Hey.

If we can't get rid of the thanks button, can we at least move it away from the quote button?

I mean, I went to quote Hammy elsewhere and nearly thanked him.

Also, If I do thank someone by mistake, can I unthank them? Not going to risk trying it and have this thing show I thanked someone.

You need to go to user control panel and edit your profile. You'll soon figure it out, poppet.

Tool ate. :(
Shit happens. The older you get, the more often shit happens. So you have to try not to give a shit even when you do. Because, if you give too many shits, you've created your own shit creek and there's no way out other than swimming through the shit. Oh, and fuck.

Once you click "thanks," the button should change to "Meh." Click that to undo the "thanks."

What is the max size of the thank counter before it rolls over or perhaps ABENDs?
... uhh ... I mean "crashes". :notsure:

32767 and then negative numbers?

Or a good solid mainframe approach such as 2**24 (at least). Unsigned of course. :coolspecs:


There should be a way to thank someone directly without having to click each post.
Perhaps a thank box on the profile page that allows entering an arbitrarily large integer to be added to the account's "been thanked" counter.

"Thanks" data are stored in individual rows in the "thanks" table, so theoretically the number is limited by available storage space.

Doesn't work that way. The data are pulled from the database via PHP functions and fed to the templates to generate the HTML. There is no database record that contains a total for anyone to fool with.
