Reactions count as likes?


I feel this a gap as the reactions doesn’t count as likes. This can cause some unexpected issue like if user use only reactions not :heart: than automatic trust level reach won’t work. We have some members who doesn’t like to use :heart: and always use :+1: instead. They can’t reach the trust level 3 by automatically if we use the default trust level settings.

I am not sure the best idea to count it as likes but some kind of count would be nice which can affect to the core values.

Is there any plan to integrate it more to the core?

For now I set the tl2 requires likes given and tl3 requires likes given values to 0.

Thank you :slightly_smiling_face:


That is asked at least few times. But my solution was same that you did, but the reason for that was different — calculating likes doesn’t tell anything else than someone is

  • diligent when giving likes
  • telling generally liked things to get likes, and that is not same as good or even useful
