[request] Bring back "thumbs up"

I gave a new user an "approval for post" today and they private messaged me asking why was I moderating their posts. They asked if they had done something bad to warrant my "approval". I admit the new format is confusing and is not nearly as gratifying or as intuitive as a "thumbs up".

Can we bring it back? Approvals are so cold and non-reflective of what that button actually means. Thumbs up is much better and will cause less confusion among newbies and oldies alike...

Re: Bring back "thumbs up"

Eh, I might have agreed when this change was first made, but I doubt many people are confused by it now.

*disapprove*

I'm not a President to "approve this message"
Give simple "thumbs up" back...

Really? I don't think the newer format is THAT confusing, it's pretty self explanatory.

However, I will *sign* for this as I don't care either way.
