    Hi, WReference.

    I see that a Facebook "like" button was added recently to "like" certain threads. I would like to suggest another useful "like" feature -- a "like" button for individual replies within a thread.

    When a person replies with an answer to a question asked, it would be nice if the rest of the WordRef community out there could hit a "like" button -- or "agree"? -- in order to endorse or give a shout of approval to a reply on a given thread. For example, if I ask, "Do you say hidrante in your country for fire hydrant?", and there is a "like" button, we can avoid having twenty people reply "Yes, we do use that" by offering a "like" or "agree" button. If I see 15 likes/approves with that entry, I will know the answer has been viewed and endorsed by multiple people and that it's a reply I can probably trust - without having to read through dozens of more comments. Plus, as a native English-speaker, I would like to show my approval or "like" other replies I see on here without typing "Yes, you are correct" with a big reply that includes the whole quote.

    This type of "like" or "agree" button wouldn't have to be Facebook; it could be something internal - within WordReference.

    Can we have that? Anyone else out there agree with me? Reply if you do - for now! Maybe you'll have a "like" button soon!
