New 'Like' feature on the forum

Post by Kitkat on Sat 05 May 2018, 10:37

  
You will find a new button in the posting area of the forum:  There is now the option to click the little green thumbs-up icon down the bottom of each message post, if you like/agree with/approve of the post.  When you have clicked the green hand, a message will show that someone has liked that member's post - and there will also be a permanent record to show how many 'likes' that post has received.
You will also be able to read back over old topics and click to 'like' individual posts as you read.
Each post that you 'like' will automatically add to the posting member's 'likes' count which will show in their profile.

(Obviously, you will not be able to 'like' any of your own posts.  lol - it must just be assumed that you agree/approve/like it if you have posted it in the first place!  )

There is an option for a "thumbs down" one (a little red hand), but I have not currently enabled it as I fear it may be abused. Far better (imo) if someone is to dislike or disagree with a certain post, that they voice their disagreement and reasons for such, by making a reply post on the topic and perhaps encouraging and contributing to a debate that might arise from it(?)

I agree with you. Too much abuse might follow.

The little green hand seems to have disappeared. Don't know why - I will have to investigate and get it sorted.  (Not now though - Corrie is on ...) sidestep
