Thumbs up button

Postby mud » Tue Jun 22, 2010 6:54 am

So far seems all good :)

Would it be possible to put a thumbs up (or recommend) button so that people can find popular posts?

Maybe a ‘random post’ too could be interesting

Greetings,

If the quality of the Dhamma was determined by popular vote, then this may have some practical use.

However, since realistically it's not, this functionality is only likely to create tension and turn the art of posting into a popularity contest.

That said, I don't know how we could do it even if we wanted to... I'm not sure the platform supports it.

Metta,
Retro. :)

I'm sorry if my words are not understandable and it is in impolite expression, because my native language is not English....

No thanks, it is our policy right now to not have thank you buttons, thumbs-up buttons, etc.

For some (not all) it might end up being a competition and another chance to feed the ego.

Thanks for the suggestion, but for now we will not be adopting that one.

One could still post the smilie: :goodpost: once in a while when there is a post that one is especially fond of or of course thanking someone for some good info.

Greetings,

And there definitely won't be a "karma" function to enable members to smite each other!

If you wish to show somebody gratitude, you can always just post your thanks, or even privately message them. :thanks:

Aesthetics, usability, service quality, pleasurable interaction, content and website identity are assessed on the judgment of Buddhist website quality.
All thoughts begin in the mind, mind is supreme and mind-made are they. If one speaks or acts with impure mind pain follows him like the wheel the hoof of the ox.

Id like to see a reputation stat for members something like stackexchange.com, similar or better.
I also think below avatar it should say what tradition person follows if any, thats important piece of information for people to navigate.
