Umm...we have the Quick Reply feature. I saw it this morning.

EDIT: Okay...now it seems to be gone.

iOS Tapatalk 2 sucks.

Not sure about this new system of "thanking" a post. It seems as this would create a horse race of sorts and only the more popular posters would receive credit. This could discourage others from participating at all.

Just my 2 cents...

Don't be sucking me into your vortex. I fold before the race begins. My full-time job and family is getting in the way of my Waze editing. :lol:

I'm sorry....you lost me after "100 people". :D

I have been using it to thank people who provide good responses to my questions and requests for feedback, or it is a very good point or information for all of us. I have not yet decided if I like it to replace the +1. To me the thumbs up is less visual when people read the thread, but the +1 is a significant note that the next person completely agrees. Maybe with time the thumbs up will be a good substitute for +1 and I will just accept it and move on. :D

I also use this to be updated with what some Champs has thanked and been thanked. It is a good way to "sift" whole forum for important questions.

It's very possible I'm missing something here, in which case I'm hoping someone will explain this. In which case I will definitely thank you! ;)
