No XP/Laughs?

What 'edition' of EN World are we on these days? Can we edition war about the messageboard features?

Actually, I guess I need to update my avatar, since it looks stretched and pixelated on desktop.

A lot of the previous XP doesn't seem to have migrated. I currently only have 336 "likes", all of which seem to date back to 2014. No record of anything since then. Before the switch, I had 2400 or so between XP and Laughs.
Disconcerting. Although I created my account in 2010, I didn't really start posting here until the WotC forums shut down which was 2014/15? So if that is the case, I have to climb up from nothing again.

Granted, XP wasn’t even a thing during most of EN World’s first decade, so I guess I can’t be too bothered by it.

Obviously, Morrus and the others deliberately took out the XP/Laugh features that existed from 2015 on, after PROMISING US that they would support the features of ALL EDITIONS of the messageboard.

Where is the inclusion?

This is a slap in the face to people, like me, that loved and used the XP / Laugh system, and is clearly just a sop to the olds who never grokked how awesome it was.

(Am I doing this right? Do I need more umbrage?)

I don’t see that on mobile.
When you say "on mobile" could you clarify what you mean? Just viewing the site on a mobile device (which shows the same as desktop) or using the Tapatalk app (which is a third party app I don't have any control over)?

Ahh. Viewing the site on a mobile device, specifically an iPhone X.

EDIT: Just checked it out on my laptop, now I see. You have to hover your mouse over Like, which I can't do on my phone for obvious reasons. Carry on!

Could you provide a quick screenshot? It's visible on my phone. (the actual device makes no difference; it's a web page not an app, but I have the same phone)

I can confirm. I’m on a mobile device and see only a thumbs-up “like” option. Which I will test right now.

On one hand, I should resist unnecessary gamification.

On the other hand, "MAH EXPERIENCE POINTS!"

If you have to ask if your messageboard edition warring needs more umbrage, then it definitely needs more umbrage.

Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain.
I was just coming up to level 17. Waah!

Weirdly, I have a bunch of ‘reactions’ listed in my profile, but they date back to 2014, nothing more recent.

I know what it is. It was about 5 years ago we installed the new like/laugh thing on the old boards, and stopped using the old rep system. This upgrade imported the data from old rep system and converted it to the new reactions system.
