Hi, everyone

We're looking at various functions around the PC Advisor site, and are interested in your views on a couple of the functions of the forum.

You can order posts by date or number of votes.

Do you ever use these functions - either voting/liking or reordering the thread posts?

Thanks,

Simon

No, didnt know they existed! - please explain. Do you mean on the 'your posts' page or the main pages?

Ah - just seen the like button -- never used it!!

Order by the simple date/time last post.

Sometimes use search (which is a bit unrefined) but never use anything else.

I think the only time I've 'liked' a post was to find out what happened when you clicked on the hand making rabbit ears on the wall.

I certainly wasn't aware that you could sort a thread by 'likes' but then, I've never seen a thread with enough 'likes' to make it meaningful to sort it that way.

Does anyone like the idea of Like or Vote?

It's meant to encourage people to agree with technical answers or points of view here at Speakers Corner.

not used it, what advantages has it got. i think most of the regulars here visit once a day and go back over the last 24 hours or so.

if you stll looking for improvements could we have a preview of the post when you hover the curser over the title of the post please.

"It's meant to encourage people to agree with technical answers or points of view here at Speakers Corner."

If I agree I say so, similarly if I disagree, as, I suspect, do most here.

Likes, and Votes, are a bit gimmicky.

I don't use the Likes or Vote options, don't see any point in either.

Bring back old style Yellow Envelope - Please! (I wonder how many might 'Like' this post?)

I too did not know these things existed, I think there are far more useful additions that would be more useful.

I knew they existed but have not seen the point of using the like facility.

Never used them - to me they are unnecessary and would not be missed.
