As you know, a new reactions system was added to replace post ratings when the forum was upgrade. This system changed out some of the old ratings for new ones, though mostly kept the setup intact none the less.

However, as it turns out, there's one interesting feature it has that post ratings didn't:

Namely, a method of adding new ratings. Yep, as this shows, we can add new ratings and decide whether they're positive or negative, as well as edit the existing ones from the admin panel:

And based on that (plus @Crescent-Moon Villager's feedback in the other topic), that got me thinking:

Should we add some new ratings, as well as replace the existing ones with Wario themed counterparts?

Because it's really easy to do so, and it'd make things look more interesting than with the Facebook style ones present now. We'd just need the images in SVG format, and we'd be set.

So yeah, thoughts on the idea? And who would be willing to create some new reaction images to match the forum style?

Don't have any real suggestions but if this is done I hope it's done in a relatively uniform style or else it's gonna set off my OCD

Some suggestions:
  • Optimistic (positive): rainbow
  • Ditch the ¨indifferent¨ rating
  • Change ¨disagree¨ to neutral (it has been this before the update, if I remember correctly)

Some of the Emotes work pretty well for rating stuff IMO
:warioyeah::warioewalt::ShakesHead::GBWario:

As long as we don't just throw in everything because who's gonna rate a post with
:musicbox::mysticlake::annoyedBlock: etc.

Nah, we won't throw in everything.

However, I do feel the art for these should look consistent, so yeah, we may need to have specific images made here.

Why not have a PositiVibes rating icon for a "Motivational" rating? If a post is there to push someone's mood up, a rating like that would be appropriate, right?


We can use the simplified version:

The Optimistic is now a positive rating with a rainbow icon,
Indifferent has been removed,
Disagree is now a neutral rating.

The Dumb rating is back as a negative rating, and the Creative rating is also back but as a positive rating.

If there are any other changes to the current ratings you'd like to see, let us know. As for adding new ones, we need to talk about it first as to whether it makes sense or not.

Sorry for double posting, we got a new test rating, "Greedy", based on this suggestion:

More ideas:

Greedy :)
Creepy :ashleymain:
Funky :jimmy:
Cheerful :monapizza:
Weird :orbulon:

Etc., they don't have to be those exact images.
Let us know if you like it, we can add more or change the icon, or just simply remove it if you don't like it.

EDIT: The character based ratings will be positive, so we can use them in other contexts. This can also be changed.

More like triple posting.
What exactly would a "Greedy" post be since I noticed it's listed as positive? Otherwise, only real complaint is the icon itself.

Well, like I said, it's just a test, and it's a little animated Wario icon, so yeah, I can change it.
Hey, it's positive because "Greed is good!"

Jokes aside, this can be removed at any time, depends if people like it or not.
I edited my post at the same time you replied, it's positive so we can use it just to rate a Wario, for fun.
As for the icon, it's definitely not final, but I used this one temporarily because we have pretty much all characters animated from Touched, which I think are cute looking, and kinda fit the rating. This, obviously can and will most likely be changed. If anyone can create an SVG for ratings like these, that'd be great!

Ah I see. Well in that case it fits the forum.
A bit of picky concern of mine but could we plan this out a bit more instead of just trying whatever we think of on the spot? If I'm gonna be honest I'm a little sore over the ratings being mostly lost and I wouldn't want more of that to happen if like hypothetically you guys introduce a rating and people start using it but then it gets misused or people don't like it or something and then it gets removed and then the ratings get all messed up. I dunno, maybe I'm being too anal about this.

Sorry, I'm just trying. I thought it'd be good to have some sort of test run before just adding all other ratings based on characters. If that really bothers you that much, I'll remove it now and we can add it later once it's finished. I just wanted to see the reception so we don't go through the trouble of making icons for it and having to remove them if no one likes them.

No, the rating itself is fine. Don't worry, I just have a pet peeve of things getting tracked and then having it all get messed up. It's taking me a while to adjust to the ratings getting mostly deleted. Just continue as you please.
