    Simple add a button in the profile where someone can click to become a fan and everyone sees how many fans you have just like in facebook.Opinions now

    This is a forum, not fucking Facebook.

    Dang, I know it's not a fantastic idea, but am I the only adult here that doesn't think the idea's crap? What's with all the hate?

    And how would a fan button let people show how much they hate you? [​IMG]

    Aww...but I want to stroke Monkat's ego... [​IMG]

    We've had a dozen similar suggestions in the past year, and they've been shot down every time.
    Having this feature would just be yet another e-peen for people to stroke.

    If you were a true fan you would take pains to always be on their last profile visitors list. That way anybody that cares can see you are a fan quite easily as well. "Problem" solved.

    Otherwise this is too reminiscent of rep/forum points/thanks and other such mechanisms.
