    I share sulev's opinion and tried (several times) to give a like to his/her post. The like was not accepted by the application.
    My like to another poster shoved immediately after refreshing the screen. Application glitch?

    @Sundrop, have you tried again as this should not happen and gives rise to people thinking this is a biased thread, which it is not. Healthy debate is important on the forums.
    If it does not work on another attempt then I think a forums administrator @Daniel Mosquin should take a look.

    After a couple of new attempts the like was finally accepted.
    Unusual!

    @Sundrop, that's good. Just a glitch then! I did inform Daniel Mosquin and moderators, he may have fixed it. Haven't had an update from him yet though.

    Yes, it would be interesting to know what was the nature of the problem.

    Daniel hasn't logged on since July 23. I have confirmed that he is away and forgot to tell us.

    Nothing has changed with the forum software. The only possibility I can think is that you attempted to log into the site when it was down a few weeks ago for server maintenance on short notice, and your cached javascript files glitched out temporarily.

    Thankyou Daniel, I have been hoping for technical reason behind this.

    OK, Gremlins.
    They are a well-known issue.
    :)

    @Daniel Mosquin As a matter of fact I, in the space of a couple of seconds, could give a like to another poster. Rather unusual.

    @Sundrop, I'm doing a test. I have set you up as someone I ignore. Please try to like this posting, then reply and tell me if you were able to do that.

    @wcutler Yes I tried to like and to unlike it successfully. BTW did you get notifications about both my actions?

    @wcutler Aha, could you do the same (like and unlike) to my post. I am curious if the system sends a note both times?

    @wcutler I see you didn't have time to answer my questions yet. That's ok, no hurry.

    Well, I didn't get to do my test. @Sundrop, when I set you up to ignore you, did you not get the notification of my previous posting? I have set you back to not ignore now, as I don't want to ignore you - I just wanted to know if someone were ignoring you, whether that meant you could not Like them.

    @wcutler Do you mind to answer my question in post #18? I know some people like and after some time unlike the same post. I just wander what kind of notification the poster receives?

    Ah - @Sundrop, I did not get notified that you replied, but I thought I would see your replies, which was not the case. In another thread, I saw that there was a posting from you that was hidden from me, but when I checked this thread, I did not see that. So I did not know you had replied. I'm sorry. Your replies show up now because I am no longer ignoring you. While I was ignoring you, I did not get any notifications about anything you did. So I did get to do my test, which was that my ignoring you still allowed you to like my post.
    I have liked your post in #18. I think you might want me to wait until you see that before I remove the like.
    But in posting #21, I have just liked it, but now I have unliked it, presumably before you see anything.

    @wcutler
    All ready.

    I received notification about a like for post # 18, nothing for post #21. Interesting.

    I have unliked post #18 now. So you can see if you get notified of that.

    No notification. Thought you may be interested how this application works. Hopefully this post will not get deleted!
