How About a "Like" Button?
« on: June 03, 2017, 04:30:18 pm »
There are some posts here that just deserve some kind of props (for wit, humor, good structure, being informative, etc) that I really wish people could get to acknowledge to the posters of the content.

We used to have something like that (it was a like/dislike system). It created way more drama than it could possibly be worth.

We had a points system and some people were ganged up on and some got upset. There was really no real benefit to it and as the only outcome was either "meh" or sadness the system was removed.

I have seen a like mechanic on a different forum where it lists the members who have liked a specific post and it's being used as a way to say "me too, I also agree with this" and it seems to work.
No matter what happens, no matter what my last words may end up being, I want everyone to claim that they were:
"If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you could possibly imagine."
Aww, you guys rock. :)  I feel the love... and the pitchforks and torches.  Tingly!

I can see how are downvote system could lead to drama and revenge neg ratings, but just having one for positive reactions wouldn't wind up too bad.

This has been brought up a few times and never worked well, so I'd rather err on the side of caution this time.

Someone actually signed up a new account to post this.
This is too funny.

At some point people were making fun of Ironbite and there were like 5 or so different accounts with Iron[chew/swallow/digest/etc] names.
