I know on other sites there is an option that allows users to thank another users comments it could be a little icon that you click on and at the bottom of a users post there will be a list of those members that thanked you. 8)

The gift of Hicks should be more than enough thanks and yes that gift is non-refundable. Not sure about the button though, it sounds like a good idea but quickly escalates into a popularity contest.

It's more a question for Darkness. I'm sure we had it in the past but it was removed for whatever reason.

Meh... who needs a friggin' button.

Thank You everyone for making this site a joy to visit.  I visit this site multiple times each day simply because YOU LOT* make it worthwhile.  Thanks for everything.  Especially all the fish.

There.  Done.   ;D

In the past I had the thought of an "upvote" button strike me numerous times but to be honest I wouldn't like it. We are not Reddit.

This.

I also think it could escalate into a sort of popularity or attention seeking contest. Just look at Youtube, people saying things just to get thumbs up.

While here, when someone says a joke or gives a thanks, it feels much more genuine because it's done for the sake of it.

I like the fact that this forum doesn't have any of those fame/infamy bars that you see on some forums, amount of likes etc. Just good ol' post count and rank based on that.

^ Exactly.

We toyed with the idea of a Karma system where you could give pluses and minuses to people. We saw it done on the old Alien Experience boards and while the majority used it correctly, there were certain groups deliberately abusing it to give them pluses and punish other users. Then there were those users who were deep in the minus felt pretty bad because of it.

Obviously such a system is prone to abuse and it's not needed.   If you want to thank someone, then do so!  lol.  It's not hard.
