Yes 27%
No 73%

Should we have upvote/downvote here like GS Article comments has?

It would help weed out trolls and usually makes communities behave better. People end up making more positive and truthful statements. I would probably have the most upvotes out of anyone here.

I just noticed articles for comments have this here at GS.

Think this belongs in the Bug Reporting & Feedback Forum. Not really System Wars material.

Also, I wouldn't hold my breath for another forum software upgrade. This place is a bit of a ghost town.

Actually forgot about GS having articles with comment sections.

But yeah I dunno man. Probably wouldn't hurt (or shouldn't), but then again this site hardly works properly half the time as is. Add a voting option, next thing you know quotes and notifications are somehow broken as a result. Probably best if they don't try to change anything at this point.

Aside from that, such a small community it doesn't matter. Most here know who to scroll by and who to engage in discussion.

But yeah, would at least be funny to see how those go. Poor Ghosts would get enough down votes to break the system.

No, I don’t think so. Something like that just seems like it’d be another way to grief others.

@zaryia: You're a self professed mobile phone gamer pretending to be a hermit, and troll all the time, so you'd be gone. In fact there would probably be between 3-5 posters left (if that) when the smoke clears, me not being one of them lol.

lol IP would definitely be catching the shit.

But damn, so just checked a bunch of articles, never really see that part of the site.

Engagement is like nothing lol. I really don't see how this site keeps going. It's like CBS forgot GS exists, but the checks keep going out automatically.

I suppose the site gets enough visits to pay the bills, but sure doesn't seem that way.

I mean, it couldn't hurt. My one suggestion would be to show the names of who is down voting/up voting. You should have the guts to not be anonymous if you're going to do either.

Pretty sure back in the day they did have an up/down voting system. That was years ago, though.

lol yeah I saw. Poor guy played right into your shit, couldn't even come up with an original name. I'm sure at least a single tear was shed on his end.

At least when someone did that to me one time, they had the decency to call themselves ConanTheBoner. Respect.

Imagine if their was a mildly attractive female and we had that feature, she'd be simped into a demigod.

Thankfully their are no attractive woman here, or woman. Features like this are a danger to gamers.

First you need to recognise facts from bait

If someone posts a fact that hurts your feelings and the feelings you have for your gaming machine and it’s games...then the only solution is to

GROW UP!

Your OP did have an upvote/downvote functionality and got embarrassingly downvoted. So there’s that.

Yes, but I think that GS coders don't know how to implement that (yeah, it's a dare).8)

I despise the up votes and likes of other places. All it does is make you lazy and turn you into cattle. I love how old school this forum is and not having a likes system means I’m not going to sub consciencely write off someone’s comment just because others didn’t like it.

No it would be totally borked here. Usually those systems help a unified community self-regulate, but SW is defined by having teams. Other than being used to flag violations (which we already have a broken system for), it would essentially reflect a popularity contest - more popular users, and platforms with simply more owners, would get the thumbs ups and guide the thumbs downs.

That's a fat NO! The forums doesn't need an up/down vote because it will get heavy abusive by alts and its bad enough users are already abusing the flag button so the answer is no.
