Thumbs up / thumbs down feature problems
I just ran into an issue when reading Forum posts on my phone. If you accidentally press near the thumbs up / thumbs down icon and select one or the other because you've got a fat finger and a little tiny scream then there is no way to undo that event. If anyone knows otherwise please chime in serious

its so frustrating I too had a little tiny scream!


(not serious)

seriously though it is a bit clunky for sure

I just tried it; I was able to undo it by zooming in on my screen... Maybe I'll do a little tiny scream later...

I'm on my computer now and am not finding a way to cancel my thumbs up mistake. I had also tried by zooming in on my phone screen. How exactly did you accomplish the undo Justin? Maybe enter a down to cancel an up? I did not try that for fear of making the record more confusing.

Tom,

That's what I did. I hit "down," which shows me a "-1," & if I hit "up" takes it back to zero, then hit "up" again to get a "1."

YMMV, maybe different OSs work otherwise...

Thanks Justin.
Using that method I got the post back to the state it was in when I made my fat finger mistake.

I've had to write/post notes of apology on a number of occasions to folks whose post I appreciated, but had unintentionally indicated disapproval of. Sometimes, it's fat fingers on a small touchscreen. Sometimes, it's bad aim. Sometimes, it's simply not paying enough attention. So these days, unless I am confident in hitting a visible target of my intention, I'd rather just post a reply that expresses appreciation.

this seems like a real time commitment, although it would be step back toward direct human communication!

In lieu of that maybe a large ice cream cone and a similarly large poo emoji on distant corners at the bottom of the posts would allow for a less ambiguous and error prone expression of both positive and negative assessments by those in too big a hurry to directly communicate?
