Short, concise description of the idea
Automatically add a "Rate The Suggestion" section on suggestion submissions.
Full description of the idea
As mentioned in this post by aveleh, it could be valuable to add a "Rate The Suggestion" footer at the bottom of the suggestion submission form. The footer will not be made visible during the submission process. Rather, it will appear once the suggestion has been approved.
An example for the rating footer could be the following:
- Implementing this would make my LiveJournal experience more enjoyable.
- Implementing a modified version of this would make my LiveJournal experience more enjoyable.
- Implementing this would not affect my LiveJournal experience.
- Implementing this would make my LiveJournal experience less enjoyable.
The above rating poll would be displayed as radio buttons, allowing one vote to be cast. LiveJournal members can input their rating of the suggestion and then further discuss with other LiveJournal users in the comments.An ordered list of benefits
- Eliminate the "+1" comments by moving the "vote" to a poll and making the comments area a place for discussion.
- Easy visual to see LiveJournal user needs and preferences.
- For those who would rather not get involved in commenting, they can still cast a "vote" for the suggestion.
- As with all polls, results can be skewed / made to look favorable one way.
- Time and effort in re-coding the form.
- As noted in the comments, Basic users may be prevented from posting polls.
- Also noted in comments is that effort should probably be spent on other areas, not on a form.
