    Re: Why no 'Like' button on threads

    Personally I would use a “like” button on the image threads. Often I see an image which I think is striking, but I neither want to clutter an image thread with text posts saying so, nor do I want to essentially add a critique unless the poster has asked for one. A button would avoid those issues. But I also understand Oren’s point that we don’t need custom modifications to the software supporting the site.

    That's my thinking... for images... and with a 'Dislike' button too! If I dont like your 'words', and it's worth the time, rest assured, I'll tell you.

    I asked the same question on PhotoTrio a few years ago and got flamed. Maybe a "Dislike" button would have been better suited to that forum....

    I would not like a thumbs up option without a thumbs down option, but prefer to have neither.

    You don't really need a dislike button. A lack of likes will tell you the same thing in a gentler way. If you have 50 views and no likes you know that your image and the viewers aren't connecting.
