A popular feature of social media is the LIKE button. Facebook popularized this and it has since been adopted by many other social media apps and websites. Many sites utilize a voting system to help rank popular posts and promote respected users.

Forums usually didn't utilize such a ranking feature but it seems to be a great way for users to engage with a topic or news article even when they might not have time to expand their opinion with a comment.

So, I have implemented a new Upvote system on Scified! You must be logged in to vote and you are limited to 1 vote per post. Currently, only forum topics and blog posts (news articles) are available to Upvote. I plan to expand this feature and implement a new member ranking / reputation system as well.

In order to Upvote a topic or article, simply open up the topic or article and you will now notice a new thumbs up icon beside the link to read comments:

Simply click that icon to Upvote! When you have Upvoted a post, the thumbs up icon will change to a solid white icon to confirm your Upvote, while before it displays an outline:

This opens up a lot of doors for us and you can expect to see this option expanded throughout Scified by means of organizing top rated topics / articles as well as accumulating your own personal reputation points! (More on that later)

If you have any questions, comments, or suggestions, feel free to leave them in the comments section below... and of course, if you enjoyed this announcement, feel free to give it an Upvote! ;)

I always wondered why this wasn't a feature in the first place^

Upvoted this article and I'm glad it's now an option.
