Just an Idea
Has it ever been considered to put in a thank you button? On a couple of forums I am on they have a thank you button at the bottom of each post. So if you agree with someones post, or if it was good or so on you click that to show support.
There have been many times where someone posted an excellent post and something that I would have said and instead of posting good post right after them or quoting them or such it would be so much simpler to just be able to click that. After the button is clicked then it shows who has clicked it for all to see the support that post is getting. I causes the threads to be less cluttered with Good Posts and such responses. Just an idea.
