    maybe if you want to keep the same format at least have the link under the FAQ take you directly to the Rules page instead of to the New Member Resources page where you then have to click another link to get to the Rules page

    I still have to wonder why there's one page that's basically a light version of the other when you could just have one page that's the same format as the new person's page but has links to the more in depth descriptions like with the FAQ...

    Why can't we like our own posts?


    EDIT: Why did it work that time?

    I don't believe there is an option for this.

    This implementation is much cleaner. At this point, the only thing that could be improved is suggestion that Nico made -- to not display who liked the said post.

    I think it would be nice because the point of this feature is to acknowledge good posts, and I think the name showing distracts from that. It's more impactful to have "17 people like this post" than to say "XXX, YYY, ZZZ, AAA, BBB, CCC and 11 others like this post."

    I assume if a person makes a post, they like it.

    Hmm. Plenty of times, knowing who liked something makes a difference. If a bunch of people I think are trolls or idiots like a post, then what I'd otherwise see as mysterious, ridiculous upvotes would then make sense to me.

    Likewise, those people whom you think are trolls or idiots might be seen as a genius to others. This kind of thing is context dependent, and I think the thread topic would be more than enough to filter out those "trolls" or "idiots" that seem to bother you.

    Also, by not knowing who liked or disliked your post, you save yourself the annoyance should you know that a troll or an idiot liked or disliked an eloquent post of yours.

    Likewise, I may be seen as a troll or idiot and my name would clear up confusion for others thinking, "wtf? UPVOTED??". We're going in circles now. I only mentioned mystery-solving. It clears thinks up in a way that mere upvotes and downvotes don't.

    I wouldn't be annoyed about such a thing. I post to speak my mind and I'd do so without this upvoting/downvoting business.

    I think what we can gather from this is that it's context dependent. You may be seen as a troll to some, but a genius to others -- everyone has a different idea of what a troll or an idiot is.

    Why complicate the matter?

    What other practical benefit does this bring other than "mystery solving"?

    There might be others who would be. If you were to post to speak your mind without this "upvoting/downvoting business", shouldn't you not care about who is liking or disliking your post?

    How about a mix of both: You can see who liked your posts (there already is a page in your profile that does this), but the public only sees the number of likes.

    The main reason I think it should not be displayed is because it can easily lead to more conflict if it happens during a heated debate. By liking a post deriding another poster, I automatically side with one of them and openly oppose the other, becoming the enemy.
