a percentage based on what?
on the user with most likes?

that would be troll users posting a lot on EoF, not useful users.
It won't really show if the user is important/well known/good reputation/whatever, users are giving likes for stupid things.

Or a percentage without counting the posts in the EoF, why not.

Some users (recently, actually 2 users... looking at you troopage and Margen67) are even giving likes to ALL posts from ALL users .....
Why are they spamming the like button even when there's nothing to like?

Well the EoF would not count, but you could have likes/post count. I was not thinking that would be much of a problem.

Like system is easily abused.
People that actually contribute to the site get far less likes then some twat posting a witty reply on a news article.
Or someone who only speaks in puns >_>

There's really no solid way to measure peoples helpfulness unfortunately.
Even tho the idea of a like percentage is pretty good.

It's just easy to exploit and abuse which trolls will deffo do.

Oh yeah, I can't wait the hundreds of posts like "if I helped you, pls like this post pls pretty pls", or the fake stories, or the shitty "like if blahblah". A mix between Facebook, Reddit and YouTube. No wonder someone asked me to make an Userstyle to remove the Likes under the posts.




Like if ur not gay xddd
