As many will have noticed with this new forum we have had a 'like' system where we can , .......errr, 'like' another person's post/comment/witty remark/helpful advice etc.

In order that we have a more balanced reputation system, I've pulled the giant lever on the server so we can now 'dislike' another's post if they are rude/insulting/stupid etc

Moderators and admins have the ability to monitor the system if necessary.

I've seen systems like this before and all they serve to do is reinforce cliques. The site that springs to mind has recently moved to a "like only" type setup. People on there used to have competitions to see how -ve they could make someone, for fun.

I'm aware of the pack mentality, which is why the system can be openly monitored by mods & admins in case anyone is tempted to do that here.

Not much of a 'balanced' system if it doesn't appear on Administrators' posts! :)

I think that was to protect us from being targeted by nasty people but a few of us have said we don't mind if we have one too. I certainly don't.

On the one other board that I post on that has a "like" system, it has worked very well, in that anyone with a negative score can be dismissed as a know-nothing troll, and they generally either sort out their act and behave nicely or stop posting altogether.

However it does rely on the fact that a person's "like" score is displayed under their avatar so everyone can easily see it.

Of course just because it works well somewhere else doesn't mean that it will work here...

I can see a little red down arrow and a green up arrow with a number in the bottom right of each person's posts. Presumed everyone could see that. Agree it should be visible to everyone for it to work.

I think BigRedX meant that the total 'Like' score should be visible, not just the number of 'likes' for a specific post?
Unless of course I've missed something - which is always very possible. :)

Great, now someone has 'Negged' my post #5. :)

Working well already this, don't you think?
Not likely to have any effect on what people post or anything, is it?

If it's going to be like evilBay's feedback system where one is in constant fear of being negged by idiots then I'm out.

As long as the mods can sift out the vindictive, unreasonable and immature "dislikes". Maybe the mods have given themselves a bigger job than they really needed.

Reputation points are shown on people's profiles.

It is hoped that this will rein in some of the confrontational and obnoxious posters who get personal in Off Topic - rather than get rid of Off Topic all together - which has been considered many many times.

My Feedback

Bass guitars with more than 4 strings
Questioner: How come you never play a 5 or 6 stringer Billy?
Billy Sheehan: "I dont need one, I have my hipshot for lower notes, and I can go to harmonics for higher notes"
Questioner: "do you own any"?
Billy Sheehan: " yes I have two or three, though rarely use them outside an ocassional studio set piece"
"I dont like to use them unless I really have to, as when a guy takes a 5 or 6 string bass into the studio, you see the engineers and producers, sighing and shaking their heads" :) (Smiles)
Billy Sheehan: " I have nothing whatseover against 5 or 6 string basses. I just belive that guys dont give themselves a proper chance on the 4 stringer first."
Questioner: How long is 'a proper chance'?
Billy Sheehan: " At least 20 years" (not smiling here, being serious)

If you hover over someone's name above their avatar, you can see how many total likes they have. I can see Monckeyman has 36 likes & daz has 14.
I think the like system is fun & if anyone takes it serious, then a life would be required :)
