- Reaction score
I became addicted to likes, and am now in second place overall
We all get addicted to different things at different stages of life. And then, at least in my case, spend the rest of life trying to get unaddicted.
But I have digressed, if not undressed.
What you are addicted to in modern Xenforo lingo, Professor Pitt, is "reaction score", which is a formulaic composite of points awarded for the six possible emoji reactions to a post. The formula is: one point for a Like, Love or Haha; no points for a Wow, Sad or Angry. I can change this reaction score formula, but that's been the formula since our migration to Xenforo.
In any event, I certainly have appreciated, both as a poster and now as administrator, all the contributing members who have become addicted to CanoeTripping.net.
I first came here as a migrant from Solotripping.com when that site started to sputter and go defunct.
I stayed because I sensed this site was becoming, and then did become, the most diverse, detailed, well-written, and picture-rich discussion site dedicated solely to canoes that spanned both the USA and Canada and even a few other countries.
As administrator, I now visit several times a day (and night) because of the incalculable compensation I get to do so.
