    I mean I think its useful (again, if we could see the person's name) cuz its like a cosign.

    So if I post a question like what is the best VST ever and someone replies with "kontakt" and that post has 15 likes, then I can say ok a lot of people agree and if I want I can check out who agreed to see their other posts or the music they make to see how credible they are

    you can see who liked your post, open your notification popup then itll show the post and the person who liked its avatar appears next to it.

    Yeah, but no-one else can know who liked a post

    it's mostly a cosmetic thing for me, i don't really mind either way. but i agree it's pretty much a co-sign button and it would help getting points across if say, a mod, 'liked' the post. plus, does the "xxxxx liked this" even show more than two people? i keep seeing "x and (insert blank space here) liked this," but i can't tell if it was more than two people lol.

    I agree with the original poster. The way in which the ''likes'' work on here is very strange.

    you can get a backdoor kind of look at who likes what -
    go to the posters profile page
    click on likes received
    cross-reference back to the post concerned
    hover you mouse over the avatar icon
    the user name is displayed in the status bar

    It is intensive and somewhat difficult but it can be done........

    ---------- Post added at 09:54 PM ---------- Previous post was at 09:49 PM ----------

    For example

    the original post by worldwide was liked by infradead
    the post by as20gp was liked by xabiton
    the second post on jan 31 by worldwide was also liked by infradead

    they should just fix it and make it work property, if not remove it. i think its useful though.

    example:
    - someone makes a post with whatever information it may contain
    - among other people, Morning_Star, chris carter, bandcoach & moses likes it

    Now someone that frequents this website would know that if someone of their knowledge likes a post, then it must be good because users like them wont bullshit with you and will tell you where you're wrong and what you should have done. for them to like a post it would be good information that you can trust.

    For me it doesn't work either way, my posts or others posts

    On other peoples posts:


    On my posts:

    and its not possible to like your own posts and i could care to do it even if it was possible...

    Either fix it or remove it cause at this point its just useless...
