    A fun little "trick" I came across in regards to our new Like system today?

    Default Updated info on new like system

    No, your eyes aren't deceiving you...you can now choose THREE different options in the new Like system. The contractor helped me understand that there was a setting I was simply missing with it. I ask you, however, to use the new options VERY carefully. I hesitated even turning on the Dislike system, and if things go negative with it, I probably will. I mean who actually WANTS their posts "disliked"?? NOT me. I'd prefer people to simply ignore what they don't like and move on. And yes, I do understand that if someone is posting about something THEY dislike that for you to use the "dislike" button could mean you are commiserating with them, but really, I'm just not sure even that is worth it.

    With that said, we'll play with it for a little while and see how it goes.

    Also, to answer the question about "Unclicking" an icon you've clicked - - even if you clicked it accidentally - - , that definitely is not possible in this version, so again, I ask you to click VERY carefully, okay?

    I think the "dislike" will be helpful on the wildly popular "hater thread" Now we can sympathize! I always hated the idea of "liking" a post there.

    Hah as long as we know its a supportive dislike!

    I was thinking - geesh, there must be some vicious forums out there!

    I think it might get confusing.

    And Im so happy I refound that *one of those cool little moments* thread based on top likes. We need those back in general rotation!

    Do you have the option to change the "Dislike" text to something more commiserator-friendly like "Hugs"?

    STFD! Too awesome!

    Now, can we put in that request for a virtual pitcher of sangria or a chocolate bar?
