The more interesting metric imho is the likes per total posts ratio. As in (# of likes/# of posts)*100.

For me that'd be (1,883/19,051)*100 = 9.88

This "like" phenomenon is really getting pathethic.


Worse than pathetic!! Is sickening worse than that?

Question should be, have you ever even paid any attention to how many likes your post has received?

I don't know since I rarely pay any attention to likes and post counts or anything like that. I know, I'm sad.

For me that's (1504/9243)*100 = 16.27

Is there a way to find out your most liked post? I've never kept track of them.

I don't really know as I rarely pay attention to my own--but I do like that the feature exists. It's a way to agree with someone or thank them for their contribution or show appreciation without having to post something lame like "Cool!" or "yeah, what he said" or whatever. The forum equivalent for those of us who prefer to sit back, relax, smile, nod approval, or give a thumbs-up without having to say a word.

Yes, I block "like" buttons, because I will never use them.

Edgy.

Going by your math - 69/646*100 = 10.68 for me:)

However, I would do posts per like so likes / posts. It's easier to work with and compare than a ratio and its also neat to see how often your posts are like on average.
So 646 / 69 = 9.36 posts per like
(then if you multiplied your posts per like * your likes, you get your post number again. Which makes me believe my math is correct :laugh:)

Rumor on the street is that once you hit 1000 likes, you get into an Elite Neowin club.
And I'm talking more elite than the Skull & Bones. :D
