Earlier today, I posted a picture and a small description relating to a character of mine in the video game Star Trek Online. I went off and had a shower, had lunch and then got some groceries. I got home thinking “hey, wouldn’t it be cool if someone liked my Star Trek related post”. I sometimes think things like that, especially when I make an original post, not just a reblog. And I’ll admit, I get giddy when someone does like or reblog something I posted. I get an even greater amount of satisfaction when it’s something that’s important to more people than just me (such as when I post up information about petitions, or Amber alerts or that kind of thing). So I got back home, and low and behold, there was someone who liked my Star Trek related post.
However, there was a slight issue I noticed when I took a closer look. First, this wonderful person, whomever they are (I don’t know, I didn’t check their blog yet, so I am erring on the positive), had liked my post. Yet, as one can clearly see, there is no little number which tells me how many notes there are.
Upon a closer look, I noticed something really odd.
According to the helpful tip hover when you hover your mouse over the link, it informs me there are 189 notes for my post.
I’ll circle it in red.
Yet, it’s painfully obvious that there are no notes listed on the post itself.
Again, I will highlight the area which has nothing in it.
So, what gives Tumblr? Missing E? Why this hopefulness only to stab me in the heart? You’re laughing at me, aren’t you?
