Default A quick way to show you care? :)

I was thinking, if vBulletin let us, maybe we can have something similar to Facebook pokes? We could have WI hugs. All we have to do is go to the profile and next to their username says "hug". It also could be when you click on your name, a quick option.

What do you think? It could be useful for:
- Quick and easy appreciation, similar to a rep, but you don't get a "badge" or anything for it.
- Good for when your on the go, and you just won't to show a friend you care.
- Remember this is totally optional, so even if it does happen, you don't need to use it.
- And just a cute little idea.

Other reasons by our wonderful supporters!

I think also, in light of autism awareness month, some members are not very comfortable with starting up conversations with a VM, and this is a nice alternative. It's also nice for members who are not as comfortable with the English language.
I know that quite a few times lately, I've wanted to send messages of friendship to members who, for whatever reason (banned from VMs, or the reasons stated above), I can't send them an encouraging message easily. It would be a nice way to connect.

I think Weberlily makes a good point, but hasn't everybody at some point not known what to say or how to say it so they just gave up on writing a message at all? I mean if you just wanted to let somebody that you haven't really met know that they belong or just to add a little happiness to their day without having to stumble while trying to think of something to write to them. This would encourage those who aren't as comfortable starting conversations with people they don't know as great to be able to express their thoughtfulness without making them have to reach outside of what they feel comfortable doing.

I completely agree with this,
being a really shy person myself, it's sometimes hard for me to just start up a conversation with someone...or just, in general, to VM someone I don't really know :]

So having a way to let someone know you're thinking about them, or you appreciate them, or just to cheer them up a little, without having to say too much..I think it's an awesome idea! (:
Especially if you're as bad with words as I am, haha
Thanks everyone and have a wonderful weekend.

Yes, it would. "Recent Hugs" and then you can hug that person back.

I love this idea! The only problem I see with this is that vBulletin most likely doesn't support the feature... but who knows?

If they support the reputation process, I'm pretty sure they would support this.

that would be cool.
there are other alternatives that I thought of if we can't have this option. like having "hug" albums were people just post *hug* as a picture comment... but there are issues with that, too. x_x

i looked through these features but I didn't find anything --> vBulletin-The Most Powerful Forum Software Available

i mean you could just give them a rep with the message *hug* but then it might lead to random rep points....
