Post reactions

The forum software was updated yesterday and as part of that the post "reactions" were changed to the Facebook standard - Like, Love, etc.



If you don't care about this stuff, avert your eyes now, otherwise, read on ;)

Does anyone have any thoughts on what these should be? The agree/disagree button seemed to cop a good mashing so far, and "interesting" was used a fair bit, and "Haha" covers the previous "Funny" ...

What do we want to keep, remove, add to the list?

Definitely need like, agree, disagree, funny, interesting, informative, winner
Some news ones -
* Maybe, Undecided or Not sure
* ?
* Go on... Or Keep going...

I'd really like the question mark one. I used to find some posts confusing or like a ? was my best response but didn't want to post to query further.

Bring back meh, agree/disagree, interesting, optimistic, informative.
Keep ‘like’, ‘love’, ‘haha’.
I also don’t hate the idea of having ‘sad’ and ‘wow’.
Any restrictions on how many you can have?

No restriction, other than it might get a bit cluttered and someone like me have trouble deciding which one to click :D

One that has come up is a laugh/cry but not sure what emoji would be best for that -- there is a "tears of joy" but that's not really "I don't know whether to laugh or cry"

I like the maybe/undecided/not sure - bit of a fence sitter type response ... "not convinced yet" and kind of rolls into the next one :)

... ?/Go on/ Keep going ... nice

Just a quick note - all the reactions have changed back to "like" for the moment until I can get these set up again

FWIW, like all the suggestions so far and prefer a good amount of options. I guess love kind of covers winner, but winner better suits on a forum like this.

I think disagree is probably better than dislike and we could just ditch the thumbs down. Prefer when people argue their positions.

An on the sauce reaction could be useful on here it seems as well.

optimistic and friendly all had their moments
