Remove the LOL reaction button

That reaction is not something we absolutely have to have and first and foremost it would put an end to all the LOL-trolls that come out whenever anyone posts a controversial statement and especially when a Killer main or supposed Killer main posts something the Survivor mains don't like. Then the LOLs get spammed.

And I know for a fact that the mods had to deal with that issue already, probably multiple times by now. You go to any "controversial" (in quotes because it usually isn't controversial at all, just something that doesn't fit biased people's agendas) person's profile and see an unusually high amount of LOL reactions.

    Well both sides have their trolls and since you can't thumbs down a post the lol is there which also is useful for a funny post. I've always wondered why there's isn't more options to use for where you partially agree with the post etc.

    I also find it interesting that you say killer mains get spammed with it yet look at some of the survivor mains or survivor sided posts get lol'd into oblivion. I know who a few of the most likely culprits are on both sides.

    How about keep the lol button and then add a disagree type button so you can basically say you disagree with the post. Besides which if people are getting bothered over the lol button then they're just feeding the trolls that do it to both sides.

    There was a disagree button. Do you want to guess why it was removed?

    Remove the reaction system in general, all of it.
    If people want to say something there is a huge white box on the bottom of a page.

    But I get badges!

    It does kinda suck that LOL is more negative because sometimes people do post something funny. It's what the other buttons are for, I guess.

    And if they took out the lol button, something else would just take its place.

    What exactly? The only other remaining buttons would be Vote Up and Awesome, not something trolls want to react with and comment trolls are fought much more easily than simple LOL-trolls as you actually get to see the person behind it.

    I wasn't here for that but yeah I understand why it got removed, better to remove the people abusing it than the actual button. The trolls that abuse that are actually really easy to catch with some simple steps used.

    I do like the lol button, but it is currently used for negative feedback 50% of the time. Adding a 'Press F to pay your respects' button would be amusing (but not productive ofc)
  • FujinRaijinFujinRaijin Member Posts: 66

    I agree with the reaction being taken out, but from my (small amount) of experience on these boards it seems to be more spammed by killers, but that doesn't matter and I do agree it serving no purpose.

    This is where we need an even better button the AWESOMELOL, when a post is so funny or bad you upgrade your response.
