    suggest that the thumbs up and thumbs down status of threads be made visible on the listing page, visible prior to the actual opening of the thread

    reason - just opened a worthless thread that had one thumbs down thread prior to the one that i gave it. This would be a site enhancement

    by the way, this will only work if the information posted applies only to paid subs thumbs

    Some of the best threads on the entire site pull in the most thumbs down.

    I'm not against your proposal, just disagree with your rational.

    This really can't be done because threads don't get thumb votes, only individual posts do.

    And surely a tally of thumbs up/thumbs down of all the individual posts in a thread wouldn't be of a lot of use to see before you even open the thread. Some posts just flat-out deserve to be voted down, and that doesn't mean the whole thread is worthless.

    The only way I can see this idea working if it is made known that a vote on the OP is a vote on the thread, and then maybe show only that post's vote in the thread list.
