Forum ratings are back, but not as you knew them.
After a brief hiatus
while we found the right sized hammer, forum ratings have been turned back on. Having
them off was an educational experience, and I'd like to say publicly to Nish that
you were right and I was wrong.
I have always maintained that one should
have the right, and the mechanism, to state how one feels about a subject without
fear of retribution, so we always had upvotes and downvotes. Our community forums
are for opinions, though, and opinions aren't right or wrong: they are just your
opinions. So, we removed the ability to downvote in our community forums while keeping
the ability to give a quick thumbs up. If you do disagree with an opinion then the
solution is obviously to state your own. Courteously!
We've also been working on adding email subscriptions to our forums. If you've
ever wanted to follow all the conversations on a given forum then here's your chance.
Starting this week more "subscribe" links will appear on forums (the first is on
the lounge). The community
in your inbox. Just watch that spam filter.
As a final teaser, if you've been around for a while and have accrued a good
reputation score then keep your eyes peeled. There's a new service coming and you
may be one of the first few who gets a free VIP pass.
PS. Thinking of moving from .NET to iOS? Our own Josh Smith has just completed
his book. Check it out.
