|What is this and why can't I like a photo. It says I need a index of 1 or more. If someone could let me know that would be a big help…. Eric4|

the page that tells you that you need an index of 1 or more also tells you why:
The FAQ on this site explain what the index is and how it's calculated:
How is the AstroBin index calculated?
And if you want to know even more, remember that AstroBin is open source, so you can look at the code:
Hope this answers your question! :-)

|Not even close to answering the question. It says the number of likes increases your index scodre, but you can't like anything until your index is higher.|

|It’s the number of likes you receive on your own images that increases your score.|

|I couldn't figure out how to make a New Topic so posting here. Is it possible to delete images?|

==== The AstroBin index is a function of the number of Likes and the number of images posted by a user. ====|
This is a very vague answer :-)))

|The actual source code is posted a few posts above. It doesn't get any less vague than that :-D|

I was aware of this and I did note that there was No need to export STATIC_URL variable anymore |
I have a number of years of programming behind me and I find that this is quite useful info.
But, when I was younger, one (perhaps uselessly) tried to present a succinct description in words. And also, to point at the exact entry in a repository.
It never got more complicated than that :-D

The only "actual source code" I see is a link. This link sends me to::|
If I follow the new link, I get to :
Which, I assume, is where the source code resides. So are you actually suggesting that I look for a needle in this hay stack ? :-) I have stopped playing "Where is Charlie?" a while ago Is this really it ? Am I making a mistake somewhere (I often do… ?
It does not matter. Frankly, the bottom line is that I dont care to see the algorithm. Just curious because I see a lot of curious numbers of likes and whatever. I'm more interested not to see my ranking every time I open my page. I dont practice this hobby for a gold medal and I dont really need to be reminded that my index is only 25 or whatever each time.
Cheers / Clear skies and good continuation. P.
