O People! WHERE ART THOU?

Can't you ban this post anymore? https://www.sololearn.com/discuss/342605/?ref=app Many of SoloLearn Members told me that likes are of no use and I shall leave this community if I am here for likes... Where are those people now? People are getting badges there they my never deserve... why?

meh. you are correct in the matter of "likes are of no use". Do they help you understand a concept? Nope. Badges and xp do not reflect your skill. They just make you feel fuzzy and warm on the inside. At the end of the day they are only cheating themselves out of that feeling. Much like the people who want you to do their homework for them are cheating themselves of knowledge.

⚠️This is a revised version of a post I made. I feel like it fits here! ⚠️ 〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️ 🌩️Likestorming is a situation where I'll check your stuff out and maybe you'll check mine out. 🚫But it is not said or implied that anyone has to do anything in return. For example: 👍Say I like a bunch of posts from someone, I read their posts, usually from the beginning, and I like what I like and don't like what I don't like. 👁️And in return if said person wants to look at my posts, great! Much appreciated! 🙃But I'm not asking them to nor do I expect them to. 🚫And a lot of times they don't which is perfectly fine with me🆗. 🔎Maybe some people don't look at the posts they hit the like button on. But I find it hard not to. 📖I wouldn't be able to just hit the like button for hours without reading the posts. That would get boring really fast. (🏃💨Especially since I lack the attention span) 🎓We all can learn something from each other. 🚼➡️🚹Looking at the progression people have made here from when they first started till now is a pretty awesome thing to see. 👍I'd recommend you or anyone for that matter try it sometime! 😀

likes are pretty much the only reason I'm here, although only for my codes. I strive for people to like what I make. if I make something and no one likes it, it feels like I wasted my time. it's a personal issue I've had for a long time, but at least Sololearn helps me remedy it

again. meh. I dont pay much attention to levels. but that is me. My best advice on this matter is: you do you. If you are not participating most of your likes will be genuine and you should be proud. Worrying about other peoples actions can only lead to heart/head aches. You could always send a suggestion to sololearn. Not sure they can do much either.

@jay I know that likes are of no use, but when you recieve one, how do you feel? I feel slightly motivated, as if someone is telling me to keep it up... Perhaps it is indeed useless to have likes, but SoloLearn has given this feature... and you must have seen that people only talk and discuss on codes with more likes... And yes, those people are cheating with themselves, earning a reputation they may never deserve...

@Kryptic What you say is right, but thats more like a theory... Recently I got a few likestorms, and the people liked literally everything, even answers which were given downvotes... I can guarantee that some of them never bothered reading any answers or running my codes to see if they are any good or not... That is what I'm against here now... I reached this level I am now on by my own, by posting quality answers, questions and codes that will surely be helpful for the community in a programming sense... But the scenario is that few people want such things to show up... If they give me likes but never saw my codes run, those likes have no meaning for me as they cannot be a source of motivation... Thus, I simply request everyone to earn only what they deserve... See this code for an example: I can prove to you that out of the 13 likes I have, 5 people literally ran it... https://code.sololearn.com/cLGN9A6ZdaHB/?ref=app So, how can I accept the other likes?

Here we are gain new views on various topics regarding our knowledge about computer programming languages and share our view. It should not be affected by likes or dislikes. As said in Shreemad Bhagwat Geeta, do your deed and set yourself free from the results, I suggest you should play on your own term. You know better yourself how much you are good or bad, than anyone else? Most importantly we here are as learners and learner tend to make mistakes and that is not a big deal. If someone like your posts, be thankful and otherwise simply move ahead. Life should keep on moving. Lastly at the end of the day what you learned is far more important than badges you earned. IDK, it okay here, but still remember ये जीवन है, इस जीवन का यही है, यही है, यही है रंगरूप थोड़े ग़म हैं, थोड़ी खुशियाँ यही है, यही है, यही है छाँव धूप...

Latest You started following Nobody... 😂😂😂

The people this post was referring to never came here... it is pointless to continue it any longer...

I believed that likes may provide a support, an encouragement to keep up the good work... Guess it is only for others, not for a person like me.

@jay I am unable to find any uninitialized variable on line 421..

I got errors to fix! The first two being the uninitialized local variables. Using Visual Studio 2017. Warning levels too high maybe? Edit: Got working.. had to specify here. Line 421 int ch, subch, no = 0, betmax = 1, round = 0, prev = 0; bool loop = true; lol, the balance.

@jay There was no problem when I ran it in the morning... Ill see...
