Just a suggestion

I'm a big fan of the vBulletin "thanks" system. Just a simple "Thanked for this post" system that's included in the basic package I believe.

Any reason why this wasn't implemented?

Please don't do a thanks syste. Do karma or rep points but the thank system is terrible. At least where I've seen it used.

Are karma and rep points available for vBull?

It's in use on another reptile forum I'm on, and I don't see a problem with it. Why don't you like it?

I agree. I see it simply as a way to show basic gratitude for good advice or interesting/helpful posts.

Re: Just a suggestion

But, a rep or karma system is better, I do agree with that.

Re: Just a suggestion

I'm not familiar with a karma system. The rep system I'm familiar with is fun though. Sooooooooooo much inappropriate content. Loved it.

The other forum I'm on that uses it will have someone post" my iguana ate today" and some stupid twit will thank them for the post.

I like rep better than karma as I had a stupid twit get into a negative karma war with me because I called him out. He gave me negative karma for telling wayne I wish I had a sav but didn't have room right now.

I don't think the former would happen here. The forum I'm on that has it doesn't have any issues like that.

People can do that stuff with the rep system too though if they get some friends involved. In reality, any system can be used improperly. The "Thanks" system is actually probably less likely to be abused in such a way that it has an obvious negative effect on someone. Not that I'm particularly partial to any of them. Doesn't make much of a difference to me.

Re: Just a suggestion

Atleaat you don't see a message saying "stupidtwit says thanks for this post" because your snake pooped.

Re: Just a suggestion

Personally, I'd prefer to have none of them. The "thanks' system just adds unnecessary posts and makes the page longer (more crap you scroll down through). All of them can easily be used improperly, people "buddying up' to give out kudos to each other when it often isn't really warranted.
