    Re: What is the new "thanks"-button all about?

    Something I noticed today:
    The "thanks"-function no longer seems to add reputation points.

    I received a couple of thanks but got no points for it. I clicked the "thanks"-button myself a couple of times to observe the points of the receiver. Nothing changed.

    Did someone change it or is it just a flaw in the system?

    I have experienced exactly the same, but as I wanted to credit the quoted posting with a a thank, by using the thankbutton,this time a RP was added!

    I do not see the pattern yet, but this random RP effect is better.

    If you wish to issues a rep point, use the rep feature (the little white scales-- or angel as I call it).

    Thanks, but I kind of knew that already...
    It's just that the thanks button had the feature to add exactly one rep. point regardless of the rep. power of the respective member.
    This seemed to have been off tracks today, but maybe it's fixed again as I received one point from "thore_hund" (funny name btw).

    This doesn't matter at all really, just something I noticed and felt like sharing.

    Re: What is the new "thanks"-button all about?

    I tried using the Thanks button many times today but not only didn't it work, it deleted the Thanks icon itself. What is happening? Is there a limit on using this feature? Also, the last poster at the very bottom of the thread just before it changes to a new page--that unfortunate guy doesn't get a Thanks icon by which to thank him on my computer.

    It works for me. Does anybody else have this problem?

    The Thanks button will always disappear, as the Thanks feature is Ajax based. Once you expressed your thanks, the button will vanish.
    This is a placeholder for a signature.

    It usually works for me as well. But sometimes I do need to refresh the page for the button to operate.

    AW: What is the new "thanks"-button all about?

    Works for me fast and normal.

    If it don't works and the button won't work or the thanks will not shown, I delete just my browser-cache and restart the browser, after then it works again.

    I had this problem with my Opera 8.x-browser all the time. Last week, I´ve downloaded the new Opera 9.0-version. Since then the "thanks"-function works again.

    Re: What is the new "thanks"-button all about?

    Somewhat releated questions -

    What is the difference between the reputation and the reputation power? How do they change?

    Does the number of posts being thanked is added somewhere and affecting the reputation?

    Besides, I used to see who is viewing the thread and now I can't... Why is it so?

    Thanx
