Would it be possible to implement a function to vote up (or like for the lack of a better term) people's posts?

There are times where i want to show support for peoples posts, but don't want to flood the thread with an un-necessary post.

I don't like that idea. I think that +1 posts while a bit of a waste of space show the progression of a thread.

I guess you could mark one of the posts as "most favoured reply" in a different colour...

I have used other forums and found the "likes" quite a nice quick way to show support to fellow forum member's posts. 

Having different coloured forum posts would be too "busy" and confusing.  You could end up with a thread full of various colours that at a glance would mean nothing.

What about a "thanks" button or something like that..

Then you have a "thanks" count on your profile thing

And then you can have "thanks" badges

The benefits are endless!

I like the idea. But it's true, they do have some weird effect that a simple number would not have..

How about a 'reputation' score?

None of these ideas are new. I have talked about this with RedJungle for a while. The one I like most is the reputation score, based on number of contributions that are recognised by the community with use of "+1" buttons.

Maybe also set it so you could view a threshold, ie in a thread, only view all replies with at least 3 +1s.

Just don't make that the default or nobody would see anything :)


I'd like to see a system where we can +1 things but the comments still stay in chronological order
