This feature would be awesome too for 2.1RC3 version.  :)


I am going to test it with a test site to see how it works but I have always had bad experiences trying to apply a similar system to certain forums. I never fully understand the "like" system on any page. I think I'm getting older -Taking a mate- :P. Then I attach the translation to Latin Spanish (I am catching up with several translations) and great job @GL700Wing!

I never fully understand the "like" system on any page.
I manage several enthusiast forums - one for a specific motorcycle, one for a specific 4WD and one for a specific off-road camper trailer - and members of these communities often share quite detailed and technical information about modifications and/or upgrades they've done and/or details/photos of places they've been/trips they've done. 

Having both the 'Likes' and 'Thanks' mods installed allows other members to respond to these posts without cluttering up topics by posting one word/sentence responses (eg, "Thanks", "Nice!", "That's great!", "Thanks for sharing", "Good job!", "I really like this", "Nice photos", "Great shot!", etc) which is what used to happen before these mods were installed.
