Here's the quick reply...I knew I'd seen it somewhere. It only seems to be enabled in Administrative forums though. I'll get it put on the list.

the thumbs-up feature looks more like a fb-like bootleg thing than a thanks-list. A real thanks-list feature should be moderated by community managers (or country CMs, moderators, etc). I mean, anyone may request help to repair something which will take 1 hour to be fixed and whoever fixes it gets a "thanks" point from a moderator.

In my opinion, any feature which enables you to avoid reloading the page, would be great. For example:

- Quick-edit feature with ajax.
- some "last topic titles"/"new posts" list on the main page, so you dont go to main page and then click "new posts" and then click the thread.

I noticed this....

Since the change in the forum, I can't seem to find any AVAILABLE help requests in the US, now. It seems like there really is a "race" to see who can get the most "thanks."

Quick reply would be most appreciated. :nod:

I admin a phpbb forum and I was happy to see the thanks feature implemented. It works better as a rep system than sheer amount of posts. Some might take it as a thank-you race but IMHO the system encourages good posting.

Now let's wait for that mobile skin and cool emoticons. :p

+1. they should add a "quick reply" feature and remove the thumbs-up thing.

The only thing I see about the list is that it doesn't really provide any feedback about the content of the posts whatsoever. There are people who are going to thumbs up every post they read, and there are people who are never going to even think about hitting the thumbs up.

Just my 2 cents...

No idea if that last method was the key or if it just requires you to force reload over and over. :roll:


For me it seems that it just took a long time to display the little graphic.

On the main pages of the forum, where it has the Thank you lists and the little stars next to them, I couldn't see the stars either until the thumbsup appeared. I thought maybe the Cleaner Forum script or Adblock was keeping them from loading, but it wasn't.
