Indeed, I guess these couldn't be recovered when switching to the reaction system. I can live with it considering the nice features we got, but it's still a bit sad to see those hard earned likes just vanish
There has been a lot of hard work gone into this by @Palliasso and @Gromph, and while the immediate features are all really nice, it's really the platform update now where we can push ahead with the really cool stuff going forward The folks are resting up after applying this update so I'll go through and create a shortlist or tag them on the more pertinent stuff, or maybe just copy the posts into the mod forums for feedback.
It makes the page longer, by quite a lot. That's the main issue. And likewhoring where people post the most basic and easiest opinion in the first post to get likes, but there is nothing to be done about that without completely removing them.
This is awesome. the asshole in me almost wants to make a thread on Resetera about how great these new features are here just to watch them go off on a shit show for the next few hours there. Great job guys. Love the commitment and love that's gone into this site.
