Should FlyerTalk Have a Like Button?

“Can you implement a like button at the very least? Plenty of other forums have the and all sorts of other buttons such as: disagree, funny, informative, excellent topic, dislike, old” is what FlyerTalk member Silver Fox posted. “We have all this other social media stuff so it makes perfect sense to implement this.”

The renewed interest pertaining to the implementation of adding the functionality of a like button on FlyerTalk is once again being considered — and it has been considered for years, as I first reported in this article written on Wednesday, December 24, 2014.

In Memoriam: ldsant

Almost two years have passed since the last time FlyerTalk member ldsant posted any content on FlyerTalk — the last time she posted was in the OMNI forum on Wednesday, October 28, 2015 — but the last word of advice she gave on Sunday, October 25, 2015 at 2:13 in the morning Eastern Daylight Time was “Would definitely recommend Aloft PHX airport. Staff is great. They also have a shuttle that will take you within 3 miles of the hotel. The Sheraton downtown PHX is my second choice. Nice rooms. As others have said though, if you want to make the trip out to Scottsdale then there are more options.”

Fittingly, that word of advice…

A Poignant Heartfelt Thanks to United Airlines by a Veteran FlyerTalk Member

The media whipped up a feeding frenzy in recent months on the foibles of United Airlines upon its customers with operational issues and inhumane treatment — amongst other problems — but although my experiences as a passenger aboard airplanes operated by United Airlines have been uneventful, I wanted to share the following story with you after I read it.

As a member of FlyerTalk for greater than 18 years and certainly longer than my own tenure as a member, flyme2 imparted a poignant and heartfelt thanks to the otherwise vilified airline…

TalkBoard to Disband After November 30, 2016 on FlyerTalk

“Talkboard will be disbanded at the end of November. Many people have faithfully served as Talkboard members. Many good decisions have come from it, and FlyerTalk has been strengthened as a result. However, FlyerTalk is now a mature board with little activity where Talkboard can engage. It’s been increasingly difficult to get members to vote in the Talkboard election. I think that readers are happy to engage in conversations about miles and points but have little interest in the mechanics of the board. I deeply appreciate all that Talkboard has done over the years. We are a better site thanks to their efforts.”

Those are the words posted by…
