For the record, I would be all for a "like" system like other sites have. I like that a lot more than the way we have it here (not that I really care much one way or the other actually). But to your post yes you can send the poster a PM, but that is not the same as a "thanks" the way we have it set up. A PM is generally seen as a conversation, while a thanks can be more of a one sided thing. Say your thanks and that is the end of it as opposed to (some people) feeling an obligation to respond.

I found this. An example of another forum with the "Thanks" button in use.

So sorry about the screen shot quality. If you click on it, you can see it much better.

Maybe this is a better screen shot? Nope. No better. Sorry folks.
Keep in mind I was not logged into this forum. so the actual "Thanks" button is not shown. Just the members that have used the "Thanks" button.

I like the 'thanks' format used in another forum thread linked below. Very simple, and to the point. Hope it show up without having to log in for the rest of you.

Looks good. Very similar to what I was trying to post.

It shows the thank yous, but doesn't show how someone did the thanking.

Oh, ok, there's a "Thanks" button on the right bottom corner of every post. I guess you need to be logged in to see that.

I think what taxlady was saying (and TL please correct me if I am wrong) is that it does not allow you to give a reason for the thanks.

Roadfix had it right. If you want to give a reason, you can quote the post or send a PM.
