The only issue I have with the new BHW

How should the thanks button and thanked users be displayed

  1. Bigger thanks button and show each user who liked/thanked

    35 vote(s)
    87.5%
  2. Keep it as is

    In my opinion, the only issue with the new forum is that the like/thanks button is so small and that the names of people who liked a post do not show unless you expand it.

    I think that when you can easily see the like button, new users are more enticed to like/thanks a helpful post or thread. Furthermore, I also believe that showing all of the likes on a give post or thread is not only helpful to see everyone who liked it without needing to click to see who, but also seeing each name is a lot more prestigious looking than to just see "liked by x23 people".

    So, to sum this up, I think that making the thanks button larger and more noticeable and showing all of the people who liked a post automatically being expanded will promote more sharing of quality content, because we all know people feign for like.

    I agree this needs to be fixed its way too small to see. Plus seeing all of the thanks on the main post without expanding creates trust and shows people that its a good enough post to read.

    I still prefer the old school BHW way where it just lists all the names automatically.

    xenforo kills old bhw. trust me once you get used to it you'll never want to go back :D but ya I agree about listing names. in the image I posted when you click it will expand the list.

    Not sure if displaying who thanked is a good idea. Some people tend to feel like they need to thank just because some "important" member thanked, and likewise they don't feel like they have to thank when no one important thanked. I might be wrong but this is what I noticed.

    Well more thanks = more sharing by members, its not like it would hurt anything if your theory is correct (and it is).

    Acutally, Dagreyon is correct. Now that I think of it, if someone I respect has thanked a particular post, it makes it more likely that I will read all of it. Having the list of member names adds social rating to all the posts.

    I liked the previous "thank" system; it was chaotic, but its style was something unique to me. However, other than the "like" button being small, I'm actually fine with the current system.

    Yes the like buttons are way to small and to dark to see them. It took me quite some time to realize that this thumbs are the like buttons.

    Agreed! At the very least we could go the facebook route and show something like:

    User 1, User 2, User 3 and 47 others liked this post.

    I was going to create this thread too!!! That new thank you feature is the worst part of this update. The old one was 100x better than this.
