i definetly agree. i mean, why should you even post if all you are going to say is one flimsey little word. think about it, what a waste! just saying thanks is polite, but like, thanks for what? it's a good idea to show your felling in your post. not just a simple thanks. reping someone is usually a good way of saying thanks. i always include what i am repping for in the rep message. otherwise, nobody really knows exactly what it's for.

so well, thanks. you will make wi a better place☺☺☺ this should be stickied!☺!

Exactly what I was thinking.
It's not really a conversation at all, and it's very one-sided if nobody actually replies to anything anyone says.

That has happened to me before too,
It's pretty sad to see really good posts just ignored and forgotten.
I try not to let that happen to others.

I agree!
You should always include a nice message for the person when you give them a rep, so they know how much they helped. Thanks for your kind words.

I agree. But sometimes I don't really feel there is much more to say.

Default Re: Instead of just saying thanks..

I agree. That's a great point.

It's nice that people say "thanks for posting" but they shouldn't post the same thing too often, and they should quote people rather than just saying ''thanks'' to a few people.

REP!!!

I agree!
I usually do, if you just say 'Thanks,' it doesn't make that person feel like they helped. Like if I said, 'What do you think about Twilight?' and the person said, 'i love it!! i really like the part when...etc' And I said 'thanks.' They don't feel like they contributed. It can go either way.

Great thread!

Default Re: Instead of just saying thanks..

I agree with you but I also agree with Funnyhoney. Sometimes there is nothing more to say or the original thread is not what they are chatting about when you get to the page it is on and what you were gonna say seems kinda weird.

I done this a couple of times, gone to the original post. Go to the last post to post .....read a few ahead and sometimes I go "WHAT" and look for another thread.

Very True! Backflip15

This will also help all the posts flow together rather than just being a jumble of mixed thoughts.

Opinions? Please post them.
Hey, White Have you ever seen any of IceCube730's threads or Hmm's They always take the time to personalize their responses in their threads. Me...most times I kinda let the thread take on it's own life. I don't like bumping them and if they have a life of their own, they will continue. The only exception to that rule is the Train of Thought thread. That is one I LOVE revisiting But, I guess it is a matter of preference.
I do understand what you are saying, rather than say 'Thanks for posting' and looking like a vain attempt at 'bumping' the thread, give the respondents something to think about. Save some of what you are trying to say for later. Don't give them all of the information at once, hold a bit back so that you DO have something to say later that isn't just a 'fluffy BUMP.'

Default Re: Instead of just saying thanks..

I usually try to personally say thanks, or refer specifically to a post that I found most helpful. As mentioned in a post before mine, some people are happy if you say thanks, others, not so much.

If all of us stay true and genuine to "ourselves" then "it's okay". After all, you can't please all of the people, all of the time.

That's pretty much my point!
A lot of times saying Thanks for posting is to bump up the thread, which is considered spam, in a way. It's much better to just look back and say something when you know exactly what you would like to say. I've seen many of the people you said's threads, and they are VERY helpful. I see a lot of people like that, and it just makes me smile reading each and every one of their posts. [rep to you]

Yup, that's what I mean too. We want everyone on the forum to feel like they have done something great each time they post. Thanks is okay once in a while, but you really should add more to it. It can go a long way.

It's interesting. Sometimes I go to a post only to discover that I have nothing to contribute, so I don't. I think it's silly to repeat what several others have said. Of course there are the times when someone posts at the same time I do and we both say the same thing. It happens. On the flip side, I very often post suggestions and/or opinions without receiving much feedback. I can only hope I'm helping.

On the few occassions I have started a thread (not in my nature), I do check back and post on the suggestions and comments that are posted. Everyone wants to feel appreciated, so we should show it more often.

thanks to all who have posted - you've reminded me how to be a better person in a way that seems small, but I know is big!
