I hesitate to say something because I may jinx us, but I haven't run into the dreaded 'You're out of Likes' for a couple of days.  Am I just not handing out many?

Just hit the wall, although it seemed like I was able to click more than in the past.  This is all just feelings, with no hard measurements for reference.

I've hit the wall about three or four times recently. On at least one of those occasions I was shocked to be out of likes. But I was also surprised at how soon I could like again. In the past I think it was sometimes 24 hours. That seems to be different.

Is there anyway for us to increase the Like's limit, or is there a serious reason we have kept it where it is. We have hired someone to handle this kind of thing in addition to adding and pruning the forum areas people have asked for (like non bird nature stuff). I will let him know about this but any clarification on how it works and what the problem is would be helpful.

Insert manual 'Like' here!

@Administrator  I have not used any Likes/Reactions for a few days so my limit should be at full capacity. As an experiment, I used 10 and on the 11th try I received this message ''Sorry, you cannot add any more reactions today.'' I think the limit of 10 will refresh in about 24 hours...I hope this helps. Thank you for addressing this issue. 🙂

I would like to be have more for a couple of reasons.

If we could 'Like' someone's ID, the Likes number under a member's name would be a more accurate representation of his or her ID skills.

Also, if we could 'Like' instead of posting 'Seconded' to agree with an ID, posts would display as unread only when someone added a new opinion or insight.  We wouldn't open 'updated' posts only to find only another agreement.  This might even reduce server overhead.

That's a good question, one that has been asked many times, in many ways. Perhaps you could find an answer by going to the Admin panel and checking,  Members > Reputation & Reactions > Reactions. Or you might try going to the Invision Community Forum and log in with your client ID and ask them. You'll likely get answers as a client of Invision that the members of Whatbird can't get for you.

We haven't talked about this lately, so I'm going to make one more pitch for 'General Birding' discussion.  This would be for topics like 'Fall Migration', 'Young Birders', and other topics that don't belong in Photos and IDs but are in there anyway.  Maybe just renaming the 'Backyard Birds and Feeders' would suffice.

Just another bird-brained request.  That's as in hummingbird brains, not corvids.

Who are you going to pitch to, Charlie Spencer?

I don't even think there is a batter in the box at this point. :classic_laugh:

Yeah, there is that.  I'll just stand here on the mound and see if anyone wanders out of the dugout.

Well, my Mother's maiden name was Crow, so I guess that's where I got my Bird Brain. :classic_smile:

We're using the wrong sport as an analogy, by the way.  We should be using golf if we're chasing birdies, eagles, and albatrosses.

Hmmm, I'm trying to figure out how you'd score this one in golf. On par for the course???  Mulligan keeps coming to mind, you know...a do over. :classic_wink:
