    Some do, some don't.

    Likes are a very useful way of marking where you are in a thread. They were much simpler than subscribing. If people liked your post, you could check a thread to see if there was any action.

    I don't think we needed the "popularity contest" page to see who was the most liked poster or who gave the most likes.

    I didn't appreciate the way the likes count came off the profile and were on posts. I didn't appreciate the way, when you got a notification, that likes given and received were mixed in so you couldn't easily see who liked you. The absence of avatars was also a nuisance.

    Still, hopefully, it'll be all back to normal.

    This exactly. I never realized how much I used likes as a navigation tool until they were missing. It's nice to have them back. I can hardly wait for the weekend to explore the site a little more deeply than I have been.

    I like the like as a notice-of-activity in a thread. when the like is about a not-so-recent post, it is also a test: What was I on about there, anyway?

    I spent a fortune on deodorant before I realized that people don't like me anyway.

    As you may have noticed, the likes are back! I hope they are here to stay this time

    I had to turn them off due to a serious performance issue, but it should be fixed now (crossing fingers).

    it has to open a new screen just to see what the like is?

    Mr. Magle,

    I have been "auditioning" the new system and find it very easy to use. The "likes" history appears as a column in my profile, so I can easily backtrack to find out who gave me "likes".

    Regards,

    hpowders

    Having to open a new screen just to see what the like is for is somewhat inconvenient

    That's the way the new software works upon install. I'm not sure it can be changed, but I'll look into it.

    EDIT: Upon further inspection, it does not appear that it can be changed short of a major re-coding, which is not realistically possible.

    I believe most members enjoy the extra sense of communication they get with the "likes" system.

    I must say that I preferred it when likes were shown "in post" rather than in a separate bar between posts.

    In any case, "first world" problems, these are.

    Cheers to Mr. Magle for all the efforts.

    Is there any way to filter the likes to separate out likes given from likes received?

    PS Thanks for all the hard work. If the site stays up more that can only be good.

    I miss seeing my 'likes' on my profile. All of my hard work. All of those smiling faces I elicited.

    Put it back up. PleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA SSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSEEEE? ;D

    I think the other Narcissists besides Myself would agree. . . fervidly.

    You're welcome The plan is for the site to stay up at almost all times.

    Currently there is no option to separate the given and received likes, but I will suggest it to DragonByte (the coders).

    I sympathize with the pain However, you can still see your most recent likes - both given and received (currently 14 days, but I expect it will be raised to 30 or more, soon) - on your profile, under the "Post Thanks / Like" tab.
