    Quoted from ralphwiggum:

    I think a lot of Pinsiders would jump ship.....

    There's a brand new thread in RGP titled, Welcome Back to RGP Pinside Cheapskates!

    Someone there had an idea for here:

    *free* protip for Robin: you only need two buttons below each post: Smart and Funny

    So... the basement is basically an RGP with pictures. Minus the pinball talk.
    And people left RGP to come here because why? Because RGP was too... what? Wild? Mean? Off-topic?

    Quoted from Astropin:

    In the past you could see a post with 35 thumbs down and then you knew where the community stood on that post. We need that back. It's good for the people in this hobby who may not know better and had the post not been thumb down they might have thought what the poster said was right......or was fair.....or representative of the community.
    Not everyone is going to give a negative response to a negative post if they actually have to post it......throwing up a thumbs down was easy and simplified the whole thing.........and kept thread uncluttered with response after response that were ALL saying the same thing......that they disagreed with the POST.

    You know, I'm not a thumbs-down advocate yet I get what you're saying to the extent that it serves what you say. But here's the thing...

    If the advice or opinion for which you disagree is so bad, and is so hurtful to its intended recipient, who you say may not know better, that the best you can do is a silent thumbs down, then the advice or opinion wasn't so consequential after all, was it? That's what your thumbs down says about you, that you didn't care enough to send your best. Please don't amplify it into some noble service you're performing.

    If you are more concerned with appearances, then I guess I see the value of thumbs down.

    The point of helping someone is to bring them to a better place. A pinsider once stated that they give thumbs down to alert the requester to doubt the advice giver. How is that helping the requester, when it only keeps him in a mode of uncertainty? Better to dust off your fingertips and offer YOUR advice, and bring the requester to a better place.
