Maybe we need a button 'dislike'

周阳 I'm New Here Dec 07, 2020

When someone write an article that we dislike, we can't do anything. So a button named 'dislike' may help us.


Hi @周阳 

welcome to this wonderful community.

Why would you want to give someone a dislike? This is a really strong and imho a hard way to judge on other people. Just don't leave a like or write a constructive comment to help them improve.

One of the Community board's (unanimous) agreements was that we should not allow "dislike" or "downvote".  In previous incarnations of Community (Answers etc), they were heavily abused, and in the few cases where they were of genuine intent, not actually a lot of use.

We saw abuse such as:

  • Spammers using it to increase their reputation
  • People from a solution provider trying to harm the reputation of the vendors they were competing with
  • People bullying or trying to discredit others by downvoting their posts en-masse
  • People being discouraged from giving correct answers and useful information or guidance because they were downvoted because voters don't like being told they're wrong, or don't like the way something works

In fact, we could not identify any positive use for denigrating people's contributions. 

A downvote tells us nothing, disabling them means people have to do it manually, by saying "I don't like this" and hence opening a conversation about why!  (Hopefully a constructive one)

I'd ask why you want to dislike something.  What is it you don't like?  What could be improved?

Thanks @Nic Brough _Adaptavist_ - very wise words!

Agree with @Nic Brough _Adaptavist_ 

@周阳 @ If you need to implement the voting function in Confluence, you can try to use the following plugins.

Survey and Vote Macros

Multivote&Enterprise Survey (Confluence)
