Add a "Like" button for comments, just like in facebook.


Specifics/Details:
  • Every post will have a "Like" button, just like the "Quote" button.
  • It would say something like "X,Y and Z like this." at the bottom of the post.

How this will benefit the site and/or other comments:
  • No need to type too much to express you agree

Here's how to do it.

This is not my code, somebody did it already re-using the code for a similar function and modifying a bit.

Everything is there.

Like, "Army of GOD thinks this suggestion is shit"

I could agree for a thumbs up/down or +1/-1 for threads, but not for individual posts.

Even though I would never use it because it's a terrible suggestion, considering the code is already written and it has the opportunity to get rid of spam posts, this is a no-brainer.

exactly. those who dont like it can ignore it. maybe have an option in the CP where you can turn off seeing the likes/ +1-1 ratings, so that you can see it if you want.

It would reduce spam
the code is written
even people who dont like the idea want it implemented.

I don't really care for the suggestion. But if Vodean (above) is right and it is already coded for phpbb or whatever it is called, who cares? I don't really like it when someone quotes 4 paragraphs of text just to write "+1"
