    Default Having a "like" button for posts.

    I think having a "like" button would be cool. Pretty sure, I've seen other forums with a similar feature. The main thing is, I don't think it would affect posting that much. It would just be another option of interaction. Sometimes, you just appreciate someone's post but don't really have anything else to say other than that.
    When they said "sit down", I stood up.

    That's when you make like bornlie and say "^^ What she said!"
    Why do we need a like button?

    I think that it is sufficient to rate threads. People seldom do that, possibly because it is difficult.

    Facebook's LIKE button is irritating and annoying. Bighead, your idea sounds awesome! But will the mods be down with it though? •__•

    I know that this is not the first time this has been brought up. Nor the second time. As far as viability goes, it'd be up to our Great and Powerful Webmaster.

    Some Facebook features have already been integrated in the forums. Such as logging in via Facebook Connect and publishing threads to Facebook.

    When you're using the Default vBulletin skin it is possible to 'like' threads, it is not supported by other skins however, at the time it wasn't documented on how to integrate in different skins. It'd be worth it to see if it can be done easily now.

    I've noticed that many people who used to post here a lot now talk about the band on Facebook instead, that's one (and probably the main) reason why this please has gone down in activity. I'm all in for it to give it a try, as long as it's not irritating and annoying like Dulce suggest it is, because I can imagine it would be.

    I'm beginning to think that I'm the only one who doesn't a "like" botton would be annoying. I think it would be awesome. If someone types something and you agree with it just hit "like" and its done. But I don't know, that's just me..

    But why? Why remove the presence of conversation?
    For example, I just had two people tell me that I had a really funny post here. If they had "liked" it, I would not have got the feeling that they thought it was funny. I would have thought that they appreciated my explanation.

    I'm with bighead. I would never post just to tell someone I thought something they said was funny or interesting. Don't know why. But over the years, a few people have lamented that they've always felt underappreciated/invisible/whatever. Those are usually the people I admire the most (T-6005 and harleyquiiin come to mind). With a "like" button, they might know just how obsessed with them I am.
