Cheers.

I like it (no pun intended :lol:) It makes rep a lot easier and it's a familiar system. Great Idea!

You're welcome! I think it's important to get the community involved, after all, you guys are using the site a lot more than me most of the time!

just to clarify, is this a separate system from rep or what? like if i like a post, it doesn't give positive rep, does it?

also nth-ing a mobile site, please!

I'm pretty sure a "simple" version is already available for those that want mobile support, however it does require some html hacking. Just copy the exact same url, replace showthread.php, with archive, grab the forum number (the first string of numbers in the url) and replace the rest of the url with /index.php/t-[forum number].html

This:
http://www.thedaftclub.com/forum/showthread.php/16194-New-Like-Feature?

Should become this:
http://www.thedaftclub.com/forum/archive/index.php/t-16194.html (http://www.thedaftclub.com/forum/archive/index.php/t-16194.html)

After that, all of the pages should be in the "simple" mode. That seems like a lot to type though, perhaps you could bookmark the forum index itself in the "simple" mode to make everything faster and easier.

So:
http://www.thedaftclub.com/forum/forum.php (http://www.thedaftclub.com/forum/forum.php)

Becomes:
http://www.thedaftclub.com/forum/archive/index.php (http://www.thedaftclub.com/forum/archive/index.php)

Thanks guys. I can confirm that the like feature also adds to (or takes away from if you unlike) a users reputation. Unlike the main reputation system it's a fixed 'score'. This differs to standard reputation in that the amount of rep 'score' you give will increase the more rep you yorself have.

As for the mobile site, it's still something I'm working on... it's gonna take a bit of time though and there's a load of other stuff on my list too, so I can't say when it'll arrive I'm afraid...
