What happened to Meh


Recommended Posts

Not sure where to post this so feel free to punt it to a better spot if needed, but why was "Meh" removed as a reaction to posts? I feel it filled a spot that angry/sad/confused doesn't fill. And if it was felt that it is disrespectful or something, how is it any worse than angry? If I told someone in person something I was passionate about, I would be less upset if their reaction was "Meh" versus them being "Angry". Sorry if this was already talked about, just send me a link and lock the thread if that is the case. Meh was my favorite response besides thumbs up, and felt like the opposite of it. Angry is too strong of an emotion for me on a forum about toy soldiers. Meh felt appropriate.

I'm assuming it was taken away, as I can no longer do it and have not seen anyone else do it in quite some time.

Not to sound flippant, but that still doesn't answer *why* it was removed? Any insights into that?

My guess is because people were using it like a reddit downvote button. Felt out of place on this forum.

There was a feeling that it was seen as a dismissive reaction, with no real positive value, it is in effect a non-reaction, so doesn't need a reaction to convey, it adds nothing to the debate, and could detract from it, and maybe even discourage the poster who received it. 

There was a vote of the mods, and it was decided to remove it.

Thank you, I appreciate the transparency.
