    Default I'm not saying I'm definitely doing it, but

    Do you think many people would be upset if I went ahead and re-named the Thanks button to the more appropriate Like button?

    What is the actual purpose of the button?

    I know it's to make someone's useful post stand out to other posters because others appreciated it. I get that.

    I don't get why the total amount of thanks someone gives or gets is recorded on the side.

    Just wondering if it's part of the system or an add on?

    Seems to just show who the better posters are.

    Just an idea. Do away with the total recorded thanks/thanked on the side. Still have a button (a like button what you suggested would be appropriate) to still recognize someone's useful post.

    Like on Facebook (ex: 11 users like this post) -for PD. Maybe even have a link on the 11 to click on and it'll list the users who thanked it, but not actually record the amount of thanks someone receives or gives.

    I think not having the total amount gives everyone a fair chance to state their point and not thank someone who is known for having a ton of thanked posts.

    An example would be say you and I. Not trying to call either of us out on this, but you have over 7,000 thanked posts. I have just over 200. I think for most users to see the amount you have versus what I and we post something similar, it might make people be more inclined to thank you because they're used to seeing you with more recorded thanked posts.

    So just an idea I'm throwing out there and thanks Hicks. I hope it all makes sense.

    I think I've managed to remove that part from our user info on the left. Hopefully nothing else is missing? I think I isolated it to just the Thanks stats.

    *edit* Dang. It also removed the button itself. I'll have to leave it all for now.

    Maybe replace "Thanks" with "Agree" ? I'm not sure. "Like" is pretty nice as well. but too facebooky lol.

    Hicks, I think you need to be more of a hipster. Screw FaceBook and the "Like". Thats old news. Go with Google's +1

    Found out there was an update to the mod, now that it's installed I was easily able to remove the needless statistics that used to show up under your avatars.

    I'll be honest, I'd rather have the needless statistics than the annoying pop-up that occurs when you thank a post now:

    Indeed, that does fix it. At least on Firefox 5.

    Is there anyway still see who has thanked you without having to sift through every post you've made? It was a convenient way to find out if someone agreed with your post during a debate.

    If you went to your profile, you could click on the statistics tab and there was a link there to "find all thanked posts by travmil" which is now gone. I would use it to see if anyone laughed at my one liners. I stopped most of my serious debate a long time ago and now I just shoot spitballs at the tanks rolling by.

    I actually liked the "thanked posts" tab as well.
    It was useful to find the "heated" discussions where you took part in. Without having to remember them or look through all the latest topics.
    Not necessarily perfect but since there was nothing better it was good.

    I don't think there's much use in seeing all those stats under other peoples' avatar.
    But if you can list your own posts that got attention - it's nice. Especially if you were absent for a few days.

    Very briefly we did, but it was quickly clear that it was too much trouble for this community (the ability to anonymously click that - button on people).

    I could see that. I don't mind the +1 idea, nor Like.

    I also didn't mind the statistics personally.

    Finally, how do you see your thanked posts?

    Yeah the +1 idea was a huge fail here.

    I kinda liked the Thanks statistics. Wish we could still see them easily.

    Could we get the thanks statistics back Hicks? I really liked knowing when someone agreed with my posts without having to go to the User CP and all that stuff. Maybe there is an option for those of us who want to see it can, and those of us that don't want it don't have to have it there?
