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
done.
Please send me the miles

For all those on Tapatalk there is a like feature on other forums I think it's a plugin thing once it's updated it will be added

I don't like this feature, it's distracting and doesn't give you too much info to be worth it.

I think like any big update it's annoying at first. Can only really test it's usefulness after a month or so when everyone is used to it...

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

Thanks!  ;D
Wow I thought I got my likes completely blocked! Phew it was only backed to 0(from 1  ;D )
Also weird when I press on total likes your like doesn't come up only the original first one...

Now I see that I got the ordinal first reinstated  :)

So I was a nice guy and decided to like someone's post. Now I am left with a big ugly dark black box that says UNLIKE, plus it fills up a whole line telling me "you and one other person liked this".
So now im temped to 'unlike' it, just to get rid of so many words on my screen.

I think that a thumbs down option would be helpful

I've used other forums that have a reputation system. There's a small +/- on each post and anyone can do it. It's similar to liking but I like that better.

If anything I'd remove the ability to like a thread on the thread view page because the button seems obtrusive to me.

I got used to it but can easily see them go.

I dislike them. It makes the page look choppy and piecemeal.
