Liking a post e.g someones scrot for the month would be more efficient rather than posting imo, less load on the site also.

How so?

Re: Like post

Does it really make posting competitive?  I mean I assume the context for that would be the screenshot/config threads... but showing appreciation by clicking a like button is a pretty universally positive thing.

Do you, Vast, really think it would change the atmosphere of the forum in a negative way?

I don't know about VastOne, but I think it would make this place feel more like Twitter or Facebook.

I remember there was a similar thread about two years ago - coincidentally at about the time Statler/Squeeze was going stable - and either Papanominal chose not to implement such a feature, or it wasn't available in PunBB.

I agree...and I think that the current method is a much better and personal interaction than a "like" would be...

Re: Like post

The context I am speaking about is at sites where I have been and seen it fail.  The likes became important only to the clans that supported one another and the 'normal' users left out of it all.

I agree with pvsage as well... no likeness to FB is a good thing.

Re: Like post

I think that such a extension would be great. Sometimes it's unneccessary to write a post just because you want to show somebody that you like his post. There does not have to be a "thank count" or something like that, so it would not be competitive I think...

Re: Like post

I have to agree with VDP76 and that personal interaction serves us better, this thread alone shows us why

Re: Like post

linuxquestions has an "I found this post helpful" feature that is useful for separating the good advice from the garbage advice. When I am scanning a thread, if I scroll down to the post that has the most votes, it is usually the post that solved the OP's problem (and will hopefully solve mine). Also I am more likely to follow advice from a poster with high reputation than someone unknown. Let's face it, there is no IQ test to join the forums, and a lot of bad advice sprinkled in among the good.

Re: Like post

Nice snowpine, that is a much better solution that allows for a quick find to an issue...

I would use that when on the IRC looking for a specific solve thread to help someone there

Would it be safe to say you "liked" my post, VastOne?  big_smile

Now if someone can just engineer a "buy the man a beer" button....
