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 :)
So you can. You've got 28.

EDIT: 29 now.

Cool, a hate button to go next to the like button :) Both should help build the cliques that will help this site become more like TB. I mean, why shouldn't those who whine the loudest have the most say? It works for the Tea Party over here. (yes, that is sarcasm)

The like system is wicked. The dislike system on the other hand enforces negative thought.

I think these neg things are favorites of cowards. They do appeal to one type of personality more than others.

I suppose it depends on how it gets used. I wouldn't use it just because I didn't fully agree with something (infact, I probably wouldn't use it at all), but i can see it being used for "nonsense" posts (if you know what I mean). Such as bad advice.

I think reasonable people use it for reasonable purposes and non reasonable people for their own reasons. IME it's a tool for the polar extremes at the expense of the others.

By the way I had a very high like ratio but that has plummeted since the dislike button. Some will see that as a good thing but I expect most of those would not be able to argue that point eloquently.

Ha! tBBC with this system would've been interesting!

Now we just need a non-committal button which makes absolutely no difference to peoples ranking :) amber should suit nicely.

One thing I have noticed is they're quite difficult to hit accurately on a mobile and I nearly hit one when just scrolling a page. Just something to think about really.

I think that if somebody disagrees with something said on the forum then they should post a response saying this and explaining why they disagree. It is not much help to the reader seeing that one or more disagree without any explanation why.

Also, I find the idea of these buttons rather distracting to my enjoyment of the forum.

Can I suggest that you take this reputation marking system off of the For Sale section, in the same way there should be not 3rd party negative comments about items for sale, just wonder whether this system could wrongly predudice sale items?

One thing I have noticed reading back over this thread is that the idea may not get treated in the same way by everyone thus at worse making it a bit meaningless at best making it confusing.

Good discussions here - nice to see a good debate on the subject. I'm not sure I like it either, but it's still fun to try because we wanted to see what it looked like.

I agree... I don't think many will use it as a substitute for a proper reply but I have just said I don't like the rep system so far. I think we'll open a poll so you can all vote at some point soon and let you choose.

I can't really see the point of the Negative button. It does not add anything to the forum and could put people off from posting. I know if I kept getting negative points for example posting about Alonso then I would soon think, sod this and stop posting. I don't think its a healthy way to keep a forum active. I think the Positive button is good move but I would just remove the Negative button.

There are a handful of quite aggressive and highly opinionated posters who form the basis of most of the controversial threads.

I see this as a good way to express displeasure with their posts without getting dragged into an argument.
