Would it be an idea to have a like/dislike button on posts? It would save SO much hot air and posting and reposting from people.

Also, is it possible please to link to other posters when you post? As an "@" button?

AlpacaLypse Mon 11-Apr-16 15:41:38

I'd quite like this too, it would save writing stuff like 'What xx said'.

Having said, I seem to remember being told when the subject last came up that Tech reckoned it would be impossible given the site's basic structure, no matter how much gin we offered.

I'm not sure about linking to other posters, if you desperately want them to know you've said something on a thread you could always PM them. I have done this a couple of times.

I've said this 1,236,987 times before : I disagree and think it would be a crap idea. It's just dumbing down.

Sparklingbrook Mon 11-Apr-16 15:43:45

It has been asked for many times. It has always been a no thank goodness.

Just highlight names if you want to respond to other posters.

It would also be good to have a signature section so I can put in some information about my family and maybe include a little poem.

No

What Soupy and Sparklers said

glasgowlass Mon 11-Apr-16 15:49:46

No no no. This is not FB (though it sometimes feels like it) & it's already very easy to highlight a pps name to address a reply to.

DonkeyOaty Mon 11-Apr-16 15:50:22

Pahahahaha at little poem

I always wonder why people want to turn MN into Facebook/Twitter.

It's Mumsnet 'Talk' after all.

LilacSpunkMonkey Mon 11-Apr-16 16:09:35

Ooh yes please! And can we have tickers? And sparkly things?

That was sarcasm. It's a NO from me too.

SoupDragon Mon 11-Apr-16 16:15:16

Moving emoticons!!

FruStefanOla Mon 11-Apr-16 16:35:49

We haven't had one of these threads for a while - I was wondering when the next one was due!

No!

Mummylin Mon 11-Apr-16 16:41:59

No no no

I don' t know what you are all on about, I've never seen a thread like this before confused

grin

Shall I offer my analogy of wandering into my local and instead of talking to people just listen in on conversations and stick smiley face stickers on the people I agree with. And then everyone who comes in after me can just listen to the people with smiley face stickers and ignore everyone else.

It would make the pub very boring imo.

Sorry SMHL, as you may notice some of us are rather opinionated on this grin

ThinkBeforePosting Mon 11-Apr-16 18:06:53

It's a no from me too. sad

I would like a hide poster function though

..and for the zombie thread warning to stay on threads longer than a couple of new posts

Sparklingbrook Mon 11-Apr-16 18:10:46

YY sort the Zombies out definitely. I have a thread in this topic with some suggestions.

Hide Poster is v controversial and some posters say it would be a form of bullying.

It's a NO from me too.

If I want to "like" things I'll go on Facebook.

ShowOfHands Mon 11-Apr-16 18:39:33

Oh no, no and thrice no.

Maybe a judge button during a full moon. Some days I'd hit it hard.

Otherwise, words please.
