Thank you's
I noticed "Thank you's" going both ways are counted under our avatars. Is there some purpose in that? Do I just put the "thank you" in a reply to get it counted?

I'm not sure what the purpose is (although I'm sure someone will come along and be able to tell you), but there is a little button on the bottom right corner of each post that says "thanks" .... you can click that button to show your thanks to someone else for posting something useful or sharing information (or whatever your reason for wanting to thank them is!).

You'll notice that it doesn't show up on your own posts (I mean, why would you thank yourself, right?), lol.

Print on those buttons is so tiny! Thanks. Makes thanking people mechanized, doesn't it? I'm not of the Facebook generation.

Okay, I guess I'm finally going to ask my stupid question that I've been putting off now that this thread about thank you's has come up. My computer skills are still so limited. Things that should be obvious often simply aren't! Dumb question.......Why is it that when I click on that little "thanks" square down in the corner, my user name comes up under the post, BUT over on the left side where it says: The Following user(s) say thank you for this useful post; UNDERNEATH that it says: (in light blue print), "Remove your thanks". Well I don't want to remove my thanks, but I don't want that "Remove your thanks" to stay there either! Is this making any sense to anyone? Is there something else I should be doing/clicking on? Now I'm trying not to feel like a total idiot for asking. Jeanie

Kittykins--
I repair computers professionally, but this this is not about your being unsavvy on computers. It's about the silliness of trying to make every site into a social networking venue. There's nothing wrong with you. You and I just see the silliness of it. I expect "like" and "dislike" buttons to appear in the software soon, and ratings for each thread and each post: "Was this reply useful? Rate 1-10."

You can't remove the "Remove your thanks" button, sorry. You can threaten someone with it. :D

It's meant as just a way to say thanks if you don't really have something else that needs to be said. Like if someone shares a pattern or something.

It doesn't get you anything and there's no race to see who gets the most. It's just a little nicety. If you don't want to use it that's fine.

I think the 'remove your thanks' message only appears to you, and it's there in case you accidentally clicked it when you didn't mean to. No one else sees it.

Oh but I do want to use it! I was just wondering that if I click on the "thanks" box and that "remove your thanks" thingie pops up do I just leave it and it goes away on it's own? I understand what the thanks is for.
