I agree that it was a bit of a disappointement when the thanks points were removed, but it was for the best. I understand how difficult it must be to watch all the threads, making sure that no one was begging or offering thanks points. Thank you Justin for letting us all know, hopefully they will be back soon!
Justin, I can completely understand your reasoning behind taking the Thankz Pointz away. However, I have to question why everyone has to be punished for what others are doing? To be honest, the Thanks points was no big deal to me rather we have them or not. It is a big deal to some though. Especially Kids. Believe it or not, the Thanks Points could be a self-esteem booster. Make kids want to help and do good deeds to earn thanks points and those points mean a lot to some kids. Exactly like a reward for helping others. However, I have seen so much of stopping things or taking things away or changing things on this site because of others abusing the site where as others who do follow the rules get the same punishment as those that did abuse the rules. I'd like to make the suggestion that you take the Thanks Points away from those that are abusing the the Thanks Points system instead of away from everyone. I'm sure it is possible. Isn't that something that a moderator of a website should do?
I'm kinda concerned this might happen in other areas as well, such as the Gift Exchange. Is that next to be taken away because so many people are not following the rules, including but not limited to some of the Moderators on this site with fair gifting practices?
My point being is that everyone should not be punished for others actions. If it was something that could cause harm to someone then I could understand. Kinda like the Clubhouse plus in Webkinz World. If parents had any kind of problem with that Clubhouse then they shouldn't allow their children access to that clubhouse or if they found a problem with it afterwards, they should of used the parental block that Ganz provides. Ganz had to close it because they didn't have anyone to Moderate to make sure members were doing what they were supose to be doing in there. So therefore, it was closed. That was a different story vs this site. The site has Moderators and Administrators to see that all are following rules.
I do not mean to sound like I'm questioning your judgement. I'm just a firm believer in doing what is morally correct and right. I do not doubt that you want to do the same. I just feel that you didn't give this a full thought process of the effect that it could have on others that are following the rules before you made this change of taking the Thankz Pointz away.
I appreciate you taking the time to read this and allowing me to express my concern and suggestion.
