    I'm torn on a "like" option. It's nice to get a shiny red notification that your post was liked and enjoyed by all (and really, feedback that it was read), but my guess is that could be a distraction in a big boy forum like this.

    On the other hand, being a bit of a lurker myself, there's so many knowledgeable posts that I'd like to give a quick tip of my hat to, some funny 'uns too. Instead of making a post "hey, what you just said, I really found it useful" and/or....

    Enough people have asked for it (a like button) that it's worth trying. I can't promise it's will always and forever be here. If it ends up being a distraction/nuisance we'll nuke it. At any rate it will give people something to complain (or compliment) about at this year's PFestivus.

    Perhaps you should start a poll.

    Yeah, it's easy to blow it off as a popularity contest feature, but I think it can be a good indicator that you're "doing it right" or not. I've helped implement it in other, more for funsies, forums and there's usually a mixed response to the idea (resistance to change and whatnot) but once done, few people really complain or care. Number of "likes" display can also be hidden until clicked on.

    Buuuut, I couldn't really say on this site as I'm on the fringe. Just follow your heart!!

    It might be a few weeks before it goes live, most likely with the new themes and branding (which will also include the much desired like/dislike buttons ).
    I did a cursory look and the code appears fine. All the database operations appear to properly sanitize data before touching the database. I am disappointed that despite modifying an existing table (it adds a few of columns) it doesn't have any uninstall code to cleanup after itself.

    I'll install it on my test vB instance later tonight and see how it works.

    It seems to work pretty well. I'll probably go ahead and add it to the production system tonight.

    ETA: I didn't test it with Tapatalk. I suspect it won't work there, but I may be pleasantly surprised.
