    Not sure the mods themselves know much of what's going on, though I do look forward to a neat overhaul. I just hope Randy's right and we get our Likes back soon!

    Things like 'Likes' are simple database records and as such fairly easily dealt with.
    However, different forum software doesn't have the same database layout, so some work is needed for the conversion.
    And this is less important than all the other conversions and adaptations Alex is facing during such an upgrade.
    Patience..

    If it's anything like the MF like Wakjob said, all the likes will be wiped at first, but will be eventually phased back in.

    Also, the layout of MF looks much much sleeker than the old one. MF was using a very similar layout but with a different color scheme, but now it uses this one.

    So 2 months later...is anything happening?

    I feel like this forum update thats going to make everything so much better has been talked about for awhile (wasn't it announced like 6+ months ago?) but still nothing has happened/changed other than losing features?

    *edit* not trying to complain too much I still love this place...but it really could use that update...

    At this point, I kind of fear the likes coming back because of the massive backlog of likes here. Likepocalypse.

    I liked the like system. It sometimes helped those of us lazy enough for not reading the whole thread, stopping only to take a look to the most acknowledged posts.

    I liked it because I could show my support for an idea without having to actually post something. Now I find myself occasionally just agreeing with people by replying and that feels so pointless, so I don't do it. Then they don't know I agreed with them. Le sad. :flame:

    I miss likes

    Maybe I'm old, jaded and was spoiled by my gold rep but I like having a little incentive to put extra effort into a post. They don't really count or matter, but they fill a nice niche between lurking and posting ... without em, you have no way of knowing if people enjoyed your post or not unless they go to the trouble of quoting it. Most don't, and even if they do it just messes with the flow of the thread

    Xaios likes this post, but because doing so in the form of quoting doesn't give send any feedback to Sakeido, he will never know that (unless he checks the thread again).

    Yeah, well.. it's like likes aren't likely to like coming back. I like looking for, like.. likes in my inbox, but it's like liking empty space - and I don't like that..

    We could protest with Quotes + Likes which would totally ingulf the threads and piss off people.
    But MaxOfMetal could make a ban fest out of it.
