Thanks for the THANKS button Allen

by Peter Bestel 27 replies
So we have a 'thanks' button now - just next to the 'quick reply'

Mmm! Nice to be able to say a simple 'thank you for your post' without bumping up your post count needlessly.

Cheers Allen

    Agreed Peter.
    But I wonder if it will get used.

    LOL @ Frank.

    I love the "ummm, it was kind of OK" button idea. Allen? We're going to need that button asap.

    I just ran a simple little test on the "thanks" button. I wanted to see if it could be abused - meaning that if you used it would your post count increase. Thanks goodness it DOESN'T, otherwise we would have people thanking JUST to get their post count up!

    Hmm...

    So now are we going to see people posting threads just so they can get their "Thanks Count" up?

    Or, what about WSOs? Will people have to say "Thanks" to get their download?

    I hope this works out well, and doesn't become a spam tool.

      Mike,

      The test I ran showed that using the Thanks button does NOT increase post count!

        Hey Pete,

        Thanks for pointing this out....

        Perhaps this can used as a way to measure how helpful certain
        warriors are???/

        Regards

        Greg

    I added this to the forum to hopefully create a little balance. We have two ways to report and basically bitch at someone and no way to say a simple thanks.

    Couple more points..

    People who don't like to post find it much easier to just click the thanks button.

    People who don't have anything to say but thanks can just use the button instead of making a post with 'Thanks!' in it and making the thread not very readable.

    I think it will work out.

      and the best thing of all is that it can be used instead of the long gone REP button and it can't really be abused.

        Haha I don't disagree! I wonder what other similar applications will pop up.

        Perhaps a "Flame" button?

        Maybe a "Silly Thread" button :p

        Maybe an "Amagawg!" button

        What kind of other buttons can you foresee??
