Why not change that "thanks" button to a "solution" button(or add one) indicating that "this was the post that solved my question" that would keep people from using it to thank people, because (in my mind) there is a big difference between the two. It could be a 'solution'(with a check mark icon representing it) short, sweet, and to the point

I once suggested something similiar, to replace the "mark as solved" option. Namely, the "mark as solved" would be an icon/button/link on every post for the OP. The OP could mark a thread as solved, and indicate what post solved it in one easy click.

However, theory aside, I think there are software limitations on this.

Thats a shame it seems like an easy solution

I don't know how vBulletin works.

I imagine it would simple to code, but the time and testing of it (not to mention possible forum issues) would be a strain.
