I was just thinking. Instead of having to thank people by repping them, there could be a "thanks" button? It could be something that someone helped you, and you want to give that person recognition. But that help does not really warrant a rep point, or you cannot give a rep point as you are only a junior member (like me). It would look something like this: Spoiler The Button Thanked xx Times in xx posts - Reflects how many times people have thanked you for a certain post (reflects on how much each of your posts helped others.) Thanks: XX - Shows how much you thank people. This was something i used frequently on another forum i go to, and i found it quite helpful when people reviewed something that I wrote, said they liked my poem, and keep up the good work, or stuff like that. It was hard to reply to their posts, all i could say was Thank You. I find that if that is the case, a "Thanks" button could do the trick. It Would look like that: Spoiler After all, I think too many "thank you" posts by the author of a thread is counted as spam isn't it? Unless it is in reply to a specific comment and has a purpose. That's about it. Hope this could be implemented if mods or admins find it a good suggestion.
