Start with the good: Site looks really sleek and seems faster. I like the concept of the Activity Stream. I'm sure I'll discover some more wonderful features of this upgraded site in the coming days

That said... I'm baffled by the "like" limit. Why can't I have more than x number of reactions in a day?!? You underestimate my capacity for emotion!!!

Also, what is the limit?!? I tried to go back and count all the posts I'd liked, but I couldn't remember which topics they were in. I find it a bit unfair that I wasn't warned about this rationing system beforehand or I would have been more discerning (read "miserly") with my likes.

PRETTY PLEASE... get rid of the like limit... Or at least raise it... please?

Ditto.

I haven't encountered the like-limit yet (no surprise there), but I'm curious what the rationale could possibly be.

Please provide a recent study from a professional nursing-website journal to support this practice and discuss how like-limiting encourages engagement and advances the profession of nursing. 😂🤓

On  a more serious note - why follow society's trend of making it so easy for those who have nothing helpful or useful to say to hurt/damage/invalidate someone else?  Limiting  or eliminating dislikes makes more sense as a way to encourage more genuine conversation. I have no problem with disagreements, but there's nothing wrong with being asked to provide a cogent thought of one's own if one wants to register dislike/disagreement. If someone can't or won't do this, they shouldn't have the privilege of just passing through and peppering conversations in this way.

I would respectfully ask the AN admins to consider that many nurses spend their workdays with varying degrees of uncontrollable exposure to ne'er-do-wells who just like to upset the apple cart and are mostly allowed to do so without recourse. It might be a mistake to think we will enjoying coming here and experiencing the same (not a threat, just a hunch). This has been a place where you can have a voice but need to demonstrate a modicum of responsibility at the same time.

Thank you.

It seems AN agrees with you on this one! When I liked your post, I noticed the "Dislike" reaction is gone. There is a "Sad" reaction instead now.

I am glad to see the "dislike" button disappeared but I still have an issue with AN deciding to ration "likes." What exactly is the rationale behind that?  I did run into that the first day we were up and running and at first thought it was a glitch until I saw other people questioning it as well.

First, if for whatever reason the "like" limitation continues, what exactly is the limit? I asked this in the bug reporting topic and never got a solid answer. I saw that Joe responded to somebody else at one point that some groups limits were higher than others but he never did say what groups had higher limits and why or what the actual number allowed is. 

Second, if it was easy enough to remove the dislike button can't the like limitation also be removed altogether?  I've said this in other threads but will reiterate here. If I happen to "like" a post I'd prefer to be able to acknowledge  that poster without worrying about hitting the cut off line where I can no longer like anything else, especially since at this point I have no clue what that cut off line is.

We are still working on some features we have not yet revealed, but we didn't want to make you wait any longer to have access to the site. We have tripled the daily LIKES.  More information will follow...

Stay tuned.  😁

Thank you. Tripled is nice. It'd be even nicer if we knew what is was tripled from. Does this mean nobody really has to worry about reaching a "like" quota unless they like just about every post they read or do we still need to be somewhat stingy with them to make sure we don't run out?

How many posts do you think you like a day?

Honestly I've never tried to keep track.   I can say it shocked me some when I got that "you've reached your limits of reactions for the day" pop-up that first day as I wasn't even on the site that long and I sure didn't feel like I "liked" a ton of posts.  Is there a way to see how many posts you've liked? Now I am a little curious how many I did like that day.
