    Should we have a 'like' button in Forums?

    Does any of you think we should have a 'like' button against each thread / reply?

    (My first day into Ubuntu and Ubuntu Forums is AMAZING!!!

    Been going through various number of threads and each one more interesting than the other!

    I have been wondering, if I have been wasting away my time on FB all this while getting involved in useless discussions while the 'real' Social Networking is here!!! (i know it's debatable ) )

    IIRC it was removed because it caused additional database load for very little benefits.

    While I think I agree, can I ask you what happens if it is a recurring thread and how does one mark it as recurring thread? And what happens to a recurring thread? No one can see it again, perhaps?
    ( You'd prolly mark this also a recurring discussion and show me a link! But I'd appreciate that too )

    That's a horrible idea. You may be surprised, but not everyone spends time on facebook.

    What often happens is that a staff member moves the thread to Recurring Discussions

    I think a poll on this might help. (whether you feel a like button is necessary)

    Its not necessary, but it would be nice. If it won't jumble up the code of the forum too much.
