I have been a member on a lot of forums over the years. I have never been a fan of member points, trophies or Likes. Some forums have them, some don't. So, when I set up our forum there was an option of allowing points and trophies. I declined the option. I would have declined LIKES had there been an option, but there wasn't. There is now an add-on I can install that would eliminate the LIKE option and remove the total from each member's information box.

However....since the forum was started with this option, and I don't know how you feel about it, I thought I would throw it open to a vote. This poll has two options and will run for one week. Feel free to vote, and you can add your thoughts to the thread if you wish.

Thanks.

Again, I would LIKE your post above, but I'm not a big fan of LIKES. If I get outvoted, that is OK, too. That's why I am asking all of you. :)

With all the precincts reporting, the voter turn out was low. ;)

You may have noticed the LIKES have been being played with the past 2 days.....I was trying to implement exactly what I wanted.

What I have decided to do is to keep LIKES, BUT the tally of LIKES will no longer be posted.

In other words, you can still LIKE a post, and the member will be notified you liked his/her post, but there will be no record kept of total LIKES for any member.

I welcome any feedback.
