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