Ooh!
I like this theme/genre - 3 unrelated stories are spinning around inside my head. Maybe I'll let them settle and see which will fly first :)

** Please do not use the "Like" button in this thread! **

I've noticed in some other threads that there is no "like" link. e.g. https://www.sffchronicles.com/threads/45554/page-152#post-2271516

Therefore it seems possible to turn off this feature, but is it a forum feature or a thread feature?

Just thought I'd ask in case the "like" link could be turned off in the entries thread

But but but.... I had my entry. It had raspberry chocolate, kinky boots and a blaster.

S’not fair :(;):D
Sounds like a spy to me.

Err... that thread has "likes" in it too. Is it possible you're looking at your own posts? There isn't a "like" button visible in anyone's own posts.

The software allows us to remove the feature from whole forums, but not at a thread level -- so if we removed it from the Challenges, it would also be removed from the Discussion and other threads in that forum. Alas.

Oh! :oops: I hadn't realized mods have a "like" button in places where they are disabled -- I don't think that was the case before the last upgrade. Was it? :unsure:

Sorry for the confusion. Yes, that's the Playroom, at any rate, and it's all disabled there.

I'm in and just in case, there used to be someone at work with a surname of Stiff and his parents decided to name him Richard William. Go figure.

First, Interesting choice of theme and genre. I may have to go for the Man from UNCLE and a Monkey's Uncle. ---- Illya, Napoleon, Gabby, and others would be honored, I'm sure. :unsure:

------------

@Starbeast .... 007: Live and Let Drive .... Beast has written a story with the kind of Blonde vs. Bad Guy contest that's sure to be in the next big 007 extravaganza.

@Jo Zebedee .... COME UP AND SEE ME .... Jo, I can't help but see your main character as Mae West. It will probably be a bumpy night.

@Luiglin .... On His Majesty’s Secret Service .... Luiglin reminds us that when your name is Styf you have 2 strikes against you in the spy business.
