    Giving Thanks?

    I am new here, and I have seen on a post that I've been 'thanked' a couple of times. But, being new here and still finding my way around, I can't seem to discover where I can 'thank' others on their comments. Is this a feature that is unlocked as one participates more on the forum, or am I simply overlooking something that should be obvious?

    You should be able to thank people, as far as I know, even though you're a newly registered member.



    And if you want to give someone a "reputation comment" (that is, giving another poster a private comment for their post), you click the small 'Star of David' right next to the thanks-button.

    1. I always thought it was like a Sherriff's badge (circles on the points)

    You were not blind, the thanks option used to be restricted to junior members and above. It wasn't always so; at some point in the past, trolls and spammers would join with offensive usernames and make use of the thanks option in order to have those names listed at the end of people's posts. So, we had to limit it and the only way to do so was per usergroup. You were promoted to junior member status after writing 10 posts, so you could use it shortly after creating this thread. Thanks for bringing it to our attention; in the meantime, we've found a way to link it to number of posts, so now new members should be able to use it as well, so long as they have made at least one post.
