It's already used pretty redundantly. Also, look at Keyshe's post above yours.
Well if it's used pretty redundantly already then wouldn't your suggestion be further pushing this notion?

To be honest the VM feature is more of two way messaging system between one user and another while it would be nice to take part in multi conversations I feel that the VM system is mainly a two way communication system.

Yeah. The like system does help a lot in avoiding unnecessary posts. And the same can apply to VMs. Also, as Keyshe said, when you like a VM from a discussion of two other people (stalking, I know, but still).

Edit: Yes. But that's why I also suggest making it necessary to put in a reason.

Hmm maybe Locke or Djinn might be able to give a good answer on this but I think a like system for VM's would be a bit over the top. VM's are more personal things just like PM's while Blogs and forum posts are more general things. Why would you like a vm if you can tell this in a reply? And also...if someone gives a reply to someone else you like doesn't it give that user the feeling you are reading their convo's? Not that it is forbidden of course ;)

I personally won't mind that, actually. Unless it goes full on stalker. But I guess others might.

It's just a suggestion...

I don't think i have seen any mod for adding likes to VMs. I usually see things like a Like tracker that lists the likes someone has given and received in their postbit. Have been on the fence about adding it for a while though.

I have gotten them from who only allow friends to VM back leaving me a harder time to communicate with them when a simple 'like' would help. I had a long two day delay to reply to one more then once because of this-- a 'like' would have helped a lot there... I have to pm them or ask for a friend request first. Or ignore them.

I have also seen awesome VMs I'd like to comment on or give a little 'like' but can't easily as no one other then the two posters can be part of 'that' conversation.
So I'd like to be able to like VMs. One can not reply if there are not part of the two way--I'd have to go the long way around and have. I've seen links and pictures posted all the time-- I can not 'like' them or give a simple communication back for it. VM are like blog as they are public not private, and most are read with out trying as there are right there in your face.

If 'liking' a post has value- liking any communication is too.
It's a suggestion for something that would be helpful to me- is if it's not any use to others, or too hard, that's fine. :)

And also...if someone gives a reply to someone else you like doesn't it give that user the feeling you are reading their convo's? Not that it is forbidden of course ;)
Convo's get read all the time, why should someone NOT be let known it's happening? I get people talking to me all the time who read though mine lol They are not privet but in public-unless you make it so only your friends can see them-- The top VMs are right there anyone can see them with out trying to read them. I've even been directed to by someone to their own VMs for information/link XD

Oh I have heard complains from some people about others reading their convo's. This is something we can't prevend though. People can either turn the visibility off and on.
I personally don't really care about a like system for VM's. I would turn the feature off in the settings if it was available

I was wondering, is there anyway we can honor any and all members by starting some sort of "Member of the Month/Week"? I just think it'd be a great way to get people more involved with the community. We could have it as some form of award, and have users nominate others on who they think deserves it the most. Like what we're doing with Golden Fros, except slightly different. We can also have a thread that announces who our members of the moth/week are. Is this doable?

Well I was trying out the pokemon display again today to see how well it works out when only collections and not forum modifications are shown. I have addressed the space taken up a number of times in the past by suggesting we install a couple add-ons that collapse the postbit display and leave a button you can press to show them, or a tabs system that you can click on a thingy that shows what someone has purchased. Still trying to get that installed so the collections can be displayed. It might give some more emphasis to actually want to buy them if they can be shown. But the number shown can be set to 1, although it only shows the latest purchase.

Not sure if this is possible but what if we had multiway Visitor Messages? I think it'd be cool to VM HoT, JC, and McRiz all at the same time :)
