I'm not a good member when I forget to do that. I'll try to be better.

With love,

Please thank me later....as my mail box is full right now. So if you thanked me now I'll never find out... Or just wait til we switch over to the simpler "thanks" system...so others can see you've thanked me big time....

if it had nothing to do with what they looked like on the surface then why did you ask the poster if they even looked at the attachment you posted. The only information that could be gleamed from that is visual.

Because sometimes people want their thanks to be private. Why should they be forced to have it public? It is 6 of one half a dozen of the other.

You also never answered why you can't click thanks and be done with it under the current system. No one is forcing you to write a message. It even says "optional" right on it so there is no ambiguity.

There is a text box in which you can type your thanks when you click on it. I just sent you thanks, Roll Bones.

There is a grammatical error here in DC, I think. When you send your thanks, the pop-up says "Your thanks HAS been sent."

It should say, "Your thanks HAVE been sent." Thanks are plural, yes?

Or am I wrong? English is so hard.

With love,
~Cat

Thanks in this case is singular CatPat. You are not sending someone thank.

I think 'thanks' is singular. 'Thank yous' are plural.

You "thank" someone by sending them "thanks". Yes, it is confusing.

We drive on parkways and park on driveways. Confusing for sure!

Thank you!

I wondered of this. I trip and fall over English so much one would think I need to begin paying a gravity bill.

With love,
~Cat

You will need to explain how I find this "thanks" CatPat. I don't see any thanks.

Are you on a mobile version of the site or are you on a computer?
