Hi Ingo

1) Reaction feature is customizable. means that you will be able to change
reaction emoji list via ini. Uncomment reactions.emoji_list key in your ini
and add only +1, -1 as per below

reactions.emoji_list = :+1:, :-1:

This enables only thumbs_up and thumbs_down in every reaction

2) Currently Allura has only react and view feature. User can react and see
the react
counts also. I think your idea is good to give option to sort by +1

Can some other members also advice more regarding this?
