For those interested I made a chrome extension for attack point discussions that allows people to like each others posts
here is the link to get it (chrome only I think) https://tinyurl.com/attackpointplus
if you have any questions about how it works please let me know
Interesting, nice work. Reckon it could do with a little polishing, as it takes a second to run and add the button, but it works well.
I take it everyone's own posts automatically get liked by their own user, and all likes are anonymous, but must still be associated to a user (i.e. you must be logged in to like)?
Yep! You pretty much nailed it.
The load time for the buttons is mostly due to the extension reading data from the database, but it would be nice to cut down on the load time a bit if I could.
Just a suggestion - insert your extra bits into the left panel (below/beside the username?), or maybe as an extra div on the RHS of the thread, rather than making the page 'jump' downwards when the buttons appear, as that is making the load time really obvious.
Edit: actually, in the message header (next to the #, edit, del etc controls) might be nice.
