I have seen "Thanks" and "Thanked" alongside member
names in posts here. How do i go about thanking someone so that
it will show there ?

Press the little star in the bottom of post, it's right next to the quote button.

There is a little medal with a star near the bottom left of the post window, click that and that will give the poster a Thank You:).

The sticky called 'Guide to Forum Features' surprisingly contains, well, you could call it 'a Guide to Forum Features'.

Maybe I should just carry a towel around. Although I do when I travel (HHG2G), maybe I should keep it handy when I am home.

This point is addressed in one of the stickies (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=726219).

Edit: forgot to add I merged a thread in here.

Let's not overdo it. Have you considered a pouch? Kanguroos appear to find them handy.

Now, as to the blinking attribute or the flashing arrow ...

I made it bold.

I am going to try to get something to draw attention to the sticky and thread.

A Taser leaps to mind.

OTOH, here's an unexplained feature (I believe).

Starting a new thread with the word 'thanking' in the title shows a list of existing threads containing that word.

Starting a new thread with the word 'thanks' or 'thank' (or even 'thank you') does not.

Perhaps adding a few posts containing additional terms and their variants (such as thnak and so on) would change something?

My understanding is that future versions of vBulletin will include a "tagging" feature (similar to CMSes like Wordpress or Drupal). This could dramatically improve the functionality of the "similar threads" feature.

I am sure that this was a bold move on your part. But, excuse me, what, exactly, did you bolden? The sticky in question looks much the same to me as do the others.

The suspense is growing. The new release really is something I am looking forward to, if only because my curiosity is starting to ,,, itch.

Thanks.

You can bank on them.

Like Mr Micawber's 'something', they will always come up!

In retrospect, my comment in the preceding post "Thanks. You can bank on them!' is probably a little enigmatic.

This link, and the link within the link, may explain any enigma that may be thought to exist in the above post: http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php?p=4441125&postcount=19

sorry folks, also a forum newbie (ish) Why do some threads not have the little medal for thanking? I wish to thank someone, but can't because there is no icon on the post to do that.

Cheers

posts older than when the thanks feature was activated don't have the ability to thank.

The sticky on the Thanks feature has the reason for that (it is first on the bold list)
