This should seem pretty obvious to most Jr VIPS, but for most of the people NEW to a forum, I've got a great little trick for you. The thanks button is a way for people to say "thank you" to someone for posting something valuable and helpful. Not only does this give "rep" to the poster but it also archives all of their truly beneficial posts. Where is this archive kept? In each persons "profile". Just hit statistics, and click "Find all thanked posts by [ username ]" If you're stuck, confused, bored, frustrated or just wanna research a member, thats the best way to find quality posts fast!
