I like Michi from Germany
Michi likes this
Phew, thank you for that!
I was starting to feel really unliked…
Likes have been disliked and are likely gone for good and any change to that situation is unlikely. Like it or not
Right, I understand.
But that doesn't mean I have to like it!
In fact you cant like it!
Thanks for pointing this out. I like that!
I would have liked your post, but even I cannot like it. Phooey.
I would like likes if dislikes existed.
This thread is beginning to remind me of a scene out of "Yes, Minister"
Almost worthy of popcorn.
Must be a good thread. Even the minister likes it.
Maybe we can have a button that says "This is not a like button, but if it were and you were to click on it it would be as if you liked the post without liking it".
'E's not dead, 'e's uh,...he's resting. Or ah...probably pining for the fjords.
The like button can be accessed by the following process:
1) Quoting a post that you like.
2) Activating the following keys in sequence:
"L", "I", "K" then "E". Capitalisation is optional.
A short-cut for this can be accessed by activating these keys in sequence:
"+" then "1".
3) The "post" button will then function as a "like" button.
Die, thread, die.
hey guys i cant "like" any comments now somehow. is something wrong with my computer?
Apparently @daveb is having the same problem as @Michi because he can't like this thread either.
Wow, wish I could like this!
Just following instructions…
How about restoring the like button - except this time when you click it, nothing happens?
It would satisfy both those who were a fan of the like button and those who weren't. If you like a post you could click away to your heart's content and not annoy those who don't like posts being liked....
Hmmm… For some reason, I'm feeling like Pavlov's dog now…
I like dogs.
Click...click, click, click.......clllliiick!!
I would be a fan of this as long as the forum stored the number of times the user clicked the like button, as well as the content of the post they tried to like, and then used some complicated algorithm that noone understands to change the ‘status’ of the user within the community in some subtle way.
Ideas on implementing the change of status:
1) slightly decrease or increase the size of the profile photo.
2) add incorrect text at random to the user’s posts, but then delete it after 10 minutes.
3) have JBroida automatically quote and +1 everything the user says.
4) add serifs to the text posted by the user, but in a way that is so subtle that it goes mostly unnoticed except for conveying a sense of elegance.
I think this suggestion has real merit. We could even have a "click scale", with an associated status underneath the avatar. For example:
Has never liked anything.
Has liked a handful of things, but mostly doesn't like anything. Likes things on a Tuesday more than on any other day.
Likes some stuff some of the time, but never after 10 pm.
Likes a lot of things, but somewhat indiscriminately. (Likes both Masamoto and Wüsthof, can you believe it?)
Likes almost everything. (Is this guy for real?)
Madly in love with JBroida; hates everything else. (Has liked Kippington though; but only once.)
Has liked at least 100 posts in the past ten days. (Looks like he doesn't have a job because he's spending at least eight hours per day on KKF. And he likes it, obviously!)
Obsessive-compulsive "Like" button clicker. Likes the same posts over and over. (Max clicks on single post to date: 136.) Probably best to stay clear, just in case.
Doesn't click the like button, ever. (I mean it, ever!) Recommends that people respond with a "LIKE" post instead. Go figure…
What about a "sucks" button?
