I'll vager a guess the original system went from ūü¶Ą to ūüźĖ and ¬†instead of removing it for whatever reason ling added 4 similar orbs.

 

Also I am an oldhat who prefers writing a post saying thank you instead of just pressing a button.

Political correctness. You can't just have a blue face representing all nations.

It wouldn’t surprise me.

I like the above post enough to react to it, but not any more than the powerup I reacted with, thus demonstrating a possible use case for the four reactions available

It's ok to like posts and it's ok to quote person to say "thank you" and ect. I don't see any problems here.

You mean like, "like like", like?

i use those 4 orbs as ways of rating a post. soulsphere is the standard like, megasphere means like a lot, and invul means it kicks ass. not sure about the blursphere yet, i just use it for picture-heavy posts.

Well, this is how I interpret that when I saw it. I thought maybe in the future these 4 would have different meanings, but it's problematic to "fix" the given ones, but I guess as long as they remain positive, everything should be fine.

I just picked my favorite one to like posts with, so I like posts with the invulnerability. A couple times I've gone with a different one (blur sphere, mostly) as a joke of sorts, but I stick to my invul.

Why would that not surprise you? What? What Memfis said was clearly a joke.

That it is being done out of political correctness obviously isn’t that how the world is these days. I was joking too btw...

That said, I like likes, and if you like likes as well, you might as well like this post, because this post likes likes. :P

Mind blown. I feel like my mind is full of likes now ;P

Sorry, I originally interpret that as Pirx said, but I don't use it like that. Also, I don't think this is very obvious because no one knows the "correct answer" except probably someone like Linguica came in and say it. Now everyone is just making assumption.

When a post gets a ribbon's worth of likes of a certain powerup, specific effects will happen.

 

Soulsphere: Nothing special, other than the current banner.

Megasphere: Automatically hidden from Memfis.

Invul Sphere: Grants the poster 15 months of immunity to the 'all alerts sound like revenants waking up' days. 

Partial Invisibility: Attempting to quote this post will randomly quote a post nearby. 

Hopefully linguica will adopt this... ūüĎć

It does. Especially on the MAYhem threads, judging by AD-79's and Breezeep's posts on HAK3180's thread, which is a bit of a problem when there's a deadline.

I like liking posts, but it's frustrating to post something and just get likes and hardly any actual responses. That seems to happen a lot lately.

I guess it depends on what is getting the likes, but I can see when and why just getting a few reactions might feel underwhelming. I wonder if actual discussions have decreased in quantity in general since likes have become a thing or if that's maybe just a phase of sorts.

On top of all that, I can no longer like posts with my mobile phone, as touching the soulsphere just makes the other spheres appear without any way to select them.

Really? I can though....

I dislike this multiple orb shit to be honest - I don't get the point, is it in case you like a post, but only a little? Or perhaps you want to convey a medium amount of 'likeage' with a megasphere? The gradient fucks with me. It's exactly like giving a post a 'star rating' which is just bizarre. I never give anything but soulspheres, I don't want to rate how much I like something, it defeats the purpose of simply having a "like" button in that your level of likeage almost seems to warrant an explanation.. "Why is this only a soulsphere's worth of likeage?!"

 

To me, the whole point of a like button is simplicity, conveying a message to a poster with the ease of a single click. What's worse, in your notifications, it just says "X reacted to a post" in a very generic way. It doesn't even tell how how they reacted which further pushes the point that multiple reactions are poopy. On top of all that, I can no longer like posts with my mobile phone, as touching the soulsphere just makes the other spheres appear without any way to select them.

 

I don't know how I managed to stretch such a minor thing into a post this long. Still, the multiple reaction stuff just seems weird to me.

This was worth an invisibility to me...

 

Actually, it was worth somewhere between an invisibility and a megasphere, but using banker's rounding rules, I chose to react with an invisibility.
