I respect your equally valid opinion.

Heh.  I thought it was hilarious that Philip Rivers came up first on my google image search for "taking yourself too seriously."

Caste system!!!  This is hilarious.  I hope they don't fix it beercheer.gif

I find it ironic that there is visible feedback on a thread about visible feedback.

Still not sure how I feel about it. Like Segbrown, I frequently browse Epic for both useful information and insights as well as the entertainment. There's also the aspect of having met a number of the cast of characters. It's kind of like a home on the interwebz (do people still use that term?)

I have found that someone will make a post, maybe somewhat brief, then someone else will post basically the same thing, with more detail and maybe more thought out. Depending on whom that post comes from, their post will get quoted or replied to more than the first similar post. i guess we all have favorites; some people get paid attention to a little more.

no big deal; I think if someone has more time to craft a well thought out post, or more cleverly worded, all power to them. At this point, like Sibhusky I'm using the mobile version more, so I have no idea what someone's feedback (or even my own) looks like.

That is absolutely hilarious, you are right. But I am replying to you via "reply" so that you don't get any extra points for Rivers. That would be wrong.

Fair enough SegBrown.  Based on your location I'll try something slightly different...

Has anyone else realized the rest of the threads are fairly quiet as we keep posting here?

   That means more feedback for us! biggrin.gif

Easy solution to the aforementioned problem: If there is a good post, thumb it up. I think making this publicly view-able makes the community more aware of it and over time more people will use it and that will make it meaningful. 

 

Also while reputation isn't the greatest system due to the "popularity contest" potential it is still better than the current system. If a new user comes on they tend to gravitate toward post count as a judge of reputation. I have a fairly substantial number of posts; I am not exactly an expert on skiing though. I have many more posts than much more knowledgeable posters, but I seem to have much less reputation than many of the more knowledgeable members. It's anecdotal, and looking at some numbers obviously not perfect, but I don't think it is any worse of a system for helping people judge reputation than the current way of post count. And like Phil said, making it publicly view-able has other reasons to be revealed as soon as the back-end work is complete.

Suggestion: I believe there is a limit to how many thumbs up you can give in a day.  It would be nice to know how many bullets are left in my gun as I'm throwing thumbs up around.  I'd probably also try to use them up by the end of the day just for the fun of it, if I knew how many I had left.

 

One way to implement this would be a little message after you give someone a thumbs, something like "3 more remaining until 12am PDT"

Perhaps we need to add a button that will do "thumb and reply" in a single operation.  A lot of times, people don't do both.  That leads to the bias many have observed toward short humorous posts.

The limit is 10 (maybe 20? we upped it to 20 but a software update reset it to 10, not sure if it ever got set back to 20) thumbs up in a 24 hour period. There is not easy system in place to tell you automatically, but if you click the # and look at the reputation given tab its easy enough to figure out.

Wise and well-intended administrators, is your reason for making this number visible to help first-time users decide whose advice is more worthy when contradictory information is flying?

 

If so, please remember that newcomers are overloaded with information.  They resurrect years-old posts because they miss the dates, pay attention to ski reviews as if a ski performs the same for everyone despite differences in weight and skill, and have no idea what many of the technical terms mean.  Becoming comfortable here is a process that takes time.  It can be done by people who want to participate, and that's fine, and they do.  The one time visitors get what they want and leave.  

 

Is your focus exclusively on the first-time user, to make their first encounter better?  So they will get the impression they have been well-served?   You think this little number is going to catch their attention and guide them as they work to get their questions answered?  

 

What about the users who have been here for 2-3-4 years and have been active... do you think this number is going to make them more comfortable and happy, or less?  Honestly, I just don't get why you think this number helps anybody.  It only creates the false illusion of valid evaluation of people's worth.  

 

It stinks.

It would be even better if we got roll over "likes".

    In all seriousness, I understand some of the concern. For instance, I see much more value in Jamt's ski instruction and coaching posts than that of my own--and yet I have a higher feedback rating...he should have more, IMHO.

Isn't it great how there's a 'net meme for most common issues?

See above, but if you feel that way, be sure to give feedback. That will help resolve inconsistencies.

No, that has very little to do with it. Like Phil said, stay tuned.

Hey good morning, it's the class clown checking in here.

 

Here are a couple of deep thoughts biggrin.gif

 

zenny that's a valid concern maybe we could have cap and trade system of sorts where if you felt you received undue credit you could trade it to someone you feel is more deserving. 

From looking at some random feedback it looks like 99% of it is positive.

I would like to suggest a category called backfeed so we can give thumbs down as well as up.

 

 

I didn't believe for a minute that The They were doing this just because They thought we were finally adult enough to handle Visible Feedback. 

I am living proof (actually I am not Living Proof, his name is Mike) that we are not.

The real reason, here it is v v v v v v v v, the suspense is killing me.

HOLY REP WHORE THREADS BATMAM!!  There are more icon14.gifs in this thread than the rest of the forums combined.  FWIW, I believe the scores you get for each icon14.gif are determined by the total rep of the person issuing the icon14.gif.   I can haz big rep powerspit.gif

 

When do we get our rep recognition badges?  I prefer the green circles, blue squares, and black diamonds as symbols of status in our caste system.

Hey, if we've going to do this, put it on the mobile screen. It's a significant part of your traffic now.

post #85 of 269

Is Visible Feedback anything like Movement Analysis?, & if so can we just call it VF? 

Is VF positive, negative or something completely different? 

Can you hear & feel it, or is it only something you can see? 

If it is only something that you can see, then I will have to go with the blue boots.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Thanks (in advance),

That is because you have found the way to become "one" with epic. tongue.gif

 

Couldn't let that one slip by.

 

More than likely it is becaue Jamt's posts tend to be fairly techinical and many (myself included) might not know whether they agree or not with what he wrote; yet.

^^^ ken, i cant give positive feedback for your post with this crummy phone (ill hit thumbs up later wink.gif )

SibHusky & Zentune, 

 

What mobile devises are you using and are you using the mobile version from the bottom of this page or Tapatalk? I switched to the mobile version of the regular site from the bottom of these pages and I have access to the mobile page and can leave feedback.
