What the heck are those bars under my username and how come some people have more than me?

    Ken, I think you misunderstand 1) how this thing works, and 2) the point of the "like" button.

    1) Once a user gets to a certain number of little red hashtags, they are maxed out. There is no ongoing tally kept like post count. So, I hate to break it to you, but those red marks which you've suddenly discovered don't really matter... or at least not in the way you seem to think they do.

    2) The point of the like button is, as I previously explained, to give people a way to quickly and easily participate. So maybe a post made someone smile, in that case they might click the like button to let the writer know they appreciated what was written or they found it helpful. I'm not sure what *you* think it's for, but I don't think it means what you think it means. It's there to help you be nice to and supportive of other people.

      Jason, what I said and I'm cutting and pasting directly from my original post "You get one every time someone "Likes" something you post. Look at it as a merit badge for not being flatulent supporting and helping out another member". It took 26 words to explain exactly what the purpose of those silly little red marks is. That was about 16 more words than it took me to explain to another member what purpose they served. Now explain again how I "misunderstand the point of the "like" button. .

        I liked everyone that I met at the S2KDays So Cal. Can they all get red bars, too?
