'say thank you' option
« on: February 22, 2009, 05:19:46 PM »
Is it possible to introduce an option to express ones gratitude to the post of another? One more button near the 'quote' to click if you want to admit that the post is important/needed/helpful/matches your own opinion. It would stop the quoting whole posts with 'thank you for this added' what only enables to load your forum rank. Those who liked the post would be listed in the bottom of the post It would also make choosing 'post of the month' easier.

I've only been here 5 years, and this is the first I've noticed this facility!
I've just rated this topic a "5"!
If you're living a happy life as a Christian, you're doing something wrong.

I just rated the Harry Potter topic a "1." :P

I mean something like this. You see on the bottom of the post?

Please do not start to discuss the forum I've linked. It's just a sample.

Yup, there is a thank you mod for SMF forums, that is sort of ported from vB.  It would be up to Fr. Anastasios to install it if he thinks it is a good feature to have.
