I searched and did not find anything on this but I think it would be a great improvement to the site to have a “Like” button for projects. There are a lot of times I don’t really have enough to say to warrant posting a comment but I really like a project someone has done. Is this something the moderators could add?

I use the FAVORITE button like the LIKE button on FB. Not only do I like it, I add it to my list of favorite projects and can go back and look in my FAVORITE bucket if I want to revisit that project.

True that is an option; however, I use the favorite button more for projects I would like to one day build myself

No. Though I know many comments are perfunctory, I think that button would further diminish the input from others. It would just be too easy to click it and move on. If you like something, just say so and maybe explain why. It’s not really that difficult or time consuming.

We discussed this at one point a few years back. The vast majority voted NOT to have a like button, so you are gonna have to do it the old fashioned way, and just tell them. (grin)

As far as projects, you can use the favorites option to express your like for it.

“Very nice” is a good alternative to tapping a Like button.

I’m still of the same opinion, but it’s not so very hard to live without it.

Maybe it’s just me, but I like to read others comments. What people like about a specific project, or questions they have on a project. I think it’s interesting to see the different tastes people have. I feel like I have even gotten to know some of you a bit just by your comments.

I completely agree with this and enjoy answering any questions and getting feedback on projects I have posted. Sometimes i just don’t have anything to say but really like someone’s project so I end up with a comment of “nice” or “looks great”. Just wonder if more people would be inclined to leave a response if it was as simple as a “like” button

I follow a forum for one of my two favorite college football teams that has a like button and there is no shortage of commentary on it. Many posters will “like” a another’s reply to show agreement and then still make their own response. Another use is acknowledging someone responding to your question, kind of like a thank you.

Sounds like many LJ’ers believe it to be broke…Whether admins can and are willing to fix it is another question.

If it aint broke don t fix it!
