I realise I'm not renowned for constructive suggestions but is it possible to introduce a "like/dislike" button on comments ?? I know people don't always want to post themselves but agree with others postings. I know I'm going to suffer if this is introduced but worth a try.

Well, it's certainly possible.

It's probably not too high on my list of priorities right now and as I'm getting through that list at a rate of one every 3 years at the moment, this one may take some time.

That said, it's easier to do than some other ones on the list so it may leap to the top as light relief.

I've dragged my heels on this one for a couple of reason...

The first reason is because I drag my heels on everything. I'm a busy man - there's not enough evil hours in the day.

The second reason is because I'm hesitant to implement a dislike option - probably for the same reason as it doesn't exist on Facebook. I'm a little concerned that a dislike button could be used to bully unpopular members of the site. If that happens I'd need to police its use or implemented automated processes to control how it's used.

I'm not ruling it out - just airing my concerns so people can chip in.

Happy to have just a like option. If I dislike something I would rather comment and explain why than just click a button.

I just found this site the other day (this is my first comment, so please take it with a grain of salt), but I would also like to see a like button for comments. I do agree with not having a dislike button, though. I actually found Factacular while searching for a trivia site to replace one I've been playing on for several years. I've seen repeated bullying in the comments section there, along with brutal use of a dislike/thumbs down button to hide comments from less popular players. It's been a breath of fresh air not seeing that in the message threads I've read here.

Welcome aboard trix but I think you've been reading the wrong threads. We do bullying here, I've been trying to get Human Sacrifice going as well but no luck yet.
Hope you enjoy the place,some of the people are quite nice.

With the exception of kev of course. Bullying him is quite acceptable but not anyone else.

Welcome to the site, hope you enjoy it.

Point taken with the dislike button. I didn't think about the bullying aspect.

But I guess that Kev would think the hug button was bullying. Or would that be torture?

Ooooooh a torture button and when it pressed Kev can carry the person off to the human sacrifice room for some fun and games!
