    I think this would train noobs and all members to make more useful posts and discourage starting stupid threads. Wonder if this is possible?

    what do you think?

    :D

    I actually agree with this one, but there should be something that not everyone can use the "no thanks" button (abuse). So maybe people with over 250 posts or jr.vip or higher?

    I'd do "no thanks" for that post.

    This idea is quite good.

    We have enough problems already with people giving unjustified
    negative reps. I don't think we need yet another button to abuse.

    You give them the privilege based on I don't know what, the solution should be screening based on something. (age? contribution?).

    Negative rep based on nothing:

    Wiz a "no thanks" button only means someone disagree with what you wrote, also every "no thanks" button I have seen in vbulletin forums show the name of who pressed "no thanks". May be to lower any type of abuse you can limit "no thanks" to members of a certain age, amount of posts and rep.
    The difference of rep is that it is suppose to be a sign of how trustworthy you are in the community, while at the same time the negative rep do not show a name.
