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.

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

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.

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?

See these fingers Tee? <<raises first two fingers in v shape to face Tee>>

They're yours!

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.

suwoo Sat 09-Apr-11 18:36:37

Sounds like it'd just end up being some sort of popularity contest

suwoo Sat 09-Apr-11 18:45:19

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!
