    Apologies are due for adding to this already lengthy debate. However .......

    This particular thorn in the side of various Forum Admins has been dealt with elsewhere by using this little VBulletin add in. http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=122944

    Its a jolly good tool and I believe it has the rare quality of being very popular with Forum Users as well as Admins and Moderators. This appeals to me because I really dont like to see discord.

    Perhaps it might be useful here as well, although Im very mindful of the possibility of Forum Overhead, especially with the number of users mentioned by Bhodi.
    Its a suggestion anyhow and I promise to keep my nose out of this debate in future !

    We've used a "thanks" plugin before. Not sure it was this one.
    It would make our db very unhappy and we had to remove it. We are now on new hardware, and are (keep fingers crossed) in the process of upgrading to vB 4. We have decided to look again at a thanks feature once we run on the newer vB release.

    Re: How much post need to post signature?

    Maybe instead of a "thanks" button, something could be implemented where when the OP marks the thread as solved, they can either click on the post that fixed it for them, or add their own description on how they've fixed it?

    A lot of the time, new users leave once they fixed their problem, never to mark the thread as solved, post who's response fixed their problem, or come back again. This makes it hard for others with the same question to gain much from a thread.

    I'll have to check if only the OP can mark threads as solved.

    .... as does starting a post with "Hello dear." This is normally something only Mrs Lisati and other close family members say to me. In other contexts, well....

    Only the OP and Staff can mark threads as solved.
