I resist the "likes" crap because it is just trying to emulate the stupid @#$%$#@ social media garbage...
Yes, on one hand, but it is useful to know who has been viewing your post and what they think of it; even a dislike is useful. For jokes I always click 'funny' if they make me smile

The only problem with most of these 'management systems' is that they are too general like the famouse lines of code benchmark with software. Programmer 1 writes beautiful structured code which is robust, short, and simple to maintain. Programmer 2 writes spaggeti code. Programmer 1 thus writes 500 lines of code in a week, but programmer 2 has written 1,500 lines of code. Who gets the merit-rise?

"G or LabVIEW is graphical. Lines of code is utter nonsense. http://www.adlinktech.com/news/news_detail.php?file=Products/n_108.htm Yep, that's programming language with a steep learning curve.
Thanks for that- something else to read. It is very difficult to measure real progress on most engineering tasks, but especially software. My feeling is that the best you can do is to employ good people, give them the rignt tools, and have a good system/documentation structure.
