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

Thanks for the great hack!

I have a suggestion, if you don't mind.

Could the Post Thanks count be under the 'Statistics' tab instead of having it's own tab?

No. I can't do any more functions in the stats box so I needed my own box.

I pruned my test installation (to reduce the database size ), and I can tell you that the thanks to the deleted posts are no longer counted. So yes, if you prune, you lose the thanks.

Is there a way to manually override the thank you count? A larger number of threads were removed from my forum however I still want the user to have his thanks.

I would like to have Thanked posts show up in the "latest repuation received" area of the User CP, but not actually add any points to their reputation. Is this possible?

We currently allow people to click the reputation scales and send a little message, but the community has chosen not to track points, so that the reputation never actually increases. Is there any way to do the same with Thanks? Thank a post, have the thank you show up under the post, and then a link to it show up in the User CP, but with zero points?

Thanks

Abe, thanks for the update!

For some reason there isn't a Thanks button for any of the posts by the admin only, everyone else has it. I have not changed any of the defaults either, any ideas?
