  • First!

    Well, for the agree/disagree button, on a more serious post...

    We have insightful, awesome and LOL as all positive posts. Some here think LOL is bad (but now we have the WTF button), but it means you made someone laugh or/and the post was funny. So we have 3 positives and 1 negative. 

    Insightful is a good one, as it means the post was knowledgeable or/and someone learned something from it.

    Awesome is as it says, a freakin awesome post man

    LOL means the post was funny

    WTF is the negative one, and it means the post is bad and you probably triggered someone and could be seen as the "disagree" button, it kinda serves the same purpose.

    We don't really have a way to "agree" with a post with just a button. None of the above 3 positive ones really match up.

    However, a disagree button would be hilarious. Drive-by disagree like I posted the other day. Oh boy would that annoy people. But in terms of forum usage, I think that be abused by trolls (I would! At least I'm honest lol) and make more people annoyed and not use the forum. It would be hilarious to see all the people triggered by it, because someone is bound to start ranting and raging cause someone did a drive-by disagree. But I dunno how helpful that is to the actual forum in the long run. 
    Disagree will never be a thing.  I'm not a huge fan of WTF, either, but we can trial it out and see how it goes if you guys really want to keep it.
