Yup - this is a pretty cool group of people. My day isn't complete unless I spend a few minutes (or hours sometimes) here.

Isn't "Thanks" Klingon for going to the loo?

Yup... there's a lot of words that have over time, morphed into another meaning and the reason being is that the majority have come to accept it's "new" usage. Popular lexicon. Much ado about nothing here.

Karma's cool... like passing out good vibes, man. Sharin' the love...
The thumbs up "thanks" button's OK, too I guess, in a PC sort of way... but passing out karma denotes something a bit different, IMHO... just a fellow 'streamer appreciating the idea/thought being passed on. Nuthin' to do with religion... just appreciation.
Peace, y'all...

Exactly my sentiments. Good Karma makes you feel good (kudos do too.) Thanks don't quite have the same feeling - something you hear all the time and never give it any thought to them. Sometimes they can be really shallow sometimes really sincere.

When someone gave me Karma here I felt special. Receiving Kudos would give me the same feeling. Receiving thanks for a post... well... the feeling would be a little tepid. Maybe Andy would reconsider and rename thanks to "Kudos"

So now will there be a limit on thanks? A limit of gratitude? There definitely is a lack of civility in our society, I guess it is just reality now. So how about we find out?

yes, there is a limit. If you hit this limit then you are giving out too much thanks and will be officially considered a "Thanks Slut".

Seriously, it's set very high. If you are hitting this limit on a regular basis, I'd ask you to review the posts you are giving Thanks to and make sure the content is worthy. We don't want this little feature to be abused and for some members to just dish out thanks for the sake of it or to try and game the system. If we find out members are doing this, then we will contact you and warn you about doing this. Please don't ruin the party for everyone else. A little thanks goes a long way, no need to be belligerent about it.

I see why you changed this, you cannot give too much karma. You had to change it because of that. Now it is easy give too much thanks. I feel very bad that I started this thread and killed karma. I hope my Kharma is not effected by killing karma. Sorry to all about this, hope you will forgive me.

Belligerent thanks, now THERE is a fantastic notion.

Anyway, I think a lot of people have had some fun on this thread, and maybe a few people have aired some grievances on this thread, but after all of that, I'd like to post a SINCERE thanks to Andy and the moderators on this board. They do a fantastic job of moderating, occasionally policing, but most often simply HELPING the various denizens of this forum.

This really is a wonderful and unique place among the InterWebs.
