Can we get a like button here?

Any problems with the site? How can we improve KVR?

As it is currently implemented, I don't see a lot of value in the like feature.

It could have more value though if it actually stated who liked or disliked the post. This could be done by hovering the mouse cursor over the up or down icons in a popup.

Or in other communities it is hidden but controls what posts are shown first based on like count. I'm not sure I value that method as it tends to instigate mob rule in communities and hivemind thinking.

Though I think it would be useful for it to show who liked or disliked the post in some manner.

In general online I use these features because I like the post, do not like the post, or sometimes simply as an acknowledgement that I read a post (so I don't have to type out an actual message).

if a grudge was meant to be held it would have a handle
you can get a little grudge case to keep it in :)
seriously, that's just wasting money and if you want to go out of your way to hold a grudge so be it (but I know better :hihi: )...I'm not going to waste time, energy or anything else on something as useless and counterproductive as a grudge against another person...and ftr I have lived by that statement for at least 40 years...life's too short and the world is too big for me to worry about a grudge... :)

If you were to market something like a mug, as a grudge holder...

I'd imagine it would read the following on the outside:

NOBODY GIVES A f**k
(EXCEPT MAYBE YOUR MOMMA)

I think I'd buy that for someone!

Or it could be randomized to confuse you and wean you off valuing yourself according to other people's pleasure/displeasure.

You've made a false assumption that I am valuing myself according to one's pleasure or displeasure.

You've also failed to consider there are other options from which to consider. Other options such as getting to understand the other members here. Also, as I already mentioned before, using it as a means to acknowledge a post without having to fill a thread with another low value message of 'I agree' or 'cool.' That keeps threads more information rich without having to scroll through more textual emotes or short quips (in theory).
