LIKES POLL - isis - 09-13-2016

do you like the like feature? or do you think b4 would probably be better w/o it?

poll results are anonymous.

personally, i like the feature, but i'm really missing how it used to be. it would only show the number of likes a post had received & you could choose to not see what users liked the post by not clicking the collapse/expand thingy.


RE: LIKES POLL - Steppingfeet - 09-13-2016

I'm with you in preferring that the likes be visible only by intentionally expanding the box. I don't much enjoy the forced visibility of likes.

If memory serves it was something we got stuck with in the last forum upgrade. Due to the complication of trying to modify MyBB's code, this was tabled until the next upgrade (which will come with the new site).

Memory is fuzzy. Austin or Garry may be able to clarify.

RE: LIKES POLL - Aion - 09-14-2016

Just another way for people to communicate, imo, but I can understand why some people would prefer to have the choice of seeing who liked, but then I also don't see why it is much different from a post. If you make a post to acknowledge another it is visible to everyone so I'm not sure why there is the greater issue of privacy surrounding likes.


RE: LIKES POLL - BlatzAdict - 09-15-2016

i think it would be cool if it notified you that a post was liked and then subscribed you automatically when someone furthered the conversation and let you know. The way it is now you kind of have to scour and favorite threads in order to continue with a certain line of inquiry.

Would be nice if there was a summary for multiple threads email notification like, these threads got replied to, that you were a part of in a way that doesn't constitute as email spam, some kind of a weekly digest or a daily digest or maybe the option to pick how often.

I know lots of times i end up forgetting where to respond cause i don't remember the title of the thread. lol then i end up responding to a question from like a year ago oops. or what if likes subscribed you to more posts that particular person makes. i know we can use search but.. sometimes that takes a while.

my opinion:

any formal ranking / judgement system is probably a bad idea no matter how innocent it seems.


that said, i'm using it repeatedly to acknowledge posters w/o cluttering up threads unnecessarily; but i've already felt urges to unlike or like every post uniformly

Smile seems perfectly harmless and sensible to me.


RE: LIKES POLL - Aion - 10-07-2016

I think due to the nature of the common school system there is a tendency to associate numbers with 'grades' and thus to perceive higher numbers as 'more important' but I think this is an issue with perception rather than the numbers. It is only our own judgement which says that a post with one like is not the same as a post with three likes.

I never had an issue with that... considering how many likes I have, lol

Edit: Hot damn, when did I pass the quintuple digits? O_O

Maybe I should unlike 10 posts so I am stuck at 9999 forever

RE: LIKES POLL - Zach - 11-16-2018

valid topic. I mostly vote against the like feature just because of how sensitive souls might interact with it (myself included). Also just in terms of its mechanics and how some of us frequent internet goers might relate to it regarding things like reddit/facebook so on and so forth. But its not like its a problem either.. Having the option to hide likes could be useful to some people.


RE: LIKES POLL - Zach - 11-16-2018

hashtag super late


RE: LIKES POLL - Cyan - 11-16-2018

Tis hard to be the first one to like a post and kind of hard to resist the urge to like something others like.

BUT

I still think the like feature is the best way to communicate here, it shows trends better than long thought out posts.


RE: LIKES POLL - flofrog - 11-16-2018

When I was new, I was even shy to like a post. I was thinking who cares for this silly newbie who knows squat, lol then I started to like a few, then major moment came when one day, I thought, who cares what I like, I just learn so much from all those guys I will just like anything that I learn or love lol Big Grin

Then it's great because you really are not afraid to care for all those unknown people who explain these things so well and get all those crazy brilliant ideas


RE: LIKES POLL - isis - 11-16-2018

I have a love/hate relationship with the likes.


RE: LIKES POLL - Zach - 11-16-2018

I woke up today liking likes Smile


RE: LIKES POLL - Cyan - 11-17-2018

For the love of god don't add a every post has to be clicked to see likes. Make it a forum option where you can click "Never show, show when clicked, always show" do not make it more work to see the things if I dont want to see a choice.

good point, This is more what I had in mind with my original post here. Big Grin


RE: LIKES POLL - Cyan - 11-17-2018

Thanks my grey lizard alien friend for the support.

Speaking of grey lizards, I had a podcast where I invite grey and lizard type aliens of the "we eat human flesh" type to come out of the shadows and be open about their thing, surely we have enough people on the planet that weird burial customs like being eaten by aliens is not out of the question, it may raise the prices of some goods but all in all its better to be in the light, besides we could sell them copper and seawater... Copper because thats apparently valuable to aliens I hear and seawater because we will soon have meters and meters extra of that stuff.

Your little friend, Pip, greets you with love for a loving reply. Tongue

Anyway, lets hope they don't mess this up.

Edit: Me trying to assist B4

Only took a glance but these seem to be the ones that cover the topic at least somewhat.

Pip is good, pip has not eaten any unbeliever souls lately, Pip has sated itself on noodles and meatballs, has thought of switching to soy instead of meatballs but the package costs more, though it has more in it is still more expensive. Pip dreams of cooking for Gordon Ramsey and getting at least a passable grade. Pip would make salad, potato and steak, spaghetti and sauce, and lembas bread. All others are self explanatory but lembas bread is bread where one third of the dough is various spices mixed with a distinctly paprika aftertaste so all the vitamins make you feel full from all the spices, cooked into white organic dough and lightly heated in the oven with a piece of creamy cheese on top. Pip would be content to get a "edible" or "passable" grade. Pip does not believe he will have opportunity to do so, pip is saddened by this but retains cuteness, nothing like having horns and being cute, like Chibi-Slaanesh.

After I watched:





I can't help but make the conection every time one mentions the other.

Also, pip would love to look like this but will agree that even with good makeup pip would look like a chubby waifu so pip would like to congratulate an obvious species similar for a smashing job of looking like pip.
