Adding "Likes". What version phpBB are we on?

Post by DNA_Rower » January 31st, 2018, 8:58 am

Often I'd like to acknowledge a post without necessarily replying. A "Like" would be good for that.

I think a "Like/Thanks" option for phpBB is in some of the latest versions of the software. What version are we on here?

Maybe we could have a Forum software upgrade? I'm also thinking that with "Likes/Thanks" we would actually have less replies, and maybe the DB size growth would be decreased, which might save running costs.

We don't need no stinking Faceborg feechurs on here. What possible benefit does a like have?

phpBB3 is too far back-level anyway.

Well for instance in the "What Training Have You Done Today" thread, a lot of separate people have commented on my last post. It seems like unnecessary noise for me to then post to say thank you for their comments, but it feels ungrateful if I don't say anything. I think the "Thanks" button does well.

Not like I'm suggesting we bring in "Pokes" :P
