After work, I'll add more to this and try to explain it better.

The number to the right of the member name, is the accumulated amount of thumbs up and down said member received for any and all posts that have received either a thumbs up or thumbs down.

The number between the Up/Down graphics is how many times the members POST has received a thumbs up or down.

I like this, it kind of fills the same role that "Thanks" do, but I like the thumbsup a bit better, although I'm not sure why. Only thing I'd change is the background color on the icon, maybe make it a bit darker. Or you could make it a lighter and change the foreground color to something darker. Kind of hard to see right now.

Ooh, or you could put a thumbs up icon with a Packers helmet inside the fist, and a thumbs down with a Bears helmet inside the fist. You'd need to make the icons larger of course, but it'd be awesome :D

The graphics are actually hosted off irkoo.com so I'll have to locate within the CSS which graphic links are used. Then decide which graphics to replace them with, which is where I'm at now. Same thing with the Online/Offline. I know how to replace them, just not sure with what yet.

By the way, how often do the Thumbs Up/Thumbs Down totals update? If I give someone a thumbs up or down, the value on the post registers immediately, but it takes hours for their net value to change. Is it recalculated only once a day or something?

Since I dislike the facebook/twitter up/down stuff, I'm glad the thumbs/whine mode is unobtrusive in a way that I can ignore it.

I still miss my applause points.

FYI, this is PackersHome.com, not Twitter.com, not Facebook.com

Let's get that straight, shall we? Duh!

Yes, but by instituting thumbs-up/down, you're reinforcing and affirming their silly "innovation."

That's not true. The usage of Up/Down has been around longer than even Facebook. I remember seeing it when I was using WebTV in the late 90's. And Facebook uses "Like", not thumbs up/down. I have no clue what Twitter uses.

Anyway, it'll probably be gone in the next release or the following one. I've been reading and communicating with the developers and they are sold on a built in +/- system. This is important because I can modify it, just as I did with the +/- module with the old software.
