Is there any way we could have a like button set up on threads or replies to post?

If we get a Like button, we need an unlike button as well.

OK, so it could be 'Approve' and 'Disapprove'. Or, "WooHoo!" and "DOH!".

"Hey, y'all!" and "Darwin Award" or 'yard sale'.

some forums have a thanks button, sorta the same i guess,
when someone has a good post you can get thanked and you can build up your reputation by how many people thank you in your posts . not sure if that is the same .

Ski pointing up, or down would work.

I think there are a couple of ways to do this...

1. User defined functionality... where you can add a Facebook 'Like' button or other similar third party like button. With a bit of time each person could add the ability for someone to like their post. By adding a signature with some code for example. In this scenario the third party tracks the number of likes and it would require everyone that participates to be a member, not great because I suspect most people keep their FB account separate or in some cases don't use it.

2. Forum defined functionality... Where we need the software supporting this forum to be modified or configured, if possible, to enable a 'like' button function.

This forum has moderators to take down troll posts, which is different than a dislike and it has guidelines on thanking people. I think that features like these should be deployed with policy updates and consideration towards not wrecking a good thing. In other words, dislikes could add a new dimension that might prevent good ideas.

Edit...
Noticed the BU forum has a 'Like' function...
