    Hello Awesome WP Staff!

    A cool conversation developed regarding a blogger’s response to multiple comments toward one post/page. In essence, it’s awkward and space inefficient to reply to ever comment, especially basic complimentary comments. However, it’s proper etiquette to acknowledge them and demonstrate appreciation.

    So the thought of a “Like/Thank You” button for comments came up. I’m sure it’s been considered by WP staff and maybe in the works, so I simply wanted to say it’s a great idea :)

    Thank you again for all your hard work and commitment toward making WP THE place to blog – I LOVE it!!!


    The blog I need help with is followmyfilm.com.



    WP.com blogs already have that: Like and Thank You — it’s called Ratings. If you don’t have that enabled you can do so from your blog’s dashboard. Ratings go one up from Facebook’s Like, it even comes with Dislike (thumbs down).



    Great. Thank you. I’ll definitely check it out!



    I checked it out. Unless I’m missing something, all I found was the star or thumbs up/down options.

    To be honest, I’m not a fan of that for comments. Why should a thumbs down or one star even be an option for someone who left a comment? Why should I subject my commentators to that kind of scrutiny? It’s overly qualitative versus singularly affirming and appreciative such as a “Like” or Thank You button.

    Definitely not a fan…
