hey Kate, there have been two threads tonight that contain posts I really agree with, rather than do the quote thing, is it at all possible with the forum to create an ''approve'' emblem (sort of like FB like) to show how many others think a posting is a great idea?

+1

(is the equivalent of "Like" in the forum world).

I have used +1 often but if the post isn't directly above your approval post you still have to quote what you are agreeing with, I think swaggie means an emblem or something you could place at the foot of the post you agree with as in the like button on FB.

I have seen other forums with a "Thanks" button, but not a "Like" button as such.

I guess the writers of forum software don't want to copy Facebook too closely, for fear of being sued, or just plain ridiculed [}:)]

Hi Swaggie, this is on my 'to do' list as it's been requested before. I have a couple of things to get sorted first then I promise I'll get onto it...

Hahahaha I so agree, but the young people plus love it - I used to think my parents were sooo old fashined when they didn't talk the current teenage talk or use a cassette player or stereo. I remember the popular words were trou, mighty, cor, the tutt and eye roll (which seems to be timeless [8D]) San Michelle tee shirts and cords, "seaweeds" in their combie vans, the Ford Escort, Amco bull denims, Deep Purple, Harry Nilsson, Jethro Tull, Cat Stevens and Black Sabbeth, Monty Python, the Grunt Machine, Karen Hay.....Facebook Spaceshook, they don't scare me! :D :D :D

perhaps we need to have our own 'like' and 'dislike' buttons... a like looks like a little calf or lamb and a dislike is a collapsed fence!!!!... what other things could we have???

I dont think a disapproval button is at all necessary
There are often posts that i cringe when I read them but we are posting here to provide help and ideas etc, not with putting down other people
Agreeing with an idea is one thing, there are some really interesting concepts put forward and if people want to go and give them a little tick, thats fine.
BUT giving the stamp of disapproval is an entirely different matter and is best left alone, IMO

That SO brings back memories :)

Yep, the Ford Escort, or for those who couldn't afford it, the 100E Prefect, Amco Bull Denims or Levi 501s, Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon album, David Bowie, Radio with Pictures. Kids smoking at school behind the bike sheds. Only the real rebels were into grass, and as for "P", well that wasn't even invented (thank God).

Bell bottums ahhhhhh. I remember being "in love" with David Essex and I had a hair cut like David Bowie in his skin tight jump suit experimental days, Dark Side of the Moon was an absolute cult record wasn't it [8D]. I remember Mum being totally disgusted by Led Zep, I now agree some of their lyrics are cringe worthy [:0] oooh I've just remembered the bad (and therefore terribly attractive) boys drove mark 3 Zephyrs. We didn't see many drugs in my neck of the woods thank goodness but I was a secret smoker - such a rebel :D

Woh oh Black Benny, Bam ba lam...
and of course "Stairway to Heaven", one of my all time faves.

My Dad owned two of those and I learnt to drive in the light-blue coloured one. We towed a caravan all around the South Island with the other mustard-coloured one. This was in the mid-70s mind, when Mark 3 Zs were a bit past their prime. Still a good car though.

We are getting just a tad off-topic here BTW...

Yeah, a Torana XLR5000 would have been the ticket. They were a first-class death trap though, and I probably wouldn't have been alive to tell the tale had I owned one [xx(]

Oh yes, so it is. I don't think I've ever seen the lyrics until I looked them up a few minutes ago. Just remembered hearing it from my workmate's stereo ad nauseum back in the day...
