    I'd like the board to have both thumbs up and thumbs down, but I wouldn't want to see it have any effect beyond simply displaying that voting data to users (in the same way you can see the thumbs up now). Posters can then see who has up- or down-voted the post, and make a judgement for themselves on the meaning/value of the votes.

    The one exception would be that if the ratio is something like 30:1 negative (ie big enough to overwhelm the ability of any one subgroup to fully influence the vote), then hide the post unless you click to display it.

    Yea I think the thumbs up/down for users here would be fraught with peril. I could see it being useful on a math board, but on a style board, it's just a recipe for disaster.

    God awful. Serious question: who styles these pictures usually and how do they get their jobs? I'm assuming it's always women?

    I like the Facebook comments; it could almost be a selection of SF replies.

    I think Brooks will struggle to simultaneously attract old codgers and young hipsters. RL manages it through a careful mix of different lines and different price points between the lines (as well as different retail locations/formats). I'm not convinced Brooks can adopt that model successfully but I suppose we shall see...

    HIYO! excellent thread. ill do my best/worst, to keep it up and running.


    iirc, that would be his wife.


    while i agree with you that vigorous debate beats endless one post answer topics, and parades of "ZOMG you are teh best sprezzer evar!!!!" i do understand how some people can feel scared the way certain people state their opinions a fact. you have the knowledge and backbone to argue your point with conviction, and confidence, and the knowledge to back it up, others do not.

    now, there is no question i feel the forum is way better off with the type of threads we have now, and the resurgence of a good deal of quality posters, even if there is a measure of preachiness, but i understand why people who are maybe less initiated to SF would be a little afraid, or confused.



    i started a thread like that long ago. :embar:


    WAHT!???!??!
