Just been reminded that thanks and likes used to be next to our names on each post.
Now although the practice still goes on, I cant find them at all anywhere. (hammer) 8)

One of the things we lost when the new layout was adopted unfortunately Bob.
We now only see the likes and thanks on the individual post that has been liked and thanked.

There's one little remnant of it left: if you click on a user's name to show their full profile (not their picture, which shows a mini profile) there's a summary of Thanks given and received, right down at the end. I'm not sure if it's accurate or not. It's missing if I look at your profile Bob, but visible for Nev. I can't see my own.

I can see yours. :D There doesn't appear to be any logic or reason in whose are there and whose aren't.

Quite right Phil. I can find no settings anywhere for switching the function (e.g. show thanks etc) on or off and to make it even more confusing some can see some that others can't. I cannot see Andy's for example but can see mine and Lurkers. I will make a note for Charley to investigate but I wouldnt hold your breath.

I was never a teenager, even when i was a teenager. I just like things to be accurate and in their place. Someone thanked me ( :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: ) but I couldnt find where that was stored.
On other web forums, that info is easily available to the person concerned.

Sleep...., lost....., zero.

It was useful when the thanks were all listed, as sometimes someone would thank you a year or more after the post and you could look back and occasionally add more or newer information to it.

Phil, try going to the User Control Panel, Board Preferences then Edit Global Settings. You can opt in to get a PM or email if someone thanks you. The message includes a link to the post they thanked you for.

I can't see an equivalent for someone just liking your post though.

That sounds a bit needy to me.
