    +1 And you can't reply with just '+1' but I understand the rationale. I could use a text expander for a thumb's up but a Like is quick.

    I'm not a fan of the 'Dislike' and a lot of sites are moving away from it. I think if you dislike a post enough to post anything to that effect you should explain why in the form of counterpoint.
    Don't tell me what I know. Tell me what I don't know.

    This just makes it more work to keep checking and clearing the notifications to see if its an important message, a quote, or just a like etc.
    This ain't Facebook, and I'm not a teenage girl (but I do love this little laughing guy)

    In your Settings/General Settings section - there is a "Notification for new "Likes" to your posts?" setting, un-check the box that says "Receive Notifications"

    I have a secret for you: Forums like this one are, by definition, social media.

    I'm actually glad Joe's trying this out because it serves two useful purposes:

    1. It cuts back on the number of one-line "I like that" posts after somebody posts something useful and keeps the discussion on-topic. Not that it's a huge problem, but it saves a little bit of time for everyone reading the forum and a bit more for the moderators, because we read pretty much everything that gets posted.

    2. It can be used to identify threads worth keeping when the time comes to purge the old stuff. Whether or not Joe will use it that way is up to him, but there are questions I know I've answered three or four times in the last twelve years because the thread where I wrote the first version got sent to the bit bucket.

    Unlike Facebook or Google; we're not in the business of selling your eyeballs to advertisers hawking airplanes and treadmills because you liked a post in that thread. Lots of new features have been tried here; some stuck and were kept and others didn't and were canned.

    Serious question: Would your opinion be any different if it was a "that's useful information" button?

    Re: How do you LIKE me now?

    I have been involved with ST social media since the days of the mailing list. That has been about 20 years ago. The mailing list was very helpful but not real effective when it came to maintaining information. The forum has helped by keeping information searchable instead of the same questions recirculating every couple of months. Although there are many that don't search first.

    My issue with this forum now is that it has become more of a social media site, and less of a information gathering and sharing site. I have made many friends on this forum and been to several STOC events because of the social side of this forum, but as the community grows the desire to chime in with little or useless knowledge of the facts has grown.

    The fact the there isn't much new to discuss related to the main subject of this forum probably doesn't help. I haven't seem many new farkles show up that haven't been done before, although is still my first place to go when I need help. And there are still many here that know allot about the workings of the ST.

    I'm sure the LIKE button works for those that feel the need to be counted. For me, if I can add something helpful I will, if not I just move on.

    Thanks Joe. I'm more likely to use this now, not that I'm likely to get a swarm of likes.

    Are you going to keep a tally of Like & Dislike between states? Say perhaps California and Florida
    Just joking
