Not to speak of activity on the board: people tend to click instead of replying with reasons why they like something (and why not).
Similiar to ideas here: I don't know from each one why he would like it or not.
The way IPB used to do it is that there was a little + button, and then a green icon with the number of +1s in (there was also a - button, but we had that disabled). Clicking the + button would hide the + button, increase the number by one. Clicking on the icon brought up a popup saying who had +1'd the post. You could not unlike (which was annoying; it could have been added to the popup to remain simplistic).
