Similar to the “Thanks” feature, could you all implement a “Like” feature as in Facebook's like system? While every post isn’t necessarily worth “thanking” for someone for – as I save those for major updates and important information, there are some posts I really like. But, I don’t want to post a reply stating, “Hey, I like your post”..

Kind of redundant to have a 'like' feature when there's the option to give thanks. Also, this isn't Facebook.

I thanked you for your post...but feel it was more deserving of a high five.

Mods, can we have a high five button too?

Not necessarily. When I think of "thanking" a post, I think of a well thought-out, informative, very interesting message. Similar to some of the news updates and the illustrative "Mega Threads" you (Yama) and CVX put together.

Like is more for casual posting that's humorous, stands out, slightly interesting or just a 'good' post. For example Mr. Spencer posted something earlier in the latest news update that made me laugh (him making fun of the Merchant) . Instead of quoting him and writing, "lol" - I would rather just like it. I'm not going to "thank" him for pulling a funny or making a good joke. Or when someone states something I agree with as in Stu's case, I think a "thanks" you should be geared towards more indepth messages. And not with a 2 message reply quote that states, "I agree"...

But it's definitely not a necessity, just wanted you to see it from my perspective.

Sorry I suggested it.

No, I understand what you mean. An agreement or LOL shouldn't be used as a thanks, you are right. But I'm not sure sure we need a like button, if anything just reply. Just not worthy really.

Yama is right. The "thanks for the post" feature is pretty much the same thing as the like the post suggestion. But I will say that I do not like the "give a member rep" thing being enabled, like on vBulletin boards. That can get misused sometimes.

I also think that words speak louder than thumbs up! =)

Oh, I guess I misunderstood the way it works. I didn't know we could thank someone for 'minor' posts like that. In that case I would have gave out more "thanks' instead of waiting for more in-depth posts... Well now that is cleared up, I will "thank" away.

EDIT A few hours later: This what happens when you're drunk. I thought Yama said that an lol or agreement SHOULD be used as a thanks. Sheesh.

Sometimes I forget we even have these features! I'm always too busy reading (well, usually just skim reading xD) new posts to see it!
