In the interest of fairness, I'd like to see a thumbs down button added to the platform.  It doesn't make much sense to have one and not the other.

Although you may find both an Up and Down thumbs button on other web sites, social media site and the like, I seriously doubt the need for one here. All that shows in Negativity towards someone and whatever they posted. In that case, if really a negative post, report that post and the username as abuse. Otherwise give it no mention, no thought, and No Thumbs up and then move along.

Instead of thumbs down, you should just post a civil reply explaining your disagreement.

I can see the thumbs down thing being an issue in many ways.

Let's be clear, I am not influenced by social media.  I couldn't care less about it.

 

  • Was this helpful YES or NO? 
  • Was this answer + or -?  
  • Star rating systems.

You see these all the time in technical forums.  They are not negative. 

 

A bad reply gets posted but nobody pays attention to it.  Then along comes the LIKES brigade to show support for their pal.  So now we've got a bad reply with lots of un-deserved LIKES and no way to dismiss them.  That's not right.  We need a way to balance  LIKES with equal and opposite ANTI-LIKES.  That's all I'm saying.

But you said Thumbs Down. Not a Rating system. Actually it is nearly impossible to get an OP to mark a reply as the correct answer, whether it is or not. The Thumbs up is there to give recognition to replies that people like, not just the OP.

 

Please give links to these Bad replies that have lots of un-deseved LIKES.

 

Likes mean Nothing. There is no reward for the Most Likes. There is no reward from the forum or Adobe for Likes. And there was no reward for the point system of the old JIVE forum.

 

I'm not sure I understand your frustration with the Likes (Thumbs Up) system. There was Likes, actually a Helpful button, on the old forum also and that gave the person that got the helpful nod one point, IIRC. But no matter how many point you got you got nothing for them. No monetary reward.

"Please give links to these Bad replies that have lots of un-deseved LIKES."

It's bad enough when a few people abuse the LIKE button but now bots are exploiting it too.  Do we really need this LIKE/KUDOS thing and if so why?

If a reply is wrong, and you think it's wrong, you should post a reply saying why, not just vote it down.

I've, unfortunately, posted several incorrect replies in my time on the forums and have usually been politely corrected. It's embarrassing but preferred, in my opinion, to a thumbs down.

I said a bad reply, Bob.  Not necessarily a wrong answer.  There's a world of difference.

 

Let's just say the remark could be hyper critical of Adobe or the product or just plain inane.  But it doesn't violate any forum guidelines.   What we're discussing here is the LIKE brigade and how to mitigate that once it starts.   There's a lot of abuse potential when you have a LIKE button with no way to balance it.   And before you suggest locking the thread, let me remind you that the LIKE button works on all discussions, locked and unlocked.
