    yeah, without the functionality there are a lot of replies that just say ":yesway:" or "agree".

    kind of like this one. I woulda just liked your reply, but here I am...writing a reply..

    I forgot that, I guess they want us to write more and not just to click on the like button... :noway:

    Nothing is official. Alex has a long history of not getting forum updates done by his initial estimate, by a long shot. Granted, it is entirely within the realm of possibility that we never will get likes back due to the forum upgrades getting stalled permanently, but even if that does happen (and, at this point, I'm not holding my breath for the software update to actually happen), Likes would still not be "officially" dropped, only functionally so.

    I'll contribute again if it'll help get likes back/the update done.

    Honestly I was all set to become a contributor then rep and likes disappeared which was a tad annoying so I figured I would wait till after the software update (since it was going to happen within a month or so)...over a year later?? Still waiting to give Alex some $$

    The loss of likes led to a big down turn in my reading.

    The loss of likes and rep has led to a big up turn in the snootiness of my posting [I think in retrospect].

    I've noticed, but the entertainment value of those posts isn't going to earn us back likes or rep anytime soon.

    One day I'm going to come back and like every comment in this thread just because I can.
    But that day....is not today.

    Now that likes are back, those who only post for likes can start sharing their vital contributions again!

    Every 10 likes on a post a picture of boobies should show appear for the OG poster of that comment. Maybe we'd get even better contributions that way. You know, do it for the boobies.

    /Shameless attempt at distasteful humor to get likes

    Exactly, because all the better contributors are straight males and lesbians!

    ...or, maybe not....
