Pq's sweet Pq's
I have seen alot of pq's since being in the locker room, but one tonight just amazed me, it was in ljheaths turbulence poll. And huskerfan was the recipient on this pq. So I think that since the Q is changing they should make the givers of the Pq's known! I mean if you give them give them proudly, stand by it put your avator next to it! But thats just me, I do not give them I either ignore the comment or say something, what do you guys think ? Should this be another change? (if this poll has already been done I apologize)

I don't want the respect thingy,  I think we should keep the smart and funny  and do away with bold and pq.  I will not be using the respect thing because what does respect have to do with locker  room comments?  Nothing.  Do i give a respect because they made me fall out of my chair laughing?   Or because  i thought something was smart?  That is silly.

The PQ will be a thing of the past in a few days. They are getting rid of the Funny,Smart,Bold and everyone's favorite the PQ for something called respect, which is something that is foreign to me...lol

If what Woody said is true then I guess it doesn't matter.  However, if I give a PQ I have no problem admitting it and stating why I did it!
Yes it should be changed.  
#3 | 1756 days ago

The pq is meant to close posts, so the community can sort of police itself.

I think a lot of people us the button to express their opinion, which is especially helpful if it's anonymous.  But it's not, and it's easy to figure out who did it, if you really want to.  I don't care, and the post you're talking about I could pretty much guess who did it without sorting out the other 10 or so accolades.

Like woody said, it'll be a thing of the past in a week or so...

I think the label "Poor quality" is a little bit hard, because sometimes u just don´t like what it's posted but it doesn't mean that is a poor or bad  comment, I can´t remember who suggested on previous polls that maybe a "Disagree" or "Didn't like" button would be better and the giver should be shown as another accolade. My humble opinion
#5 | 1756 days ago

6. What is Respect?
Respect is Season Two’s version of Thumbs Up. If other fans think your contribution is high quality, they can give you respect. Each fan is limited to giving out 10 respect per day (2 to one user) to ensure that respect only goes to the very best contributions that day. Respect you receive for your team contributions count towards your team rankings.
The little person who pushs that little Poor will have to find a new way to disagree weeeeeeeee!

You can find out who pq'd a comment as I suggested in a poll I made the other week.

I'm disappointed by the limited amount of thumbs up that can be given out now. This will greatly reduce everybody's accolades received. I'm used to handing out hundreds of accolades a day, so this will take some getting used to.

Yeah that's going to be the worst part of season 2 I think. I love being able to tell if I made someone laugh through one of my smart ass comments. And I love notifying someone else if they made me laugh. I got to have more than 10 to give out in a day!!!

I'm disappointed too.  I can't make it with just 10.  No way will that work.  Heck we need at least thumbs up and down and all we want.

#17 | 1756 days ago

 I rarely give Poor quality to any one, but when I give, I am responsible for that, and as to "respect" we all respect each other, in locker room or else where, aberrations are exceptions not rule.
   Q administration is thinking and implementing a "change'    let us see it , feel it, then decide about the change.! After all it is democratic rule that governs the market.

I thought the PQ was valuable when used properly because there are alot of intolerant comments made by some people that should be hidden if not deleted.

And there were times that they were good too, like when someone is posting curse words then the Q'ers can hide the comment and the mods, when they get there, can delete it.

Unfortunately, some people use them for crusades and when they disagree with facts that disprove their arguments.
no it should be left alone

the only thing I don't like about PQs, is that after 4, your comment dissapears.  Maybe we should change that.  If you see so many PQs, then you can skip that comment.  As for getting PQs, I don't want to know who gives them.  It might piss me off.

 PQ's will be gone, because there have been many complaints about they were abused and not used the way they were intended.  i made polls concerning the anonymity of them when they first came out, because then you couldn't see who was giving them to you.  That only happened within the last 6 months with one of the site changes that it occured.

The reason for limiting the number of thumbs to 10 is to try to make people think about giving them out for quality, instead of just giving them to everyone so everyone is getting them.  Make people provide quality content to the site, just not content to the site.  The best example that I can come up with is TOTD and DABS.  I'm sure many of you give each of those poll a thumb, as have I on occassion.  But it is an everyday poll, and I know what it is, so I will probably stop thumbing that one, and save it for original content, like jess's faniq jukebox poll or someone who asks for opinions like Leslie's turbulence poll.

As for the respect thing, I don't know how that works yet.

I understand that site is changing, that has been announced. Just because you remove the Poor does not mean you will be not getting complaints from someone saying they are abusing the COC or some other part of the site. The person that  gives out one of those little orange things gives them more of a thrill, then hurting someone.
I do however think that this is a large site and that I do find more then 10 comments a day that I would respect and die laughing at.
Just because of the abuse of someone who is not brave enough to debate their beliefs instead of abuse that button limits everyone and that is really a shame. I hope the childish behavior is stopped by changes on the site. But, I really believe the people that abused these buttons will find another reason to abuse the people they disagree with. You can please some of the people all of the time and all of the people some of the time. But you can not please all of the people all of the time.

 there will not be any poor quality to abuse.  there will also be no funny, smarts or bold.  just assume there is a generic thumb.  if someone disagrees a with you, they will either have to debate you with it, or keep it to themselves.  they will not be able to hide behind their computer screen.

I agree ... I mean, taking away the "smart", "funny", and "bold" is kinda rough.  But limiting each person to 10 per day is going to be hell!  I know I'm gonna use my 10th for the day then read something completely awesome and not be able to give it "respect".  Not cool. 
#35 | 1756 days ago

I usually just don't read something I think is of poor quality.  If it's abusive and against the C.O.C. report it.  And if someone just plain makes you mad...go to their profile and "smack" em!

I agree, about the limit, I mean take away the PQ, and the bold but I think they should have left the smart or funny, there are times that I really like what people say and to put a limit on it per day is really not a great idea. I know they are doing what they think is right and what they think is good for the Q, it just kind of reminds me of a comment my boss made at a staff meeting when management comes up with their so called bright ideaswe were told that they were doing it for the members and the credit union and if we did not like it then theirs the door.. so I guess we have to pick and choose which of our fellow Q family  comments we want to pick

I see good and bad here. The PQ button was too often used just because someone disagreed with what you said, especially on political polls. Just because you disagree with someone's opinion doesn't mean that opinion was poor quality. If someone posted something truly inappropriate or abusive then that should be reported directly to a Mod. We shouldn't rely on PQ'ing it out. Frankly, if I see "This comment has been removed due to poor quality" I always click on "Show Anyway"... it's like watching a train wreck, you know? I'm curious to see just how "bad" it was.

The respect thing is going to take getting used to. I understand the rationale, though. Accolades as they are now is often just a popularity. We all know how a dear departed member of the Locker Room, who I need not name, would get dozens of thumbs up for just a one-word comment. To his credit, he gave them out generously as well. But the fact remains that certain individuals get thumbs up on practically every comment they make, because they're well-known, whereas newer members can often write eloquent comments that get zero accolades, which doesn't encourage them to submit more quality comments. I think it's not a bad thing that you might have to make a choice between "respecting" a person who writes a thoughtful paragraph versus, say, a comment that's simply "Boobies." (Sorry Bart ) But 10 a day is not enough... 100 maybe. With rollover.

Now theres a nice compramise. Because 10 is not enough and I do understand the thinking behind it, but some polls are silly polls where boobies is funny(sorry Bart) but the polls that make you think well then there will be more than 10 right there. And I have never said theres a newbie so I will ignore thier comment. As a matter of fact I think Mr. Rogers is a perfect example to the fact that that just doesn't happen. All this leveling the playing field for new people may be a little excessive.
