Noob Question: What's the Posts vs Thanks Ratio?

9 replies
I've seen this alluded to every now and then, but I've never seen the answer.

What's the ratio for making posts vs being able to thank posters? I'd forgotten you could run out, but I ran across a string of topics today where apparently I hit the thanks button too many times. Now I can't thank anyone!!

So...who knows the ratio? I have 291 posts and 288 thanks, so is it around a 1:1 ratio?

    I didn't know there was a limit. Last week I saw someone with 5 posts and 249,999,999 thanks, must have been a glitch in the system lol.

    tpw said it is 25 within a 24 hour period. I keep forgetting to count but I trust that he's right. We run out of thanks a lot lol.

    I'd hit my thanks button Joe but it hasn't come back yet! LOL

    Your theory seems as good as mine...a solid number instead of a ratio. I've made another post or two since I posted this and there's no thanks button, so I'm betting you're right.

    Yeah it's definitely not based on a ratio- 25 for every 24 hours sounds about right.

      If the ratio theory worked I could make it rain with thanks right now lol.

    I didn't know there is a limit either.

    I know there are people with HUGE long threads with pages and pages. The OP will sometimes thank every poster - especially if it is a service the OP is offering.

    Whether it's a ratio or a limit based on time, I would imagine there may be an increased amount available based on quantity of overall posts as well as possible membership status..., but in the end...I also don't know
