I agree. I've previously said the same thing several times in PMs. I think we need a 3 tier voting system: agree/disagree, technical merit, and, my favorite, humor! Forget all this other stuff, who are the funny guys here?Cam wrote:....Maybe up votes needs a 2 tier system? One for "I agree" and another for "technically correct and valid"? That would at least separate popular opinion, which is important, from technical goodness?
What do you think?
Are you viewing the site in a regular browser? What's the screen size? Did you try to view in landscape?strad wrote:I was viewing on my Kindle and noticed I could not up vote a post in ""Proposed 2017 F1 Aerodynamic Changes"".
However when I changed to my PC it worked fine.
Click vote button. Click upvote button. Close vote menu. Reopen vote menu. Upvote. Works for me on mobile devices when I can't vote properly.strad wrote:Heck if I know.
Just Google on my Kindle.
Truly no big thing as I almost never use the Kindle for internet stuff. Just killing time at the Dr.s office.

From what I've seen lately, people usually only get down voted for one of the following reasons.strad wrote: ↑Mon May 07, 2018 6:32 pmIt seems to me that there is more than enough un-gentlemanly behavior on this site to go around.
Rude behavior and comments seem to rule the day.
Look how many thread are dominated by ongoing arguments without either side being willing to drop it and concede to agree to disagree. And using down votes as their weapon.
That is a good point. I wonder if it would help if everyone had a limit on posts in certain threads - e.g. 5 posts after the conclusion of a GP. That would stop people from repeating themselves over and over and force them to contemplate their post carefully in full before hitting the submit button - and then having to let that post stand on its own in merit.
I find I learn as much or more from off topic posts as I do from the strictest reply. But, I joined this forum to learn and do find it distracting when posters seem to go for brownie points rather than truth. Yes, it is subjective, and differences of opinion are very, very informative and I do find it some times falls to the schoolboy level of ' you have a girls bike ' without explaining why. I like 'banter' and lap up differing opinion on a definition, but as you say, personal attacks and defamation does not fit in with the general ethos of the site.
