As you may know, in Feedback you can indicate which cases are the five that are most important to you. This then adds points to those cases and the total of those points from all users interested in the case helps inform us as to the relative level of importance of that case.
There could be other ways to do this. We could simply have a like button. Rather than being limited to five cases, you’d simply like cases that are important to you. The upside is that this is simply and obvious. The downside is that users would need to understand that with every like they are lessening the impact of all their other likes. I’m not sure that would be obvious. Liking everything is the same as liking nothing.
I would like it to be simple and obvious and perhaps a like button accomplishes that and if there’s a downside, it’s worth the simplicity.
Any thoughts on this? Do you like the current top 5 system? What do you think about replacing that with a Like button?
