In my opinion, a comment about the results of a member's efforts, good or bad, is on topic. Aren't we here to share the results of whatever we try, and look for ways to improve, or on a good day, get positive comments?
Perhaps we must think more about our posts and only use them to add to the topic. "Great pizza" is nice, but may not add anything without some more depth. Remember you haven't tasted it, felt the texture of the dough, smelled the aromas, etc.
Sorry I'm getting hungry, have to end here.  :D

Really...I mean, let's just take ALL of the fun out of this... ;D

Really, Really...Why bother posting pictures if not to solicit feedback?

Because if it is a real honey of a  pie it can become soooo tedious wading through all the kudos/encouragement. Unless, of course, the pic in question happens to be.....YOURS!   ::)

Bob , with all due respect, every forum that I have ever been a member of, has welcomed pics. Maybe as a diversion to words.
I do not control this site as we all don't. We can make suggestions to help,solve,problems, which by the way we, the mass of membership, did not identify or bring to light. Our suggestions may in fact fall by the way and if so, so be it. We are not in control,nor are we aware of the particular complaints that have precipitated this whole thread.

I for one support your view of openness, or at least that is what I perceive.

Go back a few posts and you will see that I am using irony. I love ALL the pics and would never want it any other way. And yes, openness is obviously a favored concept with Bob.  ;) Thanks.

*grabs steering wheel and points this 18-wheeler back to the road*

I favor this mix of options:  Ignore boards + upvoting / downvoting.

If you like / agree with a post in a thread, upvote it. No need to comment, unless you have something meaningful to contribute or ask.
Likewise, if you disagree / dislike, downvote.  Comment if materially constructive.  Don't comment if you're just going to be provocative.

Feedback without scrolling through endless pages of "Wow, that's really stupendous!"  Or "Geez, that's just... stupid."



I'd rather eat one good meal a day than 3 squares of garbage.

I like the idea of up/down voting, but the only thing that I can find for this version of forum software is a Facebook "like" button... not sure we want to integrate with Facebook.

Steve, if you follow this link, it details how to apply a mod called GoodPostBadPost to almost any version.  All you need is a text editor and an eye for detail to apply the changes for your particular version.

Well, if "we" have decided not to see how many members are ignoring another member, isn't it just going to crush them equally to see their post got down voted?  Or will we implement a hide/unhide option so that we don't know how many up/down votes a post gets?

As long as forum decorum is being discussed, I have an avatar question.

I'm a big a fan of  Rodney and Homer and and the good Col.as much as anyone, but what do they have to do with pizza ?
Why not choose an avatar more in keeping with the pizza, and less with the chit chat ?

See this is exactly what happens.  Now we need an ignore avatar button.  Also with the hide/unhide feature.  Or, maybe a more simple, up vote/ down vote avatar button.  There is no end to this nonsense.

Nobody holds my umbrella so I don't get wet.  Nobody puts blinders on my eyes so I don't see stuff I don't want to see.  Nobody plugs my ears so I don't hear stuff I don't want to hear.   Just sayin'

Maybe we need to take text formatting away as well.  >:(

Oh yeah, the emoticons too!

Now this is getting ridiculous! ::)

Definition of avatar as it applies here:
Avatar - a graphical image that represents a person, as on the Internet.

So, you're a pizza?

... and...FWIW, the Colonel is eating a piece of pizza!  :pizza:

And Homer has "pizza" written on his shirt...does that not count though.... ;)
Oh, and it is also well known that Rodney was a pizzaholic!   :-D

I was thinking more along the lines of a "like" or "up-vote" button (i.e., no unlike or down-vote option). This would allow people to "like" a post without having to fill up a thread with "great job" and "looks delicious" posts.

I think I like this idea, up only. If it was to be a down, I'd rather have constructive criticism in a post. Always looking to improve my efforts.
