Finally! When you see a good tip, screenshot or movie you can now show your appreciation with the new Like buttons!!!

They appear below each post and there's even a nifty counter so you can see how many others like that specific post.

A link will can be placed on your facebook wal and the link will direct anyone who clicks on it to one specific post.

Thanks, The Lumion team.

Sorry Remko for (always) being a pain in the butt but should I be able to see it already?

(I use Chrome so if yes, maybe I'll try to see in another browser).


And when we are at it, how about a G+1 button, too? ;)

Even if you are logged out you should see it.

NOW I can see them. I do not know what caused me not to see them previously - unless it was some caching of the site.

Great. So how about the G+1 button, too?

I see it's there. Fastest development ever - now do the same with my wishlist in Lumion! :D


Even placed inline with the other one (while I was typing)

Linkedin does not really have a like button. They have a share button. We can easily add a row of share buttons somewhere later. Maybe at the bottom or something like that.

I come here to avoid  places like FB and LI. If you can remove those buttons from my posts I would be happier. I guess I am unusual but I don't want my posts broadcast. If the concensus is to leave them, then I'm out of place here.

They are not being broadcast ofcourse. Only when you log in to facebook and you like a post the like will be on your facebook wall. Other than that it has little influence. I can take a look to see if it is possible to hide them.

I certainly agree with Modelhead. This is like mixing social with business. I wouldn't like to kind of show off on my social network.

I can't expect to choose my audience and I understand the importance of the networking. It seems harmless enough but if it is possible I would feel less intimidated about posting if those buttons didn't exist. I can't expect it to feel homey around here for very long and I do hope you sell many many liciences so of course the exposure will grow more and more public. Besides, my friends don't want to see my stuff...they see too much of it already. :-D

Not a huge fan - but thus is life.

I understand but I think things like facebook will become more and more a professional tool to. For us the Lumion facebook page is a very important part of the website at least. We'll just see how it goes. The idea was that facebook offered the easy opertunity to get a like count per post in the forum but I get the impression you are not the only one who distrusts the facebook system. You can't hit those like buttons like crazy because who knows where they will end up. Maybe a more subtle single like button somewhere on the page is more appropiate and we can introduce a reward system which is restricted to the forum only.

We removed the like buttons and instead replaced it with buttons to bookmark a page or print it. There's also a link to the Facebook page. Easy to ignore if you do not use it.

Facebook is a form of marketing that is contemporary. Everyone feels compelled to have a facebook page and no doubt it is producing...or is it...well yes for some, no for others. It is trial and error...I appreciate your need to be part of the experiment, that's good business. You have to filter the noise from the croud you have assembled here...lol....we all think we are right.

I'm not altogether sure why it makes me feel uneasy but when I post here I post in the context of Lumion and so Lumion is like a customer...I know for sure that if I made a first impression with some of my crazy art ( and probably some of my crazy comments) I might be passed over for some work.

Without sounding to  :D yes cheesy....I post for this community and don't want to promote Facebook.

As I said before the exposure here helps me and encourages me with this new tool and so it is too valuable to do anything but to go with what you think is best Remko...cheers!

edit:...and by the way thanks...that is much better already!

New features are nice but they should never get in the way of what the forum is about. We spent a lot of work getting the forum nice and clean so it would be stupid to ruin this by adding too many buttons.

Thanks for having patience with me.  I'm glad that you consider our views this way. It is nice and tidy in here!....that's unique in itself among forums these days.. :-D
