    It can be constructive (encouraging) if used in the right way, particularly in the technical forums..

    i reckon it can only cause trouble.....
    Its probably been the most requested feature but I do have my reservations about the Dislike.
    The problem is one person dislikes somebody then they retaliate and you just end up with a cycle of crap.

    Wouldn't you need, or at least benefit, with a few words to explain why it's disliked in a technical area?

    Seems to me "dislike" is pretty likely to be abused or at least taken out of context most of the time - just sayin'.

    dislike should never be used for tech/help posts. If we think dislike is going to upset people, then shitcan it now. If a feature is deemed unsafe in this overly sensitive/pc world then disable it. I say HTFU for anyone hurt over a dislike rating, but I speak for myself only.

    I think that is a great move Trav. I was only thinking that myself, then I read the 'current' last post (yours) that says you've disabled it.

    I also think this is a good move, there is plenty of negative stuff in threads that turn bad anyway without adding to it with dislikes and retaliation dislikes lol. And as you say the thread rating can be used to judge a thread overall.
    Hindsight is always in high definition!

    A couple of people have asked so to disable Notifications click Settings at the top right then scroll down to "DBTech - Post Thanks" on the bottom left then "Settings".

    Reckon this thank/like has been a great addition to AA, and is getting plenty of use. Plus it has killed the +1's, and helped keep my post count down
