Many posts have much banter, or pics of excellent boats etc When everyone then makes a post just to say "looking good" etc the thread extends v quickly.
On facebook. There is the word in small font, like and dislike. If someone clicks it a simple small hand icon with an upward or downward respectively, hand with thumb appears. It indicates you like or dislike and has a number icon on it to show how many have clicked it if more than one. If you hover over it you can see which members clicked it.
Its only a small icon and could sit at the side of each post. Perhaps this one?
Its better than the facebook one.
Just an idea.
If anyone else likes this idea....... well you will have to post below
