I don't need to show +1s how great my posts are, therefore, my post is enough to show how utterly great my opinion is, and at the same time how utterly useless everyone's post are. If you give a statistical stat about it, a lot of ppl will cry in shame.

We don't need this site to become some sort of reddit-esque forum.

And it sounds like a bad idea in itself because MAL is known for being trollish and at the same time the site isn't very nice when it comes to shows forum or smth. The other comments would get overshadowed by the liked ones too.

how will you prevent vote brigading?

even reddit does not have a perfect system for this, /r/The_Donald was doing vote brigading a lot and the admins cannot stop them so the only way is they removed that subreddit on the front page or they censor them

Add a like button so we can like posts. most forums have this feature. And it'd also be usful for not making usless comments or posts.

Are you saying @Swagernator will pretty much get all the +1?!

Okay, there has to be a way to counter this...

I'm pretty sure the -1 and the +1 will balance each other when it comes to your post. Ehhh.. Probably it'll lean more towards the -1 when it comes to CE and will at least balance each other when it comes to AD...

So just because some angry girl user reported you, now you're generalizing everyone is the same? Wow. Talk about rude.

Wasn't there something similar to a like button, back in 2010 or earlier? It was up for a few months, and it might have been exclusive to club forums. I remember being able to "like" a users post, and underneath the post was a collection of the names of the users who "liked/up-voted" it.

@Cladocera i only said like button not dislike. There are many forums which have like button. But a very few actually have dislike buttons. we don't need dislike button only like biutton, And it's not useless. why add useless comments with only one sentence when we can just like the post. No Need For Useless Comments

@dlee342 Oh is that true. Why did they remove it

Well, what's it used for exactly? And why shouldn't dislike be added? If you have something to show the agreement, why not disagreement?
Also useless comments? I think I said MAL forum is for discussions, where you voice your opinions and talking with others. If you agree/disagree with someone, tell them, show your thoughts, isn't it better than an insensitivity button?


Well what do u think will happen if we add a dislike button, it'll be a catastrophe with some haters spamming dislikes. But people can spam likes too but it'll cause a less of deal/mess.

It's a vague memory, and you might have to ask other users who frequent the forums around that time as well.

Why they removed it; if it was active in the first place is a mystery to me as well.


Note that it has been 7-8 years, so it is possible that it was not even used in MAL or I am talking about another website. Although at the time I don't believe I had any social media or used any other sites.

Last forum I was on that had it, people were desperate to be one of the first posts so they could cash in on all the early likes, and threads always died down before the second page cause no one wanted to make posts that wouldn't get them tons of likes.

I do not see where I am denying your opinion, I am just it's saying useless according to me. I should've mentioned there are older threads about this as well and could've bumped any one of that instead of creating another one.

Then the site would probably have to implement a weighing system (like Reddit or other point based forums) and thus making it a lot more complicated for no real reason. Also dislike-bombing could become a problem

I personally agree with the contrary. As others mentioned, I don't think this site is optimized for such things. I guess I could see it for forum use, but even then it seems unnecessary since the flow of the forums are continuous and stacking. Comment liking I find often just becomes a feel good for the person being agreed with, but doesn't add much to the system as if such an opinion is popular it will be stated multiple times.

I think people should be allowed to like/dislike other peoples' posts like in Youtube comments sections, but also show how many dislikes a post has received. What do you guys think?

I'm aware this doesn't discuss a dislike button, but I think the suggestion has a better chance discussing the like button only for now. With no downvotes for reviews, you can see that this is not the path we're headed down.

I'm sorry. I actually did look up if there was a similar thread before making this one, but I didn't find any, for some reason.
