It might work on a small forum like this, but there are just too many problems with it that could arise.

Current system works fine imo. Not perfect but more than good enough

Dislike buttons just seem passive aggressive to me (and you can be sure certain members would automatically dislike each other's posts).

Plus, if someone doesn't agree with a post, it's more beneficial to the forum if they actually write a response explaining their stance - it means more content and differing opinions.

Yeah. Quoting someone's post and writing +1 or 'This.' or the GOAL emoji works fine, and still allows you to add on afterwards.

I've seen like/dislike buttons have had a detrimental effect on forums in the past, it's just ont the way forward.

Thank/like buttons are more suited to file sharing community forums than to places like GW where actual discussions are being held.
