    The database column that holds a user's "thanks" count supports a number between 0 and 4,294,967,295. In computer science terms, it's a 32-bit unsigned integer. If you're at 0 and a "thanks" is removed for some reason, the number will go from 0 to 4,294,967,295 instead of -1.

    What probably happened is that a certain condition occurred (e.g., a user deleted their own post, an entire thread was deleted, a user was banned, etc.) that caused his received "thanks" count to be decremented multiple times for a single post of his. Since I see this all over other VBulletin forums, too, I'm assuming it's a coding error in VBulletin or whichever plugin provides the "thanks" capability.

    It should, yes, and he should probably do that to avoid undesirable situations like this. :)

    Maybe the integer underflow/overflow only works one way. Without access to the code that's doing the thanking, I can only speculate.
