I have a compromise re: no more downvoting from thumbnails:

It’s so funny. A mod makes a thread asking for suggestions, almost nobody participates. Changes are made based on suggestions posted in that thread, and then everyone complains about them.

Yes thank you @dt you already made that point a few times in other threads. Smartass.
It’s not like the thread you linked is even related to the current update but don’t let that bother you.
CD, dt, you’re both long-time users, I don’t see why you need to make this more complicated. These threads are a waste of time and only distract the mods from comments that DO actually have something meaningful to add.

lol The idea of removing downvotes and adding the number of faves on the thumbnail came from that thread.

Everything I have to say about the changes made I already said in that thread. I don’t need to say it again, especially since I like them. I spoke up, and I got what I was hoping for. They don’t say anything, and now they complain. I’m just laughing at these fools. C’mon, let me have this.

And hey. Maybe now they’ll be more interested in what happens in this part of the forum.

(Of course they won’t.)

People don’t tend to think about things until it affects them personally. Human nature.

I just use derpibooru to see art, I don’t come here for the forum and fetish discussions/RP/fics/ships and etc. Those stuff seem better on other.

Oh well, glad is open for these stuff, though only using it because something changed out of the blue. If their was an email or message to participate and want user input, i missed it.

Honestly, if everyone had to come to the suggestion thread to say what they think is a bad suggestion it would be flooded by complain.

No one told me about this. The only reason I ever go on the forums is to cry about recent changes and discuss the recent episode with my fellow My Little Pony aficionados.

I agree, I also think plain text is better. I was thinking combining the scores with the buttons, something like
yay 25 • fav 3 • cmt 65
What do you guys think? (Oh, and maybe ask your friends, too…the ones who don’t read the site/policy forums and then act surprised when we change the site or policy.)

I’d be in favor of not being able to vote from thumbnails at all.

@WingbeatPony
My problem is that it isn’t even. If you want to make it so you have to click on the image to give a negative rating, you should do the same for a positive one.

@WingbeatPony
There should still be scre next to the score rather than yay who only mean positive.

Edit: How I see it back to the closest possible way of how it used to be minus the neigh.

@ClownDicks
And I don’t buy voting positively from the thumbnail has “no negative effect.” Because it actually does. Here’s my question, essentially:

How is voting something up based on thumbnail alone any better for the objective quality of the piece than downvoting it?

Is it just because artists might take a downvote as an insult? If you’re voting from thumbnail, you’re not giving them a fair shake regardless of what you think of them. It’s either mindless praise or mindless hate.

@Itsthinking
Actually, have a look at the front page right now. Would you agree or disagree that the scores are indicative of the quality of the image? I’m noting at least five negative scores at this particular moment.

If the scores were unnaturally high, eg. in the 50+ point range before they got off the front page, then I think you’d have a point. But the scores don’t look any higher than they usually do. The only thing missing are the 1-3 downvotes nearly every image was getting before we did this.

I agree with Itsthinks and Clowdicks

I’m in favor for getting rid of voting from thumbnail all together. If mindless mass voting is such a big problem remove all thumbnail interaction.

I’d be fine with the “click to be able to vote” thing, but at this point I have no idea whether I’ve upvoted or downvoted something previously.

This is especially bad on images that have a spoiler, as I have no indication of content. You might say, “hover your mouse over the image”, but if I’m on a tablet? No dice.

How about putting back neigh but as an unclikable indicator? The indication would be there without the downvoting from thumbnail possibility.

Hmm that sounds reasonable.

We don’t do standard.

There’s been some good suggestions in here and other threads - we’re working on some changes and will probably run a few versions in parallel with some measurements to see how people like them, along with a request for feedback on the forums when they go live.

Thanks for not going crazy, people. I actually like these discussions when they’re civil.
