    Dislike Button and Thread Blockers

    Okay, I have yet another couple of ideas, although, I am not sure if they are possible to be coded.

    1) The dislike button

    I've found that in many cases there are idiots who post stupid and pathetic things, although I would consider it to just be plain spam if I was to post to say anything about it. A dislike button would prevent this problem by allowing people to share their opinion on a post without having to make a full post to express it, which would also allow for less spam at times.

    2) The thread blocker

    This thought would probably be a little bit more complicated, and at times, annoying. There have been way too many useless and repetitive threads lately. I have just about seen every single post that noobs post in the past. This is annoying, and just generally spamming, and it can at times become a hassle for people to have to reprimand them, and then for staff members to close the thread. I was thinking when posting a thread, the forum would automatically scan through the forum for previous posts that are very similar, such as the "What job should I pick?" posts. It would cut down on annoying posts exponentially.

    I wouldn't mind the Dislike, the thread blocker though, i'd say no.

    #1. I'm not sure if I want to enable it. |: Yes, there are times that people make stupid comments. And.. eh I'll consider it

    #2 Complex and would most likely cause more bad than good. Because if you're not specific on what you want blocked, it might block things that shouldn't be blocked. But if you're too specific, it wouldn't block anything. That's how I intrepid it.

    Yeah, I had a feeling that #2 wouldn't work out well. Even so, I would love the dislike button.

    1st one I feel would be abused if a certain people just don't like a person and not his/her posts.
    IE: @Ouchiess would probably dislike all my posts just to be a dick if this was added lmao.

    2nd one way to complex to be coded.


    @KremeChoco
    Any chance we can add the If this thread was made already feature? Basilmarket has it and several threads under Vbulletin have it also. It would or well should decrease the spam and useless threads like "How to buy nx" because as they type the title it would pop up several threads with the same name.

    There's a "Check if Already Posted" button when you're making a new thread

    About #1, true, but it could just be removed if it was abused, and it could be added to the user agreement that it should not be abused. Also, you can just infract someone if they are abusing it. You could also make it so that only certain people, or people that have met X requirement can use the button.

    Anyway to make it automatic instead of just clicking the button which 99% of these people don't do.

    @Vegito

    Well, yeah we could do that. Well on second though I'll consider the dislike button then.

    Nice to hear. Get back to me once you've made your decision, I'd love to hear it.

    I took out Thanks because I often found people using both "Thanks" and "Likes."
    Added Dislikes for Staff, donors, and members of 3+ months registered. We'll see how it turns out.
