Did I miss it before or did the Community just add Like buttons next to replies in Discussion items and get rid of the "Best Answer" button? 

I think a lot of people don't select "Best Answer" because it excludes other good replies and sometimes it doesn't apply because the replies are not really answers. 

I "Like" it!

How does this affect the "Select x Best Answers" and "Receive x Best Answers" badges?
