Couldn't agree more. There's no need for all those emotions and especially the negative ones might even be harmful to the whole community. There used to be a 'report post option' and that should be enough. Also it would be really useful if you could port all the previous likes for individual posts from the old forums. Those really helped to point out the most informative posts as BSim500 wrote. I don't really care how many likes I have as a user but would like that all informative posts, mine or especially someone else's, would stand out.Also just noticed - do we really need 17x different dislike / like "emotions". From what I've seen on other forums in the past, whereas "likes" can make a helpful post stand out, when you introducing "dislikes, sad dislike, angry dislike, boring dislike, nitpicking over spelling dislike", etc, that's when forums really start to go downhill. The last thing I want to see is this place trying too hard to end up like Twitter...
I also absolutely need my edit button and I don't feel like there should be any restrictions to that. Delete is also fine as an addition. If I later find out that I've written something that isn't really true, I like to make corrections to it. Also, as a non-native speaker, I make a lot of typos and spelling mistakes and like the ability to correct them later.
