    I "Like" the post because it was quite witty and made me laugh, but I do not consider it to be a "useful post" that it would be appropriate to say Thanks for.
    Yourself along with a few others here seem to be set against having a Like option, but I can guarantee it would be used just as much, if not more than Thanks.
    As I said it is simply about providing a choice of appropriate acknowledgement.
    Most other forum sites offer both options.

    If you view the forum on Tapatalk, the thanks that a post receives are displayed as a heart with a number next to it. How would that make you feel?

    I don't use Tapatalk and have no plans to ever use it, so the question is not relevant to me.
    Is this an important thing that Tapatalk users value, which would in some way be detrimental to them if a Like option was introduced and used more than Thanks?
    Is this the reason why some people here are against the introduction of a Like option?
    I am just trying to understand peoples position on this.

    Well, you come to the forum, have 11 posts at last count (most of them related to this), don't know the audience, etc. Why change something that isn't broken? Is a `Like` button somehow a requirement? This isn't FB.

    Absolutely not, itís never worried me enough to even think about it to be honest. I was merely pointing out the different format that they are presented in when using the app.

    To be honest its not really a big deal.
    I am just putting forward a suggestion and countering what people say with well thought out and polite discussion.
    I think this forum is the odd one out so to speak in not having a Like button.

    I'm sorry I didn't realise my member status had anything to do with permission to ask certain questions. If nobody had replied I wouldn't have made another post on the subject.
    As a new member to this particular forum I maybe have a fresher perspective than people who have been here for years.
    As I said before this has nothing to do with facebook in my opinion.
    I do apologise though, I will try to toe the line in future.
