    I would like to like myself, at least as much as I like myself in RL.

    Not going to lie, this thread actually kind of rubs me the wrong way. It's an artificial padding of how valuable the community sees your contributions to the forum, essentially making the entire system absolutely useless.

    I think a 'like' system is useless anyway. That's why I'm all for exploiting it.

    Well, inflating the post count is not the same as inflating likes. Cmon guys... they have banning rules in Reddit for these things. They should be as organic as possible. I don't want likes from folks who don't actually like what I'm saying.

    How is it useless? Once the novelty wears off it should be just what I said, a way of valuing the contributions to the forum. Post a good guide about how to nab a particularly tricky vista? Thumbs up. Create a thread organizing an in game event? Thumbs up. Find some massive secret hidden off in Orr somewhere and are sharing it here first? Thumbs up.

    But why do you 'want' likes?

    Is there a validation in it or something?

    I used to visit a 'conspiracy' site that had stars and flags for posts and threads respectively and all that happened was that the polarity between sceptic and idiot was widened by it.

    Earning 'likes' is a superficial way to appear 'cool' in my opinion.

    I'd rather just post and be damned with how it's perceived.

    Well I would never like a post that insists that a gw1 Mesmer with barrage is a good build. I would however like the post of the person that goes "that's effing ridiculous, learn how to play"

    It is supposed to be meaningful feedback, specially for newblets who don't have a clue.

    It'd be nice if everyone played fair but sadly that's never going to be the case.

    The perception of value in a 'Like' is only that; a perception.

    It's not a commodity which has any quality assurance factors within it. It's a ransacking of the power of communication and completely belittles the worth of a subtle nod or passing glance.

    When I read people's posts I accept their entire character for that moment. People have good days, bad days, be on form or be twats and from that I build a list in my head of who is good at what. My list always undergoes changes and that, for me, is the worthwhile part of posting.

    Someone with a big pile of likes may pander to a certain market of members here (Facebook and Reddit folk) but that doesn't cut the mustard with me. I'd much rather form a relationship based purely on someone's posting quality over time than accept the perceived worth by the community as a whole.

    My real life friends aren't commodities and never will be, I hope that those I enjoy online don't follow that path either.
