Thumbs up/down, upvote/downvote, like/dislike, etc.

Post by thegreendalegelf » January 11th, 2018, 2:30 pm

Has there been any talk about adding a thumbs up/down, up/downvote, like/dislike, agree/disagree, etc to comments/posts?

I feel like being able to directly like/dislike a comment or post would be great for getting the feel of how a post was received. It would be cool to view some of the most liked/disliked posts of the week, day, or month.

Most of the facebook reaction things would be cool, mostly I think Happy, sad, angry, and funny would be great.

Thanks again for the great work.

:thumbsup:

Seriously though, I like the idea of a basic (anonymous) up/down vote.

It's not a functionally that is natively supported by phpbb. If there is an extension that allows it then if be willing to look into it. I haven't seen anything though.

The old Scout.com board had something like a "like" and "dislike" button. But then all the glory hogs started posting crazy stuff just to get their likes up. Then it just got way too commercial.
