Whos idea was it to add, snowflake and chromosome to the reactions, then allow these to be used on active reports?

We're all playing an M rated game. If we can't handle a couple of twitch memes, then I feel that the snowflake emote's place is well warranted.

haha that could be so true. just thought it might help negate any bad feelings go back into the game. 

Fair play though.

I agree, I've always thought it was an odd decision to add these. I'm as bad as anyone else and use them a lot, and I understand we are playing an adult game but these emotes do seem to contradict the idea of having civil discussions. There are so many cases where a faction will brigade someone's comment/post and spam the chromosone reaction instead of giving an actual response.

Inb4 people start doing that in this thread

This. Done it myself as well, but it's probably not conducive to a more community friendly feel.

Like/Dislike, Funny, Sad, Angry. All you need really.

Reactions should be simple and straightforward, without the 'meme' which most people don't understand anyway.

+1 Keep it simple.

+1 I used to do it all the time with the pepe emote but then I realized it wasn't productive and was toxic. We should all stay cool to each other.

We are all terrible people here in the gaming community, You would of really figured that out by now. 

Don't be disheartened by some autism fueled emotes on a forum where shitposting is half the battle.

Been gaming for like 22-23 years mate, this is the first time ive ever heard memes associated with gaming in such a way, think its as a Richard Dawkins term, wasnt even used until 2013 ish within the gaming/internet communities.

I've come up with some reports in the past all being dismissed about this issue, at the time I reported someone for some sort of anti-rp which the person got issued with something, him and his friends went through all my posts giving me feelschromosome that lead to my super negative rating on the forum, not because of what I comment, just because a group of angry friends oocly decided to start the harassment. 

Forum rating shouldn't be decided by reactions but some other features like publications (useful ones), activity, etc..

Because it's not restricted to memey posts, is it? It's on people's reports, it's on their suggestions, it's on their regular discussions etc..

If you're stopping people from contributing to discussions or even posting altogether because they worry they aren't gunna be taken seriously, that's shitty. The forum is for those posts, no?

Considering we have a rule regarding "ooc insults" and how we should treat each other with respect, having a reaction that tells someone they're retarded seems contradictory.

Listen, I know it's a meme and all, but really, what other point is there in these reactions other than insulting someone for whatever opinion they have? I do admit it can have its place in IC threads or shitposts, but outside of that, I feel it should be removed. Especially reports.

+1 agree that these reactions are unnecessary, and +1 to the idea about the needed reactions that are: Upvote, Downvote (Thumbs up or Thumbs down), Sad, Angry, Happy. That seems more than enough, and definitely better than feels chromosome.

This is not a thing anymore, you no longer get -1 from reactions
