Default Thank You Button

Not sure if it's just my acct access or the site, but I cannot select the Thank You option in any open forum.

There is a limit of 10 per day. Have you gone beyond that?

I must have. Didn't realize it was a limited option.
So if you exceed 10 Thank You's it disables the TU icon?

Thank You.

There have been a few of these threads, including (I think) one from me. Any chance of raising the limit to 15? Would lead to a lot less confusion and virtually eliminate these types of questions. I was going to suggest removing the limit entirely, but I assume it's there for a reason, whatever that is.

I've asked for it to be increased about 2 months ago, but it's obviously not a priority. I'll bring it up again, but I won't be pushing our Admin team to do so. They have enough to deal with.

I think 10 is enough per day tbh. Most members tend to post way less than we see. I don't think 5 more will make threads like these disappear, instead once they reach the new 15 then they will ask what happened to the thanks button.


I do think the thanks button should be name changed to something more universal to a "like" button instead. Sometimes I click on a thanks just because something was interesting/cool/funny and not because it truly helped me.

perhaps a more humorous icon as in 'Thank you Sir, may I have another' would be perfect considering we are all movie fans.....

The name is not going to be changed as it was discussed at length before that feature was implemented.

IMO the feature should be used when you feel a post has been informative and of help, and when you don't feel like posting yourself. I've seen many instances whereby a member gives a Thank You and also replies to the post. That action wasted an available Thank You. Get my point?

We decided against calling it a LIKE feature as it was felt that this would turn into a popularity contest. And to minimize that possibility a limit was also put on the current Thank You feature.

It's a thumbs-up icon, so it is essentially a like button already. At the same time, the text below the post says you're giving "Thanks", so it's kind of the best of both worlds

Interesting! I don't mind 'thanks', just for me calling it a 'like' makes it more universal and modern, but that is just my thinking. Cool to know it was talked about already before reaching the decision

Agreed, I blame Facebook on messing my 'wiring' for the icon, before that I just called it thumbs up
Look how twitter has changed how people see a # sign.

It looks like you only thanked 4 posts within the past 72 hours but this doesn't show any thanked posts that have been deleted (hidden).
