I enabled a new feature that will allow you to "Like" a post (very similar to the "Like" or "+1" features of other social media sites).
Hopefully this will help cut down on the terse one-liner "great pizza" type of posts which clutter up the forum.
Let me know how you "like" this mod.
Steve, hitting the LIKE button to me is kinda like sending an anonomous letter. It kinda takes any personal recognition away from the community. If I get a like to one of my posts, I really don't know who sent it? I may be able to search out that info, but I probably won't. During the course of our membership here, I would assume that there are friendships made, even if we never actually meet the members in person. The like button takes the family association away for me.
I understand you want to "cut down on the terse one-liner "great pizza" type of posts which clutter up the forum", but is that reference really "terse"?
In the past there have been occasional attempts, IMHO, to try to disuade folks from becoming too chummy and social on this forum and perhaps that is a legitimate point of view to some members or administrators, but to what effect?
Our lives on a day to day basis have already become mostly invisiable with much social media and nameless posts, I for one, like the more personal posts where I know who repied to my post and those I reply to can know it was me.
Thank you for hearing me out in perhaps a dissenting POV.
