Topic tags/keywords: like and reply tab question

Maybe its just me being about blind but I haven’t noticed this. I would like to see a “like” tab and a “reply” tab under each individual comment (sorta the way Facebook is set up. Each post being numbered helps some but it seems to me that this would be an easier way for members to reply on threads.

A lot of times I see a project or post I really like but don’t want to join in the conversation. Seems like a “like” tab would come in handy.

The quote button is the new piece that got us closest to reply. And like vs commenting has, in the past, been discounted as a way to not comment when the focus is commenting.

Not saying it can’t change, that’s the background as I recall it.

The “like” button provides little feedback and seems impersonal to me.

That’s my point, gfadvm, exactly.

Those were my reasons for NOT wanting a like button. But I guess you knew that.

I agree with G. “like” button would be too impersonal and vague. When I “like” or “dislike” something, I reply to the original poster and speak my mind. This is how humans share knowledge between each other. And this is what LumberJocks is about. And my “saved” section has over 300 items in it :)

How about a dislike button that gives the poster opportunity to PM the “dis-liker to find out why, privetly.
I get tired of reading how magnificent a pc of crap is.

The best dislike button is to quit reading how magnificent some thing is. That’s best thing about these forums, you only read what you want. Pretty simple really.

I would like a (sic) button to point out misspellings in threads. Highlight the word and hit the (sic) button.

What doesn’t make since to me is a time window that you can edit a comment, why a time limit at all? Why not just allow it all the time and any given time?

My guess is it’s an odd strategy to prevent a comment that has further replies from being edited. I’ve seen several forums where you can edit your comment until another is posted below it.
