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.

Features:
  • Uses vBulletin easy Product installer/updater/uninstaller
  • Uses AJAX technology so your users don't have to refresh when they thank.

It's not hard to do but I dont think most people would like an email for each thanks. THey could be getting emails every min.

Well, I think there are a few ways to implement it.

1) Like thread subscription. Only one email would be sent until you visit the thread again.
2) Like forum subscription. The user would receive daily or weekly updates. In the daily/weekly email, the user will be notified about all the thanks in all the threads he/she has received during the past day/week.

Of course, it would be ideal to give users the option to choose whether or not they want notification and what type of notification (instant/daily/weekly) they prefer.

I was running 3.0.12 & went strait to 3.6.1. I never removed the hack when I up graded.


Also when I get the right queries where do I run them?


Thanks for helping me

Are there any plans to implement a "No thanks" addition? Where garbage posts would be given a thumbs down. Possibly reducing there thanks amount? I think that would make an excellent tie in.

Also, it would be nice if this could some how be integrated with the user rep system. Members on my board don't even bother with the rep system, if would tie say 10 thanks = 1 rep point that would be great.

Either way I'm satisfied with it just as it. It adds a great dynamic to my forum.

Both are done already. This hack works with rep system, and there is a Post groan hack.

Question:

How can I remove the "Thanked Posts/Thanked" bits that display in every user's post?
For instance in my forum it goes
USERNAME
(title)
(avatar)
Join date: 2006
posts: 55
Thanked: 1 *
Thanks received: 1

I'd like to remove that.

Also, where is this? I only found this for Vbulletin 3.5.4, not for 3.6.1

Thanks for your awesome work, it's pretty cool =)

Cheers Abe1, I've found an easy solution though as it looks like you've already worked this in.

What I did was configure the thanks to give +1 reputation. Then I enabled the rep system and hid the Rep icon from the postbit.

Now when someone get's thanked it shows up as new rep on the usercp with a link to the post. Easy as

If I'm not mistaken, simply remove the following from your postbit/postbit_legacy template:
