Reaction to the post from @Genux: Suggestion - Can I turn off or hide post Likes?

In this topic I would like to explain how to completely disable the like system on MalwareTips locally for yourself.

If you want to, you will have to do three main steps: You will need to set some settings and you will need to install an addon and include a script.

This guide is primarily intended for people who don't like the like system.

>> Step 1: Disable Like notifications in the MalwareTips settings:
Go to the settings (https://malwaretips.com/account/preferences) and deactivate:
  • Receive an alert when someone...
    • Likes your message
    • Likes your resource
    • Likes your profile post
    • Likes your profile post comment
    • Likes your message in a conversation

>> Step 2: Install a user script manager to remove Likes in Posts

Which user script manager you can use depends on which browser you use. I use Violentmonkey

>> Step 3: Go to the settings of the currently installed addon and create a user script with the following code:

Code:
// ==UserScript==
// @name        Anti-Likes for MalwareTips
// @include     https://malwaretips.com/*
// @description Hide likes in posts on MalwareTips
// @require     https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/3.3.1/jquery.min.js
// @author      @askalan
// ==/UserScript==

$('.likesBar').remove();
$('.message-responseRow--likes').remove();
$('.comment-likes').remove();
Before:

After:

That's it. But, I don't recommend turning off the like system, as you won't be able to see the community's reaction.
