Suggestions for the new Upvote button label?

Update 2: The people have spoken and I have made it so.

Update 1: Until we come up with something cool I just removed the word like altogether. There's a little thumb icon in its place. We'll come back to this later, until then I owe you a dark theme.

PS. Sorry for the late update, I was editing Hamza's pizza video :)

If you've been following the community blogs, comments, forums, etc regarding the new site design you'll find two primary complaints: (1) its too damn bright (a dark theme is coming asap) and (2) nobody likes the "like" button. Due to recent events in the tech community I thought it would be best to re-work the button to be more inclusive of female readers that may otherwise find the joke misogynistic.

What should the upvote say instead of Like? How about Bump?

- It takes a lot to make a stew

About Papa Nieroone of us since 9:58 PM on 03.16.2006

I've been writing about video games on Destructoid for almost 12 years. It would be insane to stop now. I do a lot of stuff behind the scenes here, but mostly my job is to keep Destructoid weird.

Also I'm a playable character in Retro City Rampage:


(along with the whole 2009 Dtoid Editorial team)

Sometimes I have a villainous mustache



My dog CoCo checks all my work for bugs:



I've been to Japan a dozen times. Tokyo's my favorite place, ever. Good food, good people.



Sometimes I do volunteer stuff between gigs:



My advice to people who want to work in videogames is to just start doing the work, even if you do it incredibly poorly at first, until it just happens.

You want to be a writer?

Write daily. Eventually, you become a writer. Don't overthink it, that's all there is to it.

Live your dream! You only have one ticket, you may as well go for it.

Until then, here's a photo of me doing the nightly site backups of the community blogs:
