Default Google +1 Button

     

We have a new feature that I thought I'd post some links to so you can learn what it's all about. Basically the +1 button is a way of saying to the world (and it will show in google search results) that you think the topic/thread is of value. You can see the +1 button at the top of the page next to "Post Reply" or below "Post Reply" if you are using IE.

You can read more about it here: About the +1 button : +1's - Profiles Help

I hope it proves to be a value to our users. You do not need to use it, but if you feel so inclined you can.

You have to sign into a google account to use it?

I think Google is getting a little to intrusive. They seem to have their fingers in everything.

And on that note it's removed.

I'm a little embarrassed to say I didn't like it but added it anyway... I feel like a sheep in an mob just following the herd...

Just because they made it doesn't mean we should use it.

Nice evolution it takes most of mankind decades to evolve beyond that.

I really like a lot of Google's products however I wish I was not required to tie my android to their email.

Thanks

I was a bit irritated when it became mandatory to have a google account to access Utube. C'mon. They have gotten out of control. You know they are data gathering. Enough is enough.

I like this site the way it is, Woody. No need to fluff it up any more. Too much fluff and you'll lose the simplicity which is appealing to some...

Yep, data collection on a mass scale.

I agree, KISS (Keep it simple stupid) is the best policy. Gotta keep the young ones happy too, while not pissing off us old timers
