"Top Likes" - Reputation system enhancements

In the past, our reputation system could only reward individuals for posting quality threads or replies on the forum. After reading user suggestions, we've decided to enhance the system so that it's of more benefit to the entire community.

Thus, we're proud to announce our new "Liked Posts" dropdown, which will be found in the upper-right corner of every thread on the forum. This dropdown will display the 5 (subject to change) posts that have gotten the most reputation clicks (or "Likes") within the thread. Thus, it will now be much easier to find the "meaty" posts within a thread (assuming people click the like buttons!).

Name:  liked1.gif
Views: 2601
Size:  9.0 KB

To like a post, click on the link/thumbs-up icon in the lower-right corner of the post (or upper-right if the post is an announcement/article, such as this one). There's an option in your user cp that allows you to switch between the text link and the icon.

Name:  liked2.gif
Views: 2571
Size:  8.6 KB Name:  liked3.gif
Views: 2553
Size:  2.9 KB

When liking a post, you can also type a thank-you comment which will be visible to the owner of the post. Each like will add to the user's reputation score, which will be used to award various added account features (suggestions welcome).

Finally, the number of likes any post has gotten, if greater than zero, will be shown in the upper-left corner of each post, beside the date.

Views: 2539
Size:  4.5 KB

We hope you enjoy this new feature!

Another feature that's coming soon is a forum-wide list of top liked posts

Does this operate only for new threads, or old ones also?

Upper-right corner of the first post, or lower-right corner of this post!

All threads currently on the forum. Since this system goes off of the reputation system, which has been around for a while, it applies to all threads on the forum!
