Post Thank You Hack 7.7


About this hack:
One of the biggest problems on forums as you may know is 'posts boosting'. There are users who LOVE to say 'thanks' when ever they can. How can it hurt? Their post count goes up, they have nothing to loose.

There are also users who really like to express their thanks to post but don't like posting a post that looks like they're post boosting.

Then comes the moderators who have to delete people's thanks yous so a thread can look readable with out the thanks yous thrown around.

Finally comes the posters of these useful posts. They have no idea how many people really likes their posts if only some people say 'thanks'.

What this hack does is fix ALL these problems - except those users who like post boosting. This places a button called 'thanks.' When a user clicks on it, it places his username in a box right under the post saying that so-and-so says 'thanks' for the post. Every-one who clicks is placed in one box.

By giving your users the extra feature, you forum will look allot nice and organized. It is a guaranteed liking by ALL the members of your forum.

Features:
  • Uses vBulletin easy Product installer/updater/uninstaller
  • Uses AJAX technology so your users don't have to refresh when they thank.
  • Places an easy to use button next to the edit button
  • Separate looks for postbit and postbit_legacy

I've had this problem for sometime now - and it's just getting worse. I've reset the counters numerous times to no avail.

Could anyone give me some specific guidance on fixing this? I don't want to turn this hack off since my users are accustomed to using this on a daily basis. Thanks!

*EDIT* NEVERMIND!

I found what I was looking for. I hadn't previously noticed that there's a menu option for this hack right there on the big menu in the AdminCP. One of its features was exactly what I'm asking about below.

-----Original Post-----

My apologies in advance as I wouldn't be surprised at all if this has been asked, but there are 100 pages to this thread so I'm just going to ask:

Is it possible to delete a specific user's thanks? We have someone on our forum who mis-used this and racked up about 1,000 fake thanks just to be funny, and I want to remove them if possible. Thanks.

Thumbs up Works great

This was my first mod install. So I was a bit concerned about doing something stupid and "nuking" our vb forum, but it went smoothly and works great...

Upgraded and some of my users get a no permission but their are no usergroups denied premission

Your user account may not have sufficient privileges to access this page. Are you trying to edit someone else's post, access administrative features or some other privileged system?
If you are trying to post, the administrator may have disabled your account, or it may be awaiting activation.
Edit: After it does that the thanks are still visible where they thanked, if that makes sense!!
