    They seem to have been out of action for 48hrs or so. Is this a general issue and if so is a repair in progress, or is it something at my end?

    I think it's a general problem, I noticed it on Sunday and a few others have mentioned it in the chat box...

    I noticed it was randomly disappearing on posts a while ago.
    Around the time the hacks were about!

    Yes I must admit I wondered if there was some connection.

    I don't know if Admin has been made aware of the problem. Been quite busy myself of late so have not been posting much as there appears to be a few other anomalies such as no new members since May 27th. Last time I logged out, there was 'an error occurred' message. Might be a hack or could simply be a glitch on the logging out. The rest seems a bit suspicious, in my opinion.

    ~ ~ I am all at sea.. really, and just getting my link to work is a small leap of 'faith' and last night seemed to be locked out for a while.. After ratting around in the com,s room my connection came up trumps.. However,
    I am not sure it's got anything to do with my server.. ( I am sure the connection is sound.) The "R V Tangaroa" does communicate globally for all sorts of reasons.. It's kind of got to be at your end.. and that the 'likes' have failed to work properly might suggest something is not how it was.. Is there a filter watching over this site ? With some talk of active viruses being spreading a little fear amongst the user's.. ( me ). I would 'LIKE' some re assurance.. we are protected.. I would like that ( if they worked..)

    I am glad it is not just me who is finding difficulty loading the forum site. For the last week or so I have found it is a hit and miss and I often have to cancel and repeat the process two or three times, before it loads correctly. This is a new phenomenon. I do hope it is not a result of some ghastly malware piggybacking on it. I've run a virus scan recently and no harm apparently, but something seems to have changed on this site.

    I don't know about the rest of you, but one of the reasons I enjoy posting in this forum if the LIKE button, and now that's not working.

    Do the Admins and moderators read and respond to to these topics in the site feedback sub-forum? They have in other topics but this problem should have been fixed by now and we haven't heard a thing yet.

    There have already been a few PMs and messages to Admin both from this forum and the Physics forum. For one reason or another, he seems to be unavailable.

    we do read your concerns, but unfortunately as moderators there's precious little we can do apart from alerting admin, who for the time being at least, doesn't seem to be around

    OK thanks, so long as someone is on the case I'm sure we will be patient.

    I do realise that the "likes" are a sort of bait for people to use the forum. Getting a few new likes when you log on does tend to encourage you….

    Am I to believe you don't like getting LIKES ? Anyway I checked and you don't give as many as you get. Anyway there are a lot of reasons for giving and getting LIKES and I guess you haven't found them all yet.

    For information, I have looked through my admin control panel and did not find an option to enable or disable likes. I don't think Kalster or I can fix it. We need the real admin.

    On the contrary, I am just as flattered as the next man to receive likes. I merely point out that getting likes is a motivation to participate. And no, I apparently don't give as many as I get. But I give them whenever I think the contribution that I have read makes a good point, clearly. Either I don't read as widely as some, or it takes more than it does for some to make me think something is worth a "like".

    Someone told me, and I don't know how true it is, that computer hackers somehow use "Like" buttons to their advantage

    Did a quick google. There are articles in there about hackers taking advantage of the Facebook 'like' feature. Didn't read any of them though, just the headline.

    Any updates on the "LIKE" function yet? We are still waiting?

    I saw a news article about people on Facebook who are developing a "LIKE" dependency. If we don't get the like button back again, I wonder how many people will go else where for their "LIKE" fix?

    I failed to realize how important that little blue rectangle I immediately looked for when I loaded my Science Forum bookmark was to my self-esteem. I don't just want it back. I need it back. I'm starting to get ennui.

    Chosen purely out of the air. His name was Booker when we adopted him, but I didn't much care for it.

    Yeah! But haven't you noticed the copy cat avatars that were very similar to his. I wanted to scream at the other ones to go get their own original avatars. But what's the use.

    Daecon did that purely because someone kept complaining about my avatar. At least someone here has a Mistie avatar. Really, that's all that matters.

    I saw daecon did that but I thought it was done out of mutual respect for the show. Who would complain about your avatar? I understand about changing things up. I think horshack is just about done.

    It was Ribbitybob.

    In regards to the like button, we have not been hearing anything from admin for a while now. We have tried everything. Looks like we'll just have to wait until he shows up again.

    Thank you very much for the update, Kalster. As this seems to be somewhat out of character for Admin, I can only hope that nothing untoward has happened to this person or to their immediate family. I'm sure we are all well capable of conveying our appreciation for each others efforts by other means in the interim.

    Meanwhile, don't be a stranger. Drop in around the campfire now and then and share some stories.

    Daecon did that purely because someone kept complaining about my avatar. At least someone here has a Mistie avatar. Really, that's all that matters.
    Ah, sorry. I feel it's time for a change.

    I have a Doctor Who avatar now. Doctor Whos are cool.

    Somebody must like you because you have more "LIKES" than you've given to others.

    As for the 'avatar's..' Yes I watched that unfold.. Amusing as I found it.. Poor old Roberttybob was some how concerned at being creeped out by the image previous.. So he ( Flick ) changed it and Deacon just for the fun of it.. pinched it..( Is that right ? ) I think so..

    ~ Whats the mater with you clowns ~ If 'FaceBook' can stick with a 'Like' button..
    Please fix yours..
    I liked the like.. It was and can be used as a 'I saw this and agree'.. Fix it. Please.

    Withdrawal symptoms in under forty days? Not quite.

    I'm curious, do some of you supplement the absence of Likes here from other sources; such as facebook or similar social website?

    Do you look forward to Likes each time you visit websites with the function? The reason I'm asking is because I'm trying to get a feel of whether the absence of a feature (more or less) recently introduced plays a part in sustenance seeking behaviour, whereas it may not have if the feature was never introduced at all.

    I have sites that do not, but I find that it is interesting for interaction to find what people like, find funny, don't, etc. A like provides that. One share what they like, defines more of them to others and also builds the community of people.

    Kind of like a survey in a way.

    I want the Likes back.

    The "LIKE" button adds an extra dimension to the forum experience. I've been to places that have both a thumbs up and a thumbs down button and I like that even better.

    I don't know whether I can really say I like either giving or receiving better. Because I use giving for different reasons. When I start a new thread I like to give to encourage that person to keep posting in my thread, the more the merrier. Sometime I like to give new members a taste of getting a "LIKE". Then there are just plain liking what someone said, and I may or may not choose to respond to the post, but want that member to know I read and liked their post. And then there are those of us that like to post pictures and jokes, lots of them and I like most of them and want to encourage more posting in those categories.

    As far as getting likes, the ones that mean the most to me are when I really make a great post or response and that post gets 4 or more "LIKES". Those kinds of post are to be strived for and that kind of encouragement is appreciated.

    So please restore the "LIKE" button ASAP, and think about adding a thumbs down button too.

    Since when does the LIKE button sound like oral sex?
    All that belongs to human understanding, in this deep ignorance and obscurity, is to be skeptical, or at least cautious; and not to admit of any hypothesis, whatsoever; much less, of any which is supported by no appearance of probability...Hume

    For myself, the like button serves the function of being able to acknowledge that I have read a post as well as an expression of appreciation or even acceptance of (gasp!) a valid critique. It is one way in which I can communicate on days when I do not have time to post in response.

    'Likes' received have also brought a bit of cheer to my day when I have otherwise been dealing with a lot of negative energy on other fronts. It's amazing what a difference such a small thing can make. I tend to equate 'likes' with smiles or hugs depending on the nature of the thread I am posting upon. On more serious topics, when I receive several 'likes', it affirms that I am not the only person with the expressed take on a situation.

    'Likes' are a community builder, in my opinion. they weave our individual thoughts into the fabric of ideas, concepts and hypotheses.

    Thank you, Bad Robot. I find you an imminently 'Likable' poster both for the content of your posts and for your diplomacy and ability to state the content of any of your disagreements without becoming disagreeable. You are on the list of 'people I would like to meet' in the event I win the lottery and can afford to purchase transportation for my 'guest list'.

    Thank you for supplying those comments, Dywyddyr. You are a reliable entity, as always, in the discernment of perceived imperfection. I concede that you are correct on the first count as the term imminently would be better applied to yourself. Bad Robot has always been likable in the time that I have known him, though it is entirely conceivable that he could become imminently even more so. As for the second count, I rest my case with the clarification that follows.

    Likable vs. likeable

    For the adjective meaning pleasant or attractive, writers from outside North America generally use likeable. Likable—without the first e—is the preferred spelling in U.S. English. In Canadian news publications that make their content available online (which aren’t always reliable for gauging actual Canadian usage), both spellings appear about equally often.
    Both forms appear throughout the English-speaking world, however. In current British news publications, likable appears about once for every six instances of likeable. In American publications, where the word in either spelling is less common than it is elsewhere, it is spelled likeable about a third of the time.
    Likeable appears to be the older the form. It enters the language by 1700, and examples of its use in early 18th-century British publications are easily found through historical Google Books searches. Most instances of likable that Google finds from this period are actually improperly scanned words like remarkable and suitable. Actual examples of likable become more common in mid-18th-century sources. The American preference for likable gains steam toward the end of that century and steadily becomes more pronounced up to the present.

    (Although somewhat optimistic: unless you're talking in geological time spans).

    Likable vs. likeable
    I had no particular quibble with this (apart from the whole "Why can't foreigners learn to spell correctly?" thing).

    You are on my 'Guest List' also, Dywyddyr, because I wouldn't miss for the world, the dialogues that would ensue between yourself and a few posters from other forums that I visit. Not suggesting for a minute that you would meet your match, but there would be some very interesting match-ups.

    Maybe "immensely"
    "Should any political party attempt to abolish social security, unemployment insurance and eliminate labor laws and farm programs, you would not hear of that party again in our political history. There is a tiny splinter group, of course, that believes that you can do these things. Among them are a few Texas oil millionaires, and an occasional politician or businessman from other areas. Their number is negligible and they are stupid."

    Whatever are you going on about? Of course you are on the list also, as are several others here. I need someone to co-ordinate the cuisine and entertainment. It will be your task to oversee so that the occasion shall be memorable beyond all expectations.

    I trust that you will 'Stand and deliver'?

    Of course, it's the perfect assignment for babe but if she didn't kick over the traces and be a drama queen, she would not be acting true to form, lol.

    Idon't know if the "like "issue is fixed, but i noticed that for me the like button only appears when my cursor is actually on that post.

    As soon as I shift to another post the original "like" disappears from the previous post but pops up in the post I just changed to.

    No likes anywhere except where my cursor is.

    Just found out that I can click the like button but nothing happens.

    Eminently?

    the first behaviour has always been there as far as i know (that is, the Like appearing when you hover over it), but the second one, where nothing happens when you click on it is a novelty of the past few months

    don't know if anyone has managed to get hold of admin, but he's the only one with the access to go under the covers and fix it

    I noticed a command that instructs the server to disable likes. I believe it can be found in the properties.

    ' This is simply not good enough... You have been asked to fix the like button '
    ~ That You have failed to act on this request..
    I have reported you to yourself..
    Only a administrator can act on this.. This should not be so difficult for you to get done..
    Form a committee, ring a moderator who can access the administrators pages.. Report them.. get it fixed .. PLEASE.

    If you think this is a frustrating experience at a forum, there are many processes in real life that just run people in circles, with outcomes never to be resolved. It's a bloody maze and one has to quickly reassess and deploy their energy and resources to avenues that yield results.

    The moderators and administrators are well aware but apparently they have no more options to be followed. My hope is that nothing dire has happened to Admin as in my past experience, there has been timely response to concerns raised.

    Right click on the "like" and look at "properties". There should be someone available to edit the "protocol" ;

    I did an Inspect Element on the LIKE button and this is what I saw. The blue highlight came up on the line in the screen snapshot.
    I have no idea what it means, but it does say "disabled"

    The like button is always pointing to the thread it's on, which is the reason the word disabled is in the partial url.
