    It happens seemingly randomly for the same threads: sometimes the button is there and then sometimes it disappears.

    I suspect there is some sort of knob in the forum settings that enables this behaviour.

    Here is an example of this. Clearly, other people can like posts in this thread, but I can't.

    There's been discussion about the "like" function a couple times and the general consensus is always not to have it. The better question is why is it there for some threads?

    I like the knob analogy.

    Even though I like lots of things in the "Whats Cooking? Food, Drink, & Gear" thread, I can't like any of them :(

    There was a vote a while back to not have LIKES, many thought it was a popularity contest or such. At the time of the vote, I had them enabled. I thought I had disabled all of them after the vote showed not to have them. I must have missed some, and will be pulling all of them. Maybe later we can do another vote/poll for having them. I 'like' them, but on this I need to listen to the membership here.

    I really like :)p) the irony of this...

    But @Michi, if someone writes a post you like, and nobody can like it, do you really like it?

    If a man speaks in the forest, with no woman to hear him, is he still wrong? ;)

    Well... if you have to ask, you probably are! :rolleyes:

    And who gave you permission to speak anyway?
