Anyone think of putting a "like" button on threads and their respones, similar to what facebook has?

Is it possible for users to change their settings so they don't see the like button? I find it annoying and tacky. This isn't Facebook.

I don't like it and people are still giving my posts a +1 instead of actually liking my post

Alright. Let's see how it goes. I'll change the button colour later today when I'm out of class.

The number of likes you get show up on your profile too? So now we have a star rating and a like rating. Hopefully we can come up with some additional ways to stroke internet egos and divide posters even more.

I agree. This was a stupid idea.

I don't personally care for the Like button, but I don't think anyone's internet-ego is exactly getting stroked by their star rating or Like-count on MYGNRFORUM :lol:

Yeah, right.

If it's not about ego, why keep a counter on how many likes you get, and still maintain a star ranking as well. It's like people are being graded.

Can we have a list of all the members with 5 stars and the most likes? Obviously they must be the best posters here. :lol:

I had 5 Stars once.

Then someone 1 Star'd me and fucked everything up. So now I give everyone 1 Star.

I just 1 star'd you.

Yeah, right.

Agreed.

Ok, I think the real issue here is that some members of this forum suffer from Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (I say that tongue-in-cheek) and cannot handle change, especially when it's something they don't particularly agree with. No, the like button is NOT a popularity contest - not for me, anyway - it's a way to streamline responses and eliminate/reduce the one or two word (typically useless posts) such as +1, I agree, spot on, totally, yes, etc.

No King I disagree. It has nothing to do with fear of change. I personally like most of the recent changes. The ability to talk about all eras of the band in D & N, the new Side Projects and Movie/TV forum, mods being more involved with moderating, etc.

Posts like "'I agree, spot on, +1, this" never bothered me. I've had to scroll through a lot more bullshit in threads other than the 'I agree".. I also don't understand why there has to be a tally in the profile. Someone likes a post fine, but why there's a counter on how many likes you've received is off-putting to me.

I can see your point but almost every other message board/forum that I'm on (even facebook) has one, particularly to streamline responses. There's times when people just don't want to nor have the time to sit through a thread and write responses to posts they agree with. I think it adds (more than it subtracts) to the forum.
