Default Posting Thank You's

DO NOT post simple "Thanks" to gain your initial post count. All posts containing simple "Thank You", before you reach 10 posts, will be deleted and you will be PMed with the rules. If you do it multiple times, you will receive a warning. 5 warnings are a ban.

If you wish to thank a user, do not simply post a message saying "thanks" without having other content in your message as well. (Like questions or suggestions)

How Do I Thank Another User?

Please press the and the button on the lower left-hand corner of the post. This will add to their reputation without cluttering the forums & display a nice 'thank you' display in a secondary thread. This is the best way to give a user recognition for their efforts.

We would like to introduce you to an old feature that we are re-implementing. Behold, the great "Thank you" button. It is located at the bottom of the first post in the topic, next to the "Quote" button. As of right now, it looks like this:



but we are currently working on making a custom button that looks much prettier than that one.

So what does this mean for users?
It means that you should thank people using this button, and not by posting a simple thank you post. Filling a thread with useless "thank you!"'s makes things disorganized and difficult to navigate easily. It's actually easier for you guys, all you have to do is hit the button. The Staff will start cracking down on "thank you" posts, so if you see that your post was deleted with this reason, this is why. If you feel that your post was not a thank you post, but was deleted with that reason, feel free to PM who deleted it to ask for a reason.

We hope everyone can make this transition smoothly and without any hiccups!
