How about a “like” button? Sometimes someone posts something that I really agree with but I have nothing to add to the conversation but I’d still like to express my appreciation. While we’re on the topic, a “dislike” button might be interesting as well.

Interesting idea! We'll discuss it and see if it's possible with the forum software.  :)

I think they call it "karma" on here - it also has a "smite" option......may not want that option as it can cause friction!!

As shadow says we are looking at it!

If this function is implemented, I'd recommend leaving it out of the General News section of the forum. There it could be detrimental to encouraging open discourse since people could easily dismiss others' opinions by "disliking" them.

Defintely won't implement any 'dislike' button....it could be very harmful to the kind of community we are all building here.

Plus if people don't like something someone has posted it is more fun to discuss it passionately, interestingly and respectfully than it is to click a button to 'dislike' it!

Makes sense. Just thought I’d throw it out there.

It's a good suggestion and the like button if possible is certainly something shadow and the gang (cool name for a band!) are looking at!
