I get the message, Sorry, you cannot like this post.

I am able to like newer posts in that thread, though. Is there a reason for that, or is it some kind of bug?
I get the same message, it seems I can't like any mods or posts in mod threads made before the system came online.

We will look into the issue of not being able to like those posts. I'm not sure what is up with that. I'll put on my coding hat in a bit and take a look.

edit: Right now we have it set so you can only Like open threads that are less than 180 days old.

Sorry for buggin' ya, but is it going to stay that way, or might you plan on changing it?

I understand there's a reason for the time limit n' all, but there's a lot of posts older than half a year which deserve thanks (IMO, anyways). Case in point would be the modifications that have been out for longer than 6 months.

You're not bugging me by asking.

It is up for consideration. I can't guarantee that it will change, but I have brought it up with Staff.

That would be a very nice addition. Hopefully they will take this into consideration.

I dunno about Notifications, but if you look in your profile, you can see the latest likes you received. (Sorry if you already knew about that feature; if not, now you do. :>)

Seems like reinventing the wheel to me. What was wrong with Abe's like mod, or one of the other similar ones that use Ajax?

Where can I "unlike" a post? I have liked the opener of this thread but would like to undo that action now?

Actually, the Thanks Hack was reinventing the wheel. We simply modified the rep system that was in place to do what we wanted.

Just like with the rep system, you cannot take away the Like.

Maybe add a setting for how many days old a thread can be to be liked?

I would assume it should be this way, imo marking as "Installed" should be considered the ultimate form of "like" in regards to a modification . This way it would then make sense i.e. you can like other posts in the thread however if you like the actual mod, mark it as installed .

^ I protest (LOL) let them Mark as Installed instead of liking a mod's first post... just a thought.

Well done to all involved.

Now if we could just get a decent set of smilies to use on here,
Just to correct you here, we said we would never install the thanks mod, and we havent.


You cannot like your own posts, or at least you should't be able, and I can't.

There are still a few minor improvements to be made to it in July - fix the display in usercp and fix some of the links being two of them.
Thanks/Like it's all the same to me.

You cannot Like any post more than 6 months old.

It will stay that way, except for the first post of modification threads, they will have a longer limit.

What sort of notification are you referring to ?

You cannot unlike, or dislike a post. There is no plan to add either.

Its already a setting (see above).

The next update of the system will be in July.
