Often I see a post which I appreciate and want to show my support for, but I do not feel I have anything meaningful to add to the conversation, so I just let it slide rather than cluttering up a thread with lots of "Yeah! What THEY said!"

I thought it might be nice to have an option to click a "cheer" button at the bottom of a post, just to show general support, agreement, or applause, so people would know their contribution had been read and appreciated whether or not any real dialogue was happening.

Yesterday we completed another step toward moving to the new software.  The new software does support a thumbs up for posts that you like.

Could this fit what you have in mind?

That sounds great!  I'm looking forward to seeing the new developments.

Any other hints what to expect?

I've had the same thought in the past.

I think a "thumbs up" button would be a great way to, uh, give a post the thumbs up without posting when I have nothing specific to add or ask.
 
You know it is dark times when the trees riot. I think this tiny ad is their leader:
