Support Forum Negative Vote Capabilities

Post by runawayhorses on June 3rd 2012, 6:26 pm

I would like to see this support forum implement the full feature on the "like" system. In particular activate the negative vote capability. I've seen many times where I would use this feature and I think many other people would too. It would be nice for the feature to be in its full working capacity as it is designed to be if wanted.

I need not elaborate on the usefulness this feature can bring.

Take a vote and leave a reply if you like.

Voted Yes.

Here's my reason: People should be able to see which answers are helpful. It would be better if we had a system at the bottom of a post which said: Do you find this answer useful? And if not.. they can say no, and it will say:

"2 out of 4 users find this answer helpful."

I can safely say that this won't be added unfortunately. Not that I personally oppose to it, but last time we had the negative voting option it was severely abused. Some poor member had about -60 reputation if I remember correctly! Confused

So I will be voting no on this one.

It's a no from me, sorry.

Unfortunately this is one way for players to abuse one another by negatively voting on someone repeatedly. Also this means more work for staff because, at one point, there is bound to be at least one player sending reports to mods against another player because he received a negative vote from this player. I see this happen in many forums.

Perhaps Forumotion can implement what Drogba has said but I'm not attracted to being able to have a negative vote which will impact your 'Plus 1 Total' because, as I said, some immature players will probably start hitting the - button as if there was no tomorrow, just because they have a grudge against someone.

I also agree to Base, this might be abuse if their problems weren't be able to solved. I'll be voting no also for this...

This suggestion is being refused for the only reason that members abuse this feature, hence thread Locked.
