For me, thanks is for the user's street cred, like is for the post's street cred. So pretty much, if a user is being helpful, they will get a thanks, if the users post goes a long way towards answering the question at hand, I'll give a thanks and a like.

The "Like" and "Thanks" features | buttons are optional. Choose either one or both (for that matter) depending on the circumstance. It's just that simple.

Most times I use Tapatalk and the Phandroid app.

So, it would be nice when the Phandroid would have the option to give a Like

The option to "like" a member post or thread is now becoming the norm on a few forums. I'm looking forward to seeing what other new and exciting features will be implemented. ♥

Smile Here's hoping this topic doesn't drift off into the sea of uncertainty.

Here's my take on this matter...

1.) Placing a "likes" received under the "thanked" posts would be nice (now that its being use quite frequently).

2.) Personally, I've always wanted the option of choosing either one or both buttons ("like or thanks") when needed. √

3.) I don't think that most members are even aware of the "like" button because of where its position. If the decision is made to keep this feature _ I would suggest placing it alongside the other buttons below.

4.) If its possible, could the like notification be disabled/enabled? Why? (Reason): I don't want to assume that the notification on my profile is indeed a confirmation from a liked post and not a private message or a friend request. シ

Overall, this is a great idea and marked the beginning of an era.

^^^ Yes! Since becoming a Guide and PMing a lot of folks for thread moves, I'd like to only have notifications for PMs and not for Thanks.
Can this feature be added?

One option, I understand, is to import all the Thanks from the thanks system into the Likes system. That way Steven's pride could stay intact!

Nah, lets all restart on an even playing field.

Seriously, I think the colorful aspect like when a bunch of staff thanks particular posts is an important thing to consider. Likes are all blue where thanks are color coded. A nitwit post thanked by a bunch of spammers looks as good as a rockstar post thanked by the entire staff.

Would there be a way to just combine the numbers in statistics?

Likes/Thanks: xxx
Liked/Thanked: xxx times

They could be sorted separately in the profile page if that is wanted, but combined under the avatar on the left side?


Also do any of the site reading/posting apps (phandroid/tapatalk/forum runner) make it possible to "like"? That's still my biggest negative to this whole thing.

Good point AC13, neither forum runner or TT support the likes thing but both support thanks.

edit: meant to quote Phases post about Steven keeping his pride, will edit that post.

Default Like messing with screen rendering?

It appears that when a thread has reached triple digit likes that it messes up the rendering on the right side of the screen.

Today the thanks button in Tapatalk has disappeared ... for this forum.
And all thanks in the posts are disappeared too.

Has this something to do with the new Likes system?

In other forums Tapatalk shows the thanks button further.

No, it's an issue that has popped up since the outage this morning, it's been brought up in a separate thread in here.

Thumbs up I'm loving the enhancement... thus far.

I love the new look so far. Hopefully we'll see the "like" button being placed amongst the other buttons below.

I would like to see that implemented as well. It would be a nice addition.
Lake George is our yearly family vaca spot. I have to admit that I think of you every time we see a Mass plate. Although you are much friendlier than the ones we've met.

It is also awesome to see post formatting much improved with the new forum plugin (lists included). I'll continue the Lake George conversation to the Watering Hole.

Yes please. I like that I can choose whether I like or thank a post.

I see it as the other way round actually. When it was a thanks-only system, I wasn't sure whether to thank a post sometimes because it wasn't necessarily a 'useful' post, even though I liked it.

I have noticed posts receiving lots of 'likes' when they are funny, or have a 'street cred' appeal, but are not in any way 'useful' - unless bringing cheer to people and making the world a more pleasant/interesting place can be considered useful. Of course it can, but you can see why a thank you is more appropriate for a post which offers technical solutions and is helpful.

I think being able to discriminate how I feel about a post and respond appropriately is close to an ideal system. I like having both options.

Sometimes I will like AND thank. I agree though, that it would be good if we could also sort threads by thanks - as thanked posts are supposed to be 'useful'.

Yes. I believe I thanked and liked this post. I will probably be liking useful posts more than I have been now that I know they can be sorted. But I will also thank them.

Thank you. I like that.

Same here. Please do not get rid of the thanks.

How about removing the "Thanks" from under member's avatars & replacing it w/ the number of times they have been "Liked" ?

For right-on help, the Thanks button is on the right of the post.
For anything out in left field, the /!\ report button is to the left.

Remember, it's our forums and we're all in this together - so let's keep it cool!

Shoot the breeze at the best new gun forum!

There. A perfect example of a thanks AND like post. Thanks because it was relevant to the discussion. Like because of its good-natured humour.

Those quoted statistics kind of speak for themselves. But hell you're doing ok with the likes since they've only been in operation for like a month.

Is there any movement on disabling notifications for "likes"?
Myself and a lot of other staff get many PMs and I'd rather just be notified for those and not necessarily likes.

Ohhhhh, I misunderstood (not hard to make happen this week). I thought you meant notified in an email. I do see those notifications.
