    No someone likes your post and feels you deserve thanks for it will thank you. Someone can even thank you just cause he likes you ...

    I want to say the last time what I think about it, in short.

    I see no point of having a "thanks" system, or "reputation" system or anything like that on a message board for that matter that is to make discussions.

    The whole "thanks" thing is done for a message boards that have for example people upploading videos, and so people who do something for community get some recognition for it. It also helps in a way, that there ain't 50 posts with "Thanks" written in, but just 50 "thanks hit points" gathered from 50 people.

    Also tell me this: If you're new to the boards, and you see "Thank you" button to push it, why would you push it? If you see a good post, do you see a direct connection between "thanks" and that? Thanks is kinda reminding of some favour that someone did for you, not for something that they wrote that you agree with. If I see thanks and I wouldn't know of this topic, I would push it for people like Michael, who do something extra, meaning giving us GdS articles, or for other guys who for example upload some multimedia and all. In fact this is how I treated it at first.

    So unless someone comes here, to find that this "thanks" thing is also when you agree with someone, I think 9 out of 10 people will not use it.

    I think it's confusing, it's inacurate, and it's for me, not to mention people who are new, or those who don't even check this part of the forum. I don't want to bash the time that Ehsan probably spent on it, it's not my purpose. But I believe he'd rather hear truthfull comments, than just everybody going "Superb, I love it!" but deep down not being exactly the case.

    I'm not sure if Ehsan can do it but if only the poster got to see people who thanked his post or if it can be included somewhere in the profile.

    This will give me an idea why this post was liked and perhaps post more of it. Whether it's pictures or a tactical opinion.
    Couldn't agree more & I like this addition to the forum

    Surely it's simple guys, if you like it then pay attention to it and use it but if you don't then ignore it. It's just a little line in your Avatar box thingy (Name?)

    Could someone do a study about the relationship between number of times thanked and view on the system?

    In a way, yes. By the end of the year, regular members will have been thanked between 5-20 times and Inter Forever or whatever his new ID is will be thanked about 600 times.

    I've been 'thanked' once. Though I have no idea for which post I was thanked and I really don't think I've posted anything worth being thanked over recently anyhow.

    I am curious if there are any plans to swap the separator thing, like someone suggested before? You know, to get rid of the whole separator, and just leave a note (like a number next to the "thank" button) of how many times someone thanked for that post.

    So for instance, if I and Stefan will thank Michael for his post, he will have:

    [Thumbsup] Thank (2)

    And if you weren't thanked you will have it as default:

    [Thumbsup] Thank

    Isn't it better to have it that way? That way the "thank" plugin would be less lets say disruptive, it would still keep it's features as it will show how many times you were thanked for a particular post, and most important we would have as it was before: post under post, like it should be.

    B), I'd like to ask what's the point of seeing who thanked for the post anyway? I'm really curious about that. It might be fun to see who thanked you if you're a narcisist, but if you're a normal guy you don't give a fuck whether Ziggy Z thanked you, or Lil Boy. I'm sure the guy like Michael doesn't pay attention to it. He's just happy his contribution to the forum is being noted, and he is right to be happy about it, cause he is doing a great job for a long time now.

    But seriously, do we really need to see who thanked for particular post?

    Yes because now you can see that I did not thank you for that post...

    Ma Milanista Che cazzo canti, Nella tua testa I ricordi sono tanti,
    Ci ricordate, del sei a zero, Ma gia' scordate Serie B e Totonero,
    Percio' ricorda, nella tua testa, quando eri in B tutta la nord faceva festa,
    Tifoso pirla, ma chi minacci? Altro che curva, siete un gruppo di palliaci.

    E Milan merda, Milan, Milan merda, E Milan merda, Milan, Milan merda.

    Take it easy Vito. Just because I didn't use smiley, doesn't mean I took it as a shot or something I was just asking calmly man.

    Sometimes people make jokes, but still try to make some point, that's why I asked, cause I thought you have one. If it was just a joke, cool.

    ...

    So my question is still valid.
