    Can you add a thank button for posts?

    I like the idea of that, I've seen it on other forums and it has really worked well. It gives helpful members more of an incentive too :)

    Good idea!

    Why not just give reputation?

    Reputations rocks here. And when we give rep, you get the ability to send a message with it, that the receiver can collect...collecting is addictive!

    Reputation is "invisible"; thanks are not. Somtimes people want everyone to know how much they've liked something :D

    I'm not arguing for or against a thanks button, mind you.... I'm just sayin' :azh:

    Cool! Is there a way to combine both, or is thanks just a smaller part of the rep system at Taz? Or... should rep be made visible?

    :)

    Rep IS visible, it just doesn't show what exact post has the user been thanked for.
    I understand why people would like a button of that kind, but I remember some instances when I wanted to give someone rep, but wouldn't enjoy it if everybody could see my action. If rep and "like" were separated it would be preferable for me.

    I support this idea. I think it would add a fun twist to TAZ.

    I would only want it, if we still had a separate rep.

    i have it on my forum. It awesome because ppl know if someone likes their content or not. Thanks is a extra way of saying "Awesome post" or "Keep up the great work!" I totally support this idea and i will even give you the mod! Just pm me.
    best regards,

    Altering reputation for public display of 'likes' within posts could do well, without the redundancy of introducing of a new system or losing reputation and reputation comments earned over the years.

    Personally I think TAZ should convert to XenForo and incorporate DarkImmortal's lush Post Rating system.. but that's just me :D

    Does it work like Taz's karma system here, can I send notes to people if I want to give happiness?

    That is entirely dependant on the skin the software is using :)

    I once styled a vbulletin board that had a red background and red text which was impossible to read. Can you see the point I'm making here?

    I meant you already know the answer to that question heh heh - no it doesn't, but you can use so many different images to express anything you like - the only limitation is your imagination :)
