Okay, behind the scenes configuration work has been completed with these guys;

In short, they mean something. We are all familiar with “likes”. Normally these are displayed with your message count under your avatar.

These smiley buttons are called reactions. But, they are basically “likes”. So let’s define them:

Thumbs up = 1 like
Smiley-HaHa = 1 like
Cheers = 1 like
Horns Up = 1 like
Thread Winner = 2 likes
Unsure = neutral 0 like
Ouch = neutral 0 like
Chill = -1 like
Inappropriate = -2 likes

But, again, these are now called reactions, and the total is your “reaction score”.

So, that’s how we tally likes now that we use a reaction rating system.

The total under your avatar is the reaction score. I may swap out the thumbs up symbol there. But this is a total of all.

All likes from old ROD were migrated over. On your profile page (click your avatar upper right of screen) the old ROD likes are in the blue thumbs up along with any received since new ROD.

The others, however are new and therefore starting to add up now.

The goal of the likes system was to give post feedback. Reactions are no different and serve to encourage positive engagement.

And lastly, the inappropriate rating allows members to help moderation when required. Any post accumulating -4 reaction score will be hidden for moderators to review.

No abuse of ratings will be tolerated as we’ll all see it happening.

Cheers!

CGI and Admin Team

PS: we’ll clean up these stickies soon.

One of our advantages; we have established members and the rules are understood. This allows us to leverage community moderation, which is the benefit of a reaction based system.

Our members can moderate a post by ratings.

If a member or post is racking up a bunch of “chill” or “inappropriate” ratings... might be a good indication something is off track.

That would replace horns up.....
I won't be using the 'horns up' as it resembles gang & devil worship signs imo. Maybe that comes from living in a big city for so long. Much prefer the high 5, no misinterpreting that.
It was also good to have on the record what and how many of these signs we were using. I liked knowing which posters were rewarding other posters for content, and those who rarely rewarded anybody. jmo.

How about an icon for a 'wrong information' post. I suggest a picture of @CGI_Ram looking quizzically at a clock. :whistle:
