    Post Thank You Hack

    There are users who really like to express their thanks to post but don't like posting a post that looks like they're post boosting.

    The authors of the posts have no idea how many people really likes their posts if only some people say 'thanks'.

    What this hack does is fix ALL these problems - except those users who like post boosting. This places a button called 'thanks' next to the edit/quote/multi quote post buttons. When a user clicks on it, it places his username in a box right under the post saying that so-and-so says 'thanks' for the post. Every-one who clicks is placed in one box.
    See screen shots below for visuals!

    So, start using it, with moderation of course! If you like a thread/post, but don't want to just write up a simply 'thanks' post, then click this 'thanks' button instead to show the author your appreciation!*


    * It doesn't hurt to hit reply as well, we love feedback in the form of sentences as well We promise we won't bite!

    I think this is a brilliant idea, Julie! You always manage to surprise and delight me with all the new little features you keep adding to the forum to make it more fun for everyone

    This is going to come in really handy. There have been plenty of times when I've really liked a post, and would have liked the poster to have known that I enjoyed the comment, but didn't want to put up a silly one-liner saying 'Funny and/or insightful!'.

    Great addition, Julie!

    See, this is exactly the reason why I implemented this, for times like these!

    If some users have wondered why they haven't seen this option, it was because you needed to have at least 10 posts in order to see it.
    I've now changed it so that users with at least 1 post can use this.
