Am I missing something?
I only see the 'Like' button on a very few threads (such as this one).

I don't even see the 'Like' button on this thread. Is that because I'm new, or has it disappeared already? Was the experiment really that short?

Hello, Pip Pip, and welcome to the cabin. I do not know if the Like is only available to those who have passed the "I'm new here" winning post. Please do stay around to find out!

Thanks S.o.S. I will stick around...

The delayed introduction of the 'Like' button does have an amusing effect where the profiles of longer-standing Pruners are concerned. The first time I saw giants of the forum with >10,000 posts next to their name and zero Likes, I thought to myself 'tough crowd'.

But, truth be told, I liked that there were no Likes. Before I joined up, part of me hoped that the 'Like' button had always been available to members, but that nobody had ever felt the need to overtly express their approval in this manner. Simpler times...

I'm not seeing the like button on many threads - but no doubt the march of progress will see to that

It is true, Pip Pip, that as soon as we saw your registration - we knew your posts were going to be liked. You will also find a level of 'joshing' in here - but always polite. Non polite gets you turfed out onto the wing.

Hello herostratus. Just to show that we do not discriminate against our antipodal cousins. Welcome to the Cabin, on the basis that I do not recall seeing your name on the passenger list. Apologies if you have been overlooked.

Hi, I am new to the forum but have been following the Ukraine war since the start and I am having the same problem as Herostratus, I cannot see the "like" button on any forums. I am mostly a lurker but from time to time would like to acknowledge someones post. Do I need to do something to enable the button?

Hello talby33 and welcome to the Cabin of PPRuNe.

We have limits on new accounts to ward off 'Bots' placing adverts and scams before we (the Moderators) have time to kick them out the door. Please respond to a post with a helpful comment and, perhaps a related experience of yours. In short order you will have posted enough for us to know that you are real and the restrictions are then lifted.

By all means use the 'Odds n Sods' thread to introduce yourself. Have you been lurking for long? Are you Pax or 'trade' staff?

Thanks SOS, sorry I am not air staff in any way, it's just that this is the best place I've found to follow the events in Ukraine. I'll see if I can find some useful comments to make. Slava Ukraini.

Hello there - not all posts have the like button - is that a setting the thread initiator, or moderator has turned off? Or a technical issue?
Thanks

My colleagues and I are currently discussing this issue. The LIKE button is not currently available in all forums and is still restricted for newbies. I'll get back to you.

The main advantage of the Like button is that you don't have to quote the Post you like and put in an emoji or whatever - it saves a lot of space when a few people LIKE it

It is the case that the Like button is currently only available in certain forums and we do not know the roll out.
It is the case that use of the button is restricted until you have completed a certain number of posts. As you may know, this also applies to being able to include Links and so on. We need to be sure that each newbie is genuine, as we are constantly banning 'Bot' posts or those who try to get free advertising.

PPRuNe is owned by Internet Brands and they control the whole system. Any changes to software are done by them. Naturally we (the Moderators) have a constant dialogue with them and the staff that have responsibility for PPRuNe but we can only ask <STRONGLY> and it works out pretty well. Some of my colleagues have been involved since the site was established (around 2000, I think) by a pilot who was then working for VS, he is now retired but does check in now and then.

What is the winning post? My website (free, no ads, no cookies, just for fun) has some civil aviation history related stuff and I'd like to quote its url in Pax & SLF, but I'm too much of a newbie as yet.

I can tell you that the Like Button has now been rolled out across the site. There may be one or two places where it is restricted.
