    There are so many likes threads on this board, I think they should have a board of their own.

    I don't dislike threads where folks can exchange their likes, like tastes in music, TV, movies, books, shoes, cars, etc, but there have been so many here in past that they just deserve a board of their own. Something like "YouLike", maybe, with matching sub-categories. Would that be a welcome enrichment? There's so much needless stuff around on the net, I think a board that focuses on likes in general, maybe with links to specific case-relevant other boards could be useful to funnel the amount of information.

    God, I'm feeling smart today! *YEAH*

    I think the reason we do this is to learn more about our fellow members on THIS board. We can get an idea of what the world in general likes by following sales trends.

    I think it's a great idea, but what do you mean, exactly? Would "YouLike" be a new section on this board [LPSG], or do you mean creating an entirely new board named "YouLike". I think the former would be a cool new addition to the site, the latter would depend upon how technically inclined someone is.

    My thoughts went to an own internet forum, something like youlike.com. I'm not sure it'd be useful to install a "Likes" subsection here, since these threads I'm talking about are pretty well webbed into the existing structure of the board. It should be structured about the same way as LPSG is, covering technology, culture, style, and subsections such as cars, movies, suits. That's just a rough sketch. And about the "latter option", I'm technically inclined, but not towards the Internet.
