Default Thank you button is gone!

Did I over use or abuse my thank you button on this site?

Mike, It works for me. Sometimes on older threads it seems to go away also the editing feature seems to go away on older posted threads as well, not sure what the criteria is for those rules.

You only get so many "Thanks" to use in a day. Now you just have to wait for your new allotment. It's a common occurrence to to wear out the thanks button.

#1. You can't thank yourself.

#2. There is a daily limit of ten, so you can't over do it.

#3. Certain forums have it turned off.

#4. After you thank someone, the button expires. You cannot thank them more than once.

#5. Yes, you do have to be logged in.

#6. You must have made one post before the thanks button is available.

#7. If a post is older than 30 days, thanks not available.

The deal is that we don't want someone to attempt to thank EVERY post on the board. (It's been tried.)

I Would THANK a few of the posts on this thread, but then of course I'd be short again on how many Thanks I can give on other threads.

It's Very Easy to burn through them rather quickly, especially if there are a couple/few threads going at the same time with lots of pictures posted and/or some great information being shared.

All you can do is wait for the button to return and then go back and try to thank the ones you wanted to if you can find them again and if they aren't too old to be able to thank.

I know Harry said there's a daily limit of ten thanks, but sometimes it seems like it's a 'multi-day' limit of ten as you wait for it to reapear only to be able to thank two or three posts and then have to wait a day or two before you can thank a couple/few more.

Whatever the case, I'm just glad to be able to thank some of them using the button instead of posting comments, as it lets them know their posts were appreciated without derailing the thread with unnecessary comments.

I have on many occasions though Posted a Thank You Comment when I can't do so with the button.

Thanks for explaining that! I will try to not thank everyone that I feel like thanking.I do want to say thanks for such a wonderful site.It is like therapy for me to sit down and see what you guys are dragging in, out of the woods and fixing up.I was talking to some guys at the Brooks show a year or two ago and we were telling engine finding stories and I asked this guy if he got on SMOKSTAK very often? He said Oh...not to much..maybe 5 or 6 times a day is all! We all got a big laugh at Lauren for saying that but man I sure know what he means! I cant wait to log on and find out what has happened in the few hours I had to be gone!Thanks to all of you for posting and sharing this great hobbie thanks to Harry for a place to do it.
