Reactions are officially here!

Reactions are another way for the community to give feedback on a post; for more information, see this Meta post.

I've disabled the default "Works for me", "Outdated", and "Dangerous" reactions for now, since I don't feel like they work well for this community. That's where you all come in - we can add any reactions that this community needs, so please give your suggestions!

All languages have dialects and an answer on a specific topic can be true... or false, depending on the dialect. For this, I think we could add a reaction like:

  • This matches with my dialect [add comment indicating region/country]
  • This does not match my dialect [idem]

I think this would be specially interesting for questions about Spanish, which is used quite differently across many countries.

[Citation needed]

As a more academically focused site, it might be useful to mark answers as lacking sufficient citations to back the answer up authoritatively. This gives a way for users to express skepticisms without the baggage of downvotes, which would imply an answer is actually wrong in some way, rather than just needing improvement in this regard.

I had asked some question. So, from experience on asking question I can say that

helpful is better for the community.

Unhelpful

A answer can be good and bad in languages CD. But I don't think word in language also gets outdated. So I am saying that Helpful and Unhelpful is better for reaction. Even they are helpful for the community's Meta site.

Unhelpful requires comment.

Sometimes, people can give false information. For reason, I would like to "expand" the Unhelpful reaction.

Description of Unhelpful : False information or poorly written.?

Helpful : Good answer; helpful for me.?

I don't have any idea how helpful reaction will be helpful. But unhelpful reaction will be helpful cause as we know that if a person react as unhelpful than they must add comment while they can downvote without saying why the post is unhelpful.

I just chose Helpful as opposite of Unhelpful
