Re: Should we add a "like" feature to the forum?

by marurun Fri Dec 25, 2020 10:30 am

One other forum I am on has the ability to like posts (just says who liked it and stores the info on a per-post basis). There’s no reputation system or karma or anything. And liking isn’t anonymous. It’s also not very frequently used, interestingly enough. But I agree. If there are ways to incentivize posting that’s the way to go.

That's how Doomworld works and it seems to be fine.

Yeah, there's a forum I browse that has a like system similar to that as well and it works ok. Strangely tho, people there give likes AND reply. Here, we have a situation where people are reading but not posting. Adding a like feature wouldn't help with that, in fact it may make it worse.
