Default Remove Prost

I have debated removing the PROST feature now that we have the LIKE feature.

Thoughts?

Maybe just remove Ace Club's "like" privilege?

I like to Prost a thread. Sometimes the discussion, debate, project in a thread is so good I want to honor the whole thing. Other times I really just want to reinforce a statement made by one person in a thread. I say let's keep it.

Agree. Prost and like aren't exactly the same.

We already have the option to "like" a specific post. I don't think I would enjoy seeing the option to "like" a thread. Additionally, "prost" is beer specific whereas "like" is more social media garbage.

i like to see the list of top prosted threads at the bottom of the forum page. Often leads me to checkout something I might not have otherwise stumbled across.
