This 'like' rule is so ridiculous.
Yet another one of IF's crazy rules.

The rule was created so that different members get a place in the HOF every week and so that we don't see the same faces there all the time. I really don't care who the hell gets first place or 37,867th place. 

I read a lot of FF's on IF, so if they are over 10 parts long then how am I supposed to 'like' all parts? It's always encouraging for writers to get likes and comments and there are many silent readers that just hit the 'like' button and if that stops then it could discourage them from writing.

Stupid rule and stupid move by the admins.

You're not allowed to 'like' a member's posts more than 10 times in the last 24 hours. If you try to 'like' their posts then you'll get an error message. But what doesn't make sense is that if the same member has made another post in the same topic and you try to click 'like' then it won't allow you to do so, even if you haven't liked 10 of their posts in the last 24hours. Vijay has seriously has lost it.

I can't deal with death. I'm scared that if I lose any of my loved ones then I'll lose all my faith in the one above. :(

I'm not sure what the new 'likes' rule is. Perhaps because I'm one of those people who has never paid much attention to the like button. I'm guilty of not hitting it even when I appreciate people's posts.

 

The problem with IF is we have way to many teenagers (and older too) who take likes, Hall of Fame etc way too seriously. The original purpose of likes (at least in my perception) was just something lighthearted. A way to show agreement, appreciation, thanks etc in one simple click. Instead of several just to say thanks or I agree or I enjoyed  or I laughed things like that you could just click like. It was never meant to be a popularity contest or a means to show some members superior or better than others. Hall of Fame or most liked people did reflect the most popular or respected members, but it was not intended to be an hierarchy.

 

For some reason this whole system was taken out of hand by some people. Members would get their whole gangs to come like their posts. They would create MID etc to like posts. Some would even spam, open repetitive topics just so that there were more posts of theirs to be liked. In some sections it was literally war between rival factions or fan groups to get their people most liked and somehow prove the assertion that their group/people mattered more.

 

I don't know the whole background behind this rule change, but I've seen plenty of PMs about how to be on HOF or why some people on HOF. I'm sure the site admin probably got bombarded with a ton more complaints and made a change. There is no foolproof system and no system where everyone will be happy. I've seen various systems tried out on various sites and invariably some whiny group or another finds issue with the system.

 

Anyway, I bet the new system is annoying for members who are not into these like wars and just want to hit like for appreciation. Seems like there are other glitches too. Hopefully, they can make something more sensible and fix the glitches so that its not so annoying. I remember the spam alert was also a pain when it was first put in. Let's see how it goes. IMHO it might make sense to remove HOF completely and just let members hit like in appreciation.
