What's the reputation system, you're probably wondering...

 

In the bottom RH corner of each post, there has been a click for a green up arrow and a red down arrow, so members could indicate their like or dislike for a particular post. That is what IP.Board calls the reputation system.

 

This system has several options and long-time members will recall that Slotblog formerly used the "Like only" setting.

 

In recent months, a few members have indicated a down arrow for posts by mistake and there isn't any procedure for correcting these errors in my admin controls. Since the red down arrow was rarely used, I'm reverting to the former setting where posts can be only "Liked".

 

As an aside, posters are not allowed to "Like" their own posts, so the option does not appear in posts that you yourself have made.

Never noticed the "Unlike" button. Good option. After you sober up you can change your mind. :drinks:

I "like" all my posts. :sun_bespectacled:... well, most of 'em.  :pardon:

Oh puleeze... if you disagree with a post in a thread, you can always make your position clear with a follow-on post.

I explained why the change to the system was being made.

So because "a few" had clicked in error, the majority have to suffer due to their ignorance? :(

That and the fact that the down arrow wasn't being clicked very often.

"Suffer"? I doubt there is anyone suffering due to this board settings change...

Bob, your nonconformist Slotblog past is water under the bridge, thanks to "cheater" Wells, best chat moderator on the planet. Sail forth and don't look back, Bob. I always enjoyed your posts, even when they didn't conform to standards. :laugh2:
 
Zip, your post #8 is an absolute classic, I'm saving it.  :)

Dave Reed, this is for you...   :redface:

 

Now... since you can't 'don't like' my posts any more you will have to troll around now and look for others to make negative comments so you can 'Like' them.
