Forum request: Like button
« on: September 22, 2019, 03:17:55 PM »
I would like a like button (+1 button) for the forum.

I recently created a tapatalk forum for my local homebrew club. It has a like button by default. It’s nice. I’m lazy and sometimes just want to thumbs up a post but don’t have anything to write.

I'd rather have questions I can't answer than answers I can't question.

Yeah, I'd like it too, but I don't think this forum software supports it.  I know the AHA is planning some forum improvements so I'll put in your request.  No idea if it's possible, but might as well get it on the list.

The world will become a much more pleasant place to live when each and every one of us realizes that we are all idiots.

The BeerSmith Forum use to have a button called “Kudos”.  Which I really liked.  It gave readers an idea into the value of a contributors posts.  The kudos number would build and would follow the contributors screen name.  So, in other words, if the Kudos number was high (thumbs up 👍🏼), a reader would get the idea that the contributors offering(s) is more than likely factual and useful.  The problem they had, however, was the kudos number could also go down (thumbs down 👎🏼) into negative territory.  Which is what happened to a newb who chose to blast other contributors, poke fun at posts and was outright rude.  The result: Brad removed the kudos system from the forum because this newb pestered Brad about their negative kudos.  The BeerSmith forum runs on the exact same software as this forum, or at least it did - haven’t been there in a long time.
