Been on other sites and posts have a like option. Think it's a good way to highlight good advice.
Also makes it more interactive, especially if likes are then viewable on your account.
One to think about for future updates to the forum if not previously considered.

Would it be a good idea to combine a like feature with marking your place on a thread? It would be faster and mean that threads aren't full of people place marking.

Oh dear.

It's not Facebook.

You are most welcome to post 'I totally agree with you, blah blah blah'

Or reply with ^^this

Mamabear1980 Fri 29-Apr-16 10:59:41

Secretspy a lot of forums predating Facebook used a karma system.
You up vote a post 'like'
I used the term 'like' as voting reminded me of reddit oh dear...

This came round again quickly.

RafaIsTheKingOfClay Fri 29-Apr-16 11:02:29

Sorry, posted too soon.

This comes up a lot. Whenever it's discussed the conclusion is overwhelmingly that people don't want it.

This is MNHQ's reply from the most recent previous thread about this subject:

Hi all - just to clarify, this aint gonna happen grin

Thank you for the suggestion OP - we have been through this a few times now, and it always quite strongly leans towards no. We do like discussion over here on MN and items like a "like" button do tend to discourage discussion in the place of a quick "like".

Many thanks for posting everyone.

Mamabear1980 Fri 29-Apr-16 11:11:29

Fair dos. Just found the search button and seen very hot topic.
Will take suggestion out of the box and back in my hat.
Good times.

DonkeyOaty Fri 29-Apr-16 11:12:00

No thank you

Cheers Zombie, saved me digging for that particular post [thumbs up]

Mamabear1980 Fri 29-Apr-16 11:14:32

Iamthezombie Like thanks for your comment

Gordon Bennett - not this one again <yawn>

Hi Zombie <<waves>> grin wine grin

DawnMumsnet (MNHQ) Fri 29-Apr-16 18:29:59

Thanks for posting that quote, Zombie smile

Sorry, Mamabear. Call us old-fashioned (or obtuse, even!) but the consensus has always been, and appears to remain, overwhelmingly against a 'like' button.

Sparklingbrook Fri 29-Apr-16 19:11:05

I like old fashioned. smile It's Mumsnet 'Talk' after all.

WaitrosePigeon Fri 29-Apr-16 20:38:18

Thank god it's still a no.

ShowOfHands Fri 29-Apr-16 20:41:33

No to quotes too before that gets mentioned. Or hide poster. Or an edit function.

Sparklingbrook Fri 29-Apr-16 20:45:40

I am over wanting the Hide Poster function any more. I ignore them now. It's actually ok. grin

I would like a timed edit function for thread titles but that's it.

SilverBirchWithout Fri 29-Apr-16 22:50:31

It really isn't that type of forum.

Some of us likes it see what I did there because people actually talk to each other and share their own opinions.

It's not a popularity contest.

Message withdrawn at poster's request.

ShowOfHands Sat 30-Apr-16 09:31:24

I cba either. A judge button would suffice.

SilverBirchWithout Sun 01-May-16 15:42:37

Ooh yes an 'I'm judging you' button would be good.

We could also eliminate all the bunfight arguments on AIBU by just having YABU, YANBU and IHNO (I have no opinion) buttons.

Maryz Sun 01-May-16 21:25:22

Ah now Showy, I want a hide poster option <sulks>

I second SilverBirch's suggestion of the replacement of aibu threads with just title and yabu/yanbu buttons?

<dislikes usual grin>

WaitrosePigeon Sun 01-May-16 22:46:04

A twat button would be great

BIWI Sun 01-May-16 22:51:26

You can always just post 'like'
grin

RafaIsTheKingOfClay Sun 01-May-16 22:54:34

I suppose the 'goady fucker' , 'journalist' and 'troll' buttons would be too much to ask for.

WaitrosePigeon Sun 01-May-16 22:56:47

Goady fucker, even better
