    It’s a great thing what you’re doing with kids. Loving that you opened a call for speakers for kids, and a 2-day camp is an excellent idea. Adding WC Miami to my WC list I want to visit :)

    “At this time they are not planning on including any negative ones.”

    Doesn’t this guarantee that all the speakers will receive good ratings? Why not add a negative one but force people to provide a text response as to why they made that choice. What is the point of the app if all you can do is select positive emoji?

      If you looked at emoji as either positive or negative I suppose that’s a good question. But different emoji for clapping, smiling, etc. can give a speaker useful feedback – just how it’s possible to give valuable feedback about a talk or plugin without having to include anything obviously “negative”.

      We are also likely planning on allowing speakers to choose, which gives them the right to make that decision. Personally I think a poop emoji would be cute, but some wouldn’t.

      Thanks for your thoughts. Slap a “social experiment” sticker on this. :-)
