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
  • Places all Thanks into one small box

Prefer you to do it

As its your hack.

Would like the SPANKS hack to run along side the Thanks Hack.

Because we use the rewards system of ( vbexperience ) would also like to monitor, a list of say top 10 members monthly/weekly who say thanks and receive thanks ( and Spanks )

Happily, paypal a contribution
For 1 and 2, you just need to run a query that gives you that info. For 3, use my post groan hack.

Looks like the update is only for the blazer issue. If 7.6 is working for us, do we need to update?

I installed this and am getting a 404 error displaying in a javascript alert dialog when I click the "thanks" button in a post. Any idea what could cause this? I uploaded all files, installed with Overwrite Allow = Yes. I'm running 3.7.1 and this version says it's compatible with 3.7.x so I should be good.

IGNORE THIS - A village was missing their idiot, he returned and everything is working now.
