    I like the idea of a Dis-Like button.

    I think it's ok, but there should be a way to thank an individual post. This is the most obvious thing. You post a question, somebody answers it, and you can't thank the person for the answer. Very strange! lol....

    But it's ok, no big deal, I mean, not the end of the world or the beginning of a new era or anything. Like or no like, I like. :D

    the "like" system is a merchants wet dream. every time someoen likes something its value goes up, but one cannot have a negative opinion. one cannot 'dislike" something. therefore either people like it or they have no opinion. a merchants dream all the likes promo it and nothign bad can come back at you. facebook was pretty smart.

    I disagree. Treat something you dislike as you would any other thread that gets under your skin....click elsewhere. You still have the option of disagreeing/disliking a post or a thread, but you have to spell it out in a post.

    Simply clicking a dislike button is a trollers wet dream.

    Or just quote an opinion as "dislike" will probably serve in the same way

    I've been wondering why we can't have a "hate" button as well. I'll certainly settle for a "screwdriver"

    I've noticed this too.....I go to change the page and instead I get the "like" summary. The work around is to scroll down, and use the page numbers on the bottom.

    It would be best to simply move the "likes" summary to the other side of the screen.

    Alex said he changed it as we were all having that problem. It works fine for me now. Are you using an iphone or something that makes it still do this?

    Appears to be fine now, thanks. I just hadn't tried it lately...just got used to the workaround.

    I don't mind this like system but do I really need to receive a notification every time somebody likes one of my posts? It's a little annoying. Anyway to disable that, Alex?

    I think the thanks is a better idea, but I never used it. At first I didn't like the "Like" but I've grown on it, it's nice to be able to just like something sometimes that is a few pages back rather than just say "Nice, killer top" or something like that.

    This is in the works. Will let you and others know when that option becomes available via their CP.

    I think it would be fun to see who has the most likes. Either that or add them under their name the way 'thanks' were.

    Dont some message boards use a "karma" system that basically averages the likes and dislikes and the thanks and no thanks?

    Might be something cool to try out..
