With so many suggestions being made so rapidly for BG3, I figured it would help to have a way to express approval for a given post or idea, potentially giving the Larian team a better way to get feedback on community ideas.

I'm new, so I'm not sure if I simply don't have the permissions needed to do this yet, but wanted to put the idea forward in the event that it's not a thing, currently.

There is a facility to upvote but it isn't enabled as it tends to encourage cliques to form. I can see a case could be made for all the "+1" replies but on balance it's probably best left as it is. OTOH, "it's not just you"!

I'm not sure that cliques wouldn't form regardless, tbh.

I get not allowing downvotes, though.

I see problems with reaction voting on other sites, not exactly as Vometia describes but often with trolls and known trouble-makers stalking posters they have disagreed with and leaving negative reactions to all their posts, regardless of content.

I'm not of the generation whose seem to live and die by their online presence, but even I get ticked off by such behaviour. On the other hand, it would be nice sometimes to get simple feedback, knowing that you aren't the only one feeling a certain way, without someone having to create a whole new post just to say 'I agree' (or, conversely, 'disagree'). Ho hum, as Vometia has said before, people are (mostly) human and you cannot cater for trolls and idiots abusing otherwise useful forum features.
