So on this other forum I'm a member of, they have a feature that allows you to like a post. "Likes" aren't counted, but you can still see who liked the post, so I think this is a great way to solve the thank-whoring problem.

If they did something really great, you can still give them credit by repping them, the same way we do here.

Or you could just take away the Thank count...

Who cares if it copies Facebook? It makes more sense IMO.

I see where you're coming from but there's one thing wrong with your statement. Don't "replace" the thanks button with a like button. That's just stupid. Add another button next to the thanks button that says like. Not like the one in that pic because like above, THIS AINT FACEBOOK.

The best way to solve the thank whore prob is to

1. Keep the Thanks button
2. Add a "like" button that doesn't count for anything

That way if you "like" a post, u can click it and it'll just show others u liked it, but if you really think someone contributed, u can click the thanks button and add to there thank count.

I don't see the difference between a like and thanks button. Honestly if you thank a post obviously you like it. So a like button would be pointless.

Not towards u completely but quit saying this isn't facebook, obviously its not. But everyone is just saying that because some1 else said it. If the fucking button said "Appreciate" YOU GUYS WOULD STILL BE BITCHING, idc for the idea of the like button but really just say no u don't like the idea... not "THIS IS NOT FACEBOOK" -_-. FACEBOOK DOES NOT OWN THE WORD LIKE, AND YOU CAN USE ANOTHER WORD!...

imo i'd think that would be terrible idea since its already hard to get +rep because people just thank so if u add a like ppl might only like and not thank any more thus making it harder to get a thank and +rep. but anyways thats just imo

You're just saying that because you have no rep. ;D
Just kidding, don't take that seriously but yeah, a like button would just make us like facebook and then everyone would be trolling to get likes. amirite?

TBN is not Facebook or any other forum for that matter. I don't get the difference of a "Like" button, the e-satisfaction that someone likes something you wrote??. IMHO
Thanks > Like.
Besides, I really do not see a benefit to TBN when there is a like button. It'll probably lead to posts with "I iz on drugz" <-- 8 likes.

This.

However if we did get a Like button, I would want a Dislike button to go with it.
