    Right now, it's either on for all or off for all, so unfortunately not.

    What was the reasoning for taking it off in the first place?

    I thought that was discussed earlier in this thread?

    With all due respect to Scot Pollard, I find it patently ridiculous that anyone would conceive the thanks statistics as "seeming to just show who the better posters are." If anything, it just shows who has been here a long time and is not indicative whatsoever of whether or not someone is a "good poster." So basically I think Scot Pollard is equating long with good, and if this is the case, I question why he thinks it is helpful to have the Thanks stats removed while keeping the join date and the post count statistics easily viewable. I think that statistics being easily accessible is convenient for both for new and "old" posters alike and still don't completely understand the logic of why it was removed. If you are interested in improving your statistics just post more of what you post more often, believe me, you don't necessarily have to improve the quality of your posts.

    I just didn't realize any good was coming from it, so it seemed to me that it was "just there", and that's why it didn't take much to convince me to remove it.

    But if multiple people are saying it's beneficial, I can bring it back. Just speak up so I'm sure and we're clear.

    I support them. Not worried about it either way too much, but if there was a vote, I'd vote for them.

    I really like them. Like I said, I like knowing when someone agreed with/liked something that I posted. I don't see it as any sort of issue or any way of measuring posters. It's just a neat little stat. I miss it.

    Maybe they could do a "% of posts that were thanked" or "avg. thanks per post" stat :P
