    Hello TSO!

    We've recently (again) been installing new tools on the server, and I thought I would share a little bit about our newest addition. It's a new system to "Rate" posts. Instead of the old "Like" button, there are now a handful of buttons used to express how you feel about a post.

    There are now:
    • Like - same as before, but now you get a +1 reputation point.
    • Dislike - gives you a -1 reputation point.
    • Agree - gives you a +1 reputation point.
    • Disagree - gives you neither positive or negative rating.
    • Funny - gives you a +1 reputation point.
    • Informative - gives you a +1 reputation point.
    If you have additional "rating" ideas, please post them below.

    Something else you'll notice is that you have a new graphic in your user information in posts. There is a bar that shows the split of your reputation. Everyone should be all green, since we've never had "down votes".

    You'll also see this information sprinkled around the site, such as:

    Note, only admin can see what you vote. That is intentional to prevent people from retaliating against negative votes. Also, I personally will be monitoring voting, if you keep down voting someone just because you are an asshole and don't like them, you will answer to me.

    The intent of this is to start allowing you guys to have some feedback on the time of post you want and enjoy. We plan to give people the ability to say, "I like your content" soon in the future. We also have the ability to auto-hide posts if they get more than X negative posts, which may be something we do to help increase the signal to noise ratio.

    Thanks for reading, and if you have any additional suggestions, please leave them below.

    Shaun

    We are definitely going to add a rating for content. Anyone have any ideas for the icon? Maybe a pen, newspaper, book or something like that?

    We are always taking steps. A lot of them are boring things in the background to keep this tractor running.

    Rainbow has to be used for any post that Dan puts something in regards to someone or something being "homo."
