No, it's not allowed:

Oh, and just for the record...

+1 is not useless nor is it unnecessary bumping. It gives the op the peace of mind that there is more than one person that agrees with the advice.

I personally like it when someone says +1 to one of my posts, it makes me feel like others approve of my advice. It is against the rules though as rookie says.

Rookie, is it OK to say +1 but then add to that and explain why you agree? I feel like if you just posted +1 thats bad, but if you add to it its not so bad....

Bob, Joe, Fred
If you will notice responses have to be a certain length and "+1" isn't long enough. Sometimes I will +1 somebody then explain the reason that I agree with them. But in general, I do it so that the op sees that the person has given reliable advice.

+1!

It's fine to say +1 and add why you agree... but it's not ok to simply put +1... not to mention +1 no longer meets the minimum character requirement to post.

It's okay to make a post with content. If your goal is to just +1 someone and not add to the conversation then utilize the "thanks" button instead.

That is silly, +1 means I agree, why I agree is because I agree.

Then you should change the name to aquarium conversation. This is an advice forum. If someone asks a question and they get an answer from someone that has not posted much, has posted questionable advice or is just unknown to the op. a + 1 from one or more other posters (that have nothing further to add to the advice) will allow the op to follow the advice with much more confidence. And doesn't require the other posters to continually parrot the advice already given.
