A "Like" button
#1
Either I'm lazy or don't really want to respond but a lot of times I'm

"Man, I'd love to "Like" that post."

Yes, just leave it blank. You can pick the number of points depending on how worthwhile you think the post is worth. Or, you can make it negative if you think it's stupid like some of my inane comments.

I've had the same thought myself. I think the reputation system is good, and perhaps a bit underused, but not the same as publicly "liking" a good post. The software that the forum runs on is not great, so I am not sure if such a feature can be added, but I will look into it.

I've had daydreams about migrating to software that is more modern and flexible, but I have not seen alternatives that are so obviously better that it would be worth the trouble / risk. If any of you participate in other forums that have a much better feature set, interface, or look/feel, please let me know so I can explore further.

And thanks -- I always appreciate feedback on making this a better place!

I just +1'd a post here and that was it, no need to leave a comment, there was no plussing more, interesting.

I also like the "like" idea though the + does the same job. Don't need this to turn into FB.

Great job on the site.

I kind of looked at the "reputation" button as, well, a higher ranking then just a "like" button. But, I do get what you're saying.

On a side note, a few months ago that one guy got a negative ranking from someone and for some reason I just about fell off the chair laughing on that one, it still makes me laugh when I think about it. Maybe because the guy WAS/IS smart but deserved it--plus I kind of got a feeling he really only came here to sell a product, at least it felt that way, imho...lol.

Well, I installed a like button, but it doesn't seem to work! You'll see the button at the bottom right of each post. For me, when I click it, I just get an endless spin "wait" indicator. Does it act differently for anyone else? Please test it out and let me know what happens. I'll keep investigating. Thanks!

By the way, thanks for your hard work. It's appreciated.
