Cringe and shit aren't the same thing. Close, but not the same.
Tryhard unfunny politically-correct cringe isn't the same as NPC opinion or general unfunny shit. They have entire subreddits dedicated to posting facepalm-inducing forced "memes" and they just keep going day after day. That's reddit cringe for you.

This is a more precise rating to be used on the Viktor and the Polack newfag GD brigade.

Bros, we need a BASED button. Think about it, there are several dual buttons (Agree - Disagree; Yes - No; Incline - Decline) and I believe that giving CRINGE it's own counterpart would be beneficial to this fine forum.

In my honest and informed opinion the icons that would best serve this function are the following:

OR

They are obviously not down to size, I'll leave that to the professionals.

admins should make koala available for everyone, it's a highly useful quality of life button unjustly locked behind a paywall.

Those I find myself needing the most, but there are buttons still un-implemented that would greatly improve the Codex experience. I've collected some of them in my button poll thread.

Holy shit, did the expanded pack of buttons become available to all newhomos? They'll probably be taken away soon so use them quickly!

SINCE NOBODY ASKED, PLEASE FIND BELOW THE 2022 COMPLETE REVIEW OF BUTTONS.

THE 2022 COMPLETE REVIEW OF BUTTONS :
And when I say complete, I sure mean superficial. But my time, will and public subventions did not allow me for more. With all sociology papers, the author tries to prove a point by talking a lot, putting his prey to sleep before drawing the conclusion he wants. Here I'll be honest with you dear reader and go straight to the point : there are too many negative ratings.
Also I know there are more buttons than the set I've used, but as said before my resources and political connections are limited and I don't have access to all of them, so deal with it.

PROOOF :

Fully positive buttons, used to agree, thank or compliment the post or the poster talent, appeal or fresh breath :

buttons yeah.png

I count 23 of them.

Fully negative buttons, that could be easily weaponized for ad hominem attacks. Not saying anyone does. But could be. Anyway :

buttons nay.png

I count 20 of them.

Well now we're coming to the exciting part : realizing I was wrong.
SO MY CONCLUSION IS NOW THAT THIS POST MAY BE USELESS, BUT SINCE I WASTED SOME SOLID TIME COLORING THAT SHIT THERE IS NO REASON I CAN'T WASTE YOURS.
CHEERS.

Buttons discussion.
I use the "creative" and "fabulous optimistic" buttons most often than not as negative. "Sheeple", "Acknowledge this User's agenda" and "WTF am I reading" as well, among others. It depends on the context, it can be attributed to the poster or the content of the post.

Agreed, but in the same way "slam dunk", "salute" or "balanced" can be used positively. "Facepalm" is also often used to describe content so maybe it was unfair to count it as negative, oh well. I was under the impression there were too many ways to be unpleasant to each other, turns out it is not the case.

It proves that the codex is a place of love and acceptance.
Well we're doing quite well on acceptance, as for love... It's not that bad when you look away from the heavy background noise from the usual "I want attention" crowd.

There's a bigger problem, these are the F2P buttons with the P2W ones crossed out:

Fix that first, then we'll talk about ratios.

ADDENDUM TO THE 2022 COMPLETE REVIEW OF BUTTONS.

It has come to my attention that some of my esteemed colleagues had disagreements with my perfect methodology. I would have usually dismissed them based on the fact that I'm always right, however the conclusion I drew in the 2022 COMPLETE REVIEW OF BUTTONS above shows that I am not. Talk about self-sabotage. This is why I decided to amend the review, taking into account their august opinions.

ADDENDUM 1

As per HeroMarine remark, "slam dunk" has been added to the positive ratings, while to maintain balance "sheeple" has been added to the negative ones. My apologies to our ovine userbase.

ADDENDUM 2

As per Caim remark, rating count has been split between F2P and P2W.

AMENDED RESULTS OF THE 2022 COMPLETE REVIEW OF BUTTONS

Positive F2P buttons : 13 (if I may allow myself to disagree with my esteemed colleague count)
Negative F2P buttons : 10

Added P2W positivity : 11
Added P2W negativity : 11

The conclusion is therefore straightforward : the F2P playerbase has more possibilities to express its gratitude in belonging to our great community of enlighten spirits than to be a sarcastic little shit toward the other retards. HOWEVER, when paying for the DLC, an equal quantity in both positivity and negativity is added to its rating pool, dramatically changing the positivity on negativity ratio from 1.3 to 1.1, a serious drop of almost 13%, that becomes 15% when I disregard some fractional part and 27% when I put the number I want in hope nobody else double-checks. It is indeed outrageous. Is that a true reward for those who spend their hard-earned money to keep the boat afloat ? If this how the pillars of a community should be thanked ?

IN CONCLUSION we need more positive ratings for paying users.
