    I was thinking about it and I wonder if a feature could be added to “like” beer reviews? This may be more of a question for the bro’s but I was also just curious in general. I often see reviews that are funny or well done and wish I could give them encouragement. I could pm them but that’s probably weird.
    I also think it would probably boost the amount of reviews on ba if there was some positive feedback for quality reviews.

    Bro’s and/or mods feel free to comment if this is something that can’t realistically be done.

    This was a feature that was disabled some time ago, not sure why.

    Hmmm... maybe a moderator can give us insight? I could understand not wanting to be critical of reviews, but if there was only a “like” option I think it would be really nice.

    That was an option up until recently. Wasn’t widely used though.

    I liked the feature, & did use it.
    Todd addressed it at one point. Not 100% sure , but my memory, of the sense of it, was that that it was a technical issue more than a We don't like this issue. :thinking_face:

    I liked it too and wished it was more widely used.

    Some of the Poo-Bahs on here write hilarious and well written reviews (i.e. @TheIPAHunter , @RaulMondesi , to name a couple).

    Having the Like feature back, would be nice.

    Lol. That’s who I was actually thinking of. I see so many Cali brews that only have a few reviews, and a lot of them include RaulMondesi. They’re also usually hilarious. Now I don’t have to dm you like a weirdo.

    I used the "Like" feature quite a bit. My only quibble with it was that there was no notification that someone liked one of your reviews. It'd be nice to know who your fans are, particularly if you're @RaulMondesi or @TheIPAHunter. :wink:
