    I would agree but that button should not award any points otherwise you know who might become Legendary soon.

    Oh sure, MMORPG.COM is going to give you a flame button.
    I did not ask for a flame button..

    #LOLBUTTONMATTERS
    So why didn't you ask for the relatively neutral 'disagree'  rather than the full on 'facepalm'? and why the hash tag??
    I think i answered this :

    So you would suggest to change a tool which people like you uses to harass anyone that disagrees with you that was not meant to be used for that for a better tool so you can harass people who disagree with you better.

    Hmmm... Nice concept. No surprises who would support this idea.
    Did you even read my post? My post was to ensure people don't abuse "lol" button and instead be given another one to impactfully show that they had a "facepalm" reading someone's post. I know for sure that i would have thousands of "facepalm" and i am prepared for it, it is called being grown up.

    #LOLBUTTONMATTERS

    And #LOLBUTTONMATTERS
    Nope you didn't answer it then and haven't now. Nor have you answered why the hashtag?

    I also think this whole 'abuse of the lol button' is a real furphy with no evidence backing it up at all.
    Hashtagging is what all the cool kids (read:hipsters/social media douchebags) are doing now.

    Hell I have one too

    250 dislikes would give you the "Forum Troll" title, your color would be Red.

    500 dislikes would give you the "Despised" title, your color would be Crimson.

    There is no such thing as "positive reinforcement button". I thought I was fairly explicit on that one...

    You reinforce certain attitude, than can be either "positive" or "negative", via same button.

    It swings both ways, depending on your bias.

    You are just pretending you represent some universal point of view - "we all know who is right and who is wrong", you don't.

    I am sorry my answer is not something you are looking for thus if it were an option you could have clicked facepalm to show your disappointment. Hope now you understand.

    And again : #LOLBUTTONMATTERS

    I was considering this myself...well, not a "facepalm" button, but a "disagree" button (which would mean "respectfully disagree") :). I do not think it is right that people are often using "LOL" button to express disagreement in a rather rude manner.

    LOL should be used when laughing with someone not at someone, in my opinion.
    I agree with Disagree over Facepalm.

    But when you give us 3 options that are basically the same without an option that is in the opposite you have forced us to make do with what you have been given. Don't tell us "hey you can give opinions on posts now, but only if they are positive". This is the Internet, not day care.
    Honestly people in day care should not be pampering kids with only "positive view", they need to criticize kids and show them their faults to make them better human beings.

    Boobs are LIFE, Boobs are LOVE, Boobs are JUSTICE, Boobs are mankind's HOPES and DREAMS. People who complain about boobs have lost their humanity.

    Disagreeing in this time?!?!? How preposterous!
    We wouldn't want to resort back to the world before the 2000's that was horrible and most people had thicker skin! *shudders*

    It swing both ways:

    If you agree with a troll post, you do not find it trolling in the first place.
    Just as because you don't find it trolling does not mean it isn't.(hattrick negative!)

    etc.

    You are just pretending you represent some universal point of view, you don't.
    This has been an enlightening conversation in respects to what/how you post here. Honestly.

    With that I am done.

    You can always post "I disagree."
  • bartoni33bartoni33 Member RarePosts: 1,999
    You can always post "I disagree."
    Meh. Then you have to/are asked to give a reason why.

    A button would be so much more convenient! No one asks why you clicked a certain button.

    heh, what a weak stance to take.
  • hfztthfztt Member RarePosts: 1,339
    Yeah, I have to vote NO on that one. All current options are positive feedback on the post one way or another. Negative buttons are just going to be abused to hell.

    For some strange reason people are much more likely to overuse/abuse negative feedback buttons that positive feedback buttons.

    My experience on internet tells me that people will use a positive feedback option to enforce negative feedback that they agree with or trolling if you wanna call it. in this very forums i have seen this happening, people constantly agreeing or clicking awesome to a nonsensical post filled with fallacy simply because they agree with the rant and anyone else who disagree they just give "lol".  What i want here is to stop that abuse of "lol" button because i have said it already : getting "lol" for my lame jokes is important to me!!

    Look, I appreciate the humor in your post OP, and sometimes I would like to click a facepalmwtfbbq! button too. The problem is that when you add any type of negative button to forums, then it discourages discussion.

    When two people agree on something, then they can simply show their level of agreement by clicking agree. If something is new information or a peek into the inner workings of a game that they didn't know about before, then there's the insightful button.

    But the second you add a disagree or facepalm button, then you begin the downward reddit cycle of people posting a controversial subject and then getting downvoted into oblivion with no real discussion taking place.

    Eventually people who are "facepalmed" enough will just leave.  Bad for ad revenue, bad for discussion and before long we become a community full of reach around gamers agreeing with everything that each other says.

    Again, what you or anybody else sees as "a nonsensical post filled with fallacy" is not set in stone. I see that shit all the time in certain sub-forums here but I understand that those that agree with "a nonsensical post filled with fallacy" are stating their opinion on it. It may very well be bullshit in reality but to them it isn't. Opinions can be wrong. But as a forum they have to be accepted. Calling the use of positive buttons on what you consider "a nonsensical post filled with fallacy" is not abusing said buttons.

    Me and others using LOL as a negative IS abusing said button. THAT is where your argument should be focusing. I am not a thin-skinned SJW pansy. I could handle a "dislike" button. I would be forced to. It would happen daily. But I would proudly wear my Disses as a medal of honor, as would many here, including some posting in this very thread. I say bring it on Mods!

    Yep and this is why we will never see any negative buttons.

    That is not a good thing. Everybody likes a good circle-jerk. It currently happens here all the time. But as I stated earlier if you give us 4 positive options and no negative ones, we will make do with what we have to "create" one. If their was not a "LOL" button I for one would use "insightful" in a sarcastic way just like "LOL" is used. If I am given options to vote on how I feel about a post I am not gonna restrict myself to feel good options because I don't "feel good" about all posts.

    As far as the Reddit fear I honestly think this site would not drop to that level. The Mods would take care of the obvious trolls like they have been doing lately.

  • PpiperPpiper Member UncommonPosts: 995
    Yes a "facepalm" button to click when we don't agree with someone's view. "lol" should not be used for that purpose, well at least not to me, i only click "lol" on comments that are hilarious and i feel like that is how it should be. if you guys have noticed, most of the time i post with an attempt to comedy, i go for the character of that one guy in the group who is always making some lame jokes but others laugh anyway just to be nice!! So yes it is very important to me when someone clicks "lol" on my lame jokes!! So please add a "facepalm" button for disagreement.

    #LOLBUTTONMATTERS
    can we start with your post?

    I agree, saying that they are abusing agree button was out of line and I am glad you understand my point, i am pretty bad with words and such and most often as you can see post shitty joke and comments, so thanks for understanding :).
