The screen set up on my iPad shows a contributor's avatar and underneath, their date of joining, number of messages, number of likes and their location. I use this 'snap shot' of the member to get a vague idea of how helpful, or not, that person has been in the past.

Longer serving members, who were using the forum prior to the introduction of the additional "thank you, informative, useful, nice one and love it" buttons, have a far higher proportionate number of likes, than newer members, obviously from the days where liking a post was the only option.

I know looking at someone's profile page gives the option of seeing all awards given, but without leaving the thread, it looks now as if newer members aren't as likeable or helpful as longer serving members.

Just a thought, but would having the 'likes received' updated to reflect all positive awards, under the avatar, be a better or more accurate reflection of the member.

Not that I'm suggesting @Jim needs even more work to do :LOL:

Looking at likes received really says little as they may have awarded for a political/lifestyle comment that you may not necessarily agree with.
Because of that, if only one of the positives is going to be shown, it would be better to show the "informatives" as they are generally given for something MH related rather than jokes and politics.

It does feel a bit complicated at times, I'm not sure whether to Like or Thank a post. Thank feels more than a Like but doesn't register in the stats the same way :unsure:o_O

I've been a member for just over a year. 274 posts and only a rating of 231. So, less than one rating per post.

I mainly post on technical issues. So is the rating only based on "likes" cos I got a lot of "informative" responses.

Perhaps it would encourage relative newbies to post more if the rating system was more encompassing. I couldn't really care a stuff but it's nice to feel that the responses to your posts are fully recorded by the rating system.

If you look on your own profile page you can see a complete analysis of your ratings of every type both given and received. Long standing members and friends are probably more likely to view and rate posts of those that they know before looking at others so one has to build a reputation amongst the membership with positive and informed opinion to generate any sort of following. I have never attended a rally yet so am not known at all on that front. All these factors must have a bearing but at the end of the day so long as you get what you want from the forum and enjoy it, have FUN etc, who cares!

The number and frequency of the "likes" etc. I receive from Funsters goes a long way towards the construction of my Christmas Card list... ;)


JJ :cool:
But in fairness .. you should give them if you expect to receive them. ;)

On another Forum I recently joined, the German LinerTreff, they have a dislike button. Then @Jim will need a new algorithm to calculate the net position.
