How does the "staff like weight" site setting work?

A few questions:

  1. Is it additive or multiplicative? To make it “no extra weight” should it be set to 1 or 0?
  2. Can it be set to a non-integer value like 1.5?
  3. Does it impact digests as well as the “top” topic list?

My understanding based on this line of code is that setting it to 1 makes it count the same as other likes (setting it to 0 would make it count for nothing).


It is multiplicative, so 1 is no extra weight

It should be allowed, if not then it is a bug.

Yes I think it impacts the digests. (@neil can confirm)


Yes, it’s used in digests too because it affects the overall “score” of a post.
