Please do not compare this forum with facebook. Instead, compare it with other modeling forums that have a way for others to acknowledge other modelers efforts with a 'like' button or similar. Facebook 'likes' is focused on being liked as a person. Modelers like to know if their model is liked. There is a difference.
i don't think i've seen ''like's'' on other forums, just ''thanks''. do you have any examples?

i could see if someone could create ''compliment smilies'' with a smilie, thumbs up, holding a banner saying ''one million likes, just from me'' or something novel and funny.

If you can like someone's model pictures instead of commenting, there'll be a lot less posts.
My point.
i agree. but then i'm guessing there are people on places such as fb that like to like, like o comment and like to do both.

...there are more.

Several have what you have suggested, i.e., smilies. They are opened, for selection, when clicking on the heart button. The heart button, without selecting a smilie, is the 'like' button.

yes, i have come across the ''heart'' button before on twitter. a variation of a theme. do any of these forums run phpbb software for their forums?

i know certain board software come with ''thanks''. vbulletin, i think, but i wold only be willing to investigate this further if phpbb has an extension or some third party option.
