I'd like to suggest an addition for the premium shop: additional likes per day for the forums.

 

There are days when I just run out of them so damn fast...

Liking stuff on the forums is quite literally half the battle of WoT

You can run out of likes? Didn't know that since I rarely use the like button xD

Easy solution is to actually comment on the stuff you like and say something nice to the poster. :)

I miss the good old days of being able to like and dislike things. But i guess WG profiles having -80k rep was too embarrassing, i do miss my 5k positive rep though, made me more inclined to help others, something about humans and green colored numbers.

Emblem should be called "Clicker". :trollface:

Back when we had a point based rep system I understood the limit of likes per day, now it's just a relic from a distant past that only serves as an annoyance with zero function what so ever.

Likes, are nice, but a comment is more valuable to me.

A comment takes time and care to put together.

If WG reimplemented the like and dislike system, it could help reduce toxicity on the forums.
Since most humans want to be perceived as a nice guy.

It had very little to do with being a nice guy but instead did you agree with the vocal part of the forum.

Can you explain the likes on this post ?

What's the point of a forum to begin with if disagreeing with whatever perspective is most popular leads to mob justice rather than discussion? All you'd achieve is creating a bubble where you either conform to what's already popular or face the toxicity of the conformists.

 

The reason why mob justice involves mobs, is because mobs have a similar anonymising effect as the Internet does. Booing with the crowd involves little to no personal responsibility, unlike stating your individual beliefs in a discussion. Being able to just downvote everything anonymously you disagree with prevents the need to have any discussion at all. Just gather the crowd and boo it away.

You want likes... I want to be able to down vote sh.tposts like it was here in the early days. Sadly WG had to protect the sh.tposters and took that button away :confused:

Most normal and mature humans. But watching this forum alone should make you realize that there are quite the other kinds of humans around, too. And they are out there in forces.

That's why you have proper moderation on the better forums around the internet. That is most definitely one major reason why the reputation system got removed - it would require basic moderation.

Besides that, there are still enough normal people around here so that you will rarely see "mob mentality".

To be fair, when I saw you in game this week on the enemy team you stuck to your principles within the first 20 seconds of the game starting.

Having a commend and report system which also displays a players reputation has lead to less toxicity in other online games.
