Meta Question

Anyone noticed the new "thank...." button under replies?

Asked by bunnygrl (7152points) March 14th, 2011

I noticed it in my question here under each reply there are the normal GA and flag buttons and then a “Thank….” button too. I can’t remember ever seeing this before, although it might be because I haven’t posted many questions (two actually, although I’ve answered loads), maybe it’s only visable on your own question? just curious….

I’m pretty sure it’s always been there but only for the questions you, yourself, ask.

It’s a feature that was added in the past year, I think. It allows the poster of a question send a personal note to an answerer that includes a link to the original question. It’s a nice feature, as it saves the extra steps of cutting and pasting the link to the question.

I’ve been here for almost 2 years, and it’s been here the whole time.

Been there quite a while, I believe.

Been there ever since i’ve frequented this joint. I remember being a noob, I thought every answer had to be sent thanks in this way. We’d be on for bloody hours! I see GA’s as a form of thanks anyway, far less time consuming :¬)

@bunnygrl yes that button is only visible on any question you ask in case you want to personally thank a person for their answer or comment on the answer they gave. Pushing that button will take you to that particular Jellie’s PM box. You have a very impressive lurve score for only having asked 3 questions.

aah!! I think I get it now. Thank you honeys <hugs fellow jellies> and I’m assuming that the “thank….” button isn’t appearing on this question because it’s in meta? I feel a bit daft now…. well dafter than I usually do anyway :-)

@ucme I’ve always thought that using the GA button is a nice way of saying thank you too

@AmWiser I’ve replied to nearly 1000 questions though lol :-) I’ve had lots of questions I’d have liked to have posted, but I always stop and then get worried that it’s a silly question or I’ll look stupid etc.

huggles honeys and thank you all for helping, even though this was obviously a daft question, even though I didn’t know it at the time (honest)

I hope this little contretemps doesn’t prevent you from asking more questions, though.

janbb's avatar

@bunnygrl I give you lurve because you give out more hugs than any other Jelly I know. Keep ‘em coming!

bunnygrl's avatar

@WasCy I’ll try to ask a bit more, instead of just answering questions <hugs> xx

@janbb sending lurve right back at you honey <throws mountains of hugs…... giggles and throws some more> I’m a bit of a huggy monster to be sure :-)

huggles honeys <hugs fellow jellies very tightly> xx

What @Simone_De_Beauvoir said is correct.

bunnygrl's avatar

<hugs @seazen_ > thank you honey. I do feel slightly silly for not knowing the answer to this now, it seems so obvious when its explained.

@bunnygrl I used to see it but after reading your question I looked, and it is not there anymore.

flo's avatar

@bunnygrl please ignore my answer above.
The answer is it has been there for as long as I can remember.

Hugs xx @bunnygrl to you too.
