    What is the point of a “Like” button?

    Truthfully, I don’t understand the concept or reason. I see we have it here but no one is using it.

    I guess its just to acknowledge you like something, without actually leaving a comment. Austin pretty much said use it, or don't.

      I think we should replace it with the quote button. And replace the ellipsis for the quote button with a multi quote button.

            when people multi quote and then say 'this'. thats where i see a like button being useful. dont need to make a whole post that says that you like or agree whats said.


            also, when a question is asked that has different solutions. the op could easily look at what reply is most favored.


            those are just the first 2 that come to mind, over all i think a like button is a good addition

                        Copied from another thread .......

                        What it’s really for… Clicking ‘Like’ is how user’s reputation bar (white bar under username) fills up and I hope people find that useful when the tech grows around here.

                        If I was like, “I just put this motor in, it wont start and its backfiring out of the carb. I’m 100% sure the plug wires are in the right order”
                        And somebody with little-to-no rep says “well you’re an idiot, they are out of order”
                        And somebody with a high rep says “you’re 180 out”

                        …. I’m going to try that 2nd guy’s suggestions first. Lame example but you get the point.

                        It will also be useful for vendor giveaways in the near future….. They could be like “Post your rig doing XYZ, and the one with the most likes wins”

                        And it’s because of this ^^^ …… I only enabled it for premium memberships. It prevents somebody from getting their non-wheel’n friends to sign up and vote or for them to make a dozen accounts to vote. Not that any of us would do that The crowd is small enough I can keep an eye on that kind of stuff for a while so I turned it back on for everybody.

                        If you don't like it ... dont use it.

                            Click on the like button, it will switch over to unlike

                              that would be an "undo like" button. Some people want to be able to dislike it before having to like it to begin with. There are a lot of posts that need a negative number of likes
