    .... why not give BC merchandise (T-shirt, etc) for every, say, 100 "Like" gained? :):p
    JK.

    How about it, dear mod?
    (although I have a feeling if it's implemented, it's gonna be "abused" somehow)

    If there would be one here is an oppotunity to use it :p

    Not necessary in a forum.

    we implemented something similar before and it was abused by members then. from that experience, it looks like a pretty bad idea.

    let's focus on the positive feedback instead of the negative. :)

    Even facebook do not have this function, therefore I don't think BC will have it either ;)

    For one, it can cause flame wars since we can see who are the ones who clicked on the button.

    There used to be a "karma" system before the like button appeared (cmiiw) which is what Kwun is likely referring to. Never really understood what the purpose was or paid much attention to it though ... was gone before we knew it as well :D.

    If there is one, the time it takes to click on a 'dislike' button is just about the same as well as to type 'I dislike' comment. Try it. Case solved.:cool:
