The whole forum should just be reduced to original posts and little buttons with meaningful smilies on them that cover all possible replies.

That way we don't have to actually discuss anything and everyone can feel popular.

A sympathy button is out of the question for me -- entirely too functional and efficient and pre-packaged.  Kinda like getting a gift certificate -- you have neither the imagination nor the interest to do something sincerely appreciative.  The "like" button is good as it prevents a bunch of "me too" messages, but we should post our own individual sympathy messages.

Correct me if I'm wrong but is it possible that some folk really enjoy having a choice in the number of people's buttons they can press? (double entendre intended). :whistle:

In you is hidden the treasure of treasures, Oh man, know thyself and you shall know the Universe and the Gods."

I think there should be a button that says "I like the first paragraph but disagree with the second" and  "I don't like what you've said but I understand and can sympathize" Those buttons could be called "Partial Like" and " :(".

the ranking part doesn't matter to me..

LOL

Buttons:

-1- I like the color of the fonts you use
-2- I don't like the color of the fonts you use
-3- What are you on?
-4- Do you have a text editor fail?
-5- I don't care what you write, I will always like you
-6- I don't care what you write, I will never like you
-7- I like the first paragraph but disagree with the second
-8- I dont like the first paragraph but agree with the second
-9- I like the fourth paragraph, but that's because it's raining here

......and so on...........

In other words: just post a reply.

There already is a button that does that.  It's called the "QUOTE" button and it allows you to put your feelings about another member's post into actual words, instead of relying on "LIKE" buttons, and smilies and other simplistic nonsense.  It allows you to break up a post into meaningful pieces and quote them individually and comment on each part and what you think of each individual part of the quote you responded to and then post the resultant combination of original post and your thoughts into a single post on the forum.

Try it some time.  It's amazing.  But it requires some extremely basic computer knowledge and the ability to compose intelligible thoughts in English.

Buttons are faster and yes I have tried "quoting" many times.. but truthfully I dont always feel like it or have the time. But I took the time to quote your post. :)  and I hope you either "like" it or quote me back...  :)

Is it not possible to reply to a post and retain some basic courtesy, rather than taking the snidely sarcastic approach?

A "like ranking" system would be entirely dependent on a release from Invision. To my knowledge none is available at this time.

I will set this to complete for the time being.
