I keep wanting to 'like' posts on here a la facebook

Is there any way this could happen? Or not.

It would be great, but I suspect it wouldnt be possible on this forum template (I have no idea of correct terminology).

It drives me mad that I keep going to press like and it aint there.

What is "like" in this context?

MickyLee Sat 09-Apr-11 16:45:02

Yes I agree! I want to like posts so much too.

Great to show support on threads I am not getting involved with or to thank someone you agree with.

suwoo Sat 09-Apr-11 16:45:31

If I were impressed with a posters sentiment or found it funny perhaps.

Pfft.

But what if no-one 'liked' any of your posts? [insecure]

suwoo Sat 09-Apr-11 16:50:23

That wouldn't happen to me Dooin. I am 'liked' left, right, and centre on facebook. So there stream.

Things like that kill conversation on forums. Changes the dynamic too.

suwoo Sat 09-Apr-11 16:53:52

I know that really. They have it on the forum DH goes on and its shit. I just annoy myself when I automatically go to 'like' something and forget I'm not on fb. I really do spend far too long on there. It's cos I'm a stjooooodent innit.

No. Don't want it. Love FB, but this isn't FB. It's MN.

See how the letters are different?

Oh God and now I'm expecting the little number to show in my banner when someone has posted on my thread, like when someone does on fb.

I want to like posts sometimes too.

PrivetDancer Sat 09-Apr-11 17:12:50

I think it's a good idea, i don't want to post saying 'yes I agree with poster x' very often but a little like button would be cool.

Only appropriate in chat and Aibu threads though I think.

Might be interesting to see how many people agree with controversial opinions when they can do it anonymously.

Thanks suwoo! I can always use to extra fingers with a toddler around.

I feel like I am in One Direction. I am currently wearing them with harems <<double twat>>. They are from Primarni.

PrivetDancer Sat 09-Apr-11 21:01:42

I reckon there are loads of people agreeing it's a good idea but they can't be arsed to post 'What PrivetDancer said'. These people need a button, dammit!
