    Yea, theres a package out there that can handle per post based "thanks" - I didn't install it back in the day because I had seen similar systems gamed on big-boards.

    I'll give it another look in about an hour and see if there are any potential issues with vbulletin4.

    Mixedgas dislikes this.

    We have a such a nice culture here, why do we need it?

    Reasons for it:

    I agree - 15 characters.

    Reasons against it:

    My post count is inadequate, I also agree but don't need to add 15 characters.

    I'm sure there are numerous other reasons for/against this but the simple examples I mentioned above were the first things to pop up.

    It wouldn't be called "like" - It would be called "thanks" - Basically someone clicks a button on the post and their "Thanks-ism" fuel tanks get another hit.

    I for one don't believe that this does anything *directly* to help the SNR here, it just moves the noise into a more condensed box.

    can we exchanges "likes" for "lattes" once we collect enough?

    suppose you're thinkin' about a plate o' shrimp. Suddenly someone'll say, like, plate, or shrimp, or plate o' shrimp out of the blue, no explanation. No point in lookin' for one, either. It's all part of a cosmic unconciousness.

    There's already the option to "rate this thread"... It doesn't get used a lot...

    I agree with Laserwizardry +1 But having discussed this earlier this afternoon I will stick with my original thoughts. A button that inserts "I agree - 15 characters." into the quick reply text box. For those with interest could pull all the data from PL and do a grouping of posts with "I agree - 15 characters." easy as pie! Cake on the other hand is a pain in the ass, well at least hand whipping butter cream frosting.
