"You've been sharing a lot of love" message doesn't make sense

Here is what it says:

Wow! You’ve been sharing a lot of love! You’ve reached the maximum daily likes for today, but as you gain trust levels, you’ll earn more daily likes. You’ll be able to like posts again in 1 minute.

Here is a copy of what doesn’t make since:
You’ve been sharing a lot of love! You’ve reached the maximum daily likes for today, but as you gain trust levels, you’ll earn more daily likes. You’ll be able to like posts again in 1 minute.

How did I reach the max for today but am able to like posts again in 1 minute. Maybe change that.

I don’t think iNat is able to do that. The Forum is hosted on Google, so I believe it would be up to them to make changes.

The Google Group was. That was locked a long time ago. The forum is hosted by Discourse.

OK, thanks for that information. Then I can be of no help!

That’s okay! I would like your comment but now I’m getting “Wow! You’ve been sharing a lot of love! You’ve reached the maximum daily likes for today, but as you gain trust levels, you’ll earn more daily likes. You’ll be able to like posts again in 8 hours.” Come on!

It means that you’ve liked up to the limit of posts in one day that you can. It’s that simple. Also, this isn’t anything staff can fix, this happens on all Discourse forums.

I know that much but thanks! Sorry for my lack of knowledge on Discourse. The only fourm I use is iNat forum. Is there a way to earn more? I’m at trust level 3(regular). Trust level 4(leader) is not really being used(the only person there is the system https://forum.inaturalist.org/badges/4/leader). Do I just wait or is there something I can do?

If it says you can like more in 8 hours, you wait 8 hours.

You might be able to remove likes from posts and use them on other posts, I haven’t tested that.

I think it’s possible for us to change the like limit, but it’s there for a reason – to prevent sock puppet accounts and bots from absuing the likes system.

That happened the first time I came onto the forums. I had to wait 22 hours because I had too many replies/posts. I could still reply to dms but I could only do it once so I had to wait the hours out

I’ve been on since January 29. I don’t think I’m “new” anymore. I’ll just wait 7 hours. It’s fine :)
