    Where would this button be, on their profile page?

    My issue with your thread title, not your thread, not you, but your title, is that it insinuates a dislike button means disliking you -- the person posting, rather than disliking the post itself.

    I have zero problems with dislike button-it’s easily understood as disliking the POST but would not be upset if it was changed to disagree to appease the sensitive.

  6. I would suggest that you change it to "You and your idiotic post make me physically ill". Lets go all in. We're all about being real, aren't we? So why be pansies. :xf.grin:

    So I see namepros has removed downvote and reinstated dislike. I actually prefer dislike over downvote. Downvote just seemed a bit too generic and lost to me.

    Seems like the clear winner of the poll so far is to keep the dislike terminology, and namepros has responded by changing it back.

    Lets hope everyone is mature enough to handle it and not take it as a personal insult.

    TO ALL NEW MEMBERS - and the odd old one

    When you get a dislike it means the member dislikes your statement or post, it does not mean the member dislikes you. Use it as an opportunity to open dialogue and remember that trying to force your opinion is not what it is about. Accept that another member may not agree with your opinion and move on.

    "Disagree" should be used. That's my vote

    Almost forgot spite dislike

    What is that?

    That is when you dislike someone's post and then they follow you around for a week disliking every one of your posts because they feel slighted.

    Really??
    If you do that please consider going outside and getting some fresh air.

  10. Lol, I agree. Instead of spending that much effort, and looking kind of immature, if there is truly someone you do not want to see on the forum, just block them.

    I vote we just give everyone a poo emoji if we don't like their post.

    Oh, you made a sale, but can't disclose any details? :poop:

    Would prefer a variety of options that would really represent what I feel. More choices, the better.

    The easiest way to implement that would be with a new set of emoticons reserved for showing how you feel about the post.

    Right now we have the blue namepros ones and the yellow ones. Remove on of those and add thumb up down, poo, etc and set it to one emoticon limit per post.

    That is against the rules. If you notice it, please report it. We will take action and remove their ability to dislike if need be.

    Thanks.

    Dislike and Disagree are two totally different things depending on what context they are used. If I said I liked blue cars you can't Disagree with me because that's MY true opinion but you can Dislike that I don't like blue cars.

    When someone presses the Dislike button they do it and most of the time are done. If you change it to Disagree it will make more members want to say why they Disagree with what you are saying.

    The Dislike button is sort of like slamming your fist. It releases a bit of frustration about something. The Disagree button will not have that same feeling. Switching it to Disagree will only increase the bullying attacks since most will add their opinion more freely which will lead to more heated discussions.

    I think it is ridiculous that people can't handle a little confrontation. Having the conversation is fine but wanting to change it without really giving yourself time to think it through is ridiculous. Watch this subject for a month. Analyze the data. Don't just switch it right away. This is not how you implement correct change.

    Just for the record I am not wanting to keel the Dislike button because it's something that I use. I never use it. Very rare. I want to keep it because it's the right thing to do.

    Still thinking about this and I have come to the conclusion that like and dislike are ok but the same way as we have a thank we should have a disagree. So adding a fourth option for something milder than dislike makes sense.

    That is just my opinion, but if we cannot change it, how about adding it.

    Change is leading in the polls but namepros has said officially they cannot change it because old dislikes wont make sense.

    So the obvious is to add a milder term like disagree to the thank function we already have.
     
  20. Even fb / twitter and All big social use like only,, so If you like my Post you click like button If you dont like you dont need to do anything and move on,, i beleive this is the true way

    Over time, we've found that it's significantly more efficient to develop our own XenForo add-ons from scratch. With a few exceptions, most of the public add-on developers have no idea what they're doing, and we end up practically rewriting everything, especially if we find security issues.

    Then just upvote and downvote and keep it anonymous, so people can like what they like or dislike it without the reciprocal dislikes or likes.

    Dislike:
    I think most people use this as "I strongly don't like this" - spam, bad language, really bad advice, unsavoury, unfair/harassing post, etc.
    This already exists currently and has specific functionality (as some kind of counter to "like"). It's entirely different to "disagree".
    IMO Leave as is - "like" "dislike" as opposing pairs.

    Disagree:
    This is simply "I don't agree with this"
    Opinions are subjective so this should not really be part of a count towards "like" or "dislike" as it's a different thing.
    Maybe just a very simple DB table that stores each user who dislikes a post. Then on the post it just shows, eg, "Disagree: user1, user2" (same way with the likes, dislikes, thanks).

    There are often times I want to disagree with someone but don't use "dislike" because my contrary opinion is not enough to warrant countering their "likes".

    Dislike counts are only used internally. Dislikes won’t subtract from their public likes counter. ;)

    But negative Trade Reviews will subtract from their TradeReviews score.
