No? Well, now you can. 

 

The "Like" button, also known as "Reputation" is now working on VeggieBoards. This means you can like other member's posts, leave folks comments about why you like their posts and gain points yourself when you write helpful posts. 

 

To learn more about how to use the "Like" button and to learn where you should go to see all your reputation in one place, read the following article...

Actually, a lot of this thanks does go to Monica. She really pushed the tech team to fix this today. I'm excited. Likes should be fun.

Either we all start out with 20 likes, or there's at least 20 sadists on this board.

There are some different "Like" situations at work here at VB

 

  • Everyone starts off with 20 freebie points. 
  • Mods and admins get a like point boost, meaning their likes carry more weight - which helps encourage mods to like stuff. The added weight of a mod's vote currently is 3 points. So, if a mod or admin gives you a like, you end up with more points than normal. 
  • There is something called, "Reputation power factor" which means users with higher reputation scores have additional voting power. When a user’s score passes whatever number we decide on, their votes will be +1x more powerful than before. This is true for every multiple of this number. For example if the power factor is “500," then a user with reputation score of 560 will have a 2x voting power bonus. A user with a reputation of 1089 will have a 3x voting power bonus, and so on for every multiple of 500. Our power default here at VB is 100 points.

 

Also, something new that I just set up is that some likes are worth more depending on what that like was given for. I set scores as follows... 

 

  • If you get a like on a regular forum post you get 1 point.
  • If you get a like on a gallery image, you get 2 points.
  • If you get a like on a wiki article you get 2 points. 

 

I decided that people who write helpful wikis and submit cool images should get higher points, as these things can take more time. I.e. writing a wiki or taking the time to snap a nice picture are cool additions to VB and should get an extra point. 

 

I should put all this info in the Like wiki actually so people can find this info.

Will it be supported on Tapatalk? Other forums have this feature on Tapatalk, as well as the ability to edit or remove your post. I tried your mobile Veggieboards, but my goodness, so many ads!

Huddler is not providing support for Tapatalk anymore as they've switched over to the new mobile site, and apparently it wasn't working well before anyhow - or so people tell me. 

 

As for the VB mobile site, I will leave a message for the Huddler tech team mentioning that some think there are too many ads and see if we can do anything about it. Note that half the tech team is on X-mas break, so I may not get a response right away but I'll post here when I do.

I was getting a little confused as to why my "likes" apppeared to outnumber my posts which had received "likes", but this explains it. Thanks, Jennifer!

I 'liked' someone but it didn't show up on their 'like' count, at the side of the post, even after refreshing,

Why is that?

After clicking the 'like' button, did you click the 'add to reputation' button that appears below it?

Hmmmmm.... I don't know that much about it. I'm wondering if your liked person has to log in, or make another post before their count changes?
