Quote from: IgorEliezer on April 20, 2018, 09:43:59 PMIf one has to blame, I proposed removing it because the Helpfulness feature overlapped the Like feature.
Quote from: IgorEliezer on April 20, 2018, 09:43:59 PMTo make everyone happy: @An_dz or Isaac, is it possible to change the string in the Like button to "+1 helpful" and the Unlike to "-1 helpful" or whatever that fits better?
Quote from: jamespetts on April 21, 2018, 05:48:27 PMIs there not some utility in retaining the former distinction between liking a post itself and marking a person's contribution as helpful?
Quote from: jamespetts on April 21, 2018, 05:48:27 PMIn other words, would it not make more sense to record the number of likes on each individual post, but tally only the (separate) helpfulness points (hopefully, the record of the old ones still exist) per person and thus not keep a (public) log of the number of total post likes per person?
Quote from: jamespetts on April 21, 2018, 07:24:14 PMexcept that people might confuse this with the helpfulness score
Quote from: jamespetts on April 21, 2018, 07:24:14 PM[...] one would see a total of the number of helpfulness points in a person's profile, and a total of the number of likes that a particular post has.

Quote from: An_dz on April 24, 2018, 12:38:55 AMI think Igor and Isaac have nothing against it?

Quote from: Leartin on April 24, 2018, 04:52:12 AMAlso, it does not seem like there is much of an arguement for the helpfulness system being better than the likes system, it's more about loss of data. So wouldn't it be best to keep the data without any functionality, perhaps in the thanks-statistic as an additional rider next to "thanks given" and "thanks received" as "helpfulness (legacy)". Short explaination of what the feature once was, that it since got replaced by the thanks-system, and of course the static helpfulness count. No loss of data, but also no overlapping features.
Quote from: jamespetts on April 24, 2018, 09:29:00 AMA count of the number of posts of a person's that have been liked means something different to the count of the number of times that that person has been rated as "helpful". One might "like" a post praising some aspect of Simutrans, but one might rate as "helpful" a bug report (even though one would not like it).
Quote from: Leartin on April 24, 2018, 04:52:12 AMI disagree. There is still the option to keep likes and discard helpfulness, just as it is right now.
Quote from: An_dz on May 03, 2018, 07:31:03 PMI disabled it again, but now the helpfulness points are being summed with the Thanks.
