Hi,

Can we have "Like" or "+1" feature for posts?

Thanks

* Use [ code ] to paste your logs
* Use [ quote ] to cite relevant portions instead of quoting entire post

I would like to have better control over things such as this (i.e. good content is more accessible and easier to find). Reality is, it's best to change forum software to implement this. However, there is an issue converting the current database formats to another to be able to do this (and deciding which is the best one to change to).

So it seems these aren't going to happen anytime soon but apart from forum software/DB issues as you said, we have another issue of sanity (cleanliness) on our forums that:

  • Instead of adding link only (or thumbnails with link to image), full screenshots are added
  • Users don't use code tags where they should
  • Entire posts are quoted instead of relevant portion(s) only
This thread is not so good example of above where one guy posted without code tags, another guy quoted him full and it gets wrapped up once again by 3rd. These things can be taken care by mods but are ignored at the moment.
