See the topic here:
Everyone would appeal and hit disagree every time so argue towards no dislike at all.It would be nice to have a "Disagree" button so that you don't have to "Dislike" someone if you don't agree with them. (if this has already been suggested then I would reemphasize the need for having such an option).
Also is there any way that a Dislike can be appealed. (and where do you go to see how many dislikes have been given and by whom.)
Also have a way to appeal any given Dislikes so that moderators can determine whether it was given justly or out of hate or bullying.
That would be a full time job for someone and if you really think about it one cannot really stop someone from disliking something you say or do in real life so a moderator intervention is probably not justified.
I am with you though as far as disagree goes, I disagree far more often than I dislike, for this reason I rarely use the dislike feature.
I think moderation of the dislike feature should only be necessary if a user accumulates a pre-determined number of dislikes. At that point, moderators should investigate to see whether or not action should be taken against the "disliked" member.You might be right, but if using Dislike is only used for the very extreme situations (by also having a Disagree button) then there wouldn't be that much extra load on the Moderators to process any appeals for when it might have been given unjustly because of hate or bullying by someone. IMO

Actually you should use the Disagree button if you think someone is spewing nonsense in Your Opinion and only use the Dislike button on the rare occasions that someone is making comments or posts that are not appropriate for a public and professional forum such as NamePros. IMO
We are getting into subjective perception here...what is disagreeable to you may be the ramblings of a lunatic to me and vice versa. (I would post an example here of a recent one, but no need to stir the nest!)
We plan to add this option.It would be nice to have a "Disagree" button
We have not decided yet whether we will keep the "Dislike" option or eventually remove it. Currently, we have made dislikes less noticeable and they do not have any impact on an account except that they are shown as a negative number on specific posts that have been disliked. Dislikes do help us internally, but Reports can serve this purpose instead.(Dislike should pretty much do the same job as the Report button with the difference that it should show how many times someone's comment or post have been reported and by whom.)
That would be difficult for us to do. The only practical way is for members to let us know when the dislikes feature is being abused so that we can investigate and take the appropriate actions.Also have a way to appeal any given Dislikes so that moderators can determine whether it was given justly or out of hate or bullying
Update: Good news!
We've added the much-requested Disagree option along with an Agree option.
Posts can now be Liked, Thanked, or Disliked in addition to Agreed or Disagreed.
- Like/Thank is +1
- Dislike is -1
- Agree is +1
- Disagree is 0 (neutral)
- If a post is liked and disagreed, then it will have 1 point.
- If a post is thanked and agreed, then it will have 2 points.
- If a post is disliked but agreed, then it will have 0 points.
That's all for now.
A lot more to come.
They'll all be moved to a single icon soon, but there will likely be even more options under that single icon (7 options).To many buttons

You don't have to use them all, but they're available if you want to express yourself in a way that you couldn't otherwise.
More coming soon.
