    Hi, I see that already we have a like button for comments but I was wondering if we could have an unlike button and yes I know this might be considered negative, but there are some posts here in this site htat realy deserve to be unliked, maybe priotirize it as in for it to not to be abused, you can only give 'x' amount of unlikes a day or week. Just a suggestion, feel free to discuss.

    Oh and while we're at it why isn't there an edit button on threads? I understand not being able to edit replies but thread should be able to be updated accordingly unless of course somebody locks them, I dont want to post 10 replies for a Q and A thread when it could just be edited (just an example). Thank you again.
    Also completely unrelated, and im not trying to be annoying here, im still muted, just saying, please dont misinterpret my intentions.

    We used to have one but people abused it, so now it's only for staff.

    I like this suggestion, but we use forum software that may or may not be able to be edited to include a dislike button. I don't know that it's possible, but it's pretty unlikely.

    The usual minimum is being able to edit until another post is made in the thread or in some short time window. This forum is unusual in not allowing edits. I would personally prefer if some minor editing like this were allowed, but it doesn't keep me up at night.

    An unlike button isn't really necessary, and of course you'll get those annoying trolls who will unlike everyone's posts just because they can.
    And editing is only for staff so it isn't abused, as people could change what they say at any point, and in fights over forums they could alter what they say "I never said that ect" and I believe what you're suggesting now has been suggested before but was denied for the reasons said above, if you can think of ways to counter-act those situations happening, there's a chance it'll be accepted this time.

    What if you could see what the person had before it was edited, like there was a button that said edited and it showed you what the original post was.

    I do like the idea of an edit button accessible from anyone, not just staff.
    Seems like a good idea. :) .

    If something really needs editing, ask staff. Otherwise just make another post adding what you wanted to say.
    With dislikes, no. It just creates a pool of negativity and hatred.
