Re: The "Like" Button

I thought there used to be an 'agree' flag in amongst the smileys, unless I am thinking of another photographic forum.

Re: The "Like" Button

Maybe we need survey about what buttons should be available on the forum?

That is a good idea but we should wait until we know what is possible and what is on offer. There is no point in voting for the impossible.

It isn't impossible for a button to be removed or installed - as administrator I have done so myself on my own website.

If we must have a 'too busy button', then how about, "No Comment" !

Ideally it would be nice to have 'like, dislike, sad and laughing' buttons as on FB, and for the gallery some kind of scoring system, but I appreciate that could be difficult.

It might be easier if the forum allowed posts of fewer than ten characters so that we could post a number or a smiley without having to write about it.

There is a scoring system in the Gallery, you can rate a picture from 1 to 10 and add a comment if you wish.

Rhetorically, the answer to that question is, why did Admin do it in the first place.

You may not be surprised to learn that that thought did cross my mind as I was posting my comment.

Re: The "Like" Button

Well I have been through and "removed" all the "likes" and "thanks" I gave Mark going back 3 years odd on threads that he started, as that is all the advanced search allows.
Hopefully he appreciates it.

Obviously if I don't comment on/like/thank a post/photo it's because I think it is complete and utter rubbish and a waste of my valuable time viewing it. On the other hand I may not have actually seen it.

Then there are those utter lazy bast__rds who view posts and can't even be bothered to hit the like button.

Unbelievable.

Andrew, I am sorry that you have taken this thread so personally. I was not taking a shot at you or anyone else in particular.
I have never been bothered by the /like/thank a post/photo button when it is used to add gloss to an accompanying comment.
As I see it, a button is a mute response from one of "those utter lazy bast__rds who view posts and can't even be bothered to …." comment.
I know that we all do our best to post interesting if not brilliant images, such as yours, and I think they deserve more than an electronic acknowledgement.

Not at all, just amusing myself as I always do.

Re: The "Like" Button

Iím as guilty as the next person for over using Like, often for time reasons. This isnít a massively busy forum and some inspirational images get posted here. As such, I think taking the time to respond is important (though for me itís normally done in a marathon session, when I get a little time).

Re: The "Like" Button

I see you must have had "a little time" today, Jason! , I agree.
There are some threads/posts to which a button response is appropriate.
One such in particular is MJ224's post, http://e-group.uk.net/forum/showthread.php?t=50562, and of course some other public interest links.
