  • Yeah really, I work long and hard to ignore the people that I ignore.

  • Again i go back to my point that it's unneeded. It's just seems it's not that important. Again just because there's no reply to your post does not mean no one read it. Also what will you say if people don't like your posts if we had this thing? Would you say to people ''Please like my posts''?

  • Also, it probably wouldn't be an option anyway. These forums are kind of a cobbled-together mess that are barely held together with the code equivalent of duct tape. Adding another plugin to the mix would probably be a bad idea at this stage. Hence the new site you guys heard about a while back.

    I like the idea were using a old broken cobbled together forum. Like the TARDIS!

  • the re-tardis if you will.

  • It would help if we had a eccentric Doctor-like programmer to traverse internet-time and cyberspace finding interesting tumblr pictures and fighting off spambots and malware.

    But we don't.

    Now I'm sad.

  • @GuruGuru214 said: Hey, I actually know what he was talking about. It's an add-on for VBulletin that pretty much functions just like Facebook's "like" or Google+'s "+1", except VBulletin calls it "thanks". Honestly, I'm not a fan of it.

    So it IS like Facebook's 'like' system... which he told me it wasn't.

  • It works like this, except that the "Thank You" button is missing.

    So it's actually like a "like" system, except more intrusive. Also, while searching for this image, I found out that it's actually a vBulletin hack and not an officially supported plugin.

  • Yeah it's almost like a non verbal response to the post.

  • I can see that having some use on computer support or torrent sharing forums, but I think it would be completely useless on these forums. In my opinion it would just create visual noise here. It's not as bad as the signatures you see on parenting forums, but it's bad nonetheless.
