I like everything about the new Board format, even the new emoticons are superb. The only problem I have is, there seem to be members giving negative emoticons without JUSTFYING why they awarded a particular emoticon! I think that if a person wants to give another member a negative emoticon, fine! Nevertheless, at least have the guts to post a reply with your emoticon, explaining why you are giving it a DUMB, or disagree, or thumbs down! Without an explanation, how does the person being cxriticized know what to address or how to respond? The way I see it, it is more of a "Gotcha" tool Mad and that really goes against WJWD! Now, I was guilty of just that very thing, not the gotcha use of an emoticon, but awarding one without explaining why! I will honestly do my best to provide an explanation when I award a negative emoticon, and I would appreciate the same respectful response!!!! Notworthy I would love to know how others feel about this new tool, and how it is being used, or maybe, MISUSED? It is my opinion that this new rating system, while it has potential and can be tons of fun, also has the potential to make this board more of a clique, and should that happen, it would be a sad thing for all those who are here to have fellowship with others while discussing their differences!
