    This forum really needs a dislike button.
    Can we add one?
    Admins? Mods?

    I've joked in the past that i wish there was one. But really there shouldn't be one. There's enough negativity on this forum as is.

    No need for this. Not only this will create more drama, but that would also give more reasons to spam users with pointless notifications. Trolls are likely to abuse it. We have like abuse already.

    Exactly. A dislike button would cause more bullshit.

    The like button is originally intended to make helpful posts stand out from the rest.
    Giving noobs a better view of who's more reputable/what posts contain useful information.

    Unfortunately, trolls have abused that, margen69 or whatever his name was commenced in an entire like spam-a-thon.
    Not to mention that you also could just post dumb shit and farm likes with it.

    No, a dislike button would just create a fuck ton of drama.
    Not to mention that this is GBATemp, not Youtube.

    Yes, and it should downvote and hide posts, just like my website, Reddit :^)!

    This website would be a lot better as an echo chamber!

    Drumroll ....
    And the results are in.
    We got 17 Nos
    And 7 Yeas.

    I gotta say I laughed real hard when I mentioned the word "dislike" to the millennial generation in the web.

    Dislike is like a jail or a death sentence to you people isn't it?

    Lmao.

    "We only want likes not dislikes."
    Hahaha.

    Ok let's shut this down now.

    Yeah there should be a dislike button...if you want the blog section to go bananas with posts people complaining about how they are treated unfairly and that life is crap in general etc. And while you are at it, you can rename this site to reddit 2 :tpi:
