I was wondering if it's possible to have a feature like a "Like" button for each post. Not only is it for liking great posts but it's also useful if someone replies to you and you want to acknowledge said reply without having to reply again.

Just a thought, since I don't see any harm in it. (:

I'm on another forum that has this, and it's very nice, and occasionally I find myself wanting to like a post on here... I'm not sure how easy that would be to implement (I'm sure there's a pre-made mod out there for it already) but my question would be how useful would it be on here, a smaller community? That I'm not sure of right now.

I can certainly understand where you're coming from but if there's a pre-made mod for it that you only have to implement, what's the harm?

Of course, if you have to make it from scratch, it's definitely not worth it yet. (:

I have never really seen the attraction with these but if potential members like the 'like' buttons then it could be a welcome addition in my view.

Slix, these forums are made using phpBB, if I remember correctly there is a template for the coding somewhere, I remember implementing a similar button on my forums.
