Hi boomers I bet everyone would agree with me on this and I've never seen anyone mention this in any thread. How cool would it be if we can have a LIKE button instead of posting back to a lot of threads. Don't u guys agree it should definitely be an added feature to the forums. I'm actually shocked SC doesn't already have this feature. It should be like FAcebook where anyone can like and u can see how many likes that thread or post gets getting good feedback or maybe like utube where there is a LIKE and DISLIKE button.
 If u agree with me on this then post a comment with the reply,  LIKE
 lets aim for 1000 likes to show SC we really want this added feature

I think the problem is that a lot of forumers would hit like instead of posting making the forum less active than it currently is. Dont mind the idea but dont think it would be a good idea if SC want an active forum.
 
 Based on this i will hit "Dislike".
 
 PS: Maybe I should "Like" because instead of typing all these words I would have hit "Dislike" and saved time but then that would be the problem for the forum.

It's an option in vBulletin, and we use it in the car detailing forums I frequent....
 
 I LIKE the option myself.

There was a 'Rate this thread' feature present a long time back. They removed it a few months ago.
 
  I had loads of 5 star threads :-D

Lol. I totally forgot about that.
 
 Maybe SC got rid of it because they felt sorry for TBonex's zero star threads.

Previously there was a thread rating option and this was a really great option especially in the task force recruitment to troll other tf recruitment threads by rating them 0/5 to make them less appealing.
 
 I dislike this idea already.

The rate this thread option was removed as a 5 star rating didn't necessarily indicate a quality thread.
 
 people should aim for quality posts, not one that will make them popular. Besides which, there's not usually 1000 people viewing the BB forums at any one time  - let alone Registered and posting on the forums.

Thread Rating was not a true forum feature but a honeypot to catch posters who were clearly under 13 and hence breaking TOS. Eventually they felt having 2 honeypot features might corrupt the data so they kept polls but got rid of the thread rating.

Been on the EVE forums for years, and adds nothing.  You can farm likes by posting stuff that is popular in the suitable threads.  You can post completely contrary stuff and still farm likes, so long as you choose the right threads with the right groupthinks happening.

LIKE feature on forum is ruled out.
 
 It is not necessary and is more likely to be abused.

I remember that. In 2014 when my old forum account got banned.
