Feature - @Mention username ¶
This is a quick thought. From a forum I was part of. Noticed they added a few features which helped the community members be in constant communication or have them interact a bit more. And it was by adding the @USERNAME mention feature.
If you where answering, and directing a message to another user you want to notify that you replied, you can @username, and that user would get a notification that they where mentioned on X post.
I don't know how well would a LIKE or HELP button would work. Where if you where to like an idea or deem it helpful you can vote it helpful or click on a like. For this type of forum, I don't know how well it may fit into. I know the Mentioning though would help a ton.
On the other forum for some time I was a moderator there, but since it was a review forum, I had to do constant research, and background checks on members to see if they where vendors or not lol.
Also emojis, I Wouldn't mind putting a thumbs up! :)
