Are you insinuating that people are *gasp* post padding?!

I was on top until 2 minutes before midnight. I gave it my all. Stayed up way later than I should because of work in the morning, but toppled from the peak with a couple minutes to spare. Tomorrow night bed will find me earlier. Goodnight all, now I shall fall over.
Kinda like an eBay auction. At the last minute some unknown person snipes you and the auction is lost.

It waxes & wanes. Posting isn't hard, obviously. It's posting content that will prompt somebody to hit that dang like button that is sometimes difficult. And I'm not above begging, bartering or just plain out groveling!

This contest seems to have made people more reluctant to "like" a post, no matter how much you try and help people.

I know! And I'm really quite generous with the likes. I do try to like at least one post from each of our regulars in here every day. Occasionally, I miss somebody.

You mean in this thread? Sure, I can "like" stuff that makes me laugh, but generally I spare my likes for good pictures and helpful posts. Not too many of them here Apart from good reasons not to buy a K-3, of course

But when I post pictures people like, well, then they "like" them. I think that's supposed to be the spirit of the post-a-thon...
When I first joined this community the first thing I noticed was how the "Likes" are different here. Most of the members are very stingy with the likes. If you try to make too much of the likes feature there is a dialog that pops up, advising you to "spread it around to others" that you "like this person enough".

The whole like thing comes from that FaceBookMySpaceTwitterHashtag thing.

Me?

I can always use my home made likes.

Yes, that's one version of it, maybe a bit more lively than usual. But the meaning of "makube njalo" is pretty much the same as "amen" - let it be so till end of time.

The "Hey, Nice!" is what is great about it.

Sort of a thumbs up plus!

I have male friends who are in their 20s and 30s who are into My Little Pony. They are known as Bronies. I don't get it, but they harm no one, so Ohh well, let them have their fun!
By the logic that we are following of maturation, I guess they will lose their virginity in the next few years.

This is the most amazing brony artifact I have ever seen.
