There's a thanks button? It must be on the PC site because there isn't one on the tablet application. I'll have to go fire up the computer and have a look.

The Thanks button is not available on the mobile version. It is intended to be interactive and not a reputation or "like" button. We've found that the thanks message is more important to a poster than the score keeping aspect of the like button and it's one of those little things that makes DC a little different than most sites. You can use the thanks button without sending the PM - just don't fill in the box... ;)

Since I most often use the mobile ap, I am missing thanking people. I feel bad about that, I don't want anyone to think I am a snob or not thankful for their comments. So all of you consider yourselves thanked! 💚

Are you sure about that?
I get "Thanks" PM's that have no text written by the person doing the thanking. I assumed they simply clicked on the Thanks button without typing anything into the field.

After I post this I'll click the Thanks button on your reply. See if you don't get a PM notification that you have been thanked. And if I remember correctly you won't even know what post was thanked without clicking the link within the PM.

It took me a minute, well, part of a minute.

Actually, you can find out. The title of the thread appears as the left-most entry on the line. If you click on the title you go directly to the post that generated the "thanks" from your fellow DCer. TaDa!

Thanks.
The way she worded that I thought that perhaps there was a way to say thanks without generating a PM. Or maybe a setting on the recipient's end to re-direct the Thanks somewhere other than a PM. I'd rather have the Thanks sent to my profile comments.

oops, you're right, CG.
I meant you did not know what post they were thanking.
Back in "the day", when we had karma instead, when you looked at your karma list you could see the sender and the specific post they Karma'd.

ahhh, days gone by...

But then you don't see any of them until you go looking. You don't see the ones with something typed in them either.
