My main disappointment with this forum (and it is down to the software) is that it isnt possible to "like" a post. My like button would be working overtime at he moment.
Your wish is my desire-to-please - I've found and installed an extension. You'll now see a little "Like" thumbs-up (hopefully!) top right against each post...

Only if you are logged in. No anonymous liking. Just sayin'.

Correct! Anonymous liking is always dodgy - can clog up a database, and difficult to allow for un-liking when Tove made a mistake.

I'm slightly confused by the 5* and % ratings that seem to be a consequence of people liking posts... There are lots of threads and posts with 12.5% or similar ratings which make it seem like a lot of people disapprove...

I’m not sure what those are - they came with the plugin for the Like button.... I guess they’ll make more sense once more Likes have been given...

Can I disable the thank/thanked ratio display in my profile?
I'm worried that I'll be perceived as arrogant or ungrateful for not having thanked anyone.

Oh for heaven’s sake, I think I’ll turn it off - more trouble than it’s worth.

... and I clicked on what I thought was the 'QUOTE' button, only to discover I 'LIKED' the post.

Should have gone to 'Specsavers'
