Added "Thanks" button so you can easily thank people for their post!

I just installed a new system to our site that allows you to thank people for their post. Under each post is a button that looks like this:



When you click it, your name goes on a little list that will appear under the post.

So if you ever wanted to give kudos for a post but didn't want to do a complete reply (or if you didn't really have the time to and really shouldn't have been here reading posts anyway), this is a quick and easy way to quickly give your 2 cents worth and show some appreciation to the poster.

Also, under everyone's username, you will now see the stats that show how many times that person has said thanks to others and how many times people have thanked them.

I think this will be very useful around here and I hope you guys use it well and enjoy it.

Please let me know if you experience any bugs with it, if it does not seem to work right, or otherwise.
Feel free to practice on this post, click that little image down there to test it out -

Thanks for the feedback and kind words everyone! I had been thanking those that replied but figured I would type a reply on the thread as well! If you guys ever have any ideas for the site or suggestions or need an explanation on how anything works, just let me know!

Re: Added "Thanks" button so you can easily thank people for their post!

This feature impressed me very much. It is a "free" thing to say "thanks" but can mean the difference in making someone's day or making them feel unimportant. Everyone has things to say that make them worthwhile and to validate this is not a hard thing but sometimes overlooked. I want to say KUDOS to this forum for being so willing to say "thanks".

Thank you Rose!
I'm actually in the middle of working on a page to display the most helpful members for each month, I have it 95% completed, I think you will like it!
It shows the top members by the amount of times other people said thanks to them.
I will update the thread when its ready to show off!

That is a wonderful idea. I will say that this forum is one of the most polite that I have ever visited and I think that this feature has a lot to do with it. It is absolutely wonderful here and I feel like I have come home.

Re: Added "Thanks" button so you can easily thank people for their post!

so far this is the only site i have seen with this feature. but i still think it might be unfair, as someone who has been thanked a million times in a reply but never quick-thanked maybe the most helpful member but not put down on the list.

I'm so sorry I haven't been on the forum in so long! Don't worry, I haven't forgotten this lovely website! I moved to a different county back in May 2011 and started high school in a totally different school district. So I'm still adjusting and studying hard, and don't presently have any aquariums. But once I do, I'll be right back on this forum!
