I felt like a baby sitter especially when my helper started complainging to mea bout his mechanic..... "He never lets me solder!" " I feel like a gopher" to which i responded "you have been here a week get over it!"

      Does everyone agree? If I take it off the display below your post count you will have to drill all the way down into a profile to find the thanks stats.

But I do like the thanks in the threads, where you can put in your hidden message sort of speak. Get rid of the thanks under our names....

        I agree with taking it off each post.

        I also think better than a thanks button would be like a "+1" or "right on" button to indicate agreement w/o actually having to make a post for it.

              i think the thanks is a little distractive and will blow over as we get tired of it showing up under all the post.

              there is a rating system for the post and it never really gets used.

              i would think if you got rid of the thanks and just went to a thread rating, it will simplify the process.

              a few years back there was the rating system of members. it was more of a popularity contest with the other members. glad it vanished as some loved you and some hated you. i was borderline

              i do like the high lites/ colors on location and occupation. i wish people would give a proper location as it really helps to understand which codes apply. also a real occupation so others will know a little about the poster.

                I'll give this a day to see what everyones opinions are. If nobody wants it then we can just take that function out.

                    the thanks stats dont take up space it is just up there

                    the thanks button is ok but i like the idea about the A+ on right on ,something so you dont have to put a post just to say that you agree with what the said .
                    but some love to post to get there count up

                      I'm new here but have to say this is one of the best laid out forums I have joined. I belong to 5 other's and this is a great site with a lot of activity going on.

                        Whether it be in a blog or whatever I believe we should have a "New Feature Upgrades for Dummies". I am certain there are a lot of advantages to the upgrades which will be wasted unless some one gives us a little jump start.

                              I haven't looked at everything yet but I like what I see so far, Josh

                              Not a big deal but if you get a chance to work on the Smiles I like to have a couple added if thats possible. Every now and then I'd like to give someone the thumbs down sign. You have two smiles with thumbs up and one with a middle finger but my emotions sometimes fall in the middle there. Also missing is a sign for money $$. I think this one would get used a lot.

                                Thats not a middle finger.. its a nice finger in the eye . If you guys can find some thumbs down smilies I can put em in there. I just dont have the time to track em down. Be careful smiley hunting though. There are a lot of spam sites out there that lure people in with the promise of smilies.
