Facepalm react

Recommended Posts

 . . . a thought occurs.

 

What if Facepalm added Rep?

 

I certainly can't speak for everyone, but I can see that making it a less enticing prospect for bullying.

I dunno. Rep is its own stigma. I noticed recently I had "won the day" 3 times. When I went back to see what merited "winning", I thought it would be for one of my guides or for discovering a bug fix. Nope. One day happened to be a slow day that I made some joke that might've gotten 7 likes, the other two were from getting into an argument over a powerset capability. If dumb jokes and flame wars are what earns rep, I'd rather live anonymously answering questions and problem solving. 

 

But I digress. To your point, I'd hate to see the rep-seekers out there try to chase rep by purposely posting nonsense just for the "face-palm" reaction. Incentivizing people to be vile, obnoxious, or what have you...I dont think that's healthy for the forums.

Hmm, so a pendulum swing in the other direction is your prediction?

Although, given how easy it is to give/get Rep right now, and the general lack of interest in it . . . I'm starting to think it's more likely that +Rep_Facepalm wouldn't have much of an impact in either direction.

My prediction is if you implement a face palm reaction (without rep), it will result in it being used as a means to demean others on the forum (bad). If you implement a face palm reaction (with rep), it will still result in it being used as a means to demean others on the forum (bad), but will also figuratively feed the trolls on the forum that want to stir up flame wars (also bad) and relish in chasing "notoriety" for it.

Would it actually make for a better forum environment?

It also seems linked to the forum reputation system.

I'm not sure a facepalm should add to your reputation?

To be maximally clarifying the Thanks, HaHa and Like reactions add +1 to forum reputation.

The Confused ans Sad reactions add +0 to forum reputation.

Allowing a Facepalm reaction to also add +0 to forum reputation would be in keeping with the Confused and Sad reactions.

 

Note that there is no -1 to forum reputation option.

Forum reputation is a one way ratchet.  The Confused and Sad reactions still get recorded, they just don't "move the needle" at all on forum reputations.

I'm not a fan of a Facepalm reaction for the reasons already outlined by others so well.  It's only purpose would be mock others opinions, and we don't need more tools to do that in the forums.
