If you have been wondering if there is a like button for this forum, there is something similar.
If you look in the lower right corner of the message you are reading, there is a green button with a white cross in it. It is called "Vote this post up".
When you click this button it adds another point to the Reputation of the member who responded to the message you are reading. You can view the Reputation of any member under the tab Members at the top.
Unlike the like button(Facebook version) you can not see who gave a person a vote.
Now it is time to vote for messages you like.

BTW, you can't vote for a message you sent.

"Like" or share buttons were incoporated into later versions of Invision forum software such as being used on Kitelife.

Is that format alright with everyone?

We can upgrade when Rev is ready, just a little work to get 'er done. ;)

Hi John...

Sounds good.

It's like FB, right? A convenient and quick way to let someone know that you saw their post and want to give a positive "nod".

You can see the like button in action here on Wayne's (stroke survivor) post...

And in addition, the newer forum version has links to "like" topics on Facebook and share it around the usual social circles. ;)

I like the idea of the "like" button; I click it when I read something informative or funny, however, I see it used in a number of topics more for popularity and friends than for good posts. Using the "like" button in this manner makes the "reputation" ranking not useful in my book.


I guess friendship is a good reason to click the like button on a post, but I think adding them as a friend to your profile pays homage enough.

So does the like button add to the poster's reputation? I notice the +1 button is gone.

At least for the present button, the answer is yes.

Correct, although reputation is overrated. :)
