The available extension might need to be updated - but as it's quite widely used it probably has been already. Of course it doesn't have to be installed at the same time as the update.

I am against this idea, basically because I like forums where discussions can flow without there being featured posts, without people being influenced by a particular publication that is more popularly accepted or has negatively impacted, I think the current system Establishes Equality between the various opinions.

Also @The Flying Fortress , you make a good point.

No update yet; it requires waiting until all the add-ons we use are updated, and more particularly, I need to update the forum theme. The new version does not have a "like" system built in, so it would still be a matter of finding an acceptable add-on - if it were to be agreed that it's a good idea.

Thanks for the reminder...

Ehhh, I'm not so keen on this, this forum has functioned for a good long while without this, it was never needed now, I don't think it will ever be needed. I think such features encourage indolence and grandstanding, (I'll have to scold Squig next time I see the bugger). While any proposed system may have some benefit, it will always have its unforeseen cons.

This seems like the best place to make this request.

Can we get an "ignore thread" option on this forum?

It's doable, but don't expect it anytime soon. My time is extremely limited and we've got several higher priorities.
