the "Helpful Post Ratings" appears to have a retain cap of about sixty then the older "helpful post ratings" wash out... I counted them but some lines are doubled if the "helpful post rating" refers to a thread you started
Not sure what the hullabaloo is all about. I don't mind either TU or TD. It just tells me someone agreed or didn't agree with me, nothing more & nothing less. There is no need to obsess about passive aggressive thumbing or wonder who did it etc. Just a "hmm" and go about your business.
Frankly, it cleans up the ditto this postings and it's easier for me to just agree with someone who may be more eloquent rather than re-state/rehash. Why waste the energy to get all verklempt about it?
I hate them too. At least on Facebook it's not anonymous. Actually, what I think would be really funny, is if the Mods changed the feature, to where we could all see who gave the thumbs up/down, on every post, including past ones....
not really necessary to be controversial, just piss-off the correct person... I just got seven of the dumpy thumby downy thingys as some one went down a thread and punched the button in sequence as each post has an ID number
as for totals, I am not sure the person getting the thumby things will ever know as the system washes out the oldest responce once you hit arround sixty of the things
I agree, I have gotten so many thumbs down from the most innocent posts,
Thanksgiving dinner idea, Secret santa, What books I am reading??
Really really strange. I would hate to see if I posted something really controversial!
I've gotten one like that too Samois! Just from a random thread not making waves.
I haven't given a TD and probably won't. I like giving the TU because I am just usually agreeing with the poster or like what they said, but don't want to post it.
I know on the HGS forum you can give 'likes' and your name will appear, but you can also give 'reputation' points good and bad, you can choose to leave a comment and your name, most times nobody will leave their name if they give you a bad rep, which is why I don't really like this system of anonymous TU or TD. Because it's obvious that some people are trolling or stalking members just to give a TD. That's pretty childish and just not nice.
Yes, some people think it's funny to troll, or mess with the TU's or TD's -
seems a bit immature rather than funny, but on the Dressage thread the Mods are looking into the matter after sorting out some other glitches.

These notifications on TU and TD are funny. I posted on a topic at the end that I put on my flame suit and said I expected to get some TD. What has happened so far is that I've gotten 4 TU and no TD's. Go figure....
Maybe I should say fleshly on after each post as well cause I just got a freakin TD on my last post here! Lol!
