Several people have expressed dissatisfaction over the years with the "red cross" option on the Fishy. I have knocked up a prototype with 3 alternatives:

https://jsfiddle.net/8dxt27Lz/show

Approach 1 - as now. This shows have may people approve and disapprove of a post.
Approach 2 - show net score. This shows the ticks MINUS the crosses, so gives a net score, but you cannot see how many of each type of vote there has been.
Approach 3 - show only the ticks. This is simpler but gives no idea how supported a post is. In the example shown it shows that 10 people agree with it but no indication of how many disagree.

This is a consultation and I have added a poll to help see what the preferred option is.

So with approach 2, if you had received more negatives than positives your tick score would go no lower than zero?

It can be positive or negative. In the example, it's 10 ticks and 30 crosses, so the net score is -20. 40 ticks and 30 crosses would have a net score of +10

I don't see much difference between option 1 and 2 really....just saves you doing the maths.......keep it as it is for me.

Option four: display who has ticked and crossed posts so you can call people out for disagreeing but not providing alternative views. It would create debate rather than descend into posters being glum about people not liking them.

That's another alternative although with option 2 you simply don't know whether anyone has red crossed it unless the net score is negative {or you happen to notice it go down).
