BGA Feature #88 Reactions Instead of Likes

Supporter

I've been working on a new system of responding to posts! Instead of just simply liking something you can now react with a variety of ways! This allows for a more expressive response to a post and gives me and to create additional functionality to the website!

Some things to come with this new system

  • A way to see all the posts you've reacted to by category (the easiest example is to give a post the 'star' reaction and then later you can go look at all the ones you've starred
  • Reactions for all of the comments
  • Gold reactions (ones that you can use your gold for) is in the process of making a few and the first ones I'm hoping to see are victory point ones!

Let me know what you think and if you have any suggestions for some sweet gold reactions that you'd like for us to make or get the license to (similar how we have board game IP based avatars)

Neat! I like the way it's developing

I like them, I too am worried about noise in the comments, but, I think you can cross that hurdle.

I like it! Will this functionality be expanded to comments as well? I don't necessarily think it needs to, and I wonder if adding them into the comments might make it visually distracting in a post with many comments.

It will be added to comments as well but I also am concerned about the visual noise it could create so we may take the design approach that facebook did and put the icons in the bottom right section of the comment or something. I'll be working on it next week and seeing what feels good.

That's probably a good solution. I think it works pretty well on facebook. An alternative could be to display them in the same location but as an outline with color removed, or something like that.

After a lot of different trials, I think it actually seems fine in the expected place. I want to try it out for a bit since it's certainly standing out because it's new and has color but I think I may get used to it. I like it here, mostly because this is where I expect to natrually "read' the reactions after reading the comment.

They definitely catch the eye, but I do think you're right that it's not too distracting. I guess we'll see - if the community prefers it a different way, we can talk about it on a Feedback Friday :)

I concur, you notice it but it doesn't seem like it is too much

Also, just like all of our basic avatars, designed each of the reactions himself!

I feel like we should get Phil and Trent Emojis in the mix 😄

Whipped one up just now for fun! I don't know why we'd want them, but just wanted to share haha

Are those both you? Joanne says if the other one is me you need different hair color and a bigger nose 😜

Haha, excellent! Please add these to the options!

The better question is why wouldn't we want them? Lol

Thanks! I made two more that can be given out by paying gold coins (may get tweaked before/after release). More incoming :)

This is a great function already. Can't wait to see how it develops
