>My comments are specifically rooted in reality of EC and the usage and functionality of kontra.
No, your comments assert that there is a some way of displaying kontra that correctly adheres to its function.
But kontra has only ever had a social function. The fact that a kontra'd post doesn't bump the thread doesn't mean anything in of itself. It only matters within the social context of what bumping or not bumping a thread means to said social group.
If people think that not bumping is a way to give less exposure to the OP, they'll use it like that.
If people think that not bumping is a way to give less exposure to your own post, they'll use it like that.
What kontra does doesn't matter. What kontra means is what matters. And changing the way kontra is displayed tells the audience what kontra means. smile as.
And by the way, if you for some reason wanted to have kontra but in a contextless void where people care about having the ability to not bump a thread, but don't know why they're doing it, the answer is not having the kontra text in "neutral colors", it's not displaying the kontra text at all.
So you're, like, double wrong.
>Wrong. Functionality and usage are specific topics.
Here's 3 pictures of rocks. Can you explain to me what functionality they have that exists separately from their usage? Lmao.
>A color can guide usage. Color does not dictate functionality. The usage is dictated by the users.
Let's say you have two buttons you can press on every post with counters next to them. When you press a button, the corresponding counter increases by 1.
Is this a karma system or just two arbitrary numbers?
Now imagine the same thing, except one of the boxes is green, and the other is red. Now it's definitely a karma system, because the only meaningful functionality of those buttons is a property of its usage, and its usage is dictated by color, which is dictated by the social context of associating certain colors with certain values. QED.
>And a good designer would match an elements visuals to reflect both it's function and intent.
Visuals communicate intent. And in cases where the function IS to communicate intent, visuals determine the function. Simple as.
>Adhominem more, idiot retard. Check yourself before making claims of being a "design eggspert" who can't differentiate between function and intent.
On the contrary, I think it is you who should check yourself before
