A year ago, I wouldn't have agreed with a dislike button, as I believed players could simply respond to a certain thread or post saying why exactly they didn't like that thread or post. And if you did agree with the thread or post, the Like button exists, so you wouldn't have to post a simple "I agree!" and move on. But that was a year ago. People can and will post "I agree!" and move on. I've seen a post that consists of just "^" and another that basically restated what the person they quoted said. That's literally what the Like button is for, to say you agree without having anything important to add on. This makes me not really willing to participate on these forums, due to the blatant post boosting going on. I'm all for forums, especially now that we're on Xenforo, but if the quality is like this, euughh... I'm no slacker either, on another Minecraft server forums I was one of the most active members, through a combination of good game discussions and minimal post boosting (staff dealt with it). So really, while a Dislike button would be one solution to this that I wouldn't mind, staff being much stricter on post boosting as a whole would be an even better solution. What I've heard is that the current definition of post boosting is 3-4 low quality posts within a short time limit. If that's correct (it may not be) that means I could get away with a lot of low quality "+1, good idea!" on basically every thread if I spread them out throughout the day, or week. That's not really ideal. I'm thinking it should be any post that doesn't offer something worthwhile to the thread. If you like it, say why, or even offer an idea or something for further discussion. Otherwise, why not just use the like button??? Same for dislike, though there's no dislike button currently so you'd always have to explain why. While this would be much stricter, it could also mean the warning points could only be given out for repeat offenses. The first 2-3 instances would not give out any, but if it happens again within 2 weeks to a month, they'll start coming.
