    Hi,

    I think there is a problem with the Thanks Option .. you might wanna check it.

    I'm new here, so I might be wrong .. but here's the thing:
    Tho I have given '3 thanks' by now, I'm being shown that I have
    'Thanks: 3 times'
    'Thanked: 0 times'

    Shouldn't it be viceversa? like ..

    'Thanks: 0 times'
    'Thanked: 3 times'

    or maybe your english is different then mine :) .. now that I thought of this a bit longer, I think it's english issue here :))
    anyway .. the thread is created ... :)

    I found the naming also irritating when I was new here.
    I'd suggest changing "Thanks:" to
    "Thanks given :"
    an "Thanked x Times in Y Posts" to
    "Thanks received x in Y Posts"

    "Thanks" means how many times you have thanked someone. "Thanked" means how many times people have thanked you for posting something that they consider was of value.
