Is it just me or did the like/dislike option get removed?

We've got like/dislike buttons? I've yet to notice one. I'll have to watch for them.

At least for me they're below each post, but sorta faded.

They don't appear for me on this thread. Might be cause I'm on an android platform.

I don't need a like/dislike button anyway.

Oh, yea, that'd probably do it.  Either you're using the special mobile interface, or it's just the comparatively stripped-down nature of the browsers.

I'm meh about 'em myself, so I get ya.

I'm on the mobile version most of the time because it displays to fit the Kindle screen size and I can reply. I do switch to the desktop verson now and again for more detailed things the ability to like something.

In desktop for me the thumbs up/thumbs icons are kinda shadowy. But when I click on their location box they pop right up.

You know that green color bar under the ID?

<--- Some, including mine, are now getting red on the right side.

What's that mean?

It's the "thumbs up/down" record. Green for up, red for down. As I type this you've got nine up, one down.

I don't appear to be allowed to post in the deals and bargains forum. I can post in all the other gear forums though.

I'm still blocked from doing anything in that section other than read what others posts.

Odd, I thought I'd fixed that. I'll look at it again.

Whatever you changed seems to have fixed my problem of not seeing the Like/Dislike options.

But can you buy/sell?

Not sure which forum Ronekiln was seeing his problem, "Items for trade or barter" or "Bargains and Discounts", but both appear to be working fine for me.

They don't seem to be on all posts/threads from what I've seen.    :smiley_shrug:




Hey boss-  Will there be an option to bookmark threads on the site?

I now have reply, post, and quote abilities in the Bargain section!

And for the first time since the forum opened I have the like/dislike buttons on posts!

Explain "bookmark" please. 

Save a list of topics/threads in our user profile to quickly access or view at a later date for reference.  I used this feature extensively on the old forum. 

I bookmarked a bunch of old threads to my PC before the old one went belly up thinking I could still reference them...  and that has been an exercise in futility so far.   

I believe there was even a "subscribe" option on the old site that you could/would get notifications of new posts in topics if you checked that box.  You could unsubscribe later if you no longer wished to participate in the topic.
