Still have mine.
If you run Windows, suggest you scan your computer with "superantispyware" free edition.
www.superantispyware.com.
If that does not get it, your browser has very likely been corrupted. Reinstall it. If you are running IE, Microsoft has excellent instructions on how to do it without loosing anything. I have done this several times for people, in fact last week.

My THANKS Button is Always disapearing on me from Over-Use. (gone again now after hitting it a few times this morning)

I see you've Thanked 7 posts in the last couple days.

Probably just burned through your daily limit, which even though I remember reading we're allotted something like 10 per day it always seems to be a lot less than that. Seems more like a running limit of 10 Thanks every 2 or 3 days instead of daily.

If it doesn't re-appear for you later today, check again tomorrow and it will probably work for a couple posts again, and then maybe a few more again the next day. If you use it a LOT like I do, it seems to take longer to recover. If you rarely use it, it will likely always be there for you. (up to that limit of 10 in whatever timeframe)

I think I got in 4 or 5 Thanks this morning before mine burned out again, and I will try to play catch up with a few other posts I wanted to thank when I can again. Sometimes I can get through several different threads and still have it showing, and other days I can burn through it on a single thread and still have to play catch up later.

The Thanks Button also disappears altogether after a certain timeframe, so you can't thank a post that's over a month or two old.

The 'superantispyware' check probably wouldn't be a bad idea, but if everything else seems to be working OK, I think I would wait before reinstalling the browser and see if the button re-appears, which I'm sure it will.

THANKS per day is limited to 6 or something like that.

My THANKS button comes and goes all the time........it's one of the great mysteries.......

See POST # 15.

#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.)
