There was another one went something like, "Does a ten pound bag of flour make a really big biscuit?" I thought about using it for a DC sig... cuz I can't bake, didn't really know the answer, and would feel prouder than the flour-covered kid in the commercial if I made one that big.

I've noticed that too. Lots of commercials catch your attention, but don't tell you what they are advertising until the end, and usually have absolutely nothing to do with the video. It's counter productive as I've already hit the mute button, well before the end of the commercial.

All the "Peggy" jokes aside. I was quite happy with the recently deleted karma or reputation function and, as a member, see no need for it to be replaced. I've seen the "like" functionality on another forum and don't see it as being better.

It would have been nice if the members were polled for their opinion before the change was made.

I never paid any attention to the points, but I did like the fact that you could send a quick private message relating to a post. Those comments are what I miss.
So our karma was deleted, when do we get the new option?

These two comments pretty much cover my feelings on the matter. The points never mattered much to me. (Except as a joke between Ken and I) I really do miss reading the comments left for me by folks who might otherwise not interact with me much on the boards. I also miss leaving a little note that I appreciated someone's comment.

When does the new stuff happen? I know sometimes there are issues with rolling out new stuff.

It happened pretty seemlessly at another forum I am on. They enacted the Like feature with an auto save feature. If the forum was down at all, nobody said anything. When they added both of those things they also enabled, or maybe it was part of the package, a pain in the butt thing that asks you if you are sure you want to navigate away from the page you are on when you hit the back button.

Glad to have this up and running. Its quicker and easier to find than the old rep button. It still accumulates points? Is there going to be a trade in value for those?

I wonder if the points you get grow like karma or does it always stay at one.

The button image is not showing for me. I just have a red X and the word Thanks where the button should be. Anyone else?

It let me hit Andy twice in a row which is different from the old rep system.

Still no button, no red X either. I even logged off and back on again, but nothing.

There is a single point per thanks. You can thank a member a couple times in a row, but you will need to spread it around.
