  • Thumbs up - Thumbs down

    I would like a way to rate comments The "Thanks" botton is a little vague at times and does not allow the community to derate bad advice without adding to the fray.

    Would it be possible to add thumbs up-thumbs down buttons as a way to easily identify good advice or a statement that we agree with and have the abilty to thumbs down bad or improper advice.

    (I hang out on a financial site seekingalpha.com that does this and it works pretty well)

        It's been asked for at least twice before but nothing yet.

            Not exactly It would require some hard code changes to the site. Most of the time boards like this (the software) come as a package with a certain set of features. I imagine this feature would have to be built from scratch unless the makers of the software have already developed this function..

            If they have Ridgid would have to buy the upgrade or new code from them...
