A mind, like a home, is furnished by its owner, so if one’s life is cold and bare he can blame none but himself..

OK, I have just implemented a list of your posts that were marked with the “Rude!” button:

Seems like a good idea. Does it need any special permissions, or does it filter out self-ratings? I marked one of my posts as rude and went to that link and still see nothing.

Oops, sorry, I had something temporarily messed up. Could you please try again?

Regarding a “Thanks” button, if I add it I probably won’t make the person’s score publicly visible.

This is the best solution. I like to say “thanks” for helpful posts and don’t want to lengthen the thread with my “thanks” posts. We have this “thanks” button in German “taschenlampen-forum.de” and the “thanks” are visible in the related post.

And I like the rude button althought I haven’t used it up to now.

Btw: I don’t like this smiley: Facepalm
In many cases it is used in an offending way, saying “your are a fool”. Can’t we get rid of it?

Good sb! I just read a list of my flagged posts, which I have been wondering about. One was definitely neither rude, lewd nor conflictive, and I am 100 percent positive who flagged the other three.
Better, I agree with can, and others above, this has already improved the posting behavior of some members who necessitated new measures in the first place.
Best, besides consistently making great posts, points and contributions, Dale has now recently referenced Styx AND Rush!

Dale can’t be that bad of a guy if he digs Rush.

pop a few “judgy bubbles”

Chuckle. The equivalent experiment is to pop the “search bubble” aka “filter bubble” — sign out of everything Google, flush the cache, restart the browser, and repeat that favorite search that always brings up exactly the kind of thing you like to read about fresh every day, and …. surprise! The world differs.

Google profiles what you like to click on, and shows you more and more of that, so you see more predictably targeted ads: $$PROFIT$$.

Try startpage.com. It provides google search results without google’s tracking, profiling or “filter bubble”. It even submits your searches securely so your ISP can’t see what you’re searching either (which also means it won’t be in your browser history). And startpage themselves does no tracking, recording IP addresses or anything whatsoever. privacy-policy?

It’s nice to see a “karma tool” is being implemented in this lovely forum.

Dumb question but why do some think we need a thanks button?

 

djozz quotes, "it came with chinese lettering that is chinese to me".

                      "My man mousehole needs one too"

Because there is a huge unpopulated hole besides the “no thanks” button

Edit: in all seriousness i can see the appeal, when as is often the case (from Jozz Toykeeper etc…) a member makes a great contribution to the forum in a post, other might be torn between just replying to express gratitude and pilling to a number of “thank you post” with little signal/noise or just stay silent to keep the thread clean, a thx button could help with that

Well, it could be construed as that. Silly

But, as others have said, it’s so that the thread doesn’t have to be littered up with +1’s and other congratulatory notes with little or no informational value to add to the discussion. Some people would rather say nothing than to bump a thread to say thanks for something somebody else said.

Personally, I don’t mind the ‘litter’ of thanks notes.

Maybe, sorta, but it also would really cut down on clutter and “thread bloat”. Even when its positive stuff, who wants to log in just to read dozens of new “Thanks!” posts, or worse get email alerts for new thread activity only to find something useless to themselves? I don’t. Ain’t nobody got time fo dat. So I think most of us just don’t say thanks, because it doesn’t add to the conversation. And that’s kind of a shame. So for that reason, I personally also really see the appeal of a “Thanks!” button.

I’m not too fond of a thanks button.

When HKJ posts his 187th (?) battery review I like to thank him for that and always try to (but not always succeed) add why I appreciate the review of that particular battery, and perhaps something constructive for the discussion about the battery. With a ‘thanks’ button I will be tempted to skip all that and my thanks becomes an anonymous entry for a counter.

So a ‘thanks’ button invites me to skip part of the social interaction that I appreciate so much about BLF.

But then, I may just not use it if it is there.

A given post that many different users flag as Rude! will be automatically removed.

Having a warped mind, I see this automation as being potentially problematic.

If someone has evil intent to seriously damage this forum, he could create several false accounts, then go on a Rude! marking marathon through a lot of very useful posts, reviews, discussions, etc.

Your automatic deletion could destroy a lot of the forum.

Perhaps I’m misunderstanding what “automatically removed” means, but if it results in permanent deletion, that could be a problem.

I suggest instead of automatically deleting a Rude! post, just flag it for your review at a later time.
