    What if you add "Thanks Count" so that we can filter and order the threads by number of thanks they're got.

    Typically more thanks = useful thread.

    This will help us to easily find the old helpful threads we 've missed...

    but i think that will be bit boost spam because then thanks metric is going to be super important all of the sudden and people are going to make more fake account to thanks themselves to boost their posts... instead of the button they can give the thanks option in the search .. i mean we can filter the posts by searching a keyword and use the most thanked option to filter out the least useful posts ..

    It's a good idea in theory but it would be abused within a day and you would be surprised at how many crap threads get a lot of likes, or threads bitching about things get tons too so you could wind up with a feed full of negativity.

    When it comes to spam, people would also spam to get more "Likes Received" as you may see some newbies most of the time spam to get more number "Messages/posts"....

    Mods & Executive VIPs get number of thanks even if they post pictures of a puppy! (I think its more about respect for them) - After that its about the content.

    I am not against it but thats how I have seen it work here.

    I do not agree.

    This creates a value on the thanks button and that is not what it is intended for. That will just created shuttered groups where people exchange likes on BSTs to boost that.

    Thanks button is just if you found something useful, or you like what the member posts and those are opinionated. Using those as a metric of trust are reliability is like pumping GSA ser links at you MS thinking google will give it more trust because it has more of them

    Also I don't see the thanks button as something that is just for useful posts. I sometimes press it if something made me laugh. I agree that it would create a value for thanks and next thing we know there will be people selling them on fiverr.

    You can already do that! Go to the bottom of the forum list and in "sort threads by" select "first message likes" (very weirdly worded but ok).

    There's a guide for this in the VIP forum I think.

    yes but this will encourage it more and also the standards are going to be set as reddit that the more you have upvotes the post is authentic but sometimes that's not the case and also the sales thread gets more likes too .. and right now likes factor doesn't play that big role in the sales thread but when it become an option to filter than many OP's are going to run towards getting more likes than reviews.... so i guess that's why putting it inside the search option is good rather than putting out on top of the forum layout..
