I'm finally just venturing back here with all the changes (I hate change). I noticed that all my "likes" are gone. I know that seems silly and vain, but I felt like that helped give me credibility as a valued member. I almost kind of feel like crying. I feel like 15 years of membership and post history is just....gone.

I'm with you. It's so stupid it's embarrassing, but I felt both affirmed and motivated by my old "% liked" or whatever it was called. My new community standing doesn't compare....it's way, waaay less. For all I have said on here, that %-liked thing kind of motivated me to try to speak/write with at least some caution/accountability.

I feel sad for all of you who have lost tens of thousands of likes. Ruby put the approximate old stats in the new siggie.

I think there should be a badge or something and that those of you who are known to have had tens of thousands of likes should be awarded the badge. Something. 😔

That's one of the reason why we brought on the new Reactions feature. We believe it does MOTIVATE and build credibility on the site.

Unfortunately, we couldn't migrate over the old data.

That really hurt us in the gut but it was a choice we had to make.

NOTE: Some of our staff had huge numbers of Likes ... this wasn't easy for us.

I believe I had a gazillion Likes. 😜

If you didn't have a gazillion Likes before, you're getting right up there now.

Yes it is!  But it is an exciting time as well, with all of the new features.

Is there an algorithm that we are allowed to know as to how the "Community Standing" is figured?

There's really nothing to it Ruby.

I will post something about it soon. There's just a lot of things on my plate right now.

(Yes, it's a high priority. I won't forget.)

Ruby - I bet you'll get those 65,000 Likes back within the year (or close to it).  Members are using the new Reactions system at a staggering rate.

A former moderator used to chastise me for posting because "they" wanted to attach meaning to the amount of participation I engaged in.  My number of posts is absolutely inconsequential to the number of Likes that I had gained in about 17 years of membership.  I miss those Likes, but what is worse than that is that all of the Likes have been stripped from the site posts that occurred prior to the change.  This makes the Likes function meaningless to me.  If I wanted to put the approximate number of Likes in my signature like Ruby did, I couldn't even find how to create a signature line for myself, something I never would have done otherwise.  But then, I probably don't meet whatever "criteria" exists for the privilege of a signature line.  Some of us never make the grade no matter what we do or don't do.

I'm with you somewhat on this. I've been here since 2001 and the only time I ever had a signature line was when I paid for the privilege.  Ultimately I decided the perks of a paid membership weren't really worth the expense so I didn't renew.  I don't miss the loss of a signature line and I honestly have not a clue how many "likes" I had that were lost with the upgrade so I guess that doesn't much matter to me. It would be nice though if the veteran members could be recognized easily, maybe a badge of some kind?

I don't wonder why not too many stick around for any length of time.  I belong to and participate as site staff for, sites that do not require payment in order to enjoy such privileges as signature lines.  Telling me I am not worthy of a signature line because I haven't donated money on a site that I joined for free does not impress me.
