I just happened to look, and I see that the number of posts that I currently have is almost equal to the number of likes that I have had on my posts.

Strange....or is it just me????

It probably means you post insightful statements that people agree with or appreciate. Not sure if this is some kind of a passive brag though?

I barely post anymore but I admit I used to post more and get frustrated when I felt I wrote something pretty interesting or insightful and wouldn't get a like, and then make a dumb Tiger joke or something in tour talk and I'd get three or four. Silly I know.

I noticed certain things correlated to more likes. Getting your opinion in before the first page usually meant more likes, as well as which subforum you post in the most frequently.

For those of you wanting to know...I found a way to hack into the code, and give myself likes....'cause I was ashamed that I only had 3, and they all came from HAB

So, my like count is now actually 3 less...thanks, Gary

A trifle.  (Even though the Hammer is a quality poster.)  There's one here that has 4 posts and 7448 likes.  And counting.  He's the smartest poster in the history of the internets.

Take Fella for example, he's a high quality guy, so his like to post ratio is very 'likeworthy'....it's just the stuff he says, you have to realize that a guy like that might get 5 likes for every post simply because he says likeable things, right Fella?...

I must be one of the few who doesn't care if someone "likes" a post I make. Just like on Facebook, couldn't care less. I say what I say because I want to say it, not because I want or need people to like it.

Keep in mind that posts in the 19th hole and BST don't count towards your post count on the left.  There are some massive thread conversations in the 19th hole, which don't count for posts, but can be liked.  Hence the crazy ratios.

Now feedback score is where it's at....but I might be biased.
