Thanks for the all the comments.
The position and layout of the new links were carefully thought out. I wanted it to be easily accessed and at the same time, visually discreet.
To address your inquiry - the purpose of this is to encourage participation. I am in the process of setting up a new incentive program to offer members discounts on our services based on their "total posts", "likes received", "weekly assignment wins", "feature thread wins", etc..
This way active members here will be rewarded for their participation. I am still ironing out the details but basically, the more you do, the more discount you will get.
The reason the 'like' link is only available for individual posts instead of the thread itself -- is because I did not want to disrupt the way FM works now. I don't want us to replace individual posts with 'likes'.
However, this is not set in stone. I see the benefit of having the "like" link on the first post as well...
Doing this in phases will give everyone a chance to get used to it. Thanks for your patience.
