Hi,

 

I know the whole beeing able to rate a member has been discusted but what about a simple thanks button??

 

Another forum i use has this system and it works really well

 

Its just a quick way to show appreciation and to show that you are helpfull to other members

 

Thanks

I do like the idea, it is a nice touch but.. I can't see it being huge benefit to anyone though, most people just reply saying thank you etc if they found the post useful.

 

It's getting harder and harder to get reliable modifications for our forum software as it's quite old now and people don't want to support it anymore. Obviously the last thing I want to do is to install something, it not work properly and then have to take the forum offline to either fix it myself or remove it and go back to where we were.

 

Also if there is a counter for how many thanks/rep is received then it can get spammed too easily. It also doesn't necessarily encourage people to write informative posts, just as many posts as they can in the hope to get up their rep. People already 'spam' the forum with quite meaningless posts just to get their post count up.
