    Buy a premium membership to be able to post in BST or post useful articles you write to get likes. Helping people is not spamming. :)

    Try to comment on what you are knowledgeable about. I have seen you on "Scripts" so you must know something about this. Just help someone with that. Also members tend to give out likes for good humor, don't be afraid to make a joke from time to time.
    Good luck with this.

    Some constructive feedback:

    This post in payment processing:
    https://forums.digitalpoint.com/posts/18435478/

    You wrote:



    Is good why? Give some advice based upon your experience. A similar issue with your other posts is they are one-liners. Yes, these can sometimes get a like (when they are funny or the advice doesn't require detail).

    You could have mentioned: it meets all the OP's requirements (he did list them, so I assume you recommended it based upon those?), a good experience with it/why you think it's good, if it has modules you can use to integrate it easily with a site.

    In that thread, this is a good post:

    I hope this helps you figure it out finally.

    Good luck!

    Two things to established members they do not take under account while saying "help others".

    1. If you are established members with many likes (the one that can give likes to others) you probably do not need help or if so it's hard to a new member to help you as he might not be as experienced enough to help you out with your problem.
    Helping new members that most likely need help more then established members does not help in getting likes or reputation new members can't give him likes. They can give him "Thank you for your help. You saved my life, sorry I can't give you "like" :( " :)

    2. Posting garbage in off topic forum answering questions like "Coke or Pepsi" or "Noodle or Rice" (which BTW. I did answer one of those topics some time ago and I still feel ashamed of doing so, going so low to get attention from established members and making my post count go up as some of the members told me to) is not going to make this place better :)

    Any how good luck with your hunt for 3 likest m8 :)

    I have to disagree. Just because a member is new doesn't mean they know nothing (I've given likes to a few posts by new members even today, as they gave good advice/help, and similar yesterday and other days). I just do not assume a "new" member knows nothing and has nothing worthwhile to say (some of those people in need of likes and crying about it are not new, too, by the way). That would be a bit rude.

    The point is the person you help might not even think to give a like, but another person reading might see a post they think is good and give a like to that person (even if it doesn't help them, just because it is a good post that's going to be useful to people).

    Let's be perfectly honest here. Some members just don't have likeable personalities and it translates accurately when they post. If a member is coming across as pure negative energy, then what are the chances that this member will be receiving likes?
    DP as in real life has illuminaries and it also has real unlikeable types. That's life......that's DP.

    That's the point that I might accept as valid as it happen to me to (finding help in other people threads and posts). Nevertheless, most new members signing up on the forum more often because they are looking for help, then with the idea of helping others (not that they can't cos I'm sure they can :)).

    I made a post, but deleted it as I'm not sure I understood you correctly. Is this all just a personal gripe for you? I saw you made a few good posts, so don't worry, I'm sure likes will come.

    No, I agreed with you that even if the initial poster doesn't "like" the answer someone supplied him with, other people might do so. I often do it on other sites when I find someone helping me out with the issues I have by answering other people posts and threads.

    I am having the same problem, I have only joined today but have seen posts which I would like if I could, Im not too worried about not being able to post in the marketplace as I dont think I desperately need to, but it would be nice to give some feedback with a like or two (and get some!).
    Im not griping, rules are rules and I understand why they are there but it can be frustrating at times.

    It can when you see good posts but you cant like them, I may have only joined today but have been active on other forums for some time and had the same problem.
    Anyhow I was just voicing my opinion which is the point isnt it?

    That makes sense for most of cases.
    New member (new registrations) have more probability to be newbies in the market. So to get some likes the are forced to post "quality" posts.
