Adding emoji(Thumb up, Thumb down, heart, etc.) to comments like GitHub can make the comment more readable.
This feature can make the most helpful comment more obvious which can greatly save time.

I see no advantage to being able to upvote comments with a thumbs-up, since this is not reddit. And I fail to see how it would make comments more "readable" -- they are already readable due to being written in English, perhaps you mean they would be more "skimmable"?

And we already have pinned comments to ensure people see the most important comments containing information the package maintainer considers crucial.

That being said, I got multiple requests to make the comments more feautre-rich. I am not opposed to adding additional features if there is (concrete) evidence that such a feature would add value to aurweb. Maybe links to at least two or three examples where such a new feature would have helped a lot?

@eschwartz I think you're right, my bad, what I mean "readable" should be "skimmable".
The main reason I open this feature request is that I've meet some situations, in which I have to read every single comment to solve my problem.
And when I find some comments are useful, I just can't let others know it's really useful.
In this situation, let people make some little reactions to the comment may be helpful.

The GitHub issue is good at this, I just skim all the issues and find the comment with the most "Thumb up"s then try it. And I find it's often what I really need.

Also, this feature can make more people feel they're involved in the maintenance of this package, which I think is good to the community.

@lfleischer I think you want me to show some examples that emoji reactions are helpful, am I right?
Like [this](, in this case, this [commnet]( has the most positive reactions, it's really helps me to solve my problem and I don't have to read every comment.
