Liking topics and posts is a big and important feature on the Roblox Dev Forum. So I don’t understand why there is a limit for it.
I understand that this feature could be part of the attempt to reduce and get rid of “spam”, but I don’t understand how liking a lot of topics/posts here on Dev Forum is spam in any way. Liking a lot of topics/posts is harmless, and it’s mainly being active and interacting with the community and other people, showing what you feel and think about something.
These are the messages that pop up when you like “a lot” of posts and reach your like limit for the 24-hour time period here on the Roblox Dev Forum:
The limit for the likes that is already set is good, but it could be better (being able to like more topics and posts in a specific amount of time). The worst thing about this is the amount of time you’re not allowed to like things after reaching your like limit. It should be no more than 12 hours.
I think that the maximum cool-down should be 1 hour or 1+1/2 hours, because (I don’t like random posts, I like the ones that make sense) after I like a few posts, I can’t like anymore, and I can’t like people that solve my problems for example, even though it’s not a big problem I agree this should be done
You are correct to some extent, but when you always like certain/random users in a short period of time, it artificially inflates the number of likes that the user will get, rather than them earning likes through genuine engagement and contribution to the community.
Always liking certain users (because of whatever reasons you have), can also be seen as a form of deception and can undermine the trust and integrity of the community. To combat this type of behavior, the forum has a system set up in place on how much a user can like posts in a 24-hour duration. Although other users genuinely like over 50 posts because they agree with them, you have to keep in mind the fact that the system was set in place for everyone using the DevForum.
Yes, I understand that the cool-down was made for everyone. But I just think the amount of time it is (24 hours) is too long. It should be 12 hours at most, it’s enough time to stop people from “spam-liking” if they’re actually doing something like that and not just being active in the community and Dev Forum.
Thanks for the request. Unfortunately we do not think this change would be beneficial in terms of the gaming-like behaviors, and doesn’t seem aligned with what the community prefers (judging from the replies above).
