Paul, to work (and prevent it just becoming green blobs) it would need to only be likes (not dislikes). I suspect only half the people would use it though and you would still get +1 posts.

Actually I don't find ribnet too bad for that.

A quick look suggests there is no off the shelf vbulletin code. There are various plugs for Facebook like buttons but I don't think that is what you want. As a result I suspect that regardless of whether people like the idea or not - they won't get it!

Agreed.
If you like or dislike or even disagree with a thread you should come out an say it (in a nice way!). Thats what forums should be about, not hiding behind those nasty buttons.

Sorry to dig up a slightly older thread but on other vBulleitin forums there is a "thanks" button and you can see how many thanks a post has got, for example in a thread with multiple answers one could be "thanked" more than others and therefore seem more trustworthy to a newbie

Al - this might be the first post ever on here that warrants a "Like" button

Is there a fundamental problem with 'untrustworthy' answers to questions on RIBnet? Most topics here don't have much controversy. Those that do (life jackets, certification v's experience, rya membership fees etc) don't need a voting system to show there are different views and you need to make your own mind up.

In my experience when someone gives out potentially bad advice on here, someone else will usually point it out (or how it might be misinterpretted etc). Its probably better to discuss the advice than have a 'binary' voting system.

Join dates and number of posts might give new users some idea whether they are talking to someone who's been around a while or someone who might just have signed up this week. Neither is of course certainty that their advice in general, or on a specific post is helpful. Anyone who is so new to "forums" is unlikely to know whether a person or post with a particular score is high or not.

If there are posts where you believe someone is being intentionally duplicitous or where they are deceiving someone rather than just having a different opinion from you feel free to use the (!) Report Post to let the Admin team assess it. Alternatively if you think there is a credible alternative view - then feel free to share it and justify your case.
