Treat Ideas comments like Forum threads

By Justin James on 5 Aug 2015
Would be great to give "Thumbs Up" and "Thumbs Down" votes to comments in "Ideas" as well as to have them count towards the leaderboard rankings like forum comments do.

Isn't the like for that?

But the "Like" reffers only the idea J., not all the comments =/

Andre -

Correct... that's the difference. I'd love to be able to like your comment, but I can't. :D

I assume it's because you want to identify the improvements/suggestion/alteration of an idea?

Three reasons:

1: Consistent UI/functionality accross the app.

2: The leaderboard measures forum thread activity very differently from idea thread activity, should be the same.

3: The forum system is much more full featured, offering quoted replies, "liking" of individual comments, the ability to delete a post after it has been made, etc. etc. etc.
