Perhaps a Venn diagram is in order.

As aptly proven by my latest threak, DT is officially dead. Please shut it down (IE: no new threaks). There is enough comedy in the archives that it should remain on the server however.

I know they won't come back, but I still say a zero tolerance TO policy for inappropriate thumb comments is the way to go. A few quick TO's would be enough to send the message that those comments are for quick constructive criticism or praise and nothing else. Sans the "shadow forum" as it was referred to, thumb comments clearly made the forum a better place. I think they were given up on too easily.

I can see the hissy fits now about what "inappropriate" is. If you so intimidate folks as to only make mundane comments the nature of the forum is breached.

It isn't the nature of the forum being breached. Folks can make such comments in the actual forum. But for thumbs to work, people need to understand they have to play real nice. It's a thumbs up--anything but nice defeats the purpose.

 

And while "that tie has a little to much shine for that suit" may be mundane, it's helpful. And it isn't something that needs to clog up the WAYWRN thread. It's all sadly hypothetical, of course.

 

Shugz, why don't you miss them?

I disagree. We'll then be going from the bar analogy that we've had for so long to the Stepford Wives. I say keep them gone.

Honestly, I can't think of anything that would be a bigger hassle to moderate well than thumbs-up comments. It would just be a mess.

So it goes. I guess I never really saw how bad it got.

What if thumbs were only used in the inner circle?

To be honest, I never really did, either, but I can see where it would be almost unmanageable from a moderation perspective.

The moderation team will work on this as soon as we sort out that whole "peace in the Mideast" thing.

It's somebody else's turn to make the obvious joke here.
