Hi, i've asked a lot of questions these days and have very useful feedbacks all the time. In most time , i don't really know what to say except "thank you", but after observing some threads, it's not so common to say "thank you".

Some forum actually sees these "thank-you" reply as a spam. What's the policy on this here?

if it's your thread then a thank you is always appreciated if another member helps you out

with the technical/code forums it helps to close up a thread with a post saying what worked for you, if you include a thank you that's fine too

it's all about community, I can guarantee that if you are courteous and try to work things out yourself you will get better responses.

And a generic thank you in the this forum is always welcomed.

A thank you goes a long way, so, thanks for thinking of this.

I agree that a thank you is always appropriate when someone helps you out.

And as stated above, if it is for a problem solved, stating how the problem is solved would be a good idea for those searching for the information related to your posting.

I've seen on other forums a feature where one contributor can check a box (or some other mechanism) to thank another for a particular post. Then in each member's profile there is a field for 'Thanked x times'. I always thought it was a nice feature and helps build a profile of the more helpful contributors. Maybe something for WebmasterWorld to consider in the future? (Sorry it its already been suggested).

Hi quiet_man,

I'm not sure that this is a good feature to have on a forum. I think it would create problems IMO.

A nice thank you to the person or people who have helped you IMO is enough. To try to give points in the forum of a check box is just asking for problems to arise.

As jatar_k mentioned it will help close the issue if it's a technical one and not a debate.

You could always sticky the person with a thank you as well, if you feel the debate is better left open.
