Kudos Ability Disabled

Argo Friends,

I wanted to bring something to everyone's attention. The admin team has discovered a technical issue that is allowing the use of down-voting for forum posts. Yeah, I didn't know what it was either. It's like negative kudos.

Anyway, the admin team felt that the use of down-voting doesn't really support the positive atmosphere we have here in TF Argo. We are all for the use of kudos, but will not allow the use of down-voting on our site. That is why when our forums were granted the use of kudos last fall, we disabled down-voting.

Unfortunately, there is a software bug that currently allows folks to bypass the forum setting, and use the down-vote feature. In order to preserve the environment that we feel best suits our community, we have disabled the kudos function for the mean time.

Sorry for the issue. Please contact Dae or Kat if you have any questions.

Admin Team

Can't we just employ an honour system where we shame and embarrass anyone who downvotes?
Everyone downvote the Kudos is disabled thread!

Oh wait. :p

..Who was downvoting? Seems kind of dickish.
Its a shame enjin doesn't seem to understand how to really disable functionality -- I'm looking at you, server side validation!

I will look at this as a positive. I will have to tell people personally that I like their posts.

Dunno who did it, to be honest. It might even have been an accidental click for all we know? But that fact that it can happen seemed like a good enough reason to bring them down until we got it sorted out. We have our four smarted people working on it right now!
Spoiler: -_-_-_-_-Show

I couldn't resist... I just couldn't!
Wants to give kudos to that post...but... :sick:
Well, good news Zel, Kudos are going back up! Our expert magicians have figured out what was wrong and have done things with pixie dust. Honestly, I don't know what she was saying, I just smiled and nodded a lot.

Anyway, Kudos will be turned back on shortly here. We are leaving the negative kudos disabled because they are stupid, and I am asking everyone to do the right thing with kudos. They are a way to say "cool, I like this" or "nice voucher, thanks!" They should not be used to convey passive aggressive behavior.

If you have no idea what I am talking about, then you're not doing it! Thanks folks and enjoy the kudos-ing again!
