Feedback when Up/Down voting

Nutshell: Leave a bit of explanation when you vote - the idea you save may be your own!

 

Elevator pitch: You certainly don't have to explain your votes, but providing your reasons may help generate more good ideas. When I know *why* someone disagrees with me, I can address those concerns. When I know why someone agrees with me, I know more precisely how my idea/comment appeals to respondents.

The Social Science area could have a tie-in with the Civil Rights Museum and the Art area could have a tie-in with the Museum of Art. There could be tie-ins with The Birmingham News and maybe Innovation Depot. Who ...more »
