I guess it only got rid of the +1s not the -1s
You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used to start a religious discussion.

Can we have a poll: Keep or Ditch (insert members nic)?

Go ahead and start one.
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

Fair warning - Any PMs sent in response to forum posts are fair game for ridicule in public.

IMHO i think that likes prove nothing except for the fact that it shows that person has a random posts that other people liked, it doesnt prove knowledge on deals, CC's, etc...
HT's usually prove knowledge on deals and stars and posts usually prove experince on DDF and therefore more trusted on a variety of  questions that pertain to for example CC's etc...
the only thing that would work is if a specific thread(not individiual) has likes or thumbs up and down, to prove the importance of the thread or how good of a deal it is.

The like button is a bit distracting for me, I vote to get rid of it.

Coming from someone who has 1 Like.  :P
HT's are meaningless.  ;)

Virtually always use tapa. Never see any like button. I'd prefer to keep the +1s going.

Btw, how many people like me?

Dislike the likes, would like to see it gone. Makes the page way too busy, maybe good to introduce for your website on deals, not for forums.

I'm accessing the forums now from my computer for the first time in a while. I can see why it's annoying, though not enough to take it down.

Though I'm gonna guess there might be a future DO with Dan for the person with the most like. So I'll give 100 miles to anyone who likes any post I make.  :P
Hey there! I am using DansDeals Forums.
