Firstly, I like this particular forum because there is no option to star posts. If you have any wish to express your agreement with posts you are forced to actually comment, not just star a post on the secret sly.
Facebook/Twitter both do it, some forums I know have a similar option naming the members who 'thank' a poster etc, so who thinks this would be a good option for ATS?

I'll go first: I would like ATS to have this feature introduced, but if it couldn't be for whatever reason I would like the whole anonymous starring system removed instead.
Thanks in advance, I'd be interested in any mods views especially, would it help your job knowing who is pretty much the different 'gangs' on ATS?
Gangs in the sense of fellow humans who agree with much of the same as each other, not negative 'gang' stuff lol


Only way to satisfy everyone is to give the OP the ability to turn off/on flags and stars.

If the OP wants everyone to star his/her thread then turn it on.

If you don't want everyone to star your thread then, by all means, turn it off.

This thread in this forum is a fantastic example, because you secret starrers have to reply if you wish to show your opinion lol.
I never have this many replies in threads I create, just a load of stars for me or others.
You have to reply here though Lmao.

That option sounds very reasonable.

I'm mostly a lurker. I don't really comment much because if you read the entire thread before you comment then your thoughts have usually been expressed by someone else. Therefore I star that person. I see no need to post the same idea again. It clutters the threads and reminds me of "that" person in a meeting that everyone knows is only talking to hear themselves and don't realize how idiotic and parrot like they sound.

Lol, scared of people knowing that you agree with some contraversial opinion.
Almost Pmsl.
...come on, explain exactly why you wish to be anonymous when you star a post???

Nobody is disagreeing with that, do you wish starring to be anonymous or not, and why?

... because i have nothing to add, but i agree with the sentiment.
Or because the member might have made a really good op ,or post,
that i don't really agree with , but I star for the effort involved, or the logic , or thoughts
involved...

Begone star police.

I'm not telling you not to post, I'm saying your question/request is stupid because it is none of your business who stars another's post.

So please take your own advice and stop crying.
