  1. Honestly, I know that the "Like" button is to encourage others, but I find that I personally press it way too often.

    Making this site into such a social media format makes it a bit too addictive in it's nature.

    As for my opinion on it. No, I don't think this is what addicts need, but maybe we should show are support by actually commending other users through are comments, but this is just my opinion. :\

    Remove the like feature completely.

    Don't mind the like. I agree.

    More options might actually stifle conversation. It may entice people to simply find the most appropriate reaction they feel to a post rather than write it out.

    My opinion on what we need is this:

    -"like" button
    -Some kind of bookmark feature

    No need for anything else. We honestly don't even need a "like" button, it definitely gives us a dopamine response. I hate how I feel like I accomplished something when one of my posts gets multiple likes.

    It's a similar feeling I get when browsing porn videos.

    It disgusts me.

    Many times I read a post and don't have the time to answer properly, or don't find the right words (if it's very emotionally charged for example) so I use the like to send some kind of "tap", to make the poster know I read and I care.

    Could we add a "Disallow likes in this thread" option then?

    For me it's about keeping things simple :)

  11. Good point, but I still do think that this site functions a bit too addictively, and the users might become a bit too reliant on the like button, and that's not the healthiest in my opinion.

    By the way, Facebook do these 'reaction' updates to understand more about the users and hence improve their products and overall market value. That's how they function. I don't think we need this kind of sophistication here, that's my opinion ;).

  14. I prefer keeping just "like" option. Too many options are confusing and unnecessary
     
  15. Don't y'all dare remove the like button. I'm in the top 5 most likes on NoFap.. currently at the #4 spot. With over 3k likes. Do you know how long it took me to get to this milestone?! If the like feature Is gone then I shall vanish as well.

    Im half joking.. :D but a dislike feature would be cool imo

    Lolol can relate to this, dont remove likes before I get my 2k haha !!
     
  17. I agree with this post. I don't use the like button. The poll should have included the removal of the system IMHO.

    Mmmm I normally use the Like button to acknowledge someone that i read his post , want to show some support or I actually like the comment.
    Like alone is fine, but there should be an option to disable likes in a threat (for those who are interested)
    More options make this more like a social media and we have to understand that there's people who are addicted to them.

    Simple things are the best things.

    I entirely agree with @HappyDaysAreHereAgain. I would like to add the best answer option to those things. The best answer requires:12 likes, 5 thanks, 7 motivating. Alexander, you'll be the first one who would ever add such things!
     
  20. thanks!! Alexander fighting the fight for us!!
