Who would win? ----------------------------------------------------- One high-quality | One HTML Java program | hello world from with 500 lines | a popular user of code | (2k followers)

There isn't a real answer to this, but I'll give my best try. I believe that some people might write it in an HTML/CSS/Javascript program to show off some effects they have discovered or created, and they don't know what else to write. Also, these upvotes are given by encouraging and experienced programmers who are happy to see other new programmers join Sololearn. Most of these posts are by inexperienced programmers or people who just joined Sololearn, and these upvotes can be encouraging to those people. Sometimes, encouragement is needed to promote learning and preventing people from becoming afraid to ask questions in the community or forums.

HonFu i like the way you categories it, and that's the criteria lots of user use before they click the like button

Yo Sławek J., You should consider learning how "Sololearn dynamics" works. Codes that are great won't give you lots of liked always. Sometime you need luck, like Sololearn making that code the COTD, or when a post featuring that code becomes the post of the day. But nevertheless a lot of codes that have likes are pretty awesome.

Good for beginners coding doesn't mean you should write lengthy code.If you write a simple code and it should understand easily to the users.First step always be a hi hello only.

@ Jan Stech We all know the answer!

I Don't know How they get that many likes but i think its a good thing because for beginners if they see the support and love they got with there first code the will get encouragement and motivation . And thats very important if they want to shape their future with coding.. For Me Honestly My "Hello World" c++ code I wrote on PC was the proudest moment for me and that gave me enough motivation to learn more things and choose coding career 😄😄

Thank you everybody for helping me get my 'Babble Badge'! 😂😂😂

*AsterisK* I left the challengers group about a month ago because I was getting too many notifications. But for popularity based badges I didn't use that group as I had already got these badges before I joined the group. The Likestorm 'group' that I got help from was before the time of personal messages and groups and was just a thread in which a group of 10 or 11 guys could just ask each other for a likestorm and you would get 10 votes within a day or two which would easily elevate your question into the Hot Topic category. I no longer have a need to use these.

Bcoz every one like to say hi to sololearn... It is the basic program.😊😊... it is the easiest program... we can display this with any language among all...

An excellent code doesn't get a lot of likes automatically. Sometimes a simple code has tons of likes because it has an emotional side. I.e. an adorable dog pet drew with css clumsily. Visibility is important too. A code posted in a trendy challenge post at the right time will increase its chances of being liked.

I think if as a developer I am using Solo Learn and posting my codes then definitely I would prefer NOT to use "Hello World" but instead will use "Hi Solo Learn" or "Hello Solo Learn" which sounds quite unique and community specific. I believe people usually write "Hi Solo Learn" just to make their contents community specify or might be they don't have any other content that sounds community specific.

*AsterisK* remember the Challenge group I was in and you probably still are in? And how people in the group ask others in the group to upvote them? It's a similar thing. Badges like this have got no relationship to one's coding ability.

HonFu you need a LikeStorm group for your last few babble badges. If not for a chance encounter with about 10 guys from a LikeStorm group I would be at least a couple of badges short.

😁😁😂😂😂😁 Sonic maybe I need to consult em for a badge too, and it seem they give HonFu a super like storm for him to like em 😂😂😁😁😁

Because everyone understand them :D
