Post Thank You Hack 7.4


About this hack:
One of the biggest problems on forums as you may know is 'posts boosting'. There are users who LOVE to say 'thanks' when ever they can. How can it hurt? Their post count goes up, they have nothing to loose.

There are also users who really like to express their thanks to post but don't like posting a post that looks like they're post boosting.

Then comes the moderators who have to delete people's thanks yous so a thread can look readable with out the thanks yous thrown around.

Finally comes the posters of these useful posts. They have no idea how many people really likes their posts if only some people say 'thanks'.

What this hack does is fix ALL these problems - except those users who like post boosting. This places a button called 'thanks.' When a user clicks on it, it places his username in a box right under the post saying that so-and-so says 'thanks' for the post. Every-one who clicks is placed in one box.

By giving your users the extra feature, you forum will look allot nice and organized. It is a guaranteed liking by ALL the members of your forum.

Thank you! Are there any changes other than compatibility between this version and the 3.5.4 version? Cos that one worked fine for me on 3.6 anyway...

It would be better if it's integrated with a cash system, so that a given amount of money is received when a user get thanked.

MrNase 04 Aug 2006 00:16

Very cool, I might install it. :)

Are they required, because it's worked for me so far. Is it possible to point out the differences so we don't have to do all of them?

Milad 04 Aug 2006 02:39

Not a regualar edit on your side. It was an edit to 2 templates of this hack. If you just install the upgrade, it will over write the old template.
