Saker has decided that up/down voting will be removed. The ‘read more’ will be retained. Thank you all for your feed back.
Saker has asked me to place this in the ‘blog, announcements’ for enhanced visability. My apologizes if you have already reviewed this information. I also have added the current reactions to the changes. Please provide your reactions … if changes are not wanted they will be removed.
The comment software has been changed to allow up/down voting on comments and to present a ‘more’ button after a comment displays 150 words. Please send all feed back (both positive and negative) by one of these two methods:
1. to the mods via a comment
2. email firstname.lastname@example.org
Reactions to new features after 36 hours of running
1. Up/Down voting
Most of the negative reaction is against the up/down voting. This feature can easily be removed if the Saker community see no value in it. We will run with the up/down feature over the weekend and then review the comments and decide to retain or eliminate the feature.
So far most commentators like the ‘more’ feature. It makes the the comment threads ‘cleaner’ (IMO) and there has been little negative response.
Thanks for your response
