WTF does that even mean?
Undoubtedly you are familiar with the ability on various social platforms to ‘like’ a comment or a post. Well, now you can do just that on our forum. It’s not revolutionary but it means you can now express your appreciation of another forum user’s genius opinion by giving them a Singletrack Credit. It’s a very simple additional function but we are looking forward to seeing how you use it. We think it looks like a Singletrack gold coin or something. Maybe we will let you ‘spend’ them in the future. Who knows.
A few things to note
Rating systems on various platforms have been a source of abuse and there are many examples of how they have been used to harass and even bully individuals. It sounds a bit OTT but this is why currently you can only give a positive rating to a post. You can’t give a negative rating although you can change your mind and remove your credit at any time. That’s not say we won’t at some point enable a down rating but we are going to see how it is used first.
This is a simple start and we will be building more functions in to this system in the future, such as filtering options, total scores etc. We may even let you spend the credits you have earned.
