"Thank" Rating

Discussion in 'General Suggestions' started by The Infamous Doc Holiday, Jun 19, 2018.

  1. Hey, after the experience a few "hot topic", "controversial" threads lately turned out to be, an idea for a rating popped into my head.

    There have been many times where someone posted something that I don't necessarily agree with 100% or in other instances I may not particularly like, but I recognize has a lot of value anyway which I want to let the author know, and I can't always find a good rating for. So, I'm thinking a "Thank" rating might be a good addition to the forums.

  8. Yeah all of those work, but they imply more emotional involvement than a simple Thank. @Teroxa Useful does come closest tbh I guess.

    I guess I envision something kind of neutral, more of a simple acknowledgement of what was said/the effort, I guess :p

  9. Also, don't think I didn't notice what ya'll did here, ya just trolled in to amass positive ratings for yourselves; there is a reason none of you said "Isn't that what Dumb is for?" LMAO

    does the like rating not imply "thank" in a way too?

    It could be argued most positive ratings do. But the point OP makes is for a rating where you could thank someone without implying any sort of agreement with the content of their post. Such like a "thank" rating could let you "thank" someone for good content, even if you disagree with the content.

    Like when you say "thank you" to an enemy.

    This is what the dumb rating is for

  14. Yeah, but it has the "Like" part of it too lol. I was envisioning something to acknowledge what is said/effort in something I don't particularly like or agree with.

    Yes, it is, it means you're cheap. And I honestly don't know what to say to you. You keep bitching at me and I have yet to see you contribute any useful content. Have a nice life, amigo, I guess will have to do (y)
