No “thanks” button like other forums ...
Would it be a good idea to have a “thanks” button like in other forums, which adds to a users points? I like to use it to show my appreciation to other posters for helpful information.
I think the Devnet team is working on something similar. I doubt it will be a Thanks button so much as an upvote/rate up button.
Check out the thread [developer.qt.nokia.com] about it.
That’s quite a different concept really, what I am trying to rally is a thanks button for individual forum posts, that users use to show their appreciation and/or agreement with a specific post in a thread. Not an overall resource or maybe even thread. It allows a user to get appreciation for insightful information they post that people “like” :) talk.maemo.org has this as does meego.com forum.
