Discourse Telling Me I Must Wait 418,000+ Hours Before I Can Like Another Post

Discourse will not allow me to like any further posts. This started happening about 12 hours ago and checking it just now, it continues.

I’ve never seen this error before; logging out and in does not reset the counter either.

I was just about to make this, too… :sweat:

The error message looks like this:

You’ve reached the maximum number of likes today. Please wait 418513.233020213 hours before trying again.

Also, have a fake like for the topic: :heart:

EDIT: Yay! Down to 418287.70256826474 hours for me!

There’s already a bug report in the discourse meta (so it’s nothing we did):

I guess we all should have been more frugal with our Like usage. Who knew there was a finite supply?

We have a daily limit on how many times that action can be taken. Please wait 10.124772303055765 hours before trying again.

Mine is down to 10 hours. I think that’s a improvement.

Edit : It’s back to 41567 hours :disappointed_relieved:

I didn’t even know there was a daily limit for likes.

Anyway. Has anyone affected tried clearing cookies or advancing their system clock?

I’ll give you a like then? You’re right that’s an odd thing to put a cap on though.

Oh no! You’re contributing to the shortage! At this rate there will be a Like surcharge implemented to reflect its scarcity, and not long after that you’ll have Likes showing up on the black market, most of them counterfeit or defective.

It does it for me too. "You’ve reached the maximum number of likes today. Please wait 418513.36364949174 hours before trying again."
Ugh, that’s almost 48 years, by that time @Havenstone will actually have finished with XoR. :unamused:

A year? Try 48.

There! Likes for you! Likes for everyone! (I’m so going to pay for this when I have to wait a year due to the shortage, or delve into the black market aren’t I?)

opens jacket psst wanna buy a genuine like…only 3.99 for a limited time. :money_mouth_face: :rofl:

Well, when a stranger comes up and opens their jacket in front of you, better that they be showing you Likes of dubious quality as opposed to the alternative.

@Jacic, don’t you realize the entire human race is constantly just three weeks from Like starvation? Just twenty one short days between us and a landscape of unloved posts. It’s a sobering thought.
