New "News" button with "thumb up" symbol on posts?

The last few days, a "Thumbs up" button, titled "News" has appeared.

Might this have something to do with the topic in this thread or might there be another explanation?

That button is to report to an editor with Internet Brands on any discussions on FlyerTalk which you believe are newsworthy to be used on the front “page” of FlyerTalk.

This feature has been available to some for a while; it has now been incorporated for all signed in members.

Due to the confusion engendered by the "thumbs up" symbol used, it is likely to be changed soon. See the existing thread:

http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/techn...ton-posts.html

As this feature is not related to the previously discussed "Like" button feature, it has been separated from that thread. As there is an existing thread in the Technical Services and Support forum, this new thread is closed.
