12. If you're seriously gushing over a post, consider liking it twice or more. See quoted.

  • Location: The value of a forum such as this one is not in that one can post a question and receive an answer, but in that the question has most likely been asked before, and the answer is available to him that will but only use the search function.
  • Programs: 1. Search on google. 2. Search in the right board of DDF with a general word or two. 3. Read the wiki. 4. Read the thread. 5. Ask away.

Is it against forum rules to farm likes this way?

I am very impressed by the @WonderingYid way "I appreciate that you are trying to help someone, even though it's not me."

15. You've already disapproved of several posts of mine, but I'm choosing to not dislike you in return.  "Not dislike" has two negatives, making a positive; ergo, a Like.

@YitzyS what's pshat in this one?
Simple. It means that I second the question, as I too have been wanting to use the site but don't have a smartphone.

What is a like?

  • There's a little blue button on the bottom of every post (that's not your own) that says "like". (this is on the website, not on tapa)
  • When someone gets a "like" it shows up in their profile and in "Likes Notifications".
  • Because "likes" show up in the users profile, it is often appreciated more than a thanks or lol that is quickly forgotten.

How should likes be used?

Likes are a way of showing appreciation for someone's post. There are many types of appreciation:
  • Thank you for finding that deal. I used the deal that you posted.
  • Thank you for the information. It was helpful to me.
  • I appreciate your humor/wit. That was funny.
  • I appreciate your position. I think you are right.
  • I appreciate your writing and/or research. I'm impressed.
  • I appreciate doing a deal with you. it was a successful deal.
  • I appreciate your pain/what you're going/went through. I empathize with you.
  • I appreciate that you had a Simcha/good time. I'm happy for you.
ETA: 9. I appreciate your response. I noticed.

This is getting out of hand... This post became my record for likes for a single post.  :o



Compare this with the post referenced, which now has eight more likes than before:



There has got to be some rule on DDF that I broke with this?  :P
