    Question Thanks button?

    I've seen a lot of vbulletin forums that now have the "thanks" button on them. Any plans for that here? I wish I could hit thanks a lot on here.

    Just use rep-points. That little icon that looks like a set of scales? Click that and it gives the person a rep-point. You can leave them a message too.

    It's what I do.

    I like that there are no thanks button and display of thanks, and that the reps don't show. That way the rep is a thing between the repper and the rep'ee

    I think it helps keep a place calm

    We don't have any plans to add it. Use the Rep comment feature to say thank you.

    How do you know how many rep points someone has?

    You don't. It's private. You can find out how many you, yourself have in User CP but you won't find out what someone else has unless they tell you.

    There's a stunningly beautiful FAQ written by Medievalist about rep points here.

    You can't see the exact number of rep points a user has, but:
    There's an invisible text string that lists "levels" associated with the total number of points. If you position your cursor just under the P in the Posts count on the left of any post, you'll see some "tool tip" text with a descriptive phrase.
    "Levels" are in the FAQ.
    Stories n' Stuff:
    Close Quarter and Slow Waltz (M/M paranormal romance)
    Missing Persons (fantasy short) in Trust and Treachery
    Takeover (M/M contemporary romance)
    CTRL Me in Rules to Live By (M/M contemporary romance)

    COMING June 16th: Just Business (M/M contemporary romance)

    Oh that's awesome! I will check that out and use when necessary. (I was also wondering about the Thanks button.)

    So...thanks! =)

    I must say, I'm in favor of the privacy of rep points. So thanks, AW. For whatever reason, I feel that's in line with the spirit of the forums.

    If you hover your mouse pointer under the "P" in the post counts of anyone's post, it'll display a comment regarding their reputation. It's neat.
