need a LIKE button.
« on: February 12, 2021, 06:18:26 AM »
Would like to see a Like button and or something to point you in the right direction to see that your post has been viewed or quoted. Often times I forget where I had posted a topic so I have to do a long scroll to find where I posted last just to see if anybody was interested or viewed my post.

Click on "New Replies to your Posts" right under your username. Takes you right there.
The software on the forum currently allows for "karma" (good/bad) which can be altered to say like/dislike, I suppose. But we had a poll a number of years back in which forum members were asked to vote on that, at one longtime member's request to remove it (he said it was too much like Facebook and a juvenile high school popularity contest). The forum members agreed so we ditched it. Besides, most members that view your thread either like it or don't but won't leave feedback either way. If you like, we can put it to a vote again? You guys tell me...it's your forum.

Thanks for pointing out to me how I can view the replies to my posts. That is easy.

Furthermore, if you go into your profile (notifications) you can have the software email you any time someone replies to a post you have made or a topic you are subscribed to. Default setting is "off" but very simple to turn on. If you wish to use this option and need help with it shoot me a PM.
