OK. This is the one (and only) I received.
Thanks Redduck, assuming there has been enough time for all 3 emails to arrive to you, I'll have to assume that the Thanks button does not work on my Anrdoid Nexus 7 tablet. To be more precise, it does not work with just using the touch screen. It does work if one sync's up an external keyboard. I have to admit this is probably an obscure point to many reading this . Thanks for helping me with this experiment Redduck.

And to all those who I thanked but never got the Thank You, thank you!.

Just sent another Thank you from my PC. So you should be swamped with these things.

I don't expect to get a response to a thanks, unless it is a Journey video sent to HFWR as a thank you. For that, anything short of death threats is good.

FWIW, the "Thanks" button was installed on the board in October of 2008.

Forums 101 - posting, accounts, basics

Might be worth your while to spend a few minutes looking at all the other neat features and instructions outlined on that thread...

Thanks, Omni:

I received your thanks in "Latest Thanks Received" via the "User CP", but I did not receive a notice saying, "You have been thanked". Are the notices still viable or did I do something to turn off this feature? (Not that you should know, omni, but maybe someone does).

I have email notification turned on. I think that is how I have become aware of the Thank You's. But also in the upper right corner of page should be a "Your Notifications" and a number of notifications after that.

Now tell us how many rules infractions your User CP shows, they show up even if expired

"Infractions"? (I was never good at math. ) But, as 'Gold Hat' said to Fred C. Dobbs, "Infractions? We don't need no stinkin' infractions."

To find out if the option is selected, and/or to turn ON the notification of a "Thanks", go to the top-right of your screen and select "Quick Links", then "User Control Panel", on left hand side of screen, under "Settings and Options", click on "edit Options". Scroll down to "Messaging and Notification" and then scroll down to see the option for "Receive a PM notification when a post of yours is thanked". Check that box and then scroll ALL the way down to the bottom of the page and click on the "Save Changes" button.

Thanks, DatumPoint5

Followed your instructions. Now I just have to post something that is worthy of a "Thank You."

Yes we do, but after reading braumeister's suggestion I think we should consider renaming it.

I found them a long time ago. I don't get all that many but I do enjoy getting them. I have started using the button myself but forget about it sometimes.
