"Liking" posts?

Unread post by ash2fpga »

Maybe I am mixing up phpbb and vbulletin -- if phpbb has a way to add "liking" a post, any thoughts on adding it?

I don't particularly like posting "I like this" or "me too", but don't mind "liking" a post (e.g., somewhat similar to an "upvote" on a feature request).

I'd rather people voice their opinion than just give "good points" as if this were kindergarten.

phpBB does not have this feature as standard. However I am sure an extension exists to fulfil this requirement. Personally I don't see much benefit, but it's open for discussion on implementation.

True, I do see it "abused" on some forums. I've noticed certain posters would almost always get "liked" by the same group of users, regardless of if the post was useful or not.

Facebook is for likes.
MiSTer is for MiSTer FPGA discussion.
