    Iv lost an incentive to share :p I had like a whooping 40 thanks. Now they are all gone :( I think there should be some sort of system to reward those who help other and share downloads.

    Yeah everyone misses it, but it's a security issue. So, sorry but it's not coming back anytime soon.

    The reward system is that you have access to this forum!

    I'd much rather have access to the forum than have the thanks button. It was nice, but not worth the security flaw.

    Would you rather have a "thanks" button and nowhere to use it?

    By the way, nice post, "thanks".

    I also loved that button. Got a question though, let say after some time it is back, will we have over previous thanks stat?

    Man I have had quite a few good laughs today at BHW, but that button tops it all I think.

    'Thanks'

    Oh so it was that little bugger that caused all the problems? Ah well, screw that then :D

    I'm tempted to click but I'm homophobic and did not take my medicine today so the gay bit scares me.

    Youll get well soon. I totally understand that your recent breakup with your boyfriend resulted into this psychological dilemma. But im sure you can recover. Hahahahah.

    Love,

    It is actually an Inherited condition. Nothing funny about that.

    These are not as much fun though :D

    I miss seeing the thank yous too but it was a 3rd party modification and these things have exploits. What we can do is turn the reputation into a "Thank you" button and "No Thank you Button". If you guys agree I will have my programmer set it up so it's in a similar place as the old thank you button.

    DiamondDave-

    That sounds like a good alternative.

    P.S. So glad to have the site back- I was suffering withdrawal!

    Who cares. You don't need a thanks button to know people are grateful.

    If you need someone to tell you thanks every time you share something, just don't share. :)

    The biggest problem with the thanks button being removed is an inflation of "Thanks! Nice Share" posts following a quality thread. I began to notice this last night on a few of the new shares. When the thought enters your mind(or lack thereof) to "thank" someone please hesitate as it only serves to piss off the regular members. We know you like the great posts, we all do!

    THANKS!

    Well then everyone needs to be informed we are now using the REP button as the THANKS button.

    Maybe one of the mods could toss up a new thread about it and show them where the button actually is, cuz I think a lot of people don't even know haha.

    Just a thought.
