Forums User CP Question

You know where you access your "User CP" and on that first page it shows where others have sent you a "thank you" and you are given points?

1. What does accumulation of the points do?

2. How can I send someone else a thanks?

Hey Guys...

I don't think the "points" mean anything at this moment... Maybe one day we'll be able to cash them in on a new Airstream!! Maybe we can pool them and get one!

The only way I know to "give a thanks" is to click on the "Thanks" button at the bottom of someone's post...of course, you can always PM someone your appreciation but it won't show up in the same place...or give them any "points"...

The "thanks" is a holdover from the original karma system. If someone posted, and you felt strongly enough about it, you could click the karma button. Depending on your feelings, you could either like or dislike the post, and karma would be added or subtracted from the poster's karma bank. Some of us had huge karma reserves, and when they liked or disliked a post, it was like getting run over by a truck.
One particularly snarky user had such a huge karma deficit it looked like the national debt. After much consideration, negative karma was discontinued, and positive karma evolved into the thanks button.

Frank&Mike,
I wanted to thank you for asking this question, because I've wondered about how the thanks system works. I clicked the "thanks" button at the button right (just to the left of the Quote button) and sent you a thanks for asking this question and starting the thread. Take a look at your User Control Panel and see if my thanks and comment show up. This hopefully will solve the mystery!

The explanations are most helpful and I appreciate the replies.

Hey Steve - the "thank you" from you is showing up in my User CP. Looks like it works.
