Great to here the fail button has been removed, I'm looking forward to a much friendlier and honest RS. I know I frequently questioned, will be failed for this before posting, and edited accordingly.

I'm surprised how many people support the fail button being removed.. I didn't expect that!

Wow, you really have a hate on for orange7.

I don't mind him at all.

Now apologize and make up. Let's all be friends.


I love you
You love me
We're a happy family
With a great big hug
And a kiss from me to you
Won't you say you love me too?

I love you
You love me
We're best friends
Like friends should be
With a great big hug
And a kiss from me to you
Won't you say you love me too?

Maybe rename it to "thumb down" button or "orange7" or something like that.
Okay, those names suck, but you get my idea.

In my opinion, the fail button isn't really a "pessimistic calling them out on it" button. It's more of a joke and fun button for me. I find it hilarious when everyone jumps on a bandwagon and mass fail a post even if it wasn't fail worthy. Furthermore, we need some kind of downsides to balance all the thanked.

Now that with the fail button gone, ppl will just start calling the poster of a stupid post loser in full cap or something like that. Before it would just simply be a fail.

I'd rather purposely post marginally retarded posts and receive fails than to receive a big LOSER.

/end rant of losing the fun fail button

I think that just by you asking me to rename the button is reason enough to leave it as-is. organge7 has spoken, and we have done the opposite. yay!

I think the whole point of the fail button is to make ppl edit their posts before posting them. Which in your case, the fail button is working.

so why remove something that is doing its job for certain people?

in the end, I'm not in charge.. so w/e.. life goes on.

There is an important distinction between preventing trolls from posting with the intention of getting a rise out of members, and editing posts to exclude a completely valid point to avoid being failed, because an opinion may be unpopular.

The fail button made it so that people who had something to share would be like "Hmmm, I might get failed for this I'd better not post at all" or "I searched everywhere and couldn't find this video so I'll post it up" and it turns out its a repost and everyone jumps on the fail bandwagon.
Agree. I'm glad the button was removed. A lot of people like to jump on the fail bandwagon just because they see other people failing the OP. Many times it's the result of misinterpretation of the OP's story or false assumptions about the OP due to lack of reading comprehension.

I don't see how troll posts will increase as long as people make good use of the report spam button.

We have kept the Thanks button though because people who are helpful should be recognized for it. Thanks for reading!

i would say fail you right now if i could

About time. Too many fails were given out because someone didn't like what someone else was saying and not because the post was actually retarded.

Next up should be the NWS avatars, can't browse RS at work... lol

True, but can we make it easier to turn it off? A button in a more convenient place? Now that kind of button I can appreciate. I love avatars, but not at work. I ID people by their avatars.

You missed the memo. You will get banned, instead. The ultimate fail.
