I think it'd be nice to have an 'ok' post. Like 'I see your post but I don't like it or dislike it, I just see it'. You know for when people tell the GM about when they're gonna post or that they're going to be away from the internet for awhile or something.

Fantasy is my #1; I will give almost anything a chance if it has strong fantasy elements. Post apocalyptic, superhero, alternate history, science fantasy, some supernatural, romance, and a few fandoms (especially Game of Thrones) are also likely to catch my eye.
There are already ambiguous post rating buttons that could serve this purpose. Bucket of Rainbows and You Get a Cookie can both be thrown randomly at posts without necessarily inferring any particular response to the message.

Alternatively, a like rating sounds perfectly reasonable to acknowledge someone saying when they're going to post. GMs like having communication and people posting in their roleplays, no?

A thank rating for the notice of absence could work too, as in "thanks for letting me know."

Adding some kind of generic notification would be nearly worthless clutter given the fact that post ratings already exist and we already have more of those than is really needed.

On top of which, such a rating could end up being used as a negative anyway's.

Because some people could intend it in a very cynical "I acknowledge your words mortal" sort of manner.
