proSilver always had Image and Image since 3.0 already, but never made use of it.

This would trigger an email notification for anyone subscribed to the topic, and they'd have to login and check the forum only to see that the post didn't add any discussion.

Adding a +1/like would allow them to give their support without triggering any emails or getting in the way and breaking up the flow of actual discussion as someone is reading the topic.
It will also help those topics to fizzle out into nothing though since there is no added exposure, unless liking a post also works to bump the topic.

Since notifications now work in a different way, e-mails would not be a problem.

This would be a very, very nice feature in phpBB. :)

Did a simple "like this post" feature ever get implemented in phpbb?

I see its standard on a lot of other forum software now.

No of course not. Hence the existence of this idea and it not set to having been implemented. :wink:

Would really like to see a simple like post option added to phpBB core considering it appears to be a standard feature for most other forums.

That by itself is not a good reason to add something in phpBB. Most countries in the world have relative food shortages. ;)
I'm neutral towards a like button, in certain situations it's serves a good purpose, in others it induces "competition" for the most likes.
If it were to be included in the core, then, I hope it comes with an on/off switch.
A bug is a feature that hasn't made it to the manual (yet)

Seriously, comon phpBB team. Make this part of the core that people can switch on or off.

It’s been 4 years and still waiting for the development extensions on offer to do this simple function that every other forum seems to have as standard. Ridiculous.

Either you're just trolling or haven't bothered searching as there have been a couple of actively developed extensions in existence for this, which have been mentioned in this very topic, for a few years now.
