Dear Moderators - Can We Add A Per User Option To DISABLE Viewing Comment Votes?Submitted by sumpm1 on Thu, 04/04/2013 - 20:06
The comment rating system:
You know arrows next to each comment, that you can "vote up" or "vote down."
I recently found myself getting HUNG UP on the ratings of my comments. If they were "voted down" and not replied to; I would get pissed and was annoyed...
If my comments were "voted up," I would pat myself on the back...
I know it is not correct for me to get caught up on such stupid things as COMMENT RATINGS, but it is happening, and I would like to remove the distraction. So here is my request to the moderators:
I know that it would probably be alot of work to make this change... But could we discuss these options for the user:
Option 1: (Default and current option) When the user logs in, the user can see the ratings next to the comments and the user may "vote" on all comments.
Option 2: (Hide MY RATINGS FROM MYSELF haha) When the user logs in, the user is still able to vote on all comments, but the user is UNABLE to see the ratings next to his OWN comments.
Option 3: (Hide ALL RATINGS from the user) when the user logs in, the user cannot see ratings and cannot vote on comments. By choosing this option, the user is choosing NOT TO USE the comment rating system at all.
Again, I know it would be alot of work to implement, and perhaps a silly request. But I love the DP, I like posting here, and I like having options.
I also realize this post will be severely "down voted" haha.
