    I've seen this before on some of my own posts, as well as posts of others - where below the post the message merely reads "1 person likes this" instead of "W7UUU likes this" or whatever actual call...

    I have absolutely no one on ignore - haven't for a very long time in fact. So it can't be that.

    So what causes the anonymous like thing to happen? Outside of curiosity I don't really much care - but I just like to know how stuff here works.

    See screen capture below....

    Thanks

    Here is another example, where a "deleted member" causes a 'like'. To my knowledge, anyway, no members have been deleted in the time frame of this post - which is just over an hour ago

    What causes this?

    I just liked the post. I'm in the system as a non ham right now waiting for my call sign to be added as my user name and status changed. See if my 'like' changes as my status changes. Just a thought ...

    I see your username just fine - TURTLECREEK as the "like"

    So I do not think that's what is at issue. I'm sure it's not a "problem" - merely a curiosity on my part

    Does it change if you login/logout and view the same post?

    I've also seen the same things and wondered about them too.

    I assume administrators and moderators have a good deal of control over the forum. Do they have that amount of control to cause the action on "likes"?

    No - I checked that. Makes no difference

    Not that I'm aware of or have access to
