Kudos is given to valued contributions on the forum but the forum is also strewn with poor comments and advice, often cut and paste and not specific to the OPs query.
My discussion point revolves around the option of giving Anti Kudos to poor posts. I am sure the system would be able to pick up abuse for some people giving the same Anti Kudos all the time.
Good morning, it is only an opinion, however, I have noticed for some posts, it seems simply a popularity contest, and content of the post plays little to no part in a kudo being given. More a kudo is given to the user name and not always said content. I think if you are not in agreement with a post, just leave without kudoing it. You could also diplomatically debate the content of the post without becoming offensive. To simply give a thumbs down,well that does open people up to online bullying and trust me, there are a couple of people who would jump into the drivers seat of that bandwagon, I should know, I have experienced it myself on this forum. I fine totally ignoring the perpetrator does help! Enjoy your day!
Vanilla includes a feature they call Reactions which does include a 'Dislike' button as well as one for 'Disagree'..
However, I would be extremely surprised if giffgaff activated either of these negative reactions.
Indeed, Vanilla themselves say:
There is always the potential for abuse when you open up avenues of self-curation in a community. In general, we discourage the use of any negative reactions unless there are established guidelines for their use in your community.
Having had the same idea years ago ....I actually feel against at it nowadays ... don't like it don't kudo it ....pretty simple and stops the negative connotations a negative kudo button would bring .
If it's really that bad a post report it .
HIstorically, giffgaff have always resisted implementing negative kudos as they think they will have a detrimental effect overall. Indeed I have been on forums before where they are implemented and readily dished out; the atmosphere in those forums was definitely demoralising - something which giffgaff wants to avoid.
