    Default You can now 'Thank' users for their post

    If you have found a post useful, you now have the option to 'Thank' a user for that post. Check out the 'thanks' button below the post.

    (Suggested by Cologne Junkie - if I could find the post, I would go and thank her!)

    According to the info - you are supposed to be able to find out who thanked you and for what, but I havent worked out how to do that as yet...

    Just spent the last hour trying to install a version of the Thank you thing which allows you to see who thanked you, but it ended up breaking everything. I'll keep my eye out but in the mean time, it will have to be a mystery!

    I like and appreciate the feature, but I think it clutters up the look of the forum having to see all the users that thanked each post. Don't shoot me, just my opinion.

    um, I'm going to go against the grain here and say I find this whole thing/format distracting. I like the added "thanks" button (although suggest it be moved next to the reply button), but it's the LIST after every post that makes my scrolling through a thread more difficult...
    I think having the "thanked X times in Y posts" listed is good but not having the list under the specific post would be better.

    Most of the time I am very proud of the Basenotes community. Time after time I have witnessed the thoughtfulness, empathy & genuine friendship that members of this community extend to others - oldtimers & newcomers alike. There are other times, however, when egos get the upper hand and civility goes out the window. My philosophy is that I won't say anything here that I would not say if you were standing in front of me. Welcome to Basenotes, each and every one of us. ~ TwoRoads

    If I get time, I'll see if I can fiddle with it so that you can see that a post has been thanked, but you can reveal it with a click if you're itching to know

    hey Grant,
    I'm not sure if everyone's on the same page about what the "thanks" button is FOR... Is it to say, hey thanks that was a useful post? is it to say, hey that's a neat idea or oh you're so funny, etc...

    I see people thanking posts that are just a joke or whatever. i was under the impression this is to recognize a post that sums up a topic nicely, or makes an interesting point to move the conversation forward, etc...

    Is there some sort of repp points add-on we could use instead? related to post count, trade/buy/sell feedback score, time on boards, etc and of course if people can just click a +1 or -1 to any given post to give the person points.

    Why is the thank feature missing? I used it this morning, but it's gone now.

    Update: Just read that you only have 3 thanks you can send a day. I'm sorry but that's not nearly enough, why limit it to 3?

    Personally, I think the thanks feature isn't such a great idea.

    Many will either forget or not bother using it. Some will also spend their daily ration too soon. However, the main concern is that it'll inadvertently generate a clique or Facebook-like culture, where favouritism will prevail. Although some Basenoters will use this function responsibly, I sense it'll mostly be used for posts that express what others want to hear and not opinions that are constructive or substantial. Not useful at all, IMHO - it feels like being back in the sixth form or high school.

    How I love putting my head on the block...

    I basically agree with Trebor, and he also made his case excelently.

    But then, it doesn't bother me, this feature, especially when I find myself surfing more and more less on these forums every single day. I happen to know some people are probably glad that I may well vanish completely at anytime. And others just don't give a damn.

    If I like what someone has to say I usually always let them know, but the thanks button has never been my preferred way of doing it.

    It also means more for someone to say 'thanks' in their own unique and special way than for the same person to just click a button...

    I might be missing something obvious, but I don't see a "Thank" button anywhere. Not that it matters too much, since I generally post thanks on my own.

    "thank" button is a bad idea for forums, at least basenotes doesn't need it.

    Just for the sake of these posts - the 'thanks' function is a plug-in which has been disabled because of the potential security risk.

    I'm locking this thread because for some reason the spammers have targeted it as a favorite place to post spam.

    The "thank you" button is not available any longer.
