    Default "Thanks" button

    Mods: Please don't auto delete this due to the similarity of another thread. It's different.

    As PokeGym uses, a Thanks button would be very useful. It gets rid of a number of spam posts that can bump old threads up, leading to other users to make posts to the likes of "this was already known..." and such.

    The button I mention earlier is not like the Karma mechanism that did not work. This Thanks system is doing very well on PokeGym, and I feel that it would make a nice addition.

    Wait, so how is this different from the "Like" button?

    (No vote yet, it's a question.)
    The word "quadragonal" is the only word with "dragon" in it where "dragon" is not a root word. That makes it awesome.

    The only place the "thanks" is shown on is on the thanked post, not a good/bad rating.

    Huh. I know a board that implemented the Thanks system as well, and it actually displays the number of thanks given and received by a user in their post bit.

    I think that can be disabled, because the site I've seen it on doesn't have that.

    I don't see why the 'rating' 5 stars system can't be used

    UP.

    Nobody uses the rating system indeed, and "thanks" button is significantly different than the "like" button. Like could be used for almost everything, thanks on the other hand would only be used for posts that actually help you out not to mention how it would reduce the number of spam posts. (e.g. thanks)

    Spam posts aren't so much of a bother that we would need anything to "significantly reduce" them.

    How about the "thanks" button encouraging the users to help out more?

    The way I see it, this is exactly the same as a like button. I already gave my reasonings inside that thread for why I think it's a bad idea (popularity contest, off-topic posts asking why someone's post was thanked so much or not as much, etc.) so, DOWN.

    There's a lot more harm this could cause than good. Since when has spamming up old threads been such a major issue? Even if it was, I don't think thanking a post in a dead thread as any purpose :\ I'd also like to note 'Liking' a post and 'Thanking' a post is pretty much the same thing.
