I'll probably get suspended or kicked off for saying this :

IF your biggest problem in life is liking or not liking the "thanks" button, or the lack of a "like" button, or not wanting to be bothered with the effort to quote just the select part of a comment you are responding to...well then, consider yourself one very lucky person. There are SO many other things to be concerned with that actually warrant this much attention.

It really does take a lot of time to make a small change to any program. Those in charge may find that since we seem to be pretty evenly divided about wanting/not wanting this change, it isn't worth the time and aggravation to rewrite a computer program to make this change. If your overall experience at DC is enjoyable you'll overlook differences. For me, keeping the current way or making a change doesn't make a difference as to whether or DC is my "Happy Place".

In the end, I hope we all accept the way things are around here whether or not they're exactly the way we want them to be or are changed to a different way we may not prefer. In the end it's all about the friendships we've developed and the knowledge we've gained along the way at DC.

Just my 2 cents worth. Hope I haven't offended anyone.

No, because the only people posting their thanks would be the people who want their thanks to be seen by everyone. The rest would be using the Thanks button they way it is.

Really, why is it important to thank someone? It's just a discussion, and unless people are beginning to take sides, there's no reason to have to thank someone for agreeing with you.

it's the same thing - there are people who cannot reply without including the original post. I guess they do not know how.

it is very helpful for old people who cannot remember what they said yesterday. or for the folks who log on once a year.

the usefulness of a Thanks button/function/score escapes me, completely.
other than building up one's own little clique of Likers, what's the point?

Some people like to express appreciation for help or advice they have received. Sometimes one might want it to be private, other times public. It's not about agreement or cliques.

[QUOTE Hope I haven't offended anyone. [/QUOTE]

CG, I'm not offended and I doubt that anyone else is.

When I see a thread like this I think of the quote by Pablo Picasso " Give me a museum and I'll fill it!"

I think most DCers feel the same way about a lively thread.

Nope that was never what anyone was asking for.

My parents always taught me to thank people. Thanking someone is polite. It has nothing to do with taking sides (and hence it is private under the current system). When someone makes a point I had not considered or something that enlightens me I feel the want to thank them.

I would hit the 'thank' button at someone who posted something very informative or made me smile or laugh.
