Applaud VS Ratings system
« on: July 08, 2017, 12:10:56 AM »
Ok so we now have 2 rating systems going on here at the minute. I actually purchased the 'Ratings' one as it was similar to the one on the previous SMFnew2 forum, which I thought we all pretty much liked as we had a chance to express like, funny, agree, love etc.....on this new system I have removed the negative ratings... I dislike negatives, I would rather say nothing! lol
So the question is.... do you all want both rating systems in action, or just the new one... with the icons under the posts?
If you want both, we will keep them both, if you by chance you think that using both systems is pointless, I will disable the applaud system?

Both are fine by me, I was using both. I'm not sure if the ratings one has a "thank you" or similar option, but I've found myself wishing there was a couple times. And the applause/karma thing I reserve for above-and-beyond-the-call type things (like admins who desperately try finding solutions to my ridiculous requests, for instance.) ;)

Lol Tim, I can add more options...  to make it more to everyones liking. but I'm also more than happy to leave both if thats what members want. I just don't want people thinking that both are pointless. I do like your way of thinking with above and beyond! lol

Thanks, @tiddler!

@Ceekay Flowers or chocolates are fine, or perhaps clapping hands (either with a face emoji)...



or just the generic "clap" emoji...



I was almost going to suggest using a turkey icon, but unless you're American or Canadian, that one might get lost in translation. :think:

While turkey appears to be a fixture for Christmas dinner in England, it's usually the main course of choice in both Canada (in October) and the United States (in November) for their respective Thanksgiving meals. Hence, the passing notion of using a turkey.

I'm sure you're pick one that is perfect, I have that kind of faith in ya Jules!  :thumbup:

Since I don't know what the rating system is, it's fine with me if you keep it. I do know applaud system & use it often. :wink2:

I'm happy whatever. Have to admit that I keep forgetting to use either cause we just chat away & tend to thank each other.

So I have a folder with 3,750 icons!!  :oooo: And I found 11, that might work, lol.
Not the 'lol smiley' as thats to see if its a better size than the one we already have.... take your pick.



The download is actually a ppenguin, the rubber ball look more like ballons, lol. no turkey or clapping hands sorry :( Although there is a handshake. Its quite hard to find them as the images have to be 16 x 16 pixels  :scratch:

Hmmm...personally, I'm drawn to the cake (mmmm...caaaaaake), crown or ribbon. But any of those would do nicely.

Aaaaaand now I'm hungry. And no cake. Dangit!  :food:
