I have spent so much time on Facebook during the covid 19 pandemic that I find myself trying to click like after reading a post here on TMP. why not add a simiar feature here so at a glance we can see what response a given post is receiving>

It's been voted down before, but let's see. grin

Fitzovich22 Jun 2020 8:21 a.m. PST

I agree that would be a good idea.

Ferd4523122 Jun 2020 8:59 a.m. PST

Like I'd use it. H

I disagree, mostly because I don't care* what other people think, especially about what I say.
But I'm not usually in the main stream of social movements.

* ie. "don't need their approval"

You only need a "Like" button if you're too lazy to actually type out your thanks or appreciation for someone's contribution.

So you're saying we need a "Lazy" button…?

Brownand23 Jun 2020 2:48 a.m. PST

no buttons please!

I'd vote for that.

Mostly because it would save "message" space in the database, because you could "like" instead of posting a new message. And then the item count for each post would better indicate some debate (which I find interesting to follow).

But absolutely no league tables for most likes, either for post or poster or anything else.

You mean like I learned from the USAF ? "The Green button is for coffee … the Red button destroys the world."

The idea sounds democratic. Should be a "dislike" option also.

notes winner!

Are we Instagram models or wargamers?

Wargamer Blue: LOL!

On other gaming forums I participate in, it is a common feature. Those forums, however, are more genteel than TMP (they're also much smaller for membership, less popular, etc.). I guess my vote for it as a feature on TMP, would be: "Meh." Cheers!

snurl129 Jul 2020 12:38 a.m. PST

Maybe a "Meh" button too?
