    Displaying Thanks

    I have noticed that the thanks that a thread receives is only displayed as a total, and not the individual thankers. I preferred the old way as you could see who gave the thanks, especially if it was yourself.
    I can see reducing the size of the display on popular tuts has its advantages, still prefer the old way though.

    I agree as well. On mine it only displays "The Following User Says Thank You to ______For This Useful Post". Am I missing where the "total thanks" is displayed?

    Much agreed. It's a little weird right now that it'll say "The Following User Says Thank You to WiiJohn For This Useful Post:" with no names.

    @Krank I think it shows that on the posts with large amounts of thanks, like the softmod guides.

    Edit: Oh nm, it tallies the number once 2 thanks are given. With only one thanks it will say Following User etc. I much prefer it as it was.

    Well from what modderman was telling us in the irc earlier today the large number of thanked names was casuing spikes on the server every time someone opened a guide with a large amount of thanks or something to that effect.

    Makes sense. Shouldn't be too difficult to edit the BB code to only show actual names if the person looking @ a thread is a site donator. At least they've paid towards server costs.
    Thank me or Spank me but leave some feedback

    P.S. if you mean thanks hit the 'thanks' button

    If you really mean thanks donate

    Gone are the days of seeing names along with the thanks, at least for now.

    That's a great suggestion... that should be doable...
