    Default Like button

    While I' thinking about it:
    Would anybody else prefer to change the "Like" button to "Agree", and add a "Disagree" button?
    I suggest the "Disagree" button to be anonymous, only showing the count, not the names.

    How about an ignore button?

    Agreed on all accounts, and the Ignore button could say "I recommend ignoring this post" or something like that, to let readers know why the Ignore is there.

    I think the like button is good enough on its own. To like a comment is to basically agree with it in my opinion.

    I'm not crazy about the idea of dislike or ignore buttons. It gives people an easy way to dis others. This is a social media atmosphere here. Encouraging disrespect is a bad thing in my opinion.

    Don't get me wrong now. To disagree is completely acceptable. When you think you need to do that, put some words together and be respectful and direct.

    I like the single "Like" button we have now. If we add a bunch of buttons folks will stop commenting and we learn a bunch from some(not all) of the comments...

    Thumbs up Re: Like button

    Along with the "Like" you also have the option to "Rate"

    And don't forget "Share" (right next to the Like). Any good information you see you should be Sharing on facebook. This is automatic content for your facebook page so you do not have to think of new things to post there. Make it a point to Share one post a day.

    Has the "Rate this thread" always been there?
    I would prefer to "rate this post"

    Yes, it has always been there since this new board went live. It's just one of those little features you may not have noticed.

    When you rate a thread the rating (stars) will show up in this view

    I will see if I can get the ratings to show up in the "New Post" section as well and at the top of the thread itself.

    "Rate This Thread" is above the first post on the right hand side.

    Okay, see it. I was thinking of Rate this Post instead of Rate this thread as there are many posts in threads which could make the thread rate good, yet have a few posts which should be derated or rated as poor.

    Is there a "Rate this Post"? I think that is what I think was being proposed.

    I frequent many forums.
    "Like" is common for all things good.
    "Rate" is also found on many forums.
    "Dislike" or any negative indicator should have NOT BE ANONYMOUS.
    One can always view the number of posts, and the number of likes for a poster and make their own judgements.
