BTW.
I realized if you press the return button it clears your 'like', same with posts, kept wondering why mine disappeared  ;D .
Unless its just me  :)

Sadly the module uses the same address to toggle the 'Like' state, so if you Like a post, then refresh the page, it will unlike it immediately. I could rewrite it - will add it to the list.  :)

Apologies for reopening an old post, but I really do think that everyone would benefit from knowing who has liked their posts.  It might also go along way to prevent some of the misunderstanding/nastiness that is sometimes experienced on here.
Openness and honesty is always the best policy - anonymous likes goes against this IMHO.

Happy to revist this:

Note this would be retrospective - if we decide to show who liked posts, it will apply to all historical likes.

Not a problem once you've realised and remember, not sure if there is a way of letting people know, and maybe not many people use return button?
Sounds too complicated rewriting something like this, if no-one has complained, i wouldnt bother. :)
(I wasn't complaining  ;D )

It should be very simple, and it's too late now it's in my head!  :D

I’m quite sure I’ve ‘liked’ some contentious posts in the past, which I would not have ‘liked’ had it not been anonymous.

However I am happy to go with the majority going forwards, and personally am probably happy to not have old  ‘likes’ deleted. However it might be that some people would want to be able to either find all their  ‘likes’ so they can remove any contentious ones, or be able to ask you Dan to remove all previous ‘likes’ as you go live with the new version.
