I thought I'd point out something I've seen in a lot of threads regarding thanks. Here is a sample thank you post in which someone was thanking me for posting a solution to a problem they were having. (I edited the actual users and thread names) In that thread was a post from helpfulmember giving a fairly detailed explanation for why a problem was happening and what to do to correct it. It even went so far as to quote a source to make it easier for the guy to understand the steps he needed to follow. It solved his problem and he was nice enough to leave a comment post telling helpfulmember thanks, but didn't actually use the thanks button on the actual postl. That's a common thing that happens, and isn't even what prompted me to post this thread. What happened next though is kinda funny. Someone else used the thanks button to thank the guy who made the thank you post. (No one actually gave a thanks to the helpfulfulmember's post though). lol Did the OtherMember just think it was cool that the RandomMember had acknowledged how much he appreciated the help? Or did he intend to thank the helpful post but hit the thanks on the wrong post? Whatever it was, it just seems funny that the post solving the problem didn't get an official thanks, but the thankyou post did. Anyway, I have plenty of thanks and rep so it isn't a big deal or something where I'm trying to get more. I just thought it was worth pointing out since I've seen it for a lot of other peoples posts when they've helped someone as well. edit- The point of the thread is that sometimes the actual useful post receives NO thanks at all, but the 'thanks for the help' post does get some thanks. Does the guy saying 'thanks for the help' (but not using the 'thanks' button), actually deserve to get a 'thanks' more than the guy who actually made the helpful post? :cool2: lol I just thought I'd mention it so more people will remember to use the thanks button for the posts they actually want to thank.
