    The Like and Dislike system has been automatically added by the system software.

    At the moment you can like or dislike any post.

    At the moment a like will mean your username will be attached to that post.

    As far as I can tell there are no points or other indications to show whether a member has good posts or bad posts, it just seems to be a way of showing whether you like a particular post or not.

    In your notifications area you should be able to control whether you are notified if someone likes a post you posted or dislikes it.

    I will leave it on for a week or so to see how it goes.

    Do not misuse or abuse this system please.

    For now I will leave dislikes on but not displaying so if you dislike a post it wont reveal your username to prevent petty revenge activities... and as I said we will see how it goes.

    I suspect in a weeks time I may be turning off the ability to dislike a post, or I might be turning the whole thing off... obviously you will get a say and any thoughts you might have can be posted to this thread please.

    Please note that like and dislike are the default, so if you prefer we can change either to anything you like... they could be agree and disagree, or support and don't support, or even care and don't care...

    And on mobile it just causes clutter

    i think it would be better if it was positioned in down right corner and not left exactly after the text

    OK I just disliked my own post and liked the two replies we have received so far just as a test.

    Clearly it states I liked the posts that I liked and has a number one to record my dislike of the first post.

    Please note this is just me testing it... I don't really dislike the first post.

    Please continue to provide your views... there are no right or wrong posts... if you think it looks cluttered then by all means tell us and make us aware of this.

    Thanks George... I will have a look in the scripting to see if I can change the position of the buttons to the right hand side of the page.

    Also... try it and take the time to see if you get used to it. Feel free to post opinions here about it but also feel free to post again in a couple of days time... is it still great or is it still annoying.

    As I said I will look at the code to see if I can shift the buttons to the right of the text box and we can see if that helps too.

    On another thread where I had previously liked a photo post I tried liking it again but instead of two likes it disabled my previous like so I didn't like it any more and my username was no longer underneath it showing I liked it.

    I then tried to dislike it and it added a number one for dislike.

    When I tried to dislike it a second time it also removed the dislike...

    So the buttons like and dislike are simply toggles... on and off.

    Means you can change your mind, and also means you can't just troll and put 100 dislikes on one post. or Fanboy yourself and give yourself 100 likes per post.

    (Have repeated) Will repeat this info in the thread on likes and dislikes.

    I had a look at the section where I control the like dislike feature and it is not obvious as to how I can shift it but it should be possible.

    I personally like this feature, since often you like one post, without necessarily having much to add to it, or simple appreciate somebody linking some nice picture or interesting news for our common interest. This gives some easy way to let those who contribute know their efforts are appreciated.

    For my part I really appreciate this new feature and totally agree with @LMFS.
    Not all the time would someone have something to add but would want to show gratitude/support for a particular post as being positively useful or informative. Hope it continues and doesn't result in any negative issues. I would agree with George as well about the placement of the boxes. Anyway, Cheers!

    Giving some feedback: I like this option, I missed it when it stopped some years ago, and I am used to it from other forum.
    What I think could change is the place where it appears and especially the notifications, that I personally don't like.
    Because I like a lot of posts if the place don't change you will get my username in your head all day. Very Happy

    I already said this before but I think both likes and dislikes should be owned by the people making them. Anonymous dislikes are for anonymous cowards
    and trolls.
