Would it be possible to have a like or +1 for posts and people to show support?

This has been suggested in the past. As long as 'likes' aren't counted in any way so we can avoid it being abused, I support it.

Are you suggesting that, if we *Like* (As in Facebook, Twitter, Instagram) the thread and/or post we then get plus one to our post count? If that's the case then I don't support it. It can definitely be very abused especially when trying to reach 100 posts to enable the PM system. So I highly disagree. However I do like the liking system idea. I would really support that

Part of our VT Survey before 2014 ended asked users about a like system. I guess it's still in discussion, but the response seemed to be more on the negative side.

I'm pretty sure the "+1" part of that would entail a visible counter of likes, and nothing to do with post count.

Ahhh well, you see that part confused me. But I see now :P

+1 = like in Google+ and Google Play. It's like support, but not meant to up post counts. You should also see who did it

I'm agree

Yeah, no need to count likes.

It would be cool because you could support someone who's putting it all out there, or who's going through some shit, you know?

I'd support a "user likes this post" system.

What I would NOT support is anything like an anonymous system with negative feedback like from the past. It'd be too easy to hit the negative button and type in a hateful/harmful message and be anonymous.
