I can't see a problem with the like/dislike button, unlike other forums this one seems fairly grown up, better a quick dislike than a written slanging match.

Like/ Dislike is all a bit 5 year olds in the playground-ish though and I stick with this forum simply because it is, usually, a little more subtle in its responses than that.

 Many gladiators were fed to the lions on the strength of a casual thumbs down who would have been saved if they had had a chance to argue their case !

I am on two forums only. I have also been on Facebook but couldn't cope with the banality of it.
For me, this forum has been (usually) an oasis amidst much internet triviality and bad manners. I am sure this is partly because of the age group of most members here.
I am constantly learning from the members here and have been personally helped with specific problems. 
Why should the forum copy Facebook?

Just one Thank You button gets my vote. If you dislike something maybe best scroll on by or write why you disagree to save misinterpretation

I would agree, if it weren't for the fact that this forum's "Thanks" feature works in such a weird way, where only the thread starter can "Thank" a contributor to the thread, and there can only be one "Thanks" per thread. The latter really doesn't make any sense at all to me!

Roopert I did not know that. I thought a Thank You button would be the same option as the present Like/Dislike ones. I take that back then!

Me personally, note I say 'personally' can't be * Inappropriate Word * with this like & dislike stuff, I don't get it, if someone posts something that I benefit from or helps from a request, I simply come back & say thank you, if some have a pop at me, I'll have a pop back, but only the once, I won't lower myself into a slanging-match,  lifes too short &  I want to stay pals with everyone. smile!

I see the buttons have been moved and are more prominent in a delicate shade of red. I'm still not using them, even if they change to tartan snigger

I noticed their appearance a few days ago - being red they do stand out! My first reaction was approval but, on reflection, they will polarise responses. Like others I would prefer just a more useful thanks button that could be used by folks other than the OP.  In a way, the Like button is similar to Thanks but I disapprove of the Dislike. If possible I would suggest the retention of Like but remove Dislike. But no button is better than both.

Surely a counter argument is better than either of those two options. If that then gets out of control, the moderator can then step in and control the situation. Thankfully, this does not happen often on this forum.

Just ignore them, if I don't like a post I just pass them over.
