I have occasionally wished for the 'Like' button option after reading a good post, but to be honest the only benefit it offers is the sense of satisfaction from clicking a button.

As I write mainly in vocal threads, I often feel my efforts are ignored. I don't think I want outright confirmation of that if a 'like' button was to be added. I prefer to imagine that perhaps the material is being read and enjoyed but just not provoking any feedback.

Thank you Karl. There is lots I read and enjoy, but If I don't think I have anything even mildly interesting to add, I stay silent and the writer never then knows how much I appreciate their efforts.

If the software does ever allow a Like button (for posts, not members), we need an additional, specialized button: This Post Is Hazardous to Your Budget.

The button would look like a dollar sign.   ( $ )

I used the like button on Facebook but I honestly don't want here because GMG isn't Facebook. I'm not really down with all of these advancements on this forum concerning social media. The last addition I enjoyed from this forum was the ASIN function from Amazon. I think it's one of GMG's most useful tools.

I underestimated the community character of this forum. I didn't consider that. A like button doesn't support this, on the contrary, rather destroys it.

However we want to keep valuable posts. I think it would be better, if somebody wants to say something, something essayistic, let him/her write an article. It can be posted on the front of the website.

It also provides the opportunity to support the forum! :D
