To be honest, I think that the like button is a bad idea. I feel that it will take away from users posting because they will just hit the like button instead. Conversations will devolve into lame one-two post discussions with everyone else just taking a side and liking the post that they agree with the most. But then again that's just my thoughts on the matter.

Personally I like having seemingly thoughtful conversations where the participants are actively including their ideas on the matter rather than people sitting around in a tight circle nodding at each other in agreement.

I've brought that point up before, and it was brought to my attention that actually the only posts it will really stop from appearing are one-word ones like "this", "lol", "PERRY WHERE'S MY LIKE BUTTON?" and other useless garbage like that. So it's definitely a good idea.

Very true. Either way I don't think I'll be using the feature if it ever comes out. When I typically agree with something I usually have something to add to the discussion.

We need that more than we need a like button, but we can't flip a switch and make people do that like we can to add a like button here (okay it's more than flipping a switch, but you get the idea) so we do what we can do.

Here are 100 new features, even if you'll only use 5.

It doesn't quite work out that way.

Rather than rehashing previous discussions, I'll just post links to posts:

It reinforces posting, not discourages it. cool.gif

^ Did you read the full post? Perry said it will come. That means it will come. Eventually. Well, porting the scripts from WME Forums seems to drag the loading times down.

It is on the list of things that will happen. Right now it's impossible. Perry is the sole person that has access to the site's code, and he's currently out of the US. When he gets back, I will harp on him to make this a feature.

Whenever he gets around to it, that's OK, there's more important things in life. I think Rudy was being overly dramatic to be funny. laugh2.gif
