Don't Forget to Upvote!!!

Hey Folks - I don't know if you have noticed, but upvoting/downvoting is a key feature for this community in getting the right content in front of the the community. I see a TON of posts with dozens of comments on them (which would likely mean its a solid topic) with zero upvotes on the top line of the thread. Remember, the success/value everyone gets from a community like this is in how we all engage with it. Takes a millisecond to vote up/down a post.

We are trying to rethink how to explain/promote/rework the concept of upvoting. This is a problem, but i believe its a learning curve

I like the concept in general, I think just a bit more education on the upvote -as I think folks are correlating it to a "like" IE - I agree on other social type channels. When reality is, I believe upvote to mean "good topic of discussion" .ย  Great community so far though, I'm really enjoying engaging with peers in sales.ย

I agree. There needs to be more upvote love for comments and responses with at least a little substance.

Like, for example, no need to upvote this. Iโ€™m not really adding any value, iโ€™m just agreeing with you but I upvoted this post because

a) i agree with the message
b) it prompted me to respond

Do you think folks think the "upvote" is really only there for when you agree with something?ย  My read is that it should be used for posts that 1) prompted your response 2) was a good discussion that got you thinking?ย  Yes/no?ย

It could just be a learning curve. A reminder here and there as folks are added to the WR is a good "training" idea.
