So today i got a badge that says, '5 Up Votes'. What is an upvote on here? I dont know where exactly i could have gotten them, and i dont know where to give them either. Could someone help pls?
Upvotes are what you get if others like an idea you post to the "Suggest an Idea" category of Community.
Unlike so many social media participants, the thought of getting lots of "likes" and "upvotes" completely underwhelms me - even though I admit I "give" them myself to show my agreement with the helpful comments or positive ideas of my fellow participants here in Community.
An Upvote is an alternative to a Like. It is used on Idea aka feature request posts. Others who want to see the idea implemented can Upvote it.
Upvotes are given by clicking the thumbs-up ("Like") icon below a post or comment. To see what you got them for, click your profile icon at the top right of any Community page, click on your profile name in the resulting box, then click the thumbs-up button in the Reactions section (right below About). Hover over a "Like" to see who gave it.
i thought they were likes, but they arent. I have a "5 likes" badge already for 5 people liking my comments. I still havnt figured out what an upvote is though
