    I think I remember there USED to be a little flashy light thing, but the only thing I get that KIND OF flashes is the word "Notification" and since it's roughly the same size and everything as the "Welcome, MFB" part; I don't even notice.

    Guess I'm weird

    I was caught a bit off guard by the "like" system when it was first implemented, but it didn't take too long for me to find its value.

    I think that it raises the significance of reputation/thanks...albeit at the cost of faster increases in rep.

    The only thing I think that could be changed is to just make it so that EVERYONE, upon entry to the site, knows how to use rep and what its point is...people usually have to ask "what's that there colored bar thang full o' squares and the like?", and not everyone reads the thread where it's explained.

    Gave it some time and, yeah, do not like. :noplease:


    Rep system was good enough and didn't flood the thread area with more visual noise. I've always appreciated that the average poster on here doesn't have a 15-year old girl's myspace page from 2005 for a sig. line. Don't think we need to make up for that with the annoying grey box of "like".

    ^Guess I'll never get my second rep bar. :(

    I don't mind the like system but I miss the satisfaction of getting "rep points"...

    E: I know we can still get repped but it doesn't happen as often...

    My reps to likes ratio as of late is deplorable. *puts on sad face*
