Like and Dislike
In our constant effort to improve the Harriet experience, we've implemented a new comments feature for readers to express their likes and dislikes.
The new comments feature allows readers to anonymously state a "like" or "dislike" preference for comments on Harriet posts by clicking on the "thumbs-up" or "thumbs-down" icons below each comment.
Each reader will only be able to "like" or "dislike" once for each comment, so there's no reason to worry about getting a frantic "like" click frenzy--or the opposite-- from one particular reader.
The like/dislike ratio will be displayed to the left of the handy icons, updating with each vote. If a comment hits a certain dislike ratio, that comment will be hidden, requiring readers to click to view it.
We hope this feature will give the Harriet community another way to voice its opinions about the discussions occurring in the thread. If you have questions about the new feature, please email us and let us know.
