Because you're not a moderator, apparently.Why this thread is still unlocked lol?
This is the reason, rest is just sugar coating.With this thread locked, they'd likely just end up opening a new thread instead.

Edit: On a second thought, this topic served well as a place to mock and ridicule people who wanted a feature which probably most Xenforo based forums already using without overreacting on it. Yeah, that could be another good reason.
TW forums already is a hub of scum and villainy. But there are ones that are even bigger, and they haven't turned into popularity contests because of a like system, nor has the world ended.Why would you want TW to become a hub of scum and villainy? I say no to that. Also say no to Headlice or whoever he is.
That's a strawman. They were bigger hubs of scum and villainy before the like button.You have already said so. Other forums are bigger hubs of scum and villainy. Your own words, Now beat it.
That's not how the system works on Xenforo, so your concern is unfounded.I'm less concerned about popular posts/people getting disproportionate attention than I am about unpopular users getting routinely suppressed. Right now the only way to act against someone's opinion is to post your own--with likes/dislikes, you can put someone down systematically without ever putting yourself in the spotlight. We already have a problem with a handful of users being routinely targeted, though it's usually just toeing the line. Making it easier for people to keep them down is not in their interest or in the interest of moderation staff.
I'm aware that's the default, but it was not the only system being considered. Reference the first page of this topic again to find a post by Delinard where he commented on this.That's not how the system works on Xenforo, so your concern is unfounded.
The system is not a like/dislike system like reddit. It's simply a "like" system. As in, at the bottom of a post it simply says "x user liked this post". Nobody is put down, nothing is suppressed.
Agreed.aren't +1 and -1 posts against the rules anyways? It's not like we need a solution to replace them, but rather a way to prevent them from existing. +1 and -1 have the same effect as thumbs up and thumbs down and thus they should be more strictly prohibited.
