I do not want to unlike them, but I noticed my unavailability to do that. Also I tried on one and then refresh the page twice via Ctrl+F5: I see the same: my like still present.
I tried that before to lik/unlike your posts here and after that. I did Ctrl+F5 twice. I meet the same prohibition.
some moderator do not like links in simplest form of plain text and edited my post above to make it over-bloated with expanded links with content, but the link content is no matter in this case and highly decrease readability of my post.
As an aside, I have also already noticed that both in the current version of Discourse and in the previous version, one-box links don’t always work. They will work in the WYSIWYG preview on the right, but they remain naked links in the actual post once you’ve submitted it.
Somebody, please try to do in on any post (for example mine) to like and to unlike in that threads where I met the problems: it is 1st and 2nd links related to one thread and other 3rd and 4th related to another thread.
Do you see any problems? May be it is my rights involved in the issue in particular threads?
Also I did some investigations and I see that behavior on the likes undo procedure changes after 30 minutes after I gave a like mark to some one. If you will test it, ensure that you refresh a page to check the actual state of unlike prohibition feature. Also, may be users with TL higher than 3 can have more tight to undo likes. TL3 users has not them.
Looks like not a bug, but feature: to prohibit “like” mark removal after 30 minutes since a user gave it.
Team, could you please check the Discourse forum engine settings you have? The timeout should be somewhere there, just to confirm that it is changeable behavior and someone changes that around a day ago.
If it is not the forum settings you have and you changed, I will proceed with bug report to Discourse devs.
General note: Discourse is just a tool to help our users. Don’t focus on the tool too much but instead focus on the answers to the users. (And you’re providing great answers so we you for that, just a little warning not to go down Alice in Wonderland’s rabbit hole: try to stay above ground!)
