We've discussed this multiple times but has been turned down every time. As a forum, posting is encouraged, to add a like button would cause people to just "like" rather than actually post.

I would have issues with it because it would cause favoritism. Especially if it were to be anonymous. But there was one idea to allow likes on the statuses and test it out a bit before adding it to the main forum. Which I really wouldn't be opposed to. No harm in trying.

Also, this might not even be possible. Depends on the forum software.

I'm also on a different forum, but it has the same general layout, and you can like posts and statuses, which is like, because it's easier to show you like something.

We should totes have this so I can 'like' an incredibly intelligent post, or one in a debate thread that is 'winning' and thus insinuate it as my own thoughts and opinion without any expectation of being able to defend it (whether I understood a word of it or not) ^_^ The feeling of intellectual superiority at a simple click of a button! 'Twould be marvellous.

I frequent a forum with a "thanks" button - works well.

And it does not depend on forum software because forum software can be modified by the user.

I would share this too my wall, but apparently we're not Facebook.

 

Also, I hate the like button. Hitting a button doesn't mean you like anything.

Like buttons are stupid. Sophisticated sites only use hate buttons.

Please, for the love of God, install a hate button.

"Likes" and "Hates" are very dangerous because people use them to gang up on and drag down the reputation of a user they don't like, and it discourages discussion as people will use the button to express their feelings and hide in anonymity, typically in discussions they have baseless views on.

We're not Facebook.

We have status updates, a news feed, and "timeline covers," but this is where we draw the line on being too much like Facebook??

Well, I see now why y'all haven't added "like" or "+1" buttons

Haha, this thread itself is ample enough reason cx
