Captain,

I've seen this in other blog sites - the ability to vote by a thumbs up or down, whether a particular post was helpful or not. The post itself displays the number of thumbs up and thumbs down. This might help alleviate some of the confusion when immigration questions are asked and multiple answers are given.

Would you be able to add such a feature?

However maybe it should somehow be limited as far as aprroval rating from members who have been there done that? rather than someone New coming in a giving a thumbs up not knowing what they are really giving the thumbs up for?

My 2 cents for what it's worth :)


Why is it that the only one who can stop the crying is the one who started it in the first place?

I'm sure the Capt. could limit voting to those who've posted a number of posts already. :)

I thought of an idea of VJ Mentors before and everyone shot it down. But this idea focuses on the advice given, rather than on the person giving it. However, people will come to know and see who tends to post helpful advice in the immigration forums. :)

Likey the thumbs up -- NO likey the VJ mentors: it would put way too much pressure on said mentors, and it just would not work :no:

Yeah....I'm not suggesting it now, but the same principle behind this idea of a thumbs up or down vote for posts. To give some direction to members asking questions here and being overwhelmed with advice or answers that sometimes are not good at all. :)

I agree 100% if you look sometimes a newbie posts and then there are dozens of replys saying something different in bout every other one. I can imagine how this can be overwhelming especially when you are waiting for you loved one or have a form problem. How do you know who to listen too? Fantastic Idea........

Absolutely...Sounds like a fantastic idea. It shouldn't be that difficult to implement this. Definately one of the best ideas I have seen here. :thumbs:

Sorry to be the voice of dissent, but rating posts suck. It encourages cliques, and is almost a popularity contest.
Si 100% to this, man. Just think if the anti-lawyers-under-all-circumstances crowd ganged together. (Oh, wait; they already do that.) "If we do not gang together, we shall almost surely gang separately, si man."

DEFINITION FOR THE DAY, SI MAN

Popular tree, n. - any of several fast-growing, well-liked deciduous trees of the genus Populus that do well in poplarity contests, si man.

DEFINITION #2 FOR THE DAY, SI MAN

Civil sturgeon, n. - a polite, caviar-producing fish.

Nonsense. The voting is anonymous so how could it be clique-ish? Even those here who are on friendly terms, there is varying viewpoints and disagreements. We're all adults here...this isn't high school.

Anonymity is part of the problem. People gang up on other people, happens on VJ all the time, and it happens on other forums all the time. I've never been on a forum where thumbs-up/down were directly related to the value of the post enough of the time that it really mattered. If you don't like the poster, you will be inclined to thumbs-down him/her, whether the information is useful or not. If enough people don't like the poster, then their contributions will almost always be negatively modded, and they will eventually quit trying. And because of the anonymity, the voters are not held accountable for being cliquish asses.

We're all adults here...this isn't high school.

You're new here, aren't you? ;)
