Does the software that powers the pin have the possibility of adding "Thanks" functionality similar to that seen on Boards.ie?

Or thumbs up/down per post?

I wouldn't like to see that - we don't have the phenomenon of 'thanks whoring' here and it would be great to keep it that way. 8DD

That "thumbs up" "thumbs down" thing really bugs me. Your just giving Trolls ammo there.

I'm inclined to agree. Of course people can continue to send me their appreciation by Private Message. Thanks.

Ditch Dweller, make sure you put the subject matter as 'thanks' to separate it from his daily hate mail. :D

It's just that +1 posts are such a waste of space, time, etc..

Sorry!

Can't say I agree, as most people add a comment to their '+1' posts.

Maybe if we could include a "Get lost Cunt Fuck" button too.

It would be unfair to include one and not the other. Like a sense of balance, RTE style

I think a thanks button would drive down contributions. If you want to say +1 most people will add something, so if you add the thanks button, you may end up removing some potential contributions particularly from those less vocal.

How about a "Thanks but no thanks" button. 8)
