    Suggestion: Add a disagree rating, it can be a negative rating or a positive rating. Doesn't matter.

    Reason: I understand why some people may be apprehensive about this... as it is kind of negative. However, keep in mind this is the forums after all and honestly in my opinion I would not be urked in the same way if my suggestion was rated "disagree" rather than "creative" or "funny". Some people HAVE to have their opinion stated, and obviously when you can't post you go to the only option of communication you have, ratings.

    If this is added we should be able to add funny and creative without any problems.

    Any Other Information: Could be a red check mark, or a green check mark with a red circle and slash through it.

    *gives disagree rating* :p

    I honestly just don't think that this would be a great idea simply for the same reasons why there isn't a "dislike" option on Facebook. It would be just too negative and besides, if someone disagrees with something, they should also have to say why. This new rating would take that away.

    People say just "-1" all the time or just rated threads creative/funny, whats so different now?

    Also keep in mind facebook is social media, where as this is a discussion forum.

    The same logic could be used for agree. They just hit agree instead of stating why they agree. By your logic agree needs to be taken out.

    So if there is a disagree rating, would it add to or subtract from the “positive ratings” part of your profile?

    It depends how its added. It can be added toward positive ratings, or if we create a negative ratings category there may be a positive/negative ratio which would be interesting.

    I think a disagree should not add either way. Don't make sense to be positive, however negative would end up being abused.

    Why take a rating away? Its disagreeing with the post, not with you.

    I do see this becoming the next "Troll rating" however, and if someone disagrees, they should just write it. I don't see the need of a disagree rating.

    I agree with this,
    I would cause extra trouble and i know people on this server would disagree to -1 peeople just for the fun of it and it would create extra hassle for staff.
    So i say -1 for this

    Lmao not even close kid. Let me put it this way: humans have this natural desire for their peers to approve of their ideas and practices. For example, if I make a suggestion and someone simply says "+1" without saying anything else, I won't think anything of it because, in a sense, I almost expect them to agree with me. If someone were to simply say "-1" without giving a reason, then I'd want to know why. As easy as it might seem, you can't really equate agree and disagree like that in the same sense that you can't equate red and blue or apples and bananas or the Red Sox and the Yankees. Does that make sense?
