There's actually a solution for that (Facebook already does it). When someone "like's" something, it would show their name right under that person's signature on that post. "The following people appreciated this post".

That's what I had in mind, but people would still not be happy with that. (And why should they be? No one will ever read the list of +1s.)

I wouldn't want to invest time and energy into something that I didn't think people would use either, but why not find out if that's actually the case?

What about a thread in meta asking for people to vote?

vBulletin has a "thank you" feature for those who feel the need to "upvote" or "like" to contribute:

Theymos (and everyone else) please see this as well https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=68329.msg1908247#msg1908247

I think positive reputation is good, but right now it appears that there is only negative reputation (ignore color). Until positive reputation methods are introduced, negative reputation methods should be better managed.

Voting is the worst way of making a decision like this. Very few people will vote for, "No, I don't want a new feature that costs me nothing to have."

This feature is actually listed on the new forum software specs, so I agree that it would be helpful, but I don't think that it'll be very helpful, and so it's a low priority.

I agree that posts should be removed if they do not contain any meaningful addition to the conversation.

I do have a question: If somebody puts up a '+1' post, that would add the thread to their 'Show new replies to your posts' list. But if that post is later deleted by a mod, would that also remove the thread form their relies list? I have recently switched to using the watchlist so I guess that would not affect me, but some people might miss out on conversation they were interested in.

I believe the watchlist bases itself off of the most recent post ID in the thread.

I.E. if the watchlist knows you have looked at #202, then #203 comes up and is deleted, it will not pop up on the watchlist because the most recent reply that is active is #202.

I was thinking more along the lines of I post a "+1" to subscribe to the thread, the mod deletes my post, the next time somebody posts in the thread it will show up in 'watchlist' (if you have selected the option of automatically adding posts to the watchlist) but not in 'show new replies'.

Yes that will do that effect because 'adding posts to the watchlist' effectively add the thread to the watchlist (forever) where as 'show new posts' looks for the threads you posted in

This is a good idea, I think with advertisers paying users by their post count it was inevitable.
