My little smiley faces ran away

Not sure if anyone else has had this happen, but several of my MOCs have lost 2 likes. Not particularly broken up about it, just wondering what would cause this, or if anyone has experienced this happening.

That happened on only one of my MOCs.

On another note, one of my MOCs received two likes, when no new people liked it.

I do actually, thanks. If I was able to see where that had happened, I wouldn't have posted this concern, but it looks like none of the ratings on my affected MOCs have been changed. This group is to inform the mods of problems, that's what I'm doing. Almost exactly two years ago, MOCpages went through a spell where it didn't matter how many people threw a like on your MOC, your smiley faces wouldn't go up at all. I'm just making sure something similar isn't happening now.

I'm not entirely sure, but I may have had that happen as well. One of my MOCs went up and hasn't gone up in a while. I just didn't pay enough attention to the "see who" link to know if anyone added themselves on.

Haha, yeah, now that you mentioned it, almost all the MOCs I can see on my pages just took a hit of -2 smilies. It almost passed my notice, had it not been for one MOC that then lead me to realize all the others got hit too. I don't really care as long as I don't get hit with like -20 or something. ;)

Same with me, Ian. I only noticed that the Armageddon Walker had changed. I actually went in to see if someone left a new comment before I realized that the number had actually gone down. That't when I noticed the rest of the them. Most of them didn't change, though. Weird.

Same happened to me, lost 2 likes on my 3 most popular and gained 2 on one of my latest posts. Not sure why it did that.

Guys, I think the Moderators have enough information. This is clearly a site-wide problem, but everyone saying they lost and gained likes is like saying the world goes round. Sure nobody believes when they first hear it, but eventually, it is convincing and you see that everyone already knew. There is clearly enough information for the moderators to work with in order to see what the problem is and begin working to fix it.

And it takes 20 people? It usually only takes 3 or 4 to realise it is a big issue. If one person has a problem, it is usually pretty clear because they usually deal with not being able to change a homepage or edit a MOC, and it can be settled easily because someone already has a solution, not disappearing likes, being unable to lock topics if you are a moderator, or not getting e-mails when you should.

The same thing happened to me. One of my creations, the LL-907, http://mocpages.com/moc.php/373062 used to have 9 "Smiley Face" icons, but the number has reduced to 7. For proof, you can see in the comments that 9 people commented with "I like it" next to their names, which means that I should have gotten 9 smiley face icons. Surprisingly, my Blacktron ATV http://mocpages.com/moc.php/380029 used to have 5 smiley faces, but it has somehow gone up 2 to make 7. I lost 2 likes on a creation but gained 2 on another one. I'm not trying to gain more likes from people or advertising my creations using the links, which are only so you can have proof for my claims, but I think this losing and gaining 2 likes randomly thing is a glitch.

Yeah, I've noticed this too. Every time somebody likes one of my creations, it goes down by a like instead of up! And as an experiment, I just commented on a moc with 50 likes, giving it a 5star rating and it's gone down to 49 likes!

Oh my. I thought they just disappeared, not becoming an inverse! So... Is it possible for the counters to go negative? Is that in the coding of the website?!

I liked the 2nd most popular MOC a second ago, and it went up by 11... So much for my hopes of bringing it down with that -1 like thing. ;)

This seems a pretty random fault.

I logged into MOCpages anonymously to test this and 'liked' my own creation, so I wouldn't cost anyone else a 'like' if this is a genuine error, and four 'likes' were lost in one go.

I then went into the 'Get Your Creations Noticed' group, as you can always guarantee some poor quality MOCs there (otherwise why would they need it?) and clicked on one of the '1 like for 3 likes' threads.

The link in the thread led to an inevitably poor quality MOC that the owner would like to cheat with. It was worth a 1 star rating. I rated it 1 star, and it was awarded another 'like'. Great news for the cheating owner, however, and this I find hilarious, all his requested likes will in fact be 1 star ratings. Mwuhuha!

So, because it will foil the plans of the GYCN group and I'm not bothered about 'Likes' on my own models, I suggest we keep this error : )

The only issue is what will the current situation do to the MOTD algorithm? I think the loss of a meaningful MOTD is a small price to pay though ; )
