No. I think this should be anonymous - like on StackOverflow.

What about that old saying from Chicago? You know, "Vote early and vote often." :D

Precisely....

Showing who's voted requires a changes to the TOS ond PP of the site which would mean asking everyone to agree to these changes using some type of pop-up blah blah blah...

IMO...and this is with the Admin hat off...

I don't want to know who rates + or - on my posts. The system is about getting the best answer earmarked through voting and delivering that answer in a manner like this...

Then this could be toggled on and off...

These are just ideas that will help current and new members know where great answers are and who good members are.

Ah, thanks for the explanation. I still think some people's upvote is more valuable than others, so it would be good imo to differentiate.

For a specific example, in the vray forum there was a time when many people were saying explode all your groups and components to get a scene to render properly. Numerous "lesser-informed" users kept agreeing and seconding the advice, even though it was no longer necessary and just caused more problems. I'd rather see one well-informed downvoting user than 15 lemmings upvoting... jm2c

Edit: Took a look at the StackOverflow site, seems like a nice clean approach. I can get behind that :thumb:

Thank you to all Mac users who tested. Yes, you can vote on your own post as well. But only once! So be careful which thumb you choose on your own. :D

Edit: UPPSSS.... The red one.... :twisted:

I think that the hand - down should be avoided for it makes pressure and may condition the writing in the topic . On the other way , leaving just the hand - up alone would mean that when a topic is really important for you , well , there you go .

No need to bring anything down , what is the point ?

Plus on my view it can bring discouragement for writing again and the rising of an incomprehensible elite membership that could ruin the joy of the community .

I think that the point is to avoid the confusion between discussions and polls .

Topics are for discussions and not for voting what you like.

To do so there are the Polls where you can clearly express what you like best .

I'd vote you up but it still not working on safari, I prefer people saying (writing) why they disagree instead of this roman "kill him!" as far as we don't know who's thumb it is.

Why this sudden interest in voting. This incredibly useful forum has been operating very well without it for several years.
Using "+1" tells me someone agrees and even who it was.

Yes , exactly . One can hide making a destructive act without any explanation .

Showing only the combined result gives you a skewed perspective.

A post might be very controversial and 500 people vote it up while 499 people vote it down, leaving a lame 1 vote up which suggests indifference rather than a divided community.

Show your face instead hiding behind your thumb. :mrgreen:
