ok so i posted this just because a like system on a forum could be ''fun''
god did i know this kinda simple light hearted thread would create this kinda talk, damn gurl
sorry for asking i guess?
(of course you guys are entitled to your own opinion but yeah, i did not see this coming basically)
i did not read all replies really but to reply a little bit
the fact people care about getting likes on forums and else where and that they get depressed if they don't get ''enough'' or get ''disliked'' instead and so it turns into an abusive system is not my fault
nobody's fault that some people just take things way too far and care about stupid things like getting likes
you shouldn't care about whether you get 1 like on your forum post or 0
and if you do care , you need to rethink some stuff, just saying
a freaking like system i assume was originally created to be a positive thing and the fact people turned it into a fkin war system is just sad
doesn't mean a forum would be bad having a like system
(on my own forum i only allow like feature, no dislike feature for reasons mentioned above)
getting likes on post is just a way to show you appreciate something, what the heck is wrong with that?
so you can post to show appreciation as well... yeah ok but what's the big deal if you just want to show appreciation by clicking a like button
again, i know you are entitled to your own opinion but i think some people are taking this like system suggestion way too serious, for crying out loud, this is a forum and one filled with decent nice people as far as i can tell so far, this is not youtube or a social media platform, please
@Orchi'dea thank you for feeling me
@Fuzzbucket who would know? the person who created the post lol, a like system should auto come with a notification system attached, so people get notified when their post was liked
which could lead to a smile on someones face + on a lot of other forums posting the word ''like'' only is considered spamming and that is not allowed on most forums, presumably this forum included.
you coming up with all kinds of reasons why this shouldn't happen and some of them are actually kinda weird to me to put it nicely
''The idea of a long string of tab's avatars on a single post showing WHO liked it is truly awful - it would make the page cluttered and would impede reading.''
do you even know what a like system looks like on a ipb forum? (which is the software this forum uses) if you don't then.................
https://invisioncommunity.com/forums/topic/443720-my-new-nice-landing-page/ the support forum of the software that is used here
there you go, that's how a like system looks like on ipb, nothing like you ''imagined''
not cluttering anything AT ALL
from my impression so far you don't seem to know a lot about how a like system works on a forum let alone on a ipb forum like this one yet you already came fired up
with all sorts of reasons and theorys why its ''oh so horrible''
yet i could make a list of plenty of good things about a like button but i didn't do that when i created this thread as what's the point? it should be obvious, just saying
see again, i really don't see the problem adding an innocent like system on a forum
as long as you do not feature the dislike button, people can't get easily ''hurt'' by getting dislikes as that is supposedly a thing
FYI i honestly do not give a crap whether it gets added on here or not in the end
I JUST GOT HERE so i'm not invested in this place
this was just a freaking simple suggestion lol , one that i thought could be a nice addition but clearly people got problems with it
so whatever, fine by me , suit yourself
gonna be fun when im gonna post another suggestion for this place, if ever lol <3
