I'm not missing it. I think 'likes' in general diminish the quality of the discussion, but I'm fine if it returns.
 
Yes bring it back.
No one needs it more than the "SwissArmy".
It is an essential tool in their mob rule.
A tool to provide validation to the Godforsaken trolls of the forum.

Hahahahaha. Didn't even notice. Good riddance.

Please DO NOT re-add it. Turns every forum into a lame circle jerk. Posters start fishing for likes, etc.

I just went to like your post. Even though I'm posting in this thread. It's late. lol.

But yeah, it absolutely inhibits discussion. People will just like you or someone who is disagreeing with you rather than comment themselves.

What's the most 'liked' post or thread in the history of this forum? Now that we have some downtime with no pressure of getting likes, I'd like to read up on it.

Not only "Like". I also want a "Dislike" button.
This will make the place toxic.... and I will stop posting due to anger from dislike barrages.

I am not one who gets many "likes" but I do like the "like" button. I find myself very confused without it as I can't tell when people are posting something I should take seriously.

Yes. Why did they recently put more options and then suddenly removed everything away, even the basis ?

They could also just bring it back and suspend "like" privileges for certain posters when they are "liking" the wrong things? I'm not sure why it was removed in the first place. I never really noticed it being an issue with bullying or anything. Maybe on posts about suresh, but I always figured he didn't care.

and this.

not necessarily everyone abuses it, but overall drags the Like feature the low level of discussion even further down, in social media.
in an environment that has a huge problem with fanbases and bias, it is particularly silly to have.

...but i'm pretty sure there is just a maintenance going on right now, and the stupid thing will be back soon. :cautious:

We need the like button back! Users need multiple ways to express our support of a thread/post, instead of having to comment.
what? why that?


...a really useful thing instead would be a feature for short direct-comments ("tweets") to posts (that you can fold out, like on Twitter or like with a Spoiler).
that way the poster would at least need to open mouth (and reveal his/her level and position to an extent), not just press button. (posting a "+1" or "thumb" would work only sometimes, but often look stupid ...and rightfully so.)

but that's not its only advantage over Likes. you could also use it to add relevant info or for corrections or to address the poster more personally ...all without overloading the threads! actually it would even make the threads much tidier in general.
