Mike, we currently have the five basic 'default' reaction options provided by Invision, the forum software supplier:

  • Like
  • Thanks
  • Confused
  • Sad
  • Haha

There are some interesting discussions about their use on the Invision site, and many users of the software on other forums have requested additional ones. One that caught my eye was the 'plus one' option - here is what it looks like in use:

Historically, I haven't been a fan of the reactions system but they are firmly embedded now and I don't see that changing. So the next best thing would be to update them, and perhaps tailor them better to our users needs.

I would like to see a basic smiley face myself. When someone makes a post that makes me smile, I sometimes feel that the laugh is too much, but the standard 'like' fails to adequately covey my feelings. I know, I really did just post that.  

Anyway, maybe you could canvass opinion on this, as you have done the emojis? That seemed to get members engaged and freshened things up a bit.

Here are some of the options I saw on the Invision site:
