So... you may have noticed that your posts here now have 'Like' links on them!
[if you are a logged in paid up member]
The idea behind this is to offer folk the chance to:
- Credit specific posts rather than authors (points are only for authors, not for posts)
- Give people a chance to leave quick feedback (I like this post!) rather than having to write a reply
- Make this place a funner and more interesting place to hang out
- Integrate it (shortly) with a Facebook-style notification bar (i.e. you'll get notifications on that thread via a top bar rather than subscribing by email etc.)
When someone likes a post you've written you get an email - to prevent abuse this comes witha one-click unsubscribe option and also you get a maximum on one per/hour.
Also, when someone likes a post, their gravatar is then displayed, a la Tumblr, under the post itself.
Would love to know your feedback, ideas for improvement and all that jazz :slight_smile:
