Suggestions For New Ways to Respond to Posts

Yes, I am bored.  Sue me.

At the moment, we have a couple of options to respond to posts by members here.  We can click on:

Flag-Spam
Flag-Abuse
Flag-Troll
Flag-Report
Off Topic
Disagree
Agree
Like

These are pretty much standard, boilerplate Vanilla choices.  They're clearly inadequate.  I think we need some different options.  Ones that are more suitable to this forum and the unique set of denizens occupying this slice of the internet.  Surely Vanilla can provide custom buttons, right folks?  Right?

Here's my suggestion for what these should be replaced by, ordered from negative to positive:

Flag-F You
Flag-Nola Is Drunk 
Flag-Wake Up Buffalo
Mickey's Wings Had Less Char
WTF
Thoughts and Prayers
Just No
Damn Son
Drool!  
Slap Yo Momma Good

    Nola's flag button would get a good work out on here. Although, he has been pretty quiet lately. He must be spending a lot of time in his weed hut.

    How about a "John pats herself on the back under pretense of humility" button.
    Or a “Troll Accounts are For Cowards” button?

    Completely agree.  I think it’s the spelling that confuses people sometimes.
    I do not have any broken or spare parts for any size egg.

    I am so jaded. I feel like you are answering yourself. But that’s just silly.

    Please!  That would add major entertainment !

    Be careful when following the masses. Sometimes the M is silent.

    Ha!  I’m pretty sure I know who old Wes is here and why he has such a hard on for me.  It’s not all that entertaining.

    There many good ideas here, plus some other worthy ones in different threads.  Be a shame to leave some of them out.
    Why not a flag with a "free form" field?  8 or 10 or so characters you populate?

    Right.  Folks with the character to comment don't use flags much, I would think.  This idea is help those who lack such character.  They can be more descriptive and still be in the shadows.
    I got a Troll flag today for commenting that defeating University of Nebr. FB or BB teams is not much to write home about.  Baffles me why that happened.

    The one I never understand is the disagree for one’s personal experiences or opinions. 

    “I never much cared for pesto pizza.”
    *disagree*

    Much different than the more objective assessment of  “pesto pizza is horrible.” This, I can understand a basis for disagreeing with. 
  • dbCooperdbCooper Posts: 1,044

    OK, you just shot down the rational for my brilliant idea.  No more thinking, going back to drinking.

    One more might be appropriate PUI (posting under the influence) especially on Friday's...just so I know to delete them immediately! (always watching)
    If you guys could make it so that button could be clicked more than once... that would be great.

    Being pedantic, you can click it many times.  Flag on, Flag off.  Mr. Myagi style.
    If it is worth doing, it is worth overdoing.
