    On the Swap and Shop - is there a way to separate out actual sales versus links to ebay listings? Its very annoying to have a large percentage of the listings just redirect to ebay - maybe a thread could be stickied or something?

    Editing posts on mobile devices isn't possible. It automatically defaults to selecting the "delete post" radio button and no matter what you do, if you edit the post and click "submit" (or whatever the commit funciton is) it deletes.

    Any way to turn that default to deletion off and allow editing from mobile devices?

    re: signature.

    Click on 'settings' at the top left of your screen.
    The click on 'edit signature' in about the middle of the page, on the left hand side of your screen.

    Cheers.

    I think part of it is due to the business nature of the site. I've noticed that links posted in forum threads to outside stores like J.Crew get an automatic affiliate link attached to it.

    It seems the answer to your question is "no."

    [MENTION=2622]hornsup84[/MENTION] Point taken about clouding up the site with mindless "I agree" or "+1" posts. But a) really, how hard is it to scroll past these postings? and b) Dappered seems to be remarkably free of these kind of posts. Knock wood.

    I have to respectfully disagree with your notion that we are missing out on certain posts because of the lack of this feature. If anything I think the lack of the 'thumbs up' feature encourages people to post thoughtful comments and critique of what people are wearing. My opinion is that being able to click a thumbs up icon and moving to the next post enables anyone to click without giving any thought to what they are clicking and liking. I'd much rather see/encourage debate and critical thought as opposed to just saying like/not like.

    (Then again I'm in my 40ies and think schools should still teach cursive writing and encourage critical thinking. Hey you kids, get off my lawn!)

    People will either participate in threads or they won't. A thumbs up/down feature likely will not change this.

    Dappered is remarkably free of this and it would be nice to keep it that way.

    It's a means of demonstrating that you like something or showing agreement with a post without clouding up the conversation with "+1" and "agree" posts. I've seen it implemented on a reasonable and gentlemanly basis before (e.g., WUS forums).

    I think it's fair to say that we're missing out on participation in certain threads--WIWT being the prime example--because there is a bias toward posting to critique or disagree (and less so for liking a look or agreeing with a post). I imagine fewer people post on these types of threads because most of what they see is just the critiques/negative comments that are posted. In the spirit of Threads promoting a place where I'd hope those things would be preferred/encouraged, it seems like a reasonable thing to add.

    As for it being a 'pissing contest', I guess it could be taken as a competition, but I feel like WIWT or ... the actual weekly contests we have... could be taken as the same. I think it's more the type of folks you have participating than it is the functionality, so I doubt adding a "like" feature would change how people view such things.
