Hi WoV'ers,

this is a new forum feature , so no longer you have to quote and +1 , instead you can simply give a thank you.



cheers

Fantastic addition. We've been looking for something like that for years. We'll done!

This looks good....

Is there any way to get it so that first posts are sequestered in some way for moderator approval as a way of beating the damned kitchen people?

Cool, but…

If the avatar is the only way to see who thanked somebody for something, perhaps this feature should be limited to those members that have a custom avatar.

Or, make it so that if you touch an avatar, it tells who it was. Or everybody's name…


Edit: I now see that on my iPhone, if I hold my finger on an avatar, the save image dialog box does show me the users name.
Superstitions are silly, childish, irrational rituals, born out of fear of the unknown. But how much does it cost to knock on wood? Note that the same could be said for Religion. I.E. Religion is nothing more than organized superstition.

You can donate a thanks semi-anonymously.....and thankfully, there's no Bird button, as I'd get slammed.....

It looks like the redirect after clicking thanks remembers the post number, but not the page number.

It causes problems in my opinion. People either feel compelled to click it to show support or out of sympathy and others feel outcast if not getting approval. It dumbs down the forum.

Do you feel compelled against your will or do it out of sympathy, or is it just everyone else that this applies to?

I thanked someone a couple days ago. I felt nothing more than thanks for a solid post. How did that dumb anything down?

It turns everything into a popularity contest. Some people don't need to realize they're the weakest link unless Mission declares it so. I feel the pressure to click, sometimes out of sympathy, and to include other posts once I participate. Vsauce says liking is like a digital applause, and applause is often group behavior, feeling the compulsion to give in. I clicked a few times already as soon as I saw the button, but am probably going to opt out and not click thank you on anything. Plus ones are kind of rare, unless Axel is posting. He quotes everything.
