Re: Thanks for the "Thanks" button. Not sure I like...

Can someone from admin please tell us why "like" was removed and all our given and received "likes" wiped out?

Was this a no longer supported app in vBulletin??

I don't understand interest of substitution (the like seemed more relevant to me) even less the disappearance of the likes from each one's profile and why, if this serves the same purpose, the "likes" were not converted in "thanks"? And why the hell the rep points are still there?

Next year the "thanks" would be substituted by "nice" and all thanks will disappear and the rep points will still be there?

I don't like it and it seems unfair!!!

Guess so.

If I were forced to guess, (and I guess I am), I would guess that the deletion of the like button is another swipe at the dreaded "off topic" plague.
A like button is clicked when someone likes something. It doesn't have to be useful. It doesn't have to be sailing related. You may not even agree with it. You may just find it amusing and like it.
I would guess that it was deemed to be an "off topic" tool and a Thanks button for use when "you find this useful or helpful" is more sailing related.

Thanks. I really don't like to bother thinking for myself.
