Why would people vote no to this

Is sick of two faced people


“Do you want this good thing?”
“No thanks”

Do you want to be able to change your status without asking a mod?

Good heavens, no.


It’s an addition not an alteration therefore enable it

Yeah but it’ll be a global thing we’ll see. If it’s benefitting football discourse I’m now against it.

It’s an emoji next to the username, it’s hardly altering the look of the site. Does anyone voting no have an actual reason? (I realise people may just like voting in polls, just wondering if there’s any decent reason that I haven’t thought of that overrides the reasons other people would find it useful)


If people had their way we’d probably still all be using broken old DiS, threadsmashes and all sorts

Emoji and text, but I was just making a classic joke comment about how much us non-football fans find football boring.

Maybe take your frustration out on someone who’s actually voted against in the poll?

I voted no, just because the other change to the Suggested Topics had the unintended consequence of making it no longer be useful. So, more just no point making a change that isn’t that important that potentially could cause an issue, although it does sound unlikely here.

The only issue I can forsee is if people put pass-agg comments regarding other members in there or whatever. Don’t really think it’s very likely though.

I guess if it adds another line under the user details that might impact the UX

Sorry, not meant for you to feel targeted, and I’m not particularly frustrated. Just feels like no and yes votes shouldn’t be given equal weight in the poll if yes voters are giving some reasons too. Minor reasons, yes, but it’s a minor change being proposed – this is a general point not aimed at you fwiw.

And I think (although not 100% sure) that the text alongside the emoji only appears if that is hovered over/selected in some way.

Maybe we could give it a go and turn it off again if it causes problems?

Can’t wait to try out



This feels like a sensible compromise. Do we maybe try it for a week and see if goes to shit we revoke it either quickly or after a week?

Tick the box! Tick the box!

Think it’s worth asking across social and music - not everyone will see this thread tucked away in Site Feedback :slight_smile:

What’s happening with this then I’m on tenterhooks here

So it’s the little bit that mods can currently edit for you, but we’ll now be able to edit it ourselves?

Yeah I can’t understand how that would cause any issues at all
