    Correct. They were disabled a while ago. More on that here: https://www.beeradvocate.com/community/threads/what-happened-to-the-like-functionality.634169/

    And likes on reviews don't award points and never had.

    Your comments are much appreciated but you are preaching to the choir. I have never participated in any activity on this site with a "like" oriented mentality. I do it for myself and hopefully to a very minor degree the edification of others (as well as myself). I endeavor to hone my skills and participate with pleasure in what I consider to be an academic exercise. Mostly I want to share my experience. I had no idea how much weight "likes" carried in terms of karma until I read the recent post made by Todd and others. Assuming they did was the reason for my comment. Thanks again for your encouragement but I assure you "likes" have nothing to do with why I post my ratings and reviews.

    I need to step up on reviewing/rating places. I do 99.9% of my beer ratings on here but forget to rate places frequently.

    I have a question for @Todd ; Since society members are allowed to change their screen names, is there a way to check if a name has been used? I don't want to try to make the change, have it be an old, out-of-date, inactive name, and burn my one shot.

    It'll start pulling any matches when you start typing. Give that a try. I can't fix any mistakes, too.

    Great. Now I've gotta get creative. I suck at creative.

    That one is probably not taken. :wink: But I doubt that Todd would approve it.

    Sorry, I couldn't resist.

    Thanks, Todd. It’s been an inquisitive and pleasant journey since joining in 2007. I chuckle at my early reviews since I didn’t have the senses and corresponding words to describe what I was smelling and tasting. Big props to this site and it’s members who’ve helped school me in the ways of beer experiences and advocacy!
