I don't like likes

Posted by a Superuser, not a Sky employee. Find out more

Well that is not quite true but the only option is to like a post, I don't want to introduce "don't like" otherwise it becomes a personal attack.

But how about "helpful" I often mark correctly a post I like, may be amusing or nothing about the subject however nothing tells anyone that the post is helpful.

Perhaps even changing like to helpful would work.

I think that generally the context of the post indicates whether my "like" is indended to be a "yes, I agree", "that's really funny", or "yes, this is really helpful".

 

Either way, it's a way of indicating to the poster that their post is a positive contribution to the community.

  • I tend to use "Like" as an agreement with the suggestion/resolution and reply with a comment on other occasions like "good idea" "worth a try" "not really" etc.
  • "Like" should never be used, as I have seen it to support a personal attack or criticism.
  • So in this case - tick vg - great idea but needs work!
