As well as Likes etc me thinks @BanjoBen has some input in granting privileges on the forum. Yes I do believe likes, posts referral’s and @names is a currency which helps Ben to fund the forum. Remember the days of the Pay-Per-Click ?
Maybe when he gets back from his trip he may find to address these query’s.
@Severin - & continue you must, as long as playing (audience or not) brings you happiness . My 1st year playing mando I picked alone in a warehouse of furniture on my lunch break. It was my 2nd favorite time of the day (time to go home being the 1st )! Oh, and correction - in Switzerland, YOU play bluegrass music !
I found the same thing Mike did, as I’ve snooped around the badges section quite a bit, and I hit my like limit several times before receiving “member” status. After becoming “regular” I never hit the limit (although I have given fifty likes in a day) until just recently, and it’s been stopping me.
"What is happening that indicates to you that you have run out of likes?"
The system gives me a message that says “thanks for sharing the love, you’re almost out of likes for the day” and then I have about five more and then it says “sorry you’ve used all your likes for today, please wait — (however many it is till the next day) hours and try again”
I don’t know what the exact number is, since I can’t even count that high with my shoes off… it’s just irritating, and I’m quite sure it’s stopping me before it should because if it wasn’t I’d already have the “higher love” badge
Very interesting. I have seen that “more likes” before; I guess it didn’t register though. I may have read Gunnar’s problem backwards. I thought he was saying that since he became regular, he had less likes or ran into a limit he didn’t have before. I’ll keep investigating too.
Thanks for the info. Checking into it, as are the others, I think we’re all curious now.
I’ve seen this same issue/complaint on other forums (many forums use the same software) and the explanation is that an unlimited number of Likes cheapens the value of Likes and if Likes are indeed a currency as @Archie said, this would be true. The other explanations I’ve seen include the notion that it promotes more discussion. Perhaps. Anyway, still checking.
I could use this feature in real life. You know, like, when my daughter is, like, trying to tell a story and, like, she has to break up every sentence, like, with 10 “likes” instead of just, like, cutting straight to the point. Like, you know?
Oh, I’m sorry. You’ve used up all your “likes” for today. Please tell the story the way normal humans speak.
