    Is there a way to see where I'm being thanked?

    As of my writing this post I've been thanked 137 times. Is there a way to do a search to see what posts I'm being thanked on? I'd like to know what I'm saying that is thank worthy so that I can do more of it

    And to all who have given me thanks, I appreciate it!

    Search for the posts you have made recently. If the thanker wants to be visible you'll see that name underneath the post. However, thankers can remain undisclosed if they want to.

    Pay attention to other people's posts, and you'll also see the "thanked by" section underneath.

    I was wondering the same thing. The only way to do it now is to, as 'swagled' suggested, go back and review your posts. It would be nice if there is a way to add a "# of Times Thanked" column when you view a list of your posts with the number of 'thanks' listed for each post.

    I'm not so sure this whole "Thanks" and "Thanked" is worthwhile.
    Anybody know why they started it?

    So they could be thanked for the thankless task that admin usually is?

    I currently do that, but I leave a decent amount of posts and that isn't always practicle; often I look through my recent posts and come up with nothing. I'm looking for the lazy man's way of searching (handed to me on a silver platter with a touch of a button)

    I think (but not 100%) there is a way for the admin to turn on the function within the vBadvanced to provide a notification to when and whom/where you were thanked. You would get a notification just like when you get a PM, be able to go into a page that you can review the thanks you have gotten on what posts.

    Re: Is there a way to see where I'm being thanked?

    Related..... one wonders if a shall we say 'unthankyou' feature would not at the very least, be entertaining.

    Yes.... I of all people.... said that.

    And the following.

    I have been surprised .... how well , on other topic area forums, that feature has worked.

    Seems to cut down on the worst of the 'repetitive' spin / counterspin.... while improving the quality of what remains - and encourage more thoughtful posters to join - and speak up.


    Wouldn't it be swell if we could have a Monthly Industry Sales thread - that did not degenerate into GM 'blows' / GM vs. Ford ?

    that way, those who get THANKed the most, would be inundated with notifications!!!



    however
    what I really want to know
    is
    Is there a way to see only threads that contain at least one post judged worth THANKing?
    & (edit)
    Is there a way to show how many THANKs a thread has in it?
    &
    Can I create a list of approved THANKers
    so only posts *they* THANKed are used as a criterium?
