What on earth are "like" buttons (and the like, if you will excuse the pun) needed for?? And while we are on the topic, do serious translators have the time and inclination to push useless buttons?

If "serious translators" have time to read and participate in the fora, then I would venture to guess they would also have the time to click on a button to express their agreement with a post, rather than clicking and pushing several buttons just to write "I agree". Furthermore, having strings of posts that quote a previous comment only to add "I agree" seems hardly functional or desirable, while a simple counter would serve the same function in an efficient and unobtrusive way.

That said, as I wrote before, I totally agree that a similar feature (if implemented) should not be linked in any way to social networks and/or external platforms.

...I agree.

I agree.

.....for agreeing with me.

Because I agree with you too.

PS. Just occurred to me. Wouldn't an Agree button do away with all of this?

I must say I tend to agree...
