"Like" button on posts
« on: September 25, 2013, 11:46:08 am »
I frequently find that when I'm having a quick browse and haven't time to post a reply, that a like button in recognition of someone's modelling skills or financial dexterity in acquiring models would be very useful. the "Thank you" is fine when receiving help and replies to questions. Just my an idea.

I tend to think that people use the 'Thank You' as a 'Like' button'.  I will look into installing a 'like' feature though if members would like it.  Please have your say folks!

I also use "Thank You" in place of 'Like', but it would be nice to have both choices

Hi, I have not been on the site for a few weeks (Illness) but I think a Like button is a good idea

Personally - I don't see the point ...

We already have a button - why not just use that, or give it a rename to "Thanks/Like"?

Otherwise we need a "dislike" button as well - and a "can't be arsed" button too ...  After all, if the original post you want to "like" doesn't interest you enough to actually reply to it in the first place, why bother at all ?

I kind of figured that if you were thanking somebody, you could just be thanking them for posting and therefore you like what they have posted?

Can't cope with too many buttons!

a match and can of petrol button would be useful, of course the mods would then need some sort of fire extinguisher process or sprinkler system.....  :rain:
