    Please see this thread for background: https://www.talkemount.com/f8/featured-posts-2364/

    I'm giving a new like button a try since it lets us tally # of likes, etc. One thing to note is that you will now be notified of all likes in the notifications panel. I can't turn that off. If you click on the # of likes at the top of a thread, it gives you an option to go directly to the most liked posts, which is kind of neat.

    Interested to hear whether you prefer the old thanks button or the new likes button.

    Darn, it seems this new mod doesn't let me see the most liked threads after all. It only shows the most liked posts for a given thread.

    Well, I like the Like link. And since I guess we can't Thank any more... Thanks!

    One thing I miss about the thanks button is that if someone makes a compliment (on an image, for example), I can easily say thanks. Liking the compliment just isn't the same!

    No way to do both, eh? Hm.

    I think having both would be confusing to a lot of people.

    Can we make it an animated GIF flipping between "Like" and "Thank"?

    In my mind "liking" a compliment is actually saying thanks for it, no ??

    Might make people a bit crazy to see all the motion. We could just have it say "Like/Thank".

    Well, if nothing else we now have a fairly simple method to determine the outcome of any future "I can't sell this lens so I'll just have a contest and give it away" events- most Liked/Thanks posts wins. :p lol!
