"Like" or "Thanks" Feature

Post by Brent Deines » November 7th, 2012, 5:49 pm

It's been a long time coming but we finally have a new "Thanks" feature on the forum. It functions similarly to the "Like" button on Facebook and other social media formats that many of you are familiar with. If you see a post you can now "Thank" the forum member who made the post.

I'm still trying to figure out how the star rating works but I think that will become clear as soon as members start using the feature.

You may have noticed a few "Thanks" appearing and disappearing in the past couple of days. That was us running some tests before announcing the new feature. I believe we now have the bugs worked out but please let me know if you run into any problems or if you have suggestions for improvement.

To use the feature simply click on the thumbs up icon at the top right of the post you like.

"Thanks"

You won't see it in this topic because this is an announcement. If you look at any post in a regular topic it will appear as a thumbs up icon just to the right of the quote button.

Nope....no thumbs up button to the right of the quote button on any topic.
