don't see the "See who thought this was helpful" icon, so I assume no one has "Thumbed up" these posts.

I'm just wondering how the "Thumbs Up:" count in our profiles is being calculated? The numbers I'm seeing are just not making sense to me.

Is something wrong or am I just misunderstanding how the Thumbs Up process works?

It would be nice if you treated this more like a Thanks button showing the users who have thanked the users.

I believe this promotes civility.

Apparently we play by 'Special Olympics' rules. Everybody got 10 to start.

Do these 'thumbs up' expire? I had 56 yesterday and now I'm down to 53.
post #89 of 100
They don't expire and I don't see anything to indicate any of yours were removed.

It's all good. Maybe a member who gave me a few deleted their profile or something. All I know is I lost about 3 points but it's no biggie. Just curious about how the 'system' worked.
