Why no "Likes"?

#1 Post by mikemarotta » Sat Jan 14, 2023 2:56 am

I enjoy the site, of course, but I always thought it odd that there is no opportunity for giving feedback or knowing when you receive it, whether a reply or a like.

Thanks,
Mike M.

Likes are a kind of no-feedback response. Fine for high volume venues like youtube or even facebook, less so for a lower population of more focused hobbyists like microbehunter.

And it was [arguably] a better one …
People needed to actually write something if they wished to express approval.
