Thread: "Like" functionality: have your vote.

    Default "Like" functionality: have your vote.

    This has appeared after I upgraded the board SEO software. There is an option for me to disable it, so do we want it or not?

    I (a casual/new user) would say leave it two days then get rid of it. The 'like' threads are pretty entertaining at the moment.

    i didn't vote because i don't mind either way. i don't really look at the 'likes' but they're not in my way or offensive either, so if enough people want them, leave them.

    Burn it with fire! They're distracting and the concept is stupid.

    Like I said, the concept isn’t necessarily bad and would be quite useful in Applying etc. but they look pretty crappy right now, it would need tweaking visually.

    Voting against it. I think that having an automated system for agreeing with someone will make people lazy and they won't bother to post as much. If you agree with someone just make a post!

    The concept is bad. Tarquin also loves the concept of assless chaps on men.

    I'm with Mothy on the fact the concept is bad. If people like something, they can make a comment.

    I can see good points and bad points, but if they stay they need to be made less intrusive.

    Scrotty, it's "dirtbag" not "Dirtbag". please correct this or i will schedule a meeting with the ITIL Spokesperson about seeking e-restitution(s).
