    I don't really like it when there is a "Like" button, but not a "Dislike" button. I don't think there should be any consequences to disliking posts.I suppose posts with excessive "dislikes" might raise alarms though. Anook has a "Dislike" option. I almost never use it, but I like having the option.

    I'm pretty sure this suggestion will get turned down, but I wanted to try anyway. :)

    And that with so few words :p

    I want it in aswell, but soly for a egocentric reason: ''it's something I can collect'' :D

    I've already done the collecting of ''likes'' and ''followers'' and ''posts'' now let's get another thing :up:

    Thanks for the feedback - I do have the option of a Upvote/Downvote system that I can restrict to certain forums (and I may even implement it in a Game Suggestion forum at some later time) but nope... no dislike button at this time.

    Thanks!

    DISLIKE! :mad:


    I do think Downvoting would be fun for game suggestions.

    Dislikes buttons do not promote discussion. If I say something people don't like I want to know why and offer rebuttal. I don't want to see X number of people dislike my post and have only a small number of people express their opinion on what I said.

    The same argument could be said for "Like" buttons. Especially since I indiscriminately "like" a lot of posts in threads I'm interested in. Really, neither option is necessary. My reason for wanting this is for balance. There can be no likes without a dislike. I knew such a suggestion would most likely be turned down, but it was fun to try. Also nice to know I wasn't the only one who wanted this.

    That is true about likes. I don't want to get rid of them because I need validation from an online forum about a video game that isn't even out yet. :p

    An acceptable rebuttal to my argument! At least you're honest about why you like "likes." ;)

    I don't really approve of a dislike button simply because there are a few individuals on the forums (We all know they're around!) that'll use this dislike tool as a sort of "Challenge Accepted" into seeing just how many dislikes they can get before the ban hammer caves in their skulls. I've seen it on previous MMO forums where they intentionally troll and show disapproval just to get that infamous dislike added xD

    So i'm ok at keeping those trolls quiet! A benefit of one, however, would be to know who the ill-will'd are. But hard to see that when some kids wanna get disliked just to get attention lol So even though I say i dislike it, i'm not against it. Call me indifferent!

    I suppose you have a point, but there are also people who make it contest to see if they can get the most "likes". I think at one point, someone created a second account to "like" everything their other account posted. It was something talked about in a few status posts a while ago.

    I didn't want there to be a penalty to "dislikes," just wanted something to balance all the "likes." But yes, I understand how it can be used as a tool of evil. I have now decided to indiscriminately "like" every reply to this thread to abuse the system. BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

    As fun as it is to fake argue, I think I'm gonna stop now. I don't want this to be pages upon pages of us arguing (even though that would be awesome!). I don't think it would be constructive for a thread in the Suggestions & Feedback forum. So I shall back out unless more constructive replies occur, and then maybe we can spend a few posts being goofy. :D

    If dislikes have no consequences, I don't see it as being any more harmful than indiscriminate liking. But I do understand some users will make it a contest to see who can get the most dislikes before getting banned for posting offensive content.
