Like limit

I am not against the like limit I just want to understand how it is determined better.

I reached that limit yesterday and I was told I would have to wait two hours before I could award any more of them. After those two hours were up I awarded 2 possibly 3 likes and I was barred from awarding any more for 9 hours. After those 9 hours were up once again after awarding 2 or 3 likes I was barred from giving any more likes for 7 hours. About 20 minutes ago which I thought was after those 7 hours were up I awarded a like and the system removed it and told me I could not award any likes for another hour.

Funny, its the forum engine saying that you was not liking, you was adicting :smiley:

Not exactly the same, but i remember one anecdote:
Many years ago, in Brazilian military dictatorship, if you delate of a communist, you will be rewarded with a VW car, if you delate 2 commies you will be rewarded with 2 VW cars, BUT if you delate 3 or more commies, you go to prison also because if you know so many commies, for sure you are one of them :smiley:

So, you can “like”, but not soooo much…

What does this word mean @Stavka I’m not familiar with it.
Can’t find any storied about this other than VW being complicit in torture in the 60’s and 70’s in Brazil. Any idea of a source as I find the subject interesting and have just fallen down a rabbit hole on the torture thing
Thanks

delate is like reporting: Delate | Definition of Delate by Merriam-Webster
Also, as i mentioned, its an anecdote!!! Its not a real story.
Anyway, even not point by point real story, but even being an anecdote, it reflected a bit the real story of VW close collaboration with the military dictatorship of that times…
More details, i recommend you search on the web, exist tons of sources and here is out of spectrum to discussion something political. Lets only thinking in the essence of the funny side of the anecdote: do few times its fine and good, do a lot and thats bad…

If I could have turned likes off on this forum I would have, but the platform needs them for features like user trust levels, topic discovery/summary and some anti-spam user stuff. I personally think any sort of gamification of online discourse leads to all sorts of dislikable behaviors. I don’t think anyone cares a lot here, as we’re such a small group.

Anyway, to answer your question - there is a base ‘max likes in a day’ value, say 50, and that for each trust level you go up you get a multiplier of being able to give out more. As a regular @wheelsup_cavu that means you probably have about 100 likes to use a day. I’ve up’d that limit, as who doesn’t want to be liked? :slight_smile:

Thanks for the information and the adjustment @fearlessfrog.
Imo, Just like the Devotee badge that you had to manually award me because of time zone differences between my time zone and the system time this is another instance where the users time zone and the server time zone differences comes into play.
