I accidentally clicked the like button for my own post yesterday. It unliked, but I think it did it automatically instead of me trying to do it. I spent 10 minutes trying to unlike it and realised that it had been unliked 9 minutes ago...

Did you just not want to make a full up/down reputation feature? Or do you question your users' maturity?

Been there, done that. This was a feature a while ago but was taken off because it was misused and user's kept spamming the like/dislike...you get where I'm going with this.

I wonder why that was?

Maybe because you welcome immature crybaby kids among your ranks. Get the administrators and tell them to do the right thing.

And what would the 'right thing' be? We don't have downvotes because downvotes are pointless and demeaning. If you dislike someone's post then you can keep that to yourself rather than making the person feel bad about it.

See, this is what I've been talking about.

If someone is a bad poster, it should be that they are made to feel bad. But you? You think such an action would be "demeaning". Thus, they never get better because they've never been corrected over it. The forum is worse as a result.

No, just no.

If someone is a bad poster -- ie, spam -- then they're dealt with accordingly. Being a bad poster or a good poster is subjective, it's up to each individual who reads the post to decide for him or herself whether the post is 'good' or not. Also, one can improve their post quality through constructive criticism and polite suggestions made by others, not through harsh judgements and evaluations forced onto them.

Okay. But don't switch back when you find yourself overrun by the kiddies.

The staff are perfectly capable, they've been doing this for a long time and they know what they're doing.

No, you're not. But if you go into your UserCP on certain styles (iirc, any style but vB Default; it's working fine for me on Dawn of Champions) and scroll down to below the post comments, you can see a summary of your liked posts.

I checked the styles and listed the ones that still await implementation of this feature last time I checked.
And, I thought I'd post it here so that people will know; perhaps it might prove useful.

Modular [Prerelease] (Default, Black 2)
Pichu2
Sweet Kisses
Generation InVerse
Snivy's Holiday
New Directions
Simple

Also, vBulletin Default does have the Like button, but its Post Comment button is still shown as a scale (for rep) beside the offline/online status icon and the Report button, instead of the Furret with the speech bubble as seen in most styles. Anyway, if a specific style isn't in that list above, I can confirm that that specific style shows the two Furret buttons, at least for me (or my browser, which is Chrome by the way).

Again, thanks for the cool feature, guys! :D

I still can't see the like button, but like Cid said, I'm using Pichu2, so that's why it's not showing up.
I'll wait, I'm not changing styles.

Not sure if this is a known issue, but the Like Button isn't working (for me at least) in Delibird's Delivery.

The like button doesn't show up in the Modular style for me anymore. It used to, and still does on other styles.

Now this is the exact same issue I'm having. Nonetheless, the Like button's script won't even function when clicked. It seems to be a forum style issue with Delibird's Delivery.

I'm going to expand upon/edit this post later, but I just wanted to say that this is probably one of the best recent PokeCommunity updates, IMO. :D

...Although I somehow got a strange "Like" on a post - the "Like" dates back to 'January 1st, 1970 12:00 AM'; I'm assuming that's a glitch of some sort? OR MAYBE THE ADVENT OF TIME TRAVEL; OMG GUYS!!!

At the beginning of the like system, before the part in the UCP was implemented, the likes didn't have the time recorded. So all likes that were given before the UCP part came into being have that date.

i realize this post is 2 months old, but people don't need a dislike button to make someone feel bad, they could just like a post that says something critical about the last post. i see it quite a lot around the forums.

If you see that sort of thing and feel like it's making people feel bad for the sake of it rather than being constructive, you could always report it. The last thing we want to do is give people a way to make others feel bad about their posts.

Alright, not sure if I should start a new thread for this in Questions or Feedback or stick it here, but I guess its relevant to the Like system so I'll post it here.
Anyways, I found this in the Post a Thon challenge in Pokemon Clubs, and its happened to me a few times as well.
Spoiler:

In addition to this, when I like a post, sometimes I find that I'm no longer able to see who else liked the post. Instead, it will redirect me to the top of the page for some reason. Just thought it should be made known, thanks.

I've had the same problem before with the likes not showing up. Usually when I refresh it fixes the problem, but I'll bring it up with hstaff.
