Congrats! :yes:

Likes are quite a strange system, as certain types of posts attract them considerably more than others. For instance, most of my likes comes from political / opinion posts and from sharing pictures in the Random Pictures Thread. Over the past couple of years I've managed to rack up 2,851 likes, which still pales in comparison to someone like Rappy. :cry:

Congrats V-Tech!

I don't think the likes feature has been implemented for 8 years though :/


The likes feature has been around since January 2010, after the forum upgrade which caused the forum go down for a couple of days. There have been a couple of periods where the likes feature has been disabled.

We should never compare our selves to Rappy, unless you are not human like him. :o


Thanks for all the wishes guys :D

The Random Pictures Thread is an easy way to get likes. :p When the likes feature was first implemented it was only used in the technical forums. I'm not sure whether it was decided to be used in all forums, or whether it changed as a result of an upgrade and wasn't changed back.

I think it would be better if it would go back to what it used to be. Allowing to "like" something only in technical/news forums.
Would make the "likes" more special....

I like that the like system applies to the entire forum, as it rewards constructive / informative posts. Most of my likes are from political posts, followed by opinion posts and then the Random Pictures Thread. The RPT thread significantly distorts the like system, so it should probably be exempt (I'd lose a lot of likes but it would be fairer). That said, I think it contributes to the community feel of the forums so I don't think it's a problem.

Awww I will give you a like!
