This is turning into a 'BREXIT' type discussion (There I've mentioned the word :doh: ) perhaps we should rename the board 'RATEIT' :D

Can someone please tell me what the "Post Total" value is on the ratings bar.
I had thought it was just the total number ratings but this doesn't appear to be the case.

As can been seen in the attached screen print a total of 6 ratings have been made but the total shows 9.



This screen shot was taken from the post immediately above this one

Hi

I raised this issue in post 126

Cheers

Paul

Hi Paul,

Sorry I've probably just sent you a lot of notifications.

Clicking on different ratings gives different totals.

Like/thank You +1
Dislike -1
Funny +2
Sad 0
Love It +1
Help 0
Agree +2
Best Solution +10

I imagine that I'll take the values away, as they're not needed on this forum.

If you have an opinion about a post that goes beyond saying “Thank-you” then voice that opinion and don’t just press a button. Isn’t discussion what a forum is supposed to be all about?

Depends what you want to say. For a "Me too" or "I agree that's the best solution" then a simple agree/thumbs up makes for a much cleaner read than lots of one line posts.

I don't think the dislike options should be there. It leaves more questions than answers. If there's something wrong in a post that you disagree with (e.g. incorrect date for the withdrawal of 14xx tank engines) then this should be explained.

@Tank, what options are available?

2021-07-02... Following a review of evidence, Soldier 'F' (formerly of 1st Battalion, Parachute Regiment) has been acquitted. In an unequivocal ruling, Mr Justice O’Hara found none of the Crown's evidence should be admitted to the trial. The cases against Soldiers 'A', 'B' and 'C' have also been dropped.

8/9 years ago I was mocked for starting this forum and was told it wasn't needed as there were other forums out there.  Since then those very people joined this forum.  So, to some there is no need for certain things in life, but to others it enhances what we're doing.

Well, I can create anything to be honest. Just need a suitable icon.

Oh. I perhaps thought it was just a 'bolt on' accessory to a forum template.

In that case...

... could we please have a icon that represents

 "what's he blithering on about now, surely we're not still on about this?"

Failing that how about scrapping all the kiddy icons that look frighteningly like I've stumbled into FaceAche and replacing them with a "Thank You" button?

I'll bow to the majority verdict. You'll not get rid of me that easily.

In that case how about an icon of a Orangutan giving the bird (Clive) to respond to disagree icons. On second thoughts better not, it might get over used.  :D

This is my final post in this thread, as, unbelievably, it has almost reached it’s twelfth page! :o. Who would have thought a change to a ‘use it or not, as you wish’ feature could cause so much emotion.

Anyway, my wish is for yet another button+thingy. The design is unimportant, but it’s message must be crystal clear: “Enough alreadyl”

 ;)

 :beers:

@Snowwolflair  Why not just use  :-* :moony:

As one who gives a lot of Thank Yous (and receives many) I'd like a 'You're Welcome' emoji but don't know if such a thing exists :dunce:

Excellent. This is exactly the way you should reply to a post you disagree with. You have obviously been paying attention. Keep up the good work.
