"Like" Button?

Unread postby Saturnalia » Tue Jul 10, 2012 5:35 pm

Is there a way to get a "Like" button or something like that, such as a "Thumbs Up" button?

I think it would be a good addition to the board :)

Especially if you could choose weather or not to have "Like" on a post/thread. For instance, a good place to have them would be a Trip Report and the very least.

Or maybe someone could just say "nice pics" or "good shots" or maybe even a "Great Job!" lol

While I understand where you're coming from, MQT3001, this isn't Facebook. I personally don't care for the "like" button concept. If I want to "like" something I go to facebook. If I really like something somebody posted, I add to my post count and tell them so.

[LIKE]

Does that count?

Not sure on the like button. Seeing how the "like" button has been over done.

No, it would either be over used or neglected. This isn't Facebook.

I guess the majority says no. That's fine.....majority rules

Do I have to offer a monetary reward so someone will actually post a REASON why they say no? Saying "I don't think it a good idea" dosn't cut it. :lol:

Because it adds nothing to the site. It's a discussion forum. Saying "Good shot" or "I like this" adds nothing to the discussion.

Alex, please think before you say things, your first post was fine, your second was just too much. This just adds to further ridicule and piling on when it comes to you.
