The new Thank/Like system

Rate this Entry
While I like the concept itself, the bars look really unnecessary. It's taking up space and the extra bars make the thread look unorganized and cluttered. I prefer the simple design of posts having Like buttons within them.

And the Thank buttons might result in too much unnecessary notifications. I get that when you got a like, you want to thank the person for the like, but that's going to result in piles of notifications that don't require attention (like a post quote).

I wish there were an option to give likes the way before the change.

    Yeah, it needs work. I'm sure things will be tweaked in due course.

    Yeah, I don't quite understand it much either. The original Like system was fine if you ask me, so I'm not so sure what prompted this change. Seems like bit of a hassle.

    I couldn't agree more. It just makes the threads look even more cluttered, and on top of that I woke up to 29 notifications today.

    I don't like how despite VM's becoming possible to like, you can't like a post on blogs any more.

    I agree, the new system looks weird and makes the threads more cluttered and confusing.

    While I like the fact that Social Groups and VMs can get liked now, it is no longer possible on blogs.
    Also, the way notifications are shown is something I don't really like. You see which person Thanked/Liked, but have to click a link to see the post that was Thanked/Liked, which leads you to a page you must search whole to find the post. Previously, you could see the post right away.
    And yes, user profiles and threads look more cluttered now.
    The one-off 600 notifications I received I don't mind much.

    It is fine either way to me. I would just like to have my 4k likes back.
