Liking content
#21
With several sites introducing reactions (Facebook, GitHub), does anyone have thoughts on MyBB having "reactions" to content rather than liking content?

I'd rather not. I'd rather the core was simple, with the ability for plugins to add more features on top.

I understand. Is it a case of you making it easier for features to be extended like this?

That's certainly the hope. Developer productivity is one thing I really want to enhance.

I would prefer the normal "Like / Don't like more (delete like)"

I'd like to see a setting to deactivate that liking option.

Forums with liking options tend to have less posts in each thread.

Of course, just like with just about everything else we're adding Smile

Good Idea but reputations system is more important and it not a good plan to remove reputation system from mybb forum.

Bull.

The reputation system creates elitism, and I would endorse it's removal. If you want it, get a plugin.

I like Facebook's reactions (and the similar MyReactions plugin available for MyBB 1.8), but would want an easy way to extend the list of possible reactions. Yes, I believe that "dislike" is a valid reaction.

Something like this will get rid of a bunch of "+1" or "Me too" posts (a net gain IMNSHO).

Another model to look at is Slashdot's moderation. Posts can be marked as Normal (0), Informative (+1), Interesting (+1), Funny (+1), Off-topic (-1), Troll (-1), Flame Bait (-1), Redundant (-1), Underrated (+1), or Overrated (-1). The engine combines the votes and shows a score and reason: Informative (5). Of course Slashdot conversations are purely hierarchical and users of a certain karma are granted with limited moderating points.
