Re: New forum suggestions/Feedback

Indeed. It's tempting to inspect some interesting points about what value is added to forums by repetitive quasi-Like content such as "+1"; or by individuals aggressively gatekeeping topics by reposting the same reconfigured point over and over to everybody opposed; or the hypocrisy in the way …

I don't agree with the criticism of the Like button. But it's not important enough for me die on a hill for. I can definitely live without it. :) I like to think we all prefer to stay away from said hill :) On top of what I previously mentioned here: this site has a very nice retro-look to it, …

What's needed is a new sections of vogons where "Likes" are implemented, then all you who fancy it can …

If one truly appreciates a post, why not set aside the time and actually reply to it properly? Take the 'bought this stuff today' thread - I really like seeing what people find and I know from experience that taking decent photos and posting them takes time so I want to say 'thanks for the effort', …

IIRC, likes has been rejected because of the way that it changes the nature of a board. Things work well already and introducing likes would have a profound effect and would also piss off a lot of the established technical base here. Just the risk of losing important forum members is a good enough …
