Thanks!

In response to several member requests, Discuss Cooking will be getting a new feature to let other members know you appreciate their posts. This should happen this week.

We will be adding a feature for Thanks. There will be a button in the post, next to Quote that says Thanks. When you click this button you can say thank you to another member for the post and leave your own personal comment.

This feature will replace the older "Reputation" feature. The Thanks feature is a more positive and visible system for members to express their appreciation for your contributions. You will be able to view the comments in your User CP and, if you like receive a PM when you receive a Thanks.

Good point Andy. I have over ten million points to use. That should at least buy me a free month on DC.

You'll need to talk to Peggy about cashing in your points. Good Luck!

I just got off the phone with Peggy. He's sending me a new toaster for signing up to DC's new premium Thanks Plan! My rep points are being rolled-over. Yay! LOL

Yeah, I noticed mine was gone earlier
So is the Karma balance/icon.
Now, when they get the like button working, I guess we get to hit the Like button then send the recipient a PM with the usual short message as to why Cool

One Adam-12 One Adam-12 see the man. Reporting Grand-Theft Karma. Other thefts reported in immediate area proceed with caution.

Unhappy

OK, I currently have nothing but a report button. And frankly, I'm a little irritated to lose my rep comments. I don't much care about the points or anything like that, but I liked to see the comments folks made and they are all gone now.

That was an unpleasant side effect. No thanks on that one.

Alix was the first to give me a rep. *hugs* I miss your comment; it encouraged me to stay engaged at DC.
