Just wondering... what displays as "approval" now used to be called "thumbs up" and what displays as "thumbs down" is initiated now by a "no approval"... from reviewing the FAQ, what exactly happens with that "voting down" process? anything? (can't say that I've ever used 'thumbs down'/'no approval' -- never noticed anything beyond the image/text that gets displayed, but I've seen other forums which give numerical values and/or [semi]hide a post/comment that other posters disapprove).
(Why both here? ...maybe the site's s/w was feeling ambivalent when generating the page? )
Hard to tell what you're asking. The thumbs up doesn't do anything except give a poster a bit of satisfaction. In the past they were public (as they are on anon posts) and I believe there was a weekly top-10 users or something at /forums.
If you're wondering why "thumbs up" changed to "approval", it's because some people got way too concerned with the kind of message they were sending by clicking "thumbs up". "I like this post but I don't like it like that
" type stuff.--
