XF 1.1 Turn off counting of likes in particular forum toward user total


Active member
Is there a way to turn off the counting of likes in a particular forum toward user total? It would basically be the equivalent of "Count messages posted in this forum toward user total" except for likes. I tried searching for an add-on with this functionality.
Does such an add-on exist? I searched and couldn't find one. If I were to try and code my own add-on where is a good resource on how to do that?
