    If you are talking solely about 'Likes':
    This has been brought up and discussed before IIRC.
    The reason why it won't work is pretty simple - just imagine all the like whoring and rating abuse going on in PMs if 'Like' would be added.
    You don't even have that option on OJ, and that's the holy land for a lot of likes.
    The number of likes in particular is closely connected to trophies and your rep power. I would imagine that would be another reason for the staff to not approve of this idea.

    Oh I see.

    But how about not having it count towards your ratings, wouldn’t that fix the problem?

    Only reason I’d like to have it is because I may be lazy to reply or I might find a comment funny so I’d simply rate it. It’d be pretty tedious to reply to a comment saying I agree with this or this is funny.

    You are asking for one user's convenience, which, undoubtedly, can be helpful to others if you present it the way you did. The whole forum might not use it for that purpose, however, and that's were the risk comes in. I'm not sure if it can be set to not count towards ratings.

    Let's see what mods and admins have to say about it

    What's the point? Just say "that was funny" and move on with the convo.

    It's an in built feature in XF 2.0 (we have 1.5), an upgrade isn't scheduled for any time soon though and it would cause more problems than liking PMs is worth.

    I didn't know likes was tied into rep power. Interesting.
