Don't try to be someone else , be who you are because everyone else is taken.

It's obtrusive presence infiltrates every post.  I think it deserves it's own thread.

(In truth, I posted before I saw that thread.)

I don't care for it, it's cluttering to look at.

Now we won't just have post-padding, we'll have like-bait as well... Oh, and the color is fugly too...

On a serious note, why not thumbs-up/thumbs-down?

Have a link to an smf plugin for that?
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

I really don't like it.
A reddit style up/down vote might be ok, but this is just... yuck.

Why is this necessary altogether (even thumbs)?
Who really cares what everyone thinks about every comment? Why can't we have a simple conversation without the $.02? At most have it just for threads. But for each comment?

Don't, surprisingly seems to be discussed all over but still doesn't exist. Would put $10 in a collection jar to help pay for it.

+1, am I supposed to like your post too?

It gives credence to posts, if you can filter for it it would help filter big threads for the most important/best posts.

For threads, OK. For posts? Can't we just leave it at +1, add to wiki, etc.? It's just more friendly to scroll through posts that way, without all the extra stuff

Personally I'd prefer it be like reddit or slashdot where:
1. Conversations get threaded and you can contract/minimize them.
2. You can filter by ratings and only see quality posts.

Imagine a thread with 1000 posts where you can get 90% of the content by reading 10 of the posts. The above two enhancements would save you loads of time reading and processing information.

Maybe just make a subreddit like /r/ddf
Live forever or die trying.
