As mentioned above.

When I enjoy a post for its benifical property's or the comical factor I would like a simple click to 'like' it in some form.

Rather than replying and quoting the text and then having to type 'lol'

It would be a more efficient way of appreciating the post.

*Anti-sign*

It has been rejected countless times and would just lead to constant spamming of junk comments in an attempt to get likes.

See the previous topics where this was suggested and rejected https://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/7-site-suggestions?search=like

Kind of convenient how you apparently didn't notice the actual reasons which he listed straight after.

And yea this is a big no from me. I don't want this site to become a rubbish version of reddit

This was voted on by users when the Future of Gamefaqs board existed and rejected then. I have also explained my reasons against this in plenty other topics in the past, as have many others, so therefore the previous topics already cover my reasons for being against this.

*Signs*

Why not give it a trial run for a week? there's no harm in implementing it for a short period and assessing later.

Plus how could it affect the posting habits of the users if the feature has never been used on here before? It's like when some words come off Autoflag and there's the usual "Oh but that'll lead to more flaming or trolling"

Signs. Gamefaqs needs to move with the times. Also lol at the idea of an "future of gamefaqs" board. I think we can all guess the sort of person who would care enough to frequent such a place.

This has been turned down by admins due to abuse, so a petition won't get anywhere.

Future of GameFAQs was a board that SBAllen ran a few years ago when gauging interest in certain ideas. This was one such idea that was put forth and was overwhelmingly shot down by the user base. It also wasn't a board that anyone frequented, really, so there's no need to be so passive-aggressive here. It was a board that served a basic purpose, and when that purpose had run its course, Allen removed it.
