    Default We need something like a like system

    I know people like god will instantly rail against this for bein TOO FACEBOOKY but it would be a cool thing to have. I don't mean gay shit like reputation which is 'anonymous' and is meant to be an indicator of quality but is instead abused by people to give their butt buddies more green squares. I mean something that only shows up on posts that a user makes and not on a user's profile so that beneath a person's post if would be written 'x, y and z like this post'. Posting a 'haha' or a 'i enjoyed this post' after every post I like is tedious and lame and this would be preferable. Back on vglan we had a 'thanks' plugin that people used to 'thank' others for making good posts and it worked rather well.

    In retrospect I should've posted this in Dogar's thread but who even goes to 'Pokedream Forums Discussion'?

    If we have a like option, we also need a dislike option to make it fair.

    i still think that the only reason everyone thinks that 'like' buttons should be everywhere is because of Facebook. if I really enjoy a post I'll quote it and say 'haha' or something but admittedly I haven't done this recently

    No, it would cause unnecessary drama.

    Posting "ha" and "lol" makes up a good majority of my post count, I visously disagree with this movement.

    That's why I removed negative reputation on Cosmo.

    VGLan got the thanks system way before Facebook had likes and I thought it was a good idea since then SO YOUR HYPOTHESIS IS INCORRECT.

    things can still exist without people thinking they should be ubiquitous. there is a precusor to every sort of system e.g. the Egyptians having primitive birth control

    I don't really mind saying 'haha' after funny posts. It's how I express the pleasure I get reading certain non-funny posts in a manner that isn't gay that is the dilemma.

    another reason why I'm opposed to this: i left Facebook, and PD has become a better Facebook for me, a place I go to when I want to sit there idly on the internet, and I want to avoid it as much as possible. Thus, you should not do this in order to cater exclusively to me.

    Rocket science is pretty easy to be honest.

    Maybe it'll resonate better with god if I put it in list form.

    Top two most incompetent administrators on PD:
    1. God
    2. weicool
