    Another option would be to have the ability to add a "Like" button to your tread when posting it. I understand saying the same things over and over again can get old and start to become meaning less.
    That's why Barb and I don't start a lot of threads anymore because we tend to repeat our favorites and you guys have seen them multiple times so something like that a "like" button would work fine.

    Thanks Lew, thanks to you too Bob, it’s simply an acknowledgment without needing to add characters, the Mandolin Cafe site set up is like the Pentax one too, and MUCH easier to add photos.
    It just makes me think it would not use as much band width to “Thank” someone than to respond to the thread with “boy that looks great” thirty times.
    Just one mans opinion.

    I think it would depend on if that capability is built into the vBulletin software the site runs on. I doubt it. I used to have a guild website for an online game that ran on vBulletin, but that was a long time ago. I doubt Chris wants to reprogram their software. I sure as hell wouldn't know how to go about it. It's a good idea though! However, sometimes the old fashioned way to thank someone is best: Write a reply post on a website.

    Edit: I googled it an it looks like it is possible, but it's a hack. I doubt Chris would want to mess with it.

    I'm on the fence regards this.

    Personally, if I go to the effort of documenting a cook & posting it... wouldn't want to see a bunch of "likes" or "thanks" & nothing else..
    otoh... would be nice to see acknowledgement for the effort even if someone wishes not to comment.
    I have a feeling that those who wish to comment will do so.
    Could give it a try & see how it goes?
    If it's a bust... get rid of it.

    Looks great Robert!

    Ok, I’ll go stand in the corner.
