View Full Version : Idea...about feedback

I frequent some other forums that use the same software (Vbulletin) that x360a.org uses and they have a tool called the "thanks" feature. When someone lets say posts a super helpful post in a game you can click on a link in each users post and give thanks. On the left side where your user name is there would be a listing saying "So and So was thanked 2,567 times"

I think it would be a cool and useful feature on this site. Maybe even an award for being thanked 1,000,5,000,10,000 times...

We already have a post rating system that isn't used properly anyway (although it should be) so I don't think this would work :)

I think this is a good idea though. Especially on a site like this where tips and help is really prevalent.

Sure, it would be a good addition if people would actually use it, but if they don't use the similar feature already in place why would they use this one?

Because i dont think people even realize thats even there. This way its open and there and you see the big icon saying "thanks" right by the reply post.

People bring this up a lot. It most likely won't get added because people will abuse it. People will get their friends to thank them a lot even if they don't deserve it.

I literally shot this exact idea down two hours ago. Not to mention the dozens of other times it has been shot down before that. It isn't going to happen.
