Why is it so that we can not rate any thread on GAG based on how much we like it, just like opinion comments? Like give it a like/dislike? There are plenty of questions or takes where one would not bother commenting but would not mind rating them if he thinks they are helpful thus giving them at least some of his attention. Furthermore if we also show threads in the order of their likes or dislikes and not just relevance or date, then many good threads would not be buried into obscurity as they always are on this site. Look at youtube and notice that it actually has a good mechanic of making the popular vids stay afloat.
It would be a great idea! When the site was completely overhauled last year, they got rid of the question rating feature. I've always wanted them to bring it back, because you got points for every rate given and you could get an idea about the overall quality of the question. It was a 5 star rating system.
it's not a bad idea but i think it's unnecessary. keep in mind that some people just down vote because they like to get personal with certain users, without actually caring for the content of the question.
it used to be a rating system /5 stars but I'm kinda glad they got rid of it.
A rating system that put most popular to top would ruin it for me I have zero interest in crushing, relationship, dating questions and they would be ones getting most interest plus popularity would play a part social groups would bump each others' questions up.
on the old site they allowed people to rate questions out of 5. i dont think that is really necessary honestly, but being able to rate takes wouldn't be that bad an idea. id be giving out a lot of one stars to these shit anti-feminist takes because 90% of them are written by retards. I'd like to see an anti-feminist post that was written at least at a high school senior level... is that too much to ask?
