    I’d love to see the introduction of a “Thanks” button, so many times people post stories or information and it seems weird to “like” the content, a “Thanks” would be more appropriate.

    I also think this lends itself to a more conducive forum and helps members feel aligned to each other...

    I'd like to see the questionable button return :grinning:

    But I do get the reasons for not having it.

    What would a Thanks button look like? I feel a Thumbs Up is the perfect Emoticon for a Thanks. lol

    I think the “thanks” just gives a bit of a personal touch, everyone does thumbs up/down, lets be different!

    Let’s shape the emoticon world of RL forums...

    I was thinking of a:

    "hey dumb cunt, how about you keep this on topic and stop ruining this thread" button?

    I recall an optimistic rainbow one, yet a questionable one?
    I don't recall that.

    I think it's more sincere to reply with 'thanks"

    Bring back the thumbs down and questionable rating buttons.

    Members fear the negative rating, thus I believe it has a positive impact on the forum as it forces members to post at a higher quality.
