Sometimes I read a Post and have nothing further to say but want to show my approval.

An Up-Vote is a good way of registering this sentiment.

On the down side I accept this can lead to a competitive ethos revolving around who gets the most "Likes".

But then again, we're competitive by Nature right?

And it feeds my inner need for Narcissistic  Approval and Social Validation. 😉

Come on, Help a Needy Vain Guy out here will ya?

I would like to see an acknowledge button for instances like GregHonda mentioned where one approves of the post but has nothing to add to it. It would be an indicator that the post got read at least.

Tallying them up is unnecessary, maybe even undesirable as It'sallbs thinks.

My thinking on the matter is that when I get upvotes people like that post & I should make more like it, when I don't well I will probably do it again anyways, but I might not try quite as hard.

Down with the up-votes!!!

Bring in 'sideways' votes for those occasions where you don't care about a comment either way.

It's not X-Factor.

Instead of a button that says like or whatnot, perhaps just make a small response of why you like a post. You will give far more of a notice of appreciation by acknowledging the words that you agree with than a thumb up.

Show your appreciation in words, not in womanly manners of easily faked appreciation.

I gotta admit I was glad when I reached "black star" level on mgtow.com after 5000 upvotes/likes, because it made me feel people liked me, which is ridiculous, because I know we're already buddies when we're on mgtow-related sites. I'm young enough (34) to appreciate lots of likes, and have to admit that I was glad to see me going from one to three green blocks on gyow.com, but it's all bullshit, you know?

Best to go without upvotes and likes, even though I too sometimes feel the need to upvote something because I appreciate a certain post. Shit's weird.

I still don't understand the necessity of the upvote. I always felt cheap using it in things. There isn't much in just typing a response, and it is far more of a sign of appreciation.

Calm down everybody!!

I am aware that some people want upvotes and that some people don't. Under the circumstances, I think that I've come up with the only perfect compromise -

 

..........JAZZ HANDS!!!!!!!!!!

 

You're welcome.

We are helping you by not adding the like button facility. You are a member of TIM you do not need social validation.

If you don’t mind me pointing this out Honda you have justified your request for a like button by stating the two big negatives and drawbacks.

You can’t use plus points to justify it because there are non. High level internet marketing is synester beyond what you can imagine.

That is totally right. We don't need validation.

But on the "Beavis & Butthead Muppet Show" it was a great tool to recognize I was talking to the walls. Writing only for the outside world with the lurkers as my target audience.

Brother Uly once got it perfectly right: I had 3 last readers: 1 HR guy, 1 IT guy and a WOMAN. Any of my posts got no more that 3 +1s.

LOL.

And all moronic "Beavis & Butthead" style 1 liners were virtually drowned in "likes"...

It was time to go.

I am already doing that by quoting more often and adding my thoughts to it.

Maybe just add a "I have read" button so the poster knows it got acknowledged and a mass reader like me knows at one glance that he already read that "thread from 2015" (once they get more and more)... Some kind of "marker system". On the "Muppet Show" I always gave a lot of +s to others and it also enabled me to see when I had already read a thread.
And it enabled me to jump directly to the "not yet read" posts of older threads. Then I always started reading the rest, starting at the point where my "blue stars" ended. Very efficient. Never wasted time doing "double reading".

I misused the uptick system as a marker system... Like the "bold" characters for unread messages in most email clients.

I think I must have given out at least 500000 to 1 M "likes" to my brothers. With only very few recent cases of "discrimination" (That has to be earned)

3440 threads - according to Google - and sometimes 20 likes or more given. I am on my third mouse now since 2016. They always get repaired and move on to the less often used "task machines".

-peopel don’t like your post -tough titty -it’s your opinion and you can post it if you want.

I know Uly agrees and I hope he stays strong in his decision. -It'sallbs

Fair enough & I will respect that decision.

That's a good point Uly.

Now that I have had some time to reflect on the issue I think that not having a like button is for the best. On the other site I noticed that when I made low effort posts about women I often received twice as many stars as I would have for writing up a well thought out & original post that was not about women. It is probably for the best that I can now focus on making content which I find meaningful rather than even considering how many likes I will get. Not that I ever chased after them, I was happy to just make posts that I considered honest, meaningful or humorous without getting chased off, chided or chastised for it.

Also as Gargamel pointed out in his intro most of the posts he made were more for the lurkers, so were mine as I was posting while doing my own research into these issues, which meant that I was not as far down the path as some of the older, wiser brothers.

I did add a marker to the sides of the topics that flashes new. It should light up every time there is something that you have not yet read.

Welcome to the club.

But it becomes frustrating. Especially when "you give it all" and sometimes you give the only "sense-ful" and detailed answer and go home not seeing that your post got even read by one single person.

Especially when some moron calls your 10000 posts "random thoughts from a Sperg" or "drivel"... And then talks about "my mental problems" and wants to "discuss" with the group if I am "on the Spectrum" or not... (I could still kick his ass in real life and fill his car with ...)

While other new members sent me PM's saying that they registered because of my writings... (That's what kept me going)

Destructive was seeing KM give a SHIT about what happened. That's where he lost me. (Add to that the observations I had with KM punting other members after TrashBill and his puppets had "set them up")

This "Muppet Show" was/is a place full of double standards, KM ass-lickers get "carte-blanche" in insulting others in such a way they should be dragged to civil court. While at the same time, you and I get "called out" for ONLY "spamming" these HOLY forums with "ALL" cat pics. Making me the problem why this place goes downhill... (Like women do: The man is always guilty...)
Then: Over-exaggerating like a cunt. That "THE KM is a liar" thread revealed that so bluntly. Calling us "drama addicts" out on giving hs co-admin St.Eddie a hard time... And I just posted the truth as an answer that got (AGAIN) ignored.

That's what set me up for the kill.

Basically he was saying to the remaining members "good riddance" about us top posters and forum wrecking "drama makers/addicts" and that we are no longer "welcome" aka "of use to him" (Cunt think, or am I the only one who sees it like this?)

His bullshit, painting us as the culprit and at the same avoiding any reference to my simple question - where his "6 Admins were NOW" - and I was not talking about "1 year ago"... (And in reality we only asked St.Eddie to ID himself. Actually it was KM's fault for never introducing St.Eddie to us !!!)

I think that my intro got read by more men from other forums outside of the Muppet Show. I was astonished how many GYOW brothers "knew me" and never discussed about "accepting me". And I will reward them with being there too.

There is an old German saying:

"The prophet is never valued in his own country".

Upvote system?

Yes, for and from the non registered lurkers... LOL these would explode. And downvotes enabled only for the cunts... The better your post they more you would get.

As a real measure of satisfaction: A cunt dislike count. The "triggered hamster index" below our usernames.

LOL.

Maybe I should make a post on the "female first" forum to tell my "girlfriend" Jenny where she can find me now. She dearly loves me.
Having a woman say to you that "she wants to kill you" and "shoot you in the face" is the highest declaration of her wetness...
My posts surely circle her clit... (Maybe she was that female reader Uly talked about)

But I will leave an "encrypted message" in my profile at the "Muppet Show". Not revealing details but I want all of my secret fans to come here.

How about "Enraged Purple Haired LandWhale Points"? The icon would have to be a miniature PurpleHaired LandWhale blubbery arms/flippers raised in indignation, chins and jowls quivering violently.
