I am chuckling a bit. I am one of the competitive ones with the old karma points. My husband and I had a running gag with each other competing for points. It was super fun and so many of the crew that were here at the time played along. We were never terribly serious about it, but it made us laugh every day.

Pac, nothing to do with Thanks, but I cannot STAND a touchpad. I have to have a mouse. I have a few to plug in and always carried them with me. And my previous work techies refused to use a touchpad as well.

I'm not overly fond of the touchpad, but I use it all the time. I don't get an inflamed wrist nearly as often with the touchpad as with the mouse.

I'd inflame my wrist by bashing my laptop. Paragraphs would disappear from me doing nothing but typing. I'd have to redo entire reports. My supervisor said the same thing would happen to her too. We'd both watch as I typed something and it would disappear.

I use it a lot with the touchpad.

Usually you can just have the touchpad turn off while typing.

New laptop, touchpad is horrible... though I think I almost have it tamed.

Glad to see this has turned into a discussion.
Let me be clear about my intentions as it seems there are a few that seem to already possess this information. RE: California comments.

1) My goal was not to change anything, but to possibly improve what we already have.
2) Yes, I am using other forum controls as the example as they seem to be much better than the system we use here.
3) A true one click thanks/like button would be simpler, faster and frankly for me, more comfortable.
I think thanks should be public and I think no reason is needed for the thanks or like.

I know I am new around here, but I do have ideas and thoughts just like everyone else does.
I am wondering how this might have played out, had a seasoned member suggested this. Something tells me it might have been more positively received? Just my gut impression.
Since we have not heard from any site management, I will assume this is the case and no further posting on this subject is required, needed or wanted.
In fact this has already been suggested in earlier comments.

Several 'seasoned members' have agreed with your suggestion. I don't think your tenure here has anything at all to do with how this suggestion was received.
