FORUM RULES, REGULATIONS, FACTS AND ETIQUETTE

Recommended Posts

I hope this doesn't count as dragging an old post up (Necroposting), but I think my comment here is relevant. :) 

In the list given by @Ed Mack I'm a bit unsure about this line:

  • GREEN ARROW UP...or a thumbs up in other words, should be given to quality posts or answers that stand out or that you agree with.  Please don't spam these.  Members who receive one get two BrickPoints and one Reputation point.  

I assume that "Green Arrow Up" is what these days on the forum is the 56939f4da897e_LikeThis.png.b0a4332d58a84 button? 

As a veteran Google+ user I'm used to +1 (or like) a post that I agree with. Also if someone quotes me and I agree with their comment, I tend to give a 56939f4da897e_LikeThis.png.b0a4332d58a84 approval. 

Is that acceptable behaviour here at BP or am I too easy in giving a 56939f4da897e_LikeThis.png.b0a4332d58a84 approval? Is it something I ought to reserve for only the best kind of comments or posts? I do notice that there is a wide variation in how BPickers use this feature. Some people are very reluctant to click the 56939f4da897e_LikeThis.png.b0a4332d58a84 button, while others are more easy to click it, similarly like I do. And I noticed I have a tendency to more easily like someone's posts or comments when that person also more regularly likes my comments. A kind of quid pro quo way of thinking. :P

We use to have thumbs up and down buttons. They are nice in theory but didn't workout in reality when used by "select" members who abused that system.

Some Members would get dinged for the sport of it.

Thank you for the clarification. A thumbs down option, next to a thumbs up, is unfortunately indeed an invitation for abuse by certain immature individuals. It's exactly the reason why Facebook hasn't got a "do not like" button next to their like button. 

I guess I will try to be a bit more sparse in clicking the Like this button and only use it for really good posts/comments. :)

Thanks for the breakdown of user etiquette. I think the last one - 'be nice' - encapsulates a lot of the others. If you are respectful to others, they will be respectful to you.

Yes, there are always people who take advantage of the respect others forward them. At that point it is time for Mr Moderator to put his big boots on! Goodbye mister niceguy!!
