This isn't really a post about SilverStripe, but more an idea for this forum. By now, there have been dozens of occasions where I stumble upon a problem during working in SilverStripe and head over here to search for a solution (yeah, it's almost a daily routine ;-)).
But quite often, the solution which I find amongst the dozens of pages of results, is located in a thread which is from 2008 or 2009. What I would like to do, is reply to the thread to thank the author of the post for helping me out (and also not unimportant, to help me track the thread down again if I run into the same problem in the future), but by doing so, ancient threads would be bumped all the time and that doesn't comply with forum netiquette.
So what would be ideal in these types of situations, is if the SS Forum extension (which is no doubt what this forum is running on) included some sort of "Like" function for each post in a thread. I'm not talking about Liking something on Facebook, but just within the forum itself. Similar to what they've done over at SSBits for their blog posts. That way, the post author could be notified that someone has liked/thanked him for his comment and also, you could track down all your "Likes" on your profile page, next to your list of recent posts.
Anyone else think this could be a useful additional feature?
