Wouldn’t it be great if even unregistered users could show some appreciation for your post in the form of our ever so lovely gesture? With the concept of “staged users” introduced by the now-shipped Private Email Support spec, this seems quite doable to me.
It would work similar to the prompt UserVoice presents when an unregistered user tries to vote on a feature:
How it’d work
- Start showing the Like button even for unregistered users
- An unregistered user clicking to Like will get a pop-up with two options:
a. Register to Like
b. Just enter email. User will not be subscribed to anything.
