Of course it's attention seeking. Why on earth would you share images on a public forum if you didn't want to draw attention to them?
Comment is what defines a forum, I'm OK with that.
I don't know what likes are.

I share images because I like making them and sometimes feel compelled to share them despite myself. I imagine other contributors might feel similar dualities within photography sometimes.

If you feel differently, OK, cool, ca va.

a like button in a discussion (like this one for instance) would work just like the well known:
"+1, 10 characters"

so why not?

One of the best arguments against implementing the suggestion. Rangefinder Forum isn't every other forum. I find the combination of knowledge, experience and intelligence manifested by its members unique. A like button is a lazy and mediocre way of expressing an opinion. You like something? Don't like it? Make an effort and articulate your thoughts. No, it's not nearly as easy as clicking "like". But all the better for it. (When I say "you" and "your" above, it is in the general sense and not directed at you, Jim).

Errrr....Not. Have a look here: https://globalnews.ca/news/5201845/i...to-hide-likes/ From the article:


"Research shows that lengthy social media use can have negative implications on well-being. A recent report by the U.K.ís Royal Society for Public Health ranked Instagram as the worst app for young peopleís mental health, followed by Snapchat. That may be why Instagram is testing out hiding the ďlikeĒ count on the platform and encouraging users to focus on quality over quantity."

I like to like. This doesn’t mean I do so easily or without sincerity. On the contrary.

If you don’t like to like, or would rather like by posting your like separately, you can already do that.

I support the ‘like’ button addition.

Stephen needs to decide whether this is worthwhile in my opinion.

Yes, indeed. Otherwise it could go back and forth with no meaningful end in sight.

Same here, and it does not only apply to postings with images in them, but also to DIY solutions and other suggestions made.
It can lead to a degree of annoyance, having to scroll through tens of postings that don't contain much but an "I agree." or "Well done!" - some of them quoting more than necessary from the previous post.

Also true.

I would have liked the post, not being entirely sure, if I added anything substantial to the thread...
