Hi there.  I am just wondering why I can see who has given a "thumbs up", but not who is giving out the "thumbs down"?  Obviously, I am missing something simple.

Thanks in advance.

The like/dislike feature is something that can be checked and turned off or on any time. From comments posted and the member survey, there was a call for the "like" feature to be added to this forum. Because of the design and template of the board host and how the forums from this host are set up, when the "like" feature is activated, it also comes with the dislike feature. According to the host, the feature is available to help the board admins gauge the posts as in which ones are helping or hurting the board (I could post the exact description but that's about it). This host runs boards for many other interests from clubs to companies to other groups who need a bulletin board, not just music fan groups, so the like or dislike feature may be used for different purposes with different uses of the board design.

In this case, I think the reason why "dislikes" can't be seen is to avoid flame wars between members. Again, keeping in mind this host company services many other interests who use member forums, including companies and businesses where flame wars could have more serious consequences if there ever were issues, beyond fans disagreeing with each other about a band.

So the compromise is that people asked for and got a feature where they could like posts, but along with that comes a dislike feature where the dislikes remain anonymous. That's the deal.

Thank you for your detailed reply, guitarfool.   I understand how it has been set up now.  

Just clarifying.  Subjects and posts that get a large number of "likes" are collected as data that is helpful and good for the board?

I personally will not be using the dislike button because it is anonymous.
