Babs seems to think the opposite:

Personally I don't care.



I agree with Babs. People will inevitably thumbs down on a post based on the person who wrote it, or based on the fact that someone they like disagreed with it, and they will thumbs up an unintelligent post they found funny that has zero to do with the site, or even the topic being discussed in the thread. Also, you will have disgruntled people going around thumbs-downing posts based on their particular mood. I think a facebook-like thing where you can like a post, but not dislike, would be OK, then a list of most liked posts would be interesting.

I never mentioned anything about a down or negative mark. Only a positive for plus one type mark. BuyY a post having no positive remarks that's basically a negative remark or neutral at minimum.

I was not referring to your idea, and I don't think Babs was either--although I don't know if she'd have a different opinion on your ranking system. I think your idea is fine, and it would be interesting to see a list of top posts. Avoids copyright issues by using +1 instead of 'like'. And I don't think it implies a post is bad if it has no good marks, because a lot of posts are banter or questions. It might imply it was bad if the post attempts to answer a question or otherwise offer help, and it is off the mark...and it would be good that no one gives it a rating.

you are right. I should not have said that the lack of plus one marks has to mean that the post is bad or even neutral. It's just that it was not worthy of an extra accomodation maybe.

One default: putting too much emphasis on it might create incentive to overpost.

There doesn't need to be a "Thumbs Down" for posts. Plenty of forums just have a simple "Thanks" button or "Like" button, and it works fine.

Aces,

I did see it and I really appreciate the work you did on it. I'd like to see your macro on a button somewhere I can find it, rather than digging it out of this thread, for those who care how many posts each person has.


I briefly considered writing up a Greasemonkey script that you could install, which would replace the "Top Contributors" link with a link to my website. But, I'm too lazy/not bored enough right now :P
