    Comments of your own stuff yeah, but not other peoples' comments (as far as I know at least).

    Why wouldn't this be public information? If you didn't want people to know, you shouldn't have clicked the LIKE button!

    you can't see it on the page which is kinda goofy i agree

    but if you go to your notifications on the top look at the drop down you can choose to see who liked and what posts they liked.

    I have a theory - if you know who actually liked something you might give the post more weight than it deserves, i.e. if someone like a moderator likes something, it may be thought to be something of importance when in fact they may have liked the joke that was in the post. Myself I have several (20+) likes from someone who I believe when they like a thread, because of the topic or the question asked, just likes every post in the thread except their own - i.e. they are not discriminating between good and bad posts in a thread just that the thread itself is good.

    ^^^ that may be true... but who cares???

    People should be able to choose for themselves what is and isnt important. It shouldn't be a secret who liked a post. What's the point of the LIKE button at all then???

    Cuz isn't the exact opposite also true? Like "oh, this has 3 likes, so it must be good" but maybe one of those likes is the poster themselves and the other two are idiots who don't know shit.

    We should be able to judge for ourselves like, you know, adults.

    hook, line and sinker - It was a facetious attempt to wake the admins out of their lethargy and deny or confirm the hypothesis - unfortunately the internet has no tone when read or written to, so you don't get the subtle inflections of speech that mark out sarcasm from truths.....

    I don't get the point of the liking thing either, but since it's there, it does suck how it seems to only kind of work.

    it is an equivalent of Reputation or MC status or what have, some forums even call it karma and allow positive and negative "liking".

    Yeah it probably should work better, but hey, it kind of works and some folks get some happiness out of it.....
