Re: How about an 'Un-Like' button...

As I recall we used to have a "negative" rep. I think there were too many little wars started so the mods took a poll and the majority felt that SN would be a nicer, friendlier place without it. This was several years ago, so if someone remembers the details better please correct me.

Or one could simply step up and get involved in the topic and express one's opinion, rather than clucking anonymously from the sidelines.
That's what forums are for.

Re: How about an 'Un-Like' button...

yes, 'disagree' would maybe be a gentler slap :-).

I only suggest the 'un-like' to give opposing symetry to the 'like' button.

I guess it's a slippery slope, 'like', 'un-like', 'disagree', 'ok-with', 'sort-of-agree'...

to many button choices... or maybe a radio button with 1-5 (disagree strongly, disagree, don't care, agree, agree strongly). you see that on alot of survey forms.

Unlike is rather strong. I often disagree with posts but with very few exceptions do not feel "Dislike" (or "Unlike") for the poster. Perhaps a "Disagree" or "Objection" button might work (although some of the more cantankerous might find a high "Disliked" count a Badge of Merit, eh?).

The only thing we DON'T want done in moderation.

Re: How about an 'Un-Like' button...

aa3jy, in answer to your reported post email (obviously testing my earlier response), the moderators cannot be everywhere at once. We all have day jobs and other obligations and don't sit logged into the site 24/7. Unless a post is reported, we may or may not be aware of a problem with any specific thread. I think saying that it is "poor moderation" is a little unfair. I may be wrong, because I was doing some coastal cruising for the last week and had limited access to email, but in reviewing my email once I returned, yours was the first "reported post" for the thread that you reported, thus, it may not have been on any moderator's radar.

Rep Power is no longer used. It was replaced by the "Like" button but never removed. Mine advances once for every year I've been a member. Or something like that. Anyway, it can be ignored.

Re: How about an 'Un-Like' button...

A silly question for DR and apologies for aa3jy for hijacking your post, but what does 'Rep Power' mean in the heading of everyone's profile? I searched to see if it is defined somewhere, but of course, every single SN post comes up instead...
