Do you want the "reactions" feature enabled?

Okay, esteemed Members, I'm moving this topic temporarily to Member Poetry, since no one visits the Clubs forums/topics. How do you feel about this feature, yes or no. Don't care is not an option. 🙃

  1. 1. Do you want to see the "reactions" feature enabled?

    • Yes, I see no harm in it, and it could even be beneficial by encouraging more involvement.
    • No, this isn't social media. It's unprofessional. This is a writing forum, and we're here to write, not to click "LIKE."

This feature has been available for a while, and I have been tempted to activate it on occasion. Essentially, reactions would be available at the bottom of each post and look something like this:

You click the one you choose, if you so desire. The reactions accumulate at the bottom of the respective posts in a collapsed form, and you can click on the icon(s) to see who reacted how. It's somehow tied in with a "reputation" feature, but I don't think I have to enable that. In any case, it's no big deal.

I usually vote first whenever I create a poll, but I still don't know how I feel about this one. Personally, I'm leaning towards "no." I've always seen PMO as a serious writing forum, and it would seem that participants should be encouraged to write, not just click "like." On the other hand, participants who are inclined to write will probably continue to do so anyway, and perhaps those who are lazier would be inclined to participate more if given this commonplace feature.

I'm not sure what I'll do about activating this feature. No matter what, I want this site to remain elegant and professional. If I decide to activate this and determine in the future that this feature degrades the site, I'll deactivate it. I'm looking for member input in the form of votes and/or comments.

It's time to exercise your franshise and vote. I'm not even registered to vote in elections, but I know that it's presented like it's some sacred duty by the American mainstream media. ⚠️:rolleyes:

I voted yes a long time ago.  Sometimes I just can't take the time to respond to a poem or a response but would love to let the writer know I read and reacted.  I promise using the like or love or sad icon will not diminish my response in real words, it will just be an interim gesture to connect.   If you activate it and after a trial period find the icons do eliminate or reduce the interaction and comments then just take it off.

I know you voted yes a long time ago, but now it's a tie. :laugh: I'm still so on the fence about this but leaning, as ever, toward no. I think it's because social media's broadcast-style messaging irritates me. I'll leave the poll up for now and continue to check the pulse. ☢️
