Some follow-up here on my suggestion from way back to add a Laugh reaction alongside the current Like reaction. It just seems to make sense on a forum like this, especially when so many posts elicit laughs.
It looks like this plug-in might be fit for purpose if you have any interest in adding such a feature. I realise it adds even more work and complexity to your job, so will understand if it’s not something you want to take on. But have a look in case you do. You can limit it to one pre-defined reaction, like Laugh, or a list of reactions, or even create a custom one with its own emoji. Personally I’d prefer that this forum doesn’t go all Discord with a blue million reactions, and think just adding Laugh is plenty.
