Can we get a like button here?

Any problems with the site? How can we improve KVR?

While upvoting seems to be a ok implementation (not sure if needed, but it doesn't hurt), I don't see much good in the downvoting, as it could be abused by trolls.
It serves a purpose. I'm downvoting every numpty who asks what we think of a plugin or which one they should buy.
In case you’re short of numpty material to vote down...

Done :tu:

It's not the question that annoys me, it's just the absence of any initiative whatsoever.

I think people also forget that a $5 plugin never used is actually expensive while a $200 plugin used every day is cheap.

I am honest: I did not read the 20 pages inbetween, but I still want to give my feedback here: I think that an upvote is a nice idea, while I think that a downvote button just might spread negativity. In my opinion only an upvote button would be enough.

It works in the forums I frequent which only have a Like/Thanks button.
Plugins and a DAW. On a operating system. Which runs on a computer.

Thanks for a good wank I guess.

Agree, they tried up and down votes on GS for a while and it just bred negativity, so they dropped the down voting. Far better to just focus on the positive, I think. I say that as someone seems to be automatically down voting everything I post recently, and I am not sure why, it's pretty depressing, TBH. :(

How ironic that people already downvoted your post. I upvoted it, though.

In the end, just try to stay positive and ignore the negative votes. :)

I think pointing out that you get your posts downvoted is likely to attract trolling down votes. Most of the time where I have seen someone say something about downvoting their post attracts more down votes

I found it refreshing to come to a forum where "likes" etc are hardly ever used. In reality, I don't care if people like what I say or not but I find myself looking out for those likes when I post on other forums. I wonder why we feel the need to please other people. It might even promote boot-licking behaviour, who knows?

I have a suggestion - how about a third, middle finger up-vote button?

I think we also need a neutral button. I mean... if people are insecure whether or not they should buy a plugin, why would it be different when they read a post?

It should be called the "I'm not sure whether I like or dislike this post, but I love to vote anyway" button.
