Yes Michael Elliott and something I have never done. The desire to be at the top of the answers here is important to only a few. 🏆

I don't know.  I imagine you'll get the like recorded but perhaps no points.  One only gets up to 50 points a day for the likes.

I don't "like" my own posts on social media and I don't "like" my answers in the Q&A here. I've never quite understood what "liking" your own stuff really does. Actually seems rather narcissistic to me.

Yes, but in a different way.
I know folks who like their own FB post to tweak the algorithm, if that is true IDK.
In here, it's to put your answer at the top of the feed bc people will automatically upvote the top of the feed whether it is a worthy contribution or not.

I don't upvote anyone who does that as I feel they have done my job for me. I express silent appreciation. LOL

I always agree with myself so it appears par for the course. If anyone agrees with me, it gets even better. If no one agrees, I am not running foroffice but instead doing what Walt Whitman described: sound my barbaric yawp over the roofs of the world...

I'd say so Michael Elliott . I know one reason to like your own post and question was to boost your points BUT ARS just announced the end of that practive (receiving points for liking your own) as well as responding to comments on your post by making it another comment as apposed to replying.

I only upvote my comments in the Q&A.  I never used to do that.  However, I read a post of comment about people who do and thought it was so funny I started to do it.  Let's have some fun. No one.

I see no shame in it. Yes, I do and there is no reason why anyone shouldn't. We are here to get business and to having the most likes, comments, connections, reactions, posts is the name of the game for maximum exposure and increasing our chances to be noticed, wouldn't you agree?

Yeah.  Kinda.  At least on Reddit you automatically have one upvote from yourself.

I typically don't do it, but if I'm late to the party (or if I'm tied with someone else), I'll upvote myself.
