    I noticed this was a xenforo forum and I saw this neat add-on

    You can react different ways to posts

    you guys would know if it would be worth the investment or would create enough engagement to turn an ROI

    Given the choice, I would rather only have "like" and "dislike" buttons, nothing more, nothing less. I feel that giving people a "like" is a good enough indication that their posts are valuable, and the "dislike" button... well you know what it's for...

    I'd not want to have this personally. Maybe dislike button at most, but preferably not add this add-on/plugin at all.

    Looked into it, think it adds too much clutter.

    I would just like two buttons:
    1. "Like"
    2. "You're a moron"

    I agree with maybe the dislike button, and maybe have it take $rep away. It would discourage dumb posts.

    I also vote for a dislike button. There are posts that I think are bad but don't want to bother wasting my time criticizing them or dismantle the thread topic with my comments. A simple dislike would be nice.

    It shouldn't take away rep because people will spam it and bad comments are still valuable to the forum to learn from.

    You can always click the 'Ignore' button on a user who tends to post BS regularly. It works!

    I have never done this because what if someone posts something valuable one day? Or someone replies to them with something valuable? I figure if I want to ignore them I can just click off the thread. If I could dislike them and then click off the thread that would be even better lol.

    Not a fan of the Dislike button.

    It encourages group think and indirectly forces the forum posts to go in the direction of the majority who share the same views.

    I personally feel that controversial posts and unpopular opinions make me learn more and challenges the normal train of thought.

    What happens in the marketplace?

    We put an offering out there.

    Some people take a small action to show they like it.

    Some people like it so much they respond with feedback.

    Some people dislike it so much they respond with feedback.

    The vast majority of people won’t leave a reaction, even if they dislike our offering.

    Our new offering can sink without a trace, leaving us scratching our heads wondering why.

    I’d rather the forum mirrors the marketplace and we get no feedback when people dislike what we put out.

    I’d rather focus on getting positive reactions and finding the few “hyper-responsives”, rather than be distracted by a few drive-by dislikes that you wouldn’t get in the marketplace.

    It's easy enough to just scroll past their post if it looks poor value. Sometimes we might discount others opinions just because they think differently to us. Sometimes however their comments can readjust our thinking and moral compass. I'd rather see their posts so I don't miss the occasional stroke of genius.

    Very well put and certainly a sound reason not to have a dislike button.

    I'm sure MJ had already considered the pro's and con's.

    I still don't understand why we don't have the ability to vote people off the island every once in a while.

    I think it's the captains task to deal with any mutineers don't you?

    And I think MJ does a very good job of it too.

    Reactions are a part of the new Xenforo but I probably will not use them.

    Years ago (2010 maybe?) we tried a dislike button.

    It caused a lot of tension and disharmony.

    Click report if anyone is shit-stirring.

    I kick people out almost weekly.

    When people are here solely to argue their worldview (ya'll are brainwashed, ya'll should get a job and make $75K a year like me!) they get tossed.

    We're here to build a business that changes our lives and sets us free, without having to depend on the stock market.

    You don't go to a Mosque and start screaming Jesus.

    It's not that we don't encourage debate or don't want a dialogue, some people aren't here for the forum's true purpose, they're here to validate their worldview and their life choices. Sorry, that's not why this place exists. We're here to learn how to win our freedom, not to learn how to submit to the Monday thru Friday slave system.

    Fair enough.

    In my mind though, I equate this to subscribing to every mediocre blog out there, in the rare chance they might post some gold one day. It's possible, but it probably won't happen.

    Each to their own. That's the advantage of the ignore button as you pointed out. If you don't what to see it you don't have to.
