Re: Just a suggestion

You guys must know of a different Thanks system than I do. The one I'm familiar with, there aren't any messages when you get thanked, and all it does is add a little thing (maybe half an inch) at the bottom of the post saying who thanked for it. Not really any kind of hassle or irritation.

That's exactly what I'm talking about. ANother forum I know has it, and everyone and their brother thanks everyone else for every other post. Those "half inch" foot notes start piling up quick.

Eh, no experience with that. I think the most thanks I've ever seen on one post was three. I guess if the forum is full of idiots, that might be an issue, but like I said, I don't think that would be a problem here.

Re: Just a suggestion

Honestly, i like the this site the way it is, without any systems that may lead to abuse of said systems. You'd be amazed how many people get butt hurt over the amount of karma this person has, or why he or she was given negative karma.

Re: Just a suggestion

In the long run I don't think it will make a difference either way.

If it's added, fine, we'll see how it goes.

If it isn't, no big deal, the site stays the same.

I agree. No need to complicate things.

Well Wayne said it's gonna be added in the next upgrade, so we'll just have to see how it goes.

Re: Just a suggestion

What I do like about the "thanks" system is that it confirms that someone read your post, even if they don't reply to it.

It's built into the newer version of Vbulletin, so when we upgrade to VB4.x it will be there.

It's my favourite part. You can also remove your thanks from the forum I'm on.


I don't like rep/karma. Probably because I'd have none by end of first day.

I think it'll work nicely. If nothing else, it certainly won't be the end of the world.
