I know I am a newcomer to this forum and have been reading and enjoying the knowledge, the expertise, the know-hows, the jokes, the affection that we all have for our cars, and best of all, all the beautiful photos of our members' cars. Sometimes I just wish I had a Like button to show my appreciation to the posters.

If it is not too much to ask, I would like to request a Like button implemented. Please. Double please?

The only problem I see with a like button is that it discourages participation. Instead of having more people active in threads verbalizing their thoughts, they just have to hit a like button. That's my opinion.

But it is still much better than posting a 2-word Thank You post to every single post you like, isn't it?

Reviving this suggestion. I am a member of a very large forum and there was quite the controversy over the "like" feature - whether or not we should have it at all, how it should be implemented, etc.

At the end of the day, although I was a detractor of the way it was implemented, I like it overall. There are times where I would want to indicate that I liked a post/comment, but don't actually have anything else to add to the conversation at that time. In those situations, I just move along without contributing anything.

Likes would at least show what's being read and appreciated as particularly insightful or helpful, even for the lurkers.

In fairness, only four people said they were interested in this thread in a year and 3 months. Not like the door is being beaten down for this feature. :p

I’d like a like system. Maybe a thanks feature too.

A “like” and “thanks”. So much good info gets posted that deserves a thanks but I don’t want to clutter up a thread with it.
