Suggestion How To Get Likes Quickly And Easily - Unlock Your Privilages Now

Discussion in 'Support & Feedback' started by Mr Helpful, Feb 1, 2013.

  1. #1
    Ok so I am really new here and keep on seeing people complaining about this new liking system and how bad it is for the future of digital point forums. Now although I am really new and have no likes myself you won't hear me complaining or moaning, in fact I am quite the opposite I actually welcome this system with open arms.

    Wanna know why?

    Well it's quite simple really... You see I am fully confident in my ability to give valid, informative information and debate on anything that peaks my interest on these forums. So over time through contribution and intreraction I know that my value as a comunity member will increase and so will the number of likes I receive.

    And for those of you worrying about getting likes I would urge you to follow my lead and sure enough your likes will rise too and you'll be able to use all of the forums features. If you are not prepared to work for your likes then you are one of the people who this system was put in place to deter, and clearly it's working given the number of complaints.

    So here are my surefire tips that'll earn you the likes yo crave so badly.

    1) Be active in the forum, join in threads you are interested in and contribute to the forum.

    2) Start threads of your own and share your knowledge with the community, you'll soon reap the rewards.

    3) Make friends and have fun, this forum is like one big family treat everyone with the respect they deserve.

    Following those three simple steps will most certainly earn the trust of your new family and the likes and respect will quickly follow.

    Regards,
    Mr Helpful

    P.S. I'm sorry if you were expecting some magic system to gain likes, there simply isn't one. The only way you'll get them is by earning them.

    P.P.S. If you're not prepared to do as I said above and earn your stripes so to speak then you don't deserve the full privilages. And you are simply justifying why this system was put in place.

    P.P.P.S Peace out and have fun!

    Thanks for dropping in guys,

    I created this thread because the amount of people moaning about the system is a little annoying, I mean they could be spending their time actually adding value to the forum rather than moaning about situations that they have no control over... But hey some people want everything now and with no input on their behalf.

    I can definitely see how this one simple rule will weed out all of the fly by marketers who aren't really taking internet marketing seriously. Furthermore I can definitely see how it will enhance the reputations of thosr who take this business seriously and actually dedicate time to the forum and have a will and desire to help others.

    It goes fast, Once you get past the first 100 posts or so, you start to know everyone and its easier to share and learn :)

    This has been a great forum for many many years -

    OH PS - You should upload an avatar silly :)

    Hey buddy,

    Thanks for chiming in, I totally get where you are coming from. The way I see it using a forum is an excellent relationship and partnership builder. The more friends and acquaintences you have the more chance of success you will have. What's more once you are an established and respected member, even if you are a complete newbie... If your peers see that you are trying you are much more likely to get help with anything you may be struggling with.

    Regards,
    Mr Helpful.

    P.S. My user profile is next on my to-do list, just been spending a little time getting uses to the forum layout and rules etc.

    I don't have the 3 likes so I can definitely relate to how other people are feeling.
    However, being frustrated and making useless threads just complaining is definitely not the way to go.

    Thanks for your helpful tips.. I strongly agree that
    Contributing and being active in the forum is definitely the best way to earn that.
    If not for these changes, then I wouldn't be as active as I am now.
    So change is definitely good.. look at me, Im starting to participate in discussion
    and having fun as well!

    The information I have laid out in the first poat ofthis thread will work in any section of the forum.

    Simply join in discussions and contribute with relevant helpful information that will add walue to the current topic and the likes will come. In fact you really should forget about the likes and focus on contributing as much helpful information as you can and the likes will naturally appear.

    Hope this helps.

    Mr Helpful.

    I actually don't even understand where this magical like button is? I don't even see it when someone posts. Is it only in certain forums?

    There's nothing magical about it, if you could be bothered to read the help link at the top of the forum you will understand why.

    I read it, thank you very much. And I also saw the message in the links forum. However, if you bothered to understand my comment my point is that I do not see where the button is.

    It can be somewhat embarrasing when members have to draw you a picture.......especially when it was *explained* to you the 1st time.:)

    some people come to the forum to get what they want (tips, informations, sell..) but forget or ignore to give back something useful to the community.

    I still am wondering why there is a need to have such stringent guidelines. Getting likes doesn't prove a point. Why is there a need to set up such system?

    Because we had far too many low quality users posting rubbish just to get access to Buy/Sell/Trade.
