Thanks Button?
 
I am a member at two other forums. Both have a "thanks" button for each post.
Its an easy way to let the person posting know you are in agreement, or to thank the poster without having to make a new post.

The forum controls look to be the same as these other forums and it seems a "thanks" button might be a nice addition to this forum.

Just a suggestion.

Um, there is a Thanks button. It's to the left of the Quote button. It sends a private thank you to the member who posted.

What I want is a "Like" button, like FB. That way other people can see that I liked the post, without me having to quote the message.

I've never liked the Thanks button. I thought it replaced a well working system and like you said, now we get a PM. Half the time I get Thanked I'm opening a PM that doesn't even say anything (no message from the "thanker").
I'm on a VB forum that has a Like button (hidden, you have to mouse over it) that lets anyone know you liked the post and lets the poster know, too. Without taking up PM space. And like our old system, your Likes are kept tally of. Also how many times you Liked.
Not a big fan of our Thanks button.

Yes. I have used the existing thanks button before. But its more a PM than a thanks button. I think it should be removed personally.

A "like" button is basically the same thing as a "thanks" button. This is what I mean by a thanks button.

I should have used "Like" instead of "Thanks" in my title. Since we already have a "Thanks" button that is actually a PM button....:lol:

Maybe a moderator could make this change for me?

The thanks button is not just a PM button. Click on User CP to see a list of your thanks.

Moderators cannot make those kinds of changes. That needs to go to the "Help Desk" so IT sees the request.

I *think* RB meant a change to the post title.

PrincessFiona60 03-23-2014 03:45 PM

In that case, report your own post so the Mods can see the request.

pacanis 03-23-2014 04:26 PM

A change now will affect a post or two addressing the title.
Just sayin'.
