It still shows on your profile. But I see what you mean....It is gone from your individual post.

Maybe they decided that it wasn’t necessary, or a distraction. Don’t know. If you want an answer, just send a message to bmudd14474 bmudd14474 .

Good question. I like seeing the reaction score of members. To me that's more interesting than
how many messages.

Yep, good question Steve. I kinda liked seeing it also. Had not checked in a long, long time but it's also gone from the Forum Statistics page. Actually a number of things have been removed from the statistics page. Maybe just too much stuff to keep up with?

Never saw it as a competition thing. To me it showed how many people liked and appreciated what I was doing. And I was damned proud of it.
I agree . Same here .

It doesn't really bother me either way, but I do think likes have been cheapened over the years. It used to be you were only allowed to like so many times in a day(I think 10). So the numbers weren't so inflated.

As for the amount of responses goes at least that shows your participation in the forums. So I guess I like that one better.

That should all be hard-coded in the forums program. So it's done automatically.

I never knew they were limited to x amount per day so as not to inflate the numbers. That's a great idea. When did that go away?

I'm not sure when, but sometime before the forum changed formats.

That is 100% accurate from my perspective. Well stated.

All too true. Ya see some people just hitting the "like" button on everything they read. As much as I enjoyed seeing people's reaction scores, I did take them with a small grain of salt due to this.

I figured as much but was somewhat trying to give a reason for the admins that it was removed :emoji_wink:

It used to be "points" as opposed to "likes" and yes, there was only a limited number of points you could pass out in a day. Don't really know when or why it changed but it has certainly changed. Not that the change is a bad thing in any way, it's just a different format now.

I've noticed reaction scores before but honestly didn't know what they meant or how the scoring process worked. After reading this thread, can I assume it is a ratio of likes to posts?

It's not a ratio, It's the amount of times members have hit the like button on your posts.

If it is used properly. It shows how many times someone has liked your posts. Be it a recipe, info on an item, picture, etc, etc

I'm in the habit of giving a "like" to folks who make a nice comment on my posts.
I don't individually thank everyone who "likes" something I did or said. That should be understood and I'm not that chatty.
I'll continue that habit.
I can be wrong (ask my wife), but I'm thinking there's some sort of fragile ego political correctness thing going on....
