    Default Adding a "Thank You" Button



    This is, I am told, a very easy addition to the VBulletin software, but it sure adds a nice touch for members to be able to say "Thank You" to one another.

    So many times as I read through posts here I want to reach for the "Thank You" button to let another member know I appreciated their taking the time to answer my (or someone elses) question, for posting up a tutorial, etc., and the button to do so is just not there..LOL!

    The upgrade is free, and here's a link to the VBulletin page with all the info:

    [AJAX] Post Thank You Hack - vBulletin.org Forum

    On the forum I was on we also created a "Trash" forum, and it was only visible to the Moderators and Admin's. This was so when potentially bad (or just bad) or old undesired threads are come across by the Mod's, they can simply transfer the entire thread into the "Trash" forum, and then the Admin could clean that out once a week after confirming that it was all actually unwanted material. That way, the threads needing deleted didn't just sit languishing in the forums (and available to the public) until they had a chance to be vetted by the Admin.

    Just some thoughts..

    OK Mike

    Its something that we can look at.

    You can rate threads here, but I can see where you are coming from being a bit more personal.

    With the trash one, we mods just delete stuff as it comes up, and there is actually a fair bit of stuff that does get deleted that you guys never see because of the use of keywords that will automatically cause a post to be held for moderation. You probably don't need a big imagination to figure what a lot of those keywords are.

    Again though anything that may potentially make life easier for us is something worth looking at

    Thanks for the suggestions

    Vinnie,

    That's one of the things that makes this site different, in that the members never see 90% of the stuff that the Mod's pull or correct before it causes any issues. I for one truly apprecaite the efforts you all (and now Carposio) go through. Thank You.

    I know all too well that being a Mod is sometimes just plain "work", but please, don't ever let it take the fun out of something you enjoy.

    [Edit note] Just noticed the new addition; Looks great!

    Mike

    I wouldn't do it if I didn't enjoy it.

    Refer my Evil Twin in the Off Topic

    And all suggestions will be considered, as you can see
