...that can be given for posts without starting a new post. A half dozen such as for like, dislike, agree, disagree, funny, hilarious.

Anyway this can be done?


There was only 16 squadrons of RAF fighters that used 100 octane during the BoB.
The Fw190A could not fly with the outer cannon removed.
There was no Fw190A-8s flying with the JGs in 1945.

It took years, but I finally warmed up to avatars and signatures, although I wouldn't mind one bit if SimHQ removed these features (the simpler the better, IMO).

But I'll never support a Like system (if that's what you're referring to). It wouldn't bother me so much if there's a way to opt out and not have that option included for one's posts (same with a Reputation system). So I wouldn't care as long as I'm not expected to participate.

The Like system is one reason I've never joined any social media proper (i.e. Facebook). Maybe because of all the fluff I post, I don't want to be so easily graded? smile Nah, I'm just old-fashion in a Usenet kind of way. old_simmer

The problem with those systems is they become a judgement measure. Then we start competing or currying favor. People start getting their feelings hurt.


Good people sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

Someday your life will flash in front of your eyes. Make sure it is worth watching.

Agree with OG. Leave smilies out. SimHQ ain't social media.

Just to clarify, we're not really talking about smilies, right? Those we already have [ smile ] (I have a request for an exercise and headbanging smilie).

It's a Like or Reputation system that we don't want (which apparently includes smilies).

EDIT: I don't know social media, only message boards.

The forums are already a form of turn based combat... We don't need to add a scoreboard to it.
