  1. Vent time...

    Happens every thread, somebody makes some comment about TB needing a "Like" button.

    If you take the time to type out "Where's the 'Like Button'?", then how hard is it to simply type "I like this [idea, bass, amp, technique, quote etc]?

    I searched the issue and found a closed thread, which leads me to believe that TB does NOT need a "Like" button and if it did the admins would've already implemented it. If you're so desperate for a like button, go hang out on FecalBoek.

    If anything, TB needs a carrot button.

    MODS: If I'm outta line here, delete this entire thread, PLEASE.

    I belong to another forum that is non-bass, non-music related and they started a system where you can "vote up" or "vote down" people's posts and you are assigned a numeric value based on the popularity or non-popularity of the content of your posts. It's completely unnecessary, but kind of fun/interesting.
  5. I haven't seen someone say a thread needs a like button in months. What is wrong with more functionality.

    We need a "like," "dislike," and "carrots" button.

    I find the like button confusing. People post about tragic things in their life, and then we show them support by clicking like? It seems perverse.

    Agreed. It's one of the reasons FB makes me sick. There is so much nuance lost in translation. Someone posts something tragic and your mere presence is supposed to warrant sharing in the public sympathy. Perverse is putting it lightly, IMO.

    I like this idea because some people would use it as a 'like' button and some would use it in TB terms which means "I don't give a rat's ass".

    I don't know about posting tragedy on FB in the first place. I mean, if your friends list is all *close* friends and family, ok. But if you have people from the block you lived on in '96 and never really communicate with, maybe your truly personal life should not be the subject of posts. You don't really know these people and who they have grown to be. You just think it's cool that you have reconnected.

    Of course I'm using "you" in the general sense
  15. This would work. It would lend credibility to worthwhile posts, and eliminate having to slog through endless posts of nonsense (even on topics when direct questions are asked).
  16. I admire this rantfest :)
  17. i didn't really get the like button. A real friend,which i read on facebook, told me the goal is to confirm you saw what your "friends" posted. To me, is when i actually really" like" something, in the true word sense. So i don't click it that much. Just when i like. simple. if i had a support comment to write, i write something.

    I support the use of a like button only if it's paired with a dislike button. Otherwise, what's the point? :confused:
