Currently on the DevForum, we have a like limit. From what I’ve heard, you can only have 50 likes a day to use.
This is mostly fine, however this limit also applies to DMs. Me and @GamersInternational, @Ty_Scripts, and some others have a little “groupchat” using DevForum messages. It got pretty big to the point where we have about 2 messages with 500- replies. There’s a 500 reply limit which is also pretty annoying, we have almost 3 entire “topics”.
There is no reason to have the like limit affected by likes inside DMs. Especially since Likes that come from DMs don’t count on your profile at all.
Inside DMs, Likes are a way to “mark as read”, or to agree with someone. That’s why I don’t think likes that are given inside DMs should take away from your daily max likes.
Everything else about Likes, like not showing up at all in your profile like I said, doesn’t affect the rest of the DevForum, however, it affects in the sense of limiting your like count. Limits per second and shoud be kept, but the entire DMs affecting your like-limit is pretty annoying.
This is annoying to have all the time.
“Just stop liking posts?”
I don’t think you understand how active this ‘group chat’ is. This is problematic even if you aren’t in a big active message. We get about 30 replies every 30 minutes a LOT of times. You’re not expected to just ignore them.
